Be sure to have enough Nintendo Wii controllers so four players can enjoy more than 80 minigames, quizzes and other fun group activities in “Wii Party.” Board games, challenging puzzles and coordinated movements all mix into this collection, giving players choice and variety in an organized blend without overwhelming them.
This Wii exclusive game utilizes the Mii characters well in a fun collection has something for everyone in all ages, skill levels and player combinations. Four players can split into three-versus-one play or pair up for games like “Fishin’ Buddies,” “Bobsled Highway” and “Teamwork Temple.”
Matching games like “Swap Meet” place the Miis on parade for players to grab and arrange by color and other criteria.
Other activities like cutting food, boat balancing, and horse derby racing, demonstrate more creative activities that players can enjoy and perform safely on the Wii.
The unique Wii remote also becomes a tangible, interactive game element as players hide the remote so other players can hunt for it using audio prompts. Players can also pick the correct sounding remote or play hot potato with the remote acting as a sensitive bomb.
Try out each game individually and set the CPU to a specific skill level. Time-mindful players can even choose games by a long or short length. High scores measure performance, but the
fun level becomes the main focus here as the entertaining Mii character reactions, playful music and appealing visuals all combine into a great group game which adds constant gameplay variety.
