- One of the standouts of the game for me was that Wii Party has you interact with other players not just zone out at the screen! It features 13 different party game modes and 80 mini games so that the game has longevity. How many times have you dropped almost 40 bucks to have the kids say after a few days “I am bored with this game”? Not this time and guess what, I would play it again too!
- My boys loved a mode called “Balance Boat”. In this game you play co-operative style and try to balance up to 20 different sized Characters (Miis) on the mast of a rocky boat to win.
- Board Game Island was a crowd favorite. It’s basically the Chutes and Ladders of Wii Party and requires 4 players. Everyone wanted in on this one!
- I thought the most unique game was House Party. It brings the game beyond your TV screen and into “real life”. One game has you hiding Wii remotes for another player to find (chirps from the remote speaker act as a clue) and in another game you need to pass the remote as if it was a “Hot Potato”. This mode is great for involving “non-gamer” family members and friends.
In short, I think that Wii Party makes for great family fun and is one way, in a world that continually separates family members, to brings us back together, even if it’s just for the evening.
