5.0 out of 5 stars Cranium Kabooki Review For Wii December 3, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Cranium is basically the best board game ever created. I not only speak for myself but for everyone else I know that has played the board game. It's a mixture of Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit, Charades and more.

Last weekend we had a little party and decided to pick up the Wii version of Cranium. The game itself seems solid and was fun to play. The game still requires you to draw, unscramble words and more just like the board game. A cool feature is that the answer to the question is displayed onscreen but is all jumbled up. You need a special set of glasses that are included in the game to decipher what you need to draw. It's a really cool feature.

Drawing onscreen seems user friendly. Some drawings require you to simply draw in one color while some others allow you to use multiple colors. The closer you hold the Wiimote to the TV the thicker the lines will be. Another cool feature.

Only one Wiimote is needed with this game since only one team plays at a time.

We played 2 games so far and it seems like a solid little game. I just have 2 small complaints though.

1) The price. At $50 you can actually buy the Cranium board game which is probably easier to transport to a friends house than a Wii.

2) Loading. Sometimes the loading seems a little long between questions. It's not so much a big deal when playing a group game like this because everyone is talking most of the time. If this were a single player game you would notice to loading times but since it's a group game we really didn't find it too much to worry about

3.0 out of 5 stars Limited fun time!!! January 2, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game for my family since we are avid fans of the Cranium game series. Once we popped it in we were very pleased overall with the quality of gameplay. After playing it a few times I now see what can be considered major flaws in the gameplay itself. You are given a pair of "decoder goggles" so that they can display the answer to the person that needs to be drawing or acting. In truth it is not really hard to see the answer even without the goggles and it never surprises me that inevatably there is someone on one of the teams that tries to cheat. To tell you the truth its hard not to when you must look at the screen to see what the person is drawing and the answer is staring at you from below. This is a small flaw but it is annoying like I said because there is someone always willing to WIN WIN WIN rather than play honestly. The other big problem I am having is when you must act out some of the things on the screen with the wii remote. I think the remote has a hard time distingushing between some of the motions and instead you end up frustrated trying to "hammer" in a nail and it still won't recognize it. Some of the game transitions are slow but they are well worth the wait and I figure it gives you tie to get up off the couch and get ready. Someone reviewed this game upset that you couldn't chose the seperate challenges but you can't do that but rarely in the board game anyway, so I wouldn't expect that to be a surprise to many people.

Overall this is a good game. Not a great game but at least one that should keep your family entertained a couple of nights a month.

2.0 out of 5 stars Limited replay value January 11, 2008
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Rent this game before purchasing it.

I believe this game detracts from the Cranium brand's value. Several of the "minigames" are sub par, and the interface is distracting at times.

The goggles could be a neat gimmick, but the implementation of the hidden word makes it somewhat easy for players to cheat.

Also, the minigame that instructs you to act out certain actions with your back turned to the TV is nearly impossible. The Wiimote does not communicate with the sensor bar properly with an adult human directly in its way.. I know it's a bluetooth interface, but it still doesn't work.

2 stars for a few hours of fun, but definitely not worth more than 20 bucks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Wii game so far February 26, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My friends, family, and I love this game. We play with just adults, mix it up with the kids, and the kids play on their own. Everybody gets a kick out of it, and so far, we haven't had repetition with the questions. The one complaint I have is that we seldom land on some of our favorite categories (like Song Pong and the geography one). But in a way, that's good, because it keeps us cheering and livens up the spins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wii Love it! January 7, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well we are big Cranium players from when it came out as a board game. I was unsure how it would translate to a video game console. It works!

Very fun to play with at least 4 people, this game makes a party all by itself. There are several new games on the the console version from the board game. Each is easy to play and do on the Wii.

My only detraction is a couple of games are not as responsive to input as the others, making it difficult to judge if the player is actually controlling it correctly and not if they have the answer right. Once over that hurdle the game is really a blast!

2.0 out of 5 stars So much potential, but so poorly done December 14, 2007
By Cap8
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
A Cranium game for Wii has so much potential, but this is probably one of the most disappointing game/entertainment purchases I have ever made.

One of the most frustrating aspects of this game is the lack of ability to choose which mini game you would like to play and play them again if you would like. To play the game, you are forced to spin a wheel that randomly selects a mini game, and that's the mini game that you must play. There is no opportunity to go back and *just* play an art or trivia game for a little while, for example. Imagine what it would be like to Play Wii Sports without the ability to control which sport you play when and being forced to play all of them, even if you don't like the boxing or golfing mini games - that's a little bit what it feels like.

In addition to not having the flexibility to choose and replay mini games, the loading time between each game is borderline unbearable. I haven't timed it, but I would guess almost a minute between each game which feels VERY long, and I usually don't get impatient about that kind of thing.

Also - here are some mini games that involve reading text on the screen with a pair of special glasses that are provided. While the glasses are kind of fun (provided that you don't lose them), the font that the game uses is illegible and ambiguous! I could not read the text on the screen roughly 50% of the time, which definitely ruins the experience.

Lastly - the whole game uses about two audio tracks. The music and sound is so annoying, I had to put my TV on mute.
