  1. It's got plenty of cute Tamagotchis, but it's short on depth and is seriously lacking in the fun department.
  2. Cuteness doesn't make up for the lack of an enjoyable game - we hope this only serves a short term in office. [JPN Import; Mar 2007, p.60]
  3. A terrible "Mario Party" clone that offers nothing for gamers over five. [Nov 2007, p.85]

    The party mentioned in the title is a very short one and players will likely decide to leave it early to knock on other doors: Rayman: Raving Rabbids and Wario Ware offer much more fun for only slightly more cash.
  5. 35
    The mini-games are shallow and one-player only, each turn drags on far too long, and the sheer lack of any actual “party” elements keeps it from attaining even the basic – yet still redundant – entertainment found in the long-lived Mario Party series.
  6. A boring party game that lacks the pace and originality of its genre counterparts, Tamagotchi: Party On should be avoided at all costs.
  7. 20
    Tamagotchi Party On! does not give me a single reason to recommend it to anyone. The game is impossible to play with a single player, but the absence of multiplayer mini-games makes this game a complete waste of time for the party gamer--not to mention that actually convincing someone to play this game with you will be a challenge.

    DO NOT waste your money on stupidity like this!! They are not even cute. They are dumb little fur balls. The turns drag on for what seems to be an eternity. It might be fun for 5 year olds who are fans but not for anyone else. Expand

    Tamagotchi has been died for years it was almost died when I was 6 and right now I am 10. just like neopets. don't make crappy games. It is not even worth a single dollor. my little cousion played it and he likes almost all games. but he almost snaped the desk in half after just playing about 10 or 9 minutes of it. if it was not a rental I think he would have.
