Not as bad as other reviews lead you to think
on November 3, 2012
I got the 2012 version and played it first before going back and getting the 2010 and Decades ones. I have always thought that 2012 FF was very well done and entertaining. I LOVE the host, Sparky Whitmore. That is one think lacking in the 2010 and Decades. The host is off screen and has ZERO personality. Part of the fun of FF is the funny interaction between host and guests.
I find the characterizations of Sparky, and the players entertaining. PLUS, you can now use your Mii characters as contestants. YAY!! The voice of the host is alot more what you would expect than from the 2010 or Decades games. Very "game show host" sounding, if you know what I mean. And he has some very funny lines. Sure, they get recycled, but I don't mind. I now walk around my house repeating "Whaaat can you tell me?"
Now that I have played 2010 and Decades, I can see why some are frustrated by how comparatively slow this version seems to be. But, to be honest, I find the pace of the 2010 and Decades a bit too fast and rushed. The slower pace can get a little frustrating at times, but not overly so.
The questions and answers are pretty much what you would expect. Some seem kind of silly or don't make sense, and there is the occasional glitch, but overall, I am very entertained by Sparky, and the contestants, and the graphics. After having played the 2010 and Decades, I find myself preferring 2012 due to the reasons mentioned above.
