This is what the Wii was made for - interesting, exciting, addictive fun, suitable for all ages. Whether its two people playing a co-op game or you and 3 mates competing against each other, its absolutely brilliant. An essential purchase.
Bought this really as wanted the extra remote, however the game itself is fab, loads of minigames, love the wheel of fortune type game and the boat game, spent a few hours playing the hide and seek with the kids yesterday and all loved it. For what is basically a free game its fantastic!! and the added bonus of the extra remote is excellent. Well worth it, throughly recommend.
Wii Party is enjoyed by my whole family which is aged from 4 years old right up to 60 years old! There are lots of different games for you to enjoy with your friends and family in four player mode such as:
Time Bomb is a mad game where you pretend the Wii Remote is a bomb and you must pass it around without shaking it whilst holding a button down then the next person grabs the Wii Remote whilst holding a different button. You have to be fairly fast as the time goes down faster and faster.
Word Bomb is very similar to Time Bomb but this time each player has up to 10 seconds to say a word from a given category such as drinks. If you don't say a relevant word and press the A Button in time, then the bomb explodes and it's game over with your Mii flying right up high towards the tv screen!
Board Game Island is a great fun where up to four players take it in turns to roll the dice and advance along a single route towards the summit of the mountain. At the beginning of each turn, everyone plays a mini-game, and the order the players come in determines which bonus dice they receive. This is a great board game where you swing across vines and get thrown up into the sky by a big hand made of rock across the mountain.
Spin Off is my favourite game at the moment where each player takes it in turns to spin the wheel by holding the A Button and swinging the Wii Remote left or right. most of the time you will land on a spot which wins money that goes into the bank. If you our good at the game and a bit lucky then you will land on a mini game battle and, if you win the mini game then you win all the money thats in the bank at the time.
Balance Boat is a right laugh and you must work together as a team whilst you all place your Mii characters on a ship. If you do not balance your Mii's good enough then the ship will tip over and all of your Mii characters will fall into the sea. Befor you place your Mii's on the ship you must play a mini-game together which if you fail to complete the Mii characters will be different sizes making it harder to keep the ship balanced.
Wii Party is the best multi-player game on the Wii since Wii Sports Resort and will be enjoyed by any type of gamer. You must buy this game I have only sketched the surface with what you can do and not only are you getting a excellent game but a free Wii Remote too!!!
