    Family Party will please children because of its simplicity and visual beauty -remarkable in comparison with other titles of the genre- and will entertain those who give this game an opportunity.

    As far as mini-games on Wii go, Family Party: 30 Great Games is an above average effort. That may not be saying much, but if you're looking for something to entertain your friends on occasion, you certainly could do a whole lot worse.
  3. This is one of the few compilation games that actually passes the bar, barely. I can't say that this is the one for you, but there is some fun found in this title, you just have to look.
  4. Although you will wonder why Log Cutting is a family game, you’ll have too much fun to really care. If you don’t have anyone to play with, then the fun in this game will quickly diminish, but this game will surely bring families together.
  5. Family Party doesn't bring anything new to the table. It may be a budget-priced title at $20, but I would venture to say that is almost too much to pay for this one.
  6. Family Party: 30 Great Games on Nintendo Wii focuses the gameplay on the multiplayer component and offers 30 different challenges sorted by categories. Too bad it’s not funny, and technically awful.
  7. Don't buy Family Party: 30 Great Games unless you hate video games and want to torture yourself and the friends who come over and play multiplayer with you.

    really fun as a kid, pretty boring as a teenager. I used to love playing this game with my family but now most of it feels effortless andreally fun as a kid, pretty boring as a teenager. I used to love playing this game with my family but now most of it feels effortless and wonky. If your looking for a fun family game, there's a lot better but you can go ahead and get it if you want, but as a teenager by myself its really boring and un-fun. Expand

    Not really all that easy to use, and not very enjoyable. Some of the movements are counterintuitive, and too challenging for young children.

    Do you know what it looks like when someone's self-aware of how bad their game is?

    Say the game is great in the title! Honestly, this is

    Honestly, this is an atrocity of the worst kind. Besides the hilariously awful Player Select (where every time you move your cursor over a save, the kid says, "I'll save here", so if you flail your remote wildly, all you hear is, I'll-I-I'll-I'll s-I'll sa-I'll-I-I'll save" etc.), there isn't anything that's noteworthy. Everything's so bland and uninteresting.

    Just another shovelware Wii game meant to cash in on the motion controls.
