    The only impressive thing about Wii Party is how Nintendo dumbed down and removed the soul from a franchise that was already as stupid and soulless as Mario Party.

    Much like Wii Play before it, Wii Party has about a night's worth of uneven entertainment in it before it's ready to take up a life of farming dust on your shelf.

    Dumbing down Mario Party sounds impossible, but this strips out every ounce of fun or thought from the concept to create the most vapid Nintendo game ever.

    I love this game! This is one of the best party games on the wii by far and it has plenty of brilliant game modes. Its also very simple to play so your nan,mam,little brother, anyone can play it. Miss this game at your peril Full Review »

    This is a good collection of mini games for you and your friends to enjoy. There are a lot of games between regular and co-op, so many that you can play this for a long time without repeating a game. But even once you've played them all they will likely remain entertaining for a long time, they are well designed and simply fun. Full Review »

    This one a great one to play with friends and family. Some reviewers think its no good, but I think it's better than Wii Sports, which is far too over rated. The amount of mini games in this is amazing, I have yet to play a mini game twice yet. The idea of the outside the game mechanics work well, I like the idea of hiding the wii remotes around a room for the others to find. This game is really fun! Full Review »
