    Again EA brings you a good title with My Sims Party. The graphics are fine and there is nothing to complain about when it comes to sound effects. Especially the younger gamer will be busy for many hours playing this title, but for the older people this is a nice game as well.
  2. Maybe by the next installment, EA will see that there’s an older audience looking for a solid party title, and give us a little more challenge. As of right now, I’m getting to old for this stuff.

    This is not the ultimate minigame title, but it really is a good example of how to integrate an already known universe like MySims, in a completely new game style. Luckily, the game is attractive enough to attract attention from home children, who surely will have the most fun.

    The youngest of gamers might tolerate MySims Party's slow pace but, even with them in mind, there are better minigames compilations out there. [May 2009, p.84]

    If you've played more than a couple of games in your life you'll breeze through this without any hassle. [May 2009, p.88]
  6. It’s odd that a franchise that has been so creative with its game designs would settle for such pedestrian pursuits. Putting toppings on a pizza? Carrying luggage? Watering plants? Sounds more like “chores” than a party to me.

    At best, the mini-games of MySims Party offer a simple diversion for kids. At worst, they are a mess of poorly-implemented waggle controls. The game is weighted more heavily with the former, so we modestly recommend it for younger players.
  8. MySims Party is not the worst game of its genre, and yet it fails in delivering basic elements such as funny minigames and responsive controls. It's ok for kids, but that's about it.
  9. MySims Party extends the Wii party game choice. Fun if played with three other friends, it gets boring in Single Player. MySims Party is one of the best party games around, but it doesn’t introduce innovation like Wario Ware and, and it’s not funny like Rayman Raving Rabbids. Recommended only for those who can’t live without party games.
  10. MySims Party is attempting to be a party game collection that people will turn to. The problem is there are better games that do the same thing already.
  11. Even though I was severely disappointed with this title, I am still hopeful for MySims Racing, which is the next entry in the MySims series. Hopefully, that one won't be "just another kart racer."
  12. Sterile and predictable, MySims Party seems more concerned with promoting the brand than being fun.

    The characters are still charming but they're fronting a dull, lazy game. [June 2009, p.60]
  14. Nintendo Power
    MySims Party offers a god amount of variety. Unfortunately, many of those games aren't all that fun. [Apr 2009, p.87]
  15. My Sims should never have made the transition into a party game. The main flaw here is that it, quite simply, is no fun at all. Most of the minigames are utterly dull and since the control scheme is basically broken there's no chance that the younger audience will be able to master the game. There are a whole slew of party games for the Wii that offers a better experience than this.

    My Sims Party is easily the weakest of the My Sims games released so far.
