  • Summary: Squeeballs are small creatures manufactured on a secret island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Before they can be sold to children as toys around the world, Squeeballs must be fully tested…to the point of destruction. That's where the player comes in. They blow up, slice, smack, punch, bowl, shoot and skim the Squeeballs through 11 main game challenges. [PDP] Expand

  1. An innovative premise hides a conventional, but fairly streamlined set of gameplay modes that should keep young audiences occupied for hours. A bit more variety in the gameplay could really improve the experience for a sequel.
  2. I'd suggest waiting for the inevitable price drop before checking out this title, and even then, I'd give it some serious thought before picking it up.
  3. I was pleasantly surprised by Squeeballs Party. As one of many who grew tired of party games due to the over saturation of Mario Party games, I found this to be a much fresher, more modern take on the genre.
  4. Its colorful presentation, lovable characters, and overall solid execution makes Squeeballs Party worth trying out with your friends and family (unless they are put off by the abuse of adorable cartoon characters).
  5. Squeeballs Party is a rather simplistic game that certainly won’t win awards but is definitely worth checking out, particularly over and above most of the immense number of subpar mini-game collections on the Wii. If you are looking for a cute and inexpensive Wii game for the younglings, this might just be your best bet.
  6. The only thing that really differentiates it from similar Wii games are the Squeeball characters, but even they aren't enough to make Squeeballs Party worth picking up. Plowing through the 150 mini-games can be done in a day or two, but after a few hours in you'll find yourself not wanting to continue; most of the challenges stop being fun at a startling rate. The repetition is a killer, here.
  7. As cute and as endearing as Squeeballs tries to be, it just never hits the mark.
