5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendously Fun August 31, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Carnival Games is the type of game that everyone should have for their Wii. It's great for solo play, or multi-player fun, and never becomes boring, with more than 25 games to choose from. It's extremely easy to "pick up and play" for all ages, and it's good clean fun. The game really represents a carnival in every way possible, starting with the perfectly accurate games (and gameplay), the bright colors, the chatty emcee's, the wandering carnival-goers who walk past you or play games beside you, and even the carnival music playing softly in the background. You can almost smell the cotton candy!
What really makes this game shine is how well designed all the carnival games are. They work very well with the wii-mote, and rarely miss a beat.

Here are some of the highlights of the 25+ games included on this disc:

ALLEY BALL: This game is identical to a favorite game of many called "Skee-Ball". It is definitely one of the best games on here. It feels extremely realistic, the way you use the wii-mote to kind of throw the ball (not swing back & roll like bowling, but rather kind of flinging it up on the 'alley' like you really do in skee-ball). It's sharp and accurate, and hard to stop playing!

SPILLED MILK: This one has you throwing a ball at a stack of 3 milk bottles. It somewhat lacks the realism of Alley Ball, but it still is quite fun. It has you hold your wii-mote as if it's a ball, and you do an overhand throw to try to knock down the bottles. Fortunately it has a little marking on the screen to show where you will hit before you throw.

BALLOON DARTS: One of my favorites. This game has a corkboard covered with balloons that you must throw darts at to pop. You hold your wii-mote as if it's a dart (really!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good as a diversion September 12, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Carnival Games is one of the first titles my wife and I purchased for our Wii (based upon the recommendation of one of my wife's friends). The games use the Wiimote exclusively and make pretty good use of its motion-sensitive functionality.

The games are all the kind you'd expect to find being run by Carnies at a State Fair's midway...the kind you know are rigged, but you play anyway hoping to score that over-sized stuffed bear for your sweetheart. So, they're amusing and often challenging, though I've found the shooting games to be extremely easy. On the other hand, some of the indirect aim games are really difficult (like flip the frog into the lily pads, or bounce the ball into the colored cups).

It's a good family game. Good for a diversion when you want to play some quick time-wasting games with friends and family. They don't have any depth; we're not talking about an epic 40+ hour plot, here. This is really just a collection of minigames.

Despite their lack of depth, I have to say, any games that can get your non-gamer spouse gaming with you is a good thing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly fun September 3, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had no intentions of buying this game, but after seeing so many glowing reviews I decided to give it a shot. I'm glad I did--Carnival Games is an incredibly fun collection of mini-games that are fun to play and remind you of a real carnival, though with much less potential damage to the wallet.

Carnival Games features over 20 carnival style games, most of which will probably be familiar to most people. There's an Alley Ball game (Skiball), dart throwing, a shooting gallery, frog launching, a dunk tank, and many, many others. There are also unlockable "super" versions of some of the games, variations which don't give prizes but instead record a high score. An example of this is the game where you knock over milk bottles--the super version has you knocking over enormous stacks of bottles. It's silly and an interesting twist on the original.

Each game you play rewards prizes in three sizes--small, medium, or large--and gives tickets which act as a sort of currency in the game and allow you to purchase unlockable items for your character (like a bike helmet or a guitar) and access other activities like the love machine and a fortune teller. In each game you can trade prizes up just like a real carnival--4 small prizes for a medium, 3 medium for a large, etc--in pursuit of a jumbo prize in each event. The prizes are nothing special at all, and they're really just a way of keeping track of how you've done in the events.

As I mentioned before, Carnival Games features a slew of unlockables for your character, which can be customized to your liking. Customization is pretty limited, however, at least until you unlock the silly accessories for him or her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleeper Hit!!! August 29, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Talk about a surprise! This game offers exactly what you'd expect... mindless single player fun. Try it during a break from "Metroid Prime Corruption." With multiple players, though, this may be THE ultimate drunken Wii party game! It's certainly much better than Wii Play or Mario Party 8. It's a shame this has slipped under so many gaming site's rader and likely won't get the attention it deserves. This game fits the Wii perfectly... fun for everyone of all ages.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just Okay
I thought this game would be a lot more fun but since I've been playing it, it just seems like an introduction on how to use the Wii remote. I'm going to return it.
