  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. The graphics are big and bright for the most part, the actions required are (mostly) large and sweeping, and the rules straightforward enough that even the kids too young to read know what to do when it's explained to them.

    This is a good first effort for a new publisher.
  4. 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.
  5. 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).
  6. Squeeballs Party is a mini game collection with a huge amount of mini games. Graphics and sound effects are really nice, but there is no story waiting for you.
  7. The game delivers pretty much everything it promises, even if the lofty claim of 150+ minigames is a bit over-exaggerated.
  8. 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.

    Pretty sick stuff. But apart from teaching children to become sadistic pet torturing horrors, Squeeballs is a good time waster and young male players will most likely enjoy getting through the main bulk of the 150+ mini-games on offer over a rainy afternoon.
  10. 60
    As a party game it's cheery, accessible, clear in its objectives and pretty much appropriate for young and old alike (unless, of course, you object to using the Squeeballs as test subjects in your sadistic games).
  11. 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.

    While it's certainly a working product, there's little about it that's remarkable, so save your cash unless you're absolutely craving a new mini-game title.
  13. 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.
  14. Cuter than it is fun. The Squeeballs need more time in the toy factory before they're unleashed on gamers again. [Winter 2009, p.62]
  15. Squeeballs may look like fun but it tell the same jokes and brings the same snacks to the Wii minigame party that everyone else already showed up with.
  16. As cute and as endearing as Squeeballs tries to be, it just never hits the mark.
