Definitely not geared for adults!
on October 31, 2010
After reading reviews on this game such as people saying that this was a great Disney game that definitely went under the radar, I figured it was a great find and about $10 cheaper than all other good Wii games! Don't get me wrong, it was a decent game but definitely not what I expected. I thought it would be a party game given the title, but I honestly don't think it would be very fun with a group of friends. It's not really that complex, but it's definitely not something you can jump right into and start playing. It has a party mode, but even that isn't a quick mini game.
Basically you choose a character and then go to various rooms collecting clues. When you've collected all the clues (usually around 20) then you accuse a suspect. I should also add that there are only 8 levels and then you've beat the game. It took us about a half hour to beat each level. When you go to get a clue, you have to beat a mini game before you earn the clue. Some of the mini games were a bit challenging, but they all were definitely fairly easily beaten.
Overall, I'd say this game is definitely geared more towards kids around 12 maybe. I thought it would be a good party game for any age, but it's not in my opinion. There are manyyy mini games, but you have to play a pretty involved game in order to get to the mini games. It was fun, but I honestly can't see us playing it many more times. It really was a lot like Clue for Wii. Fun, but I wouldn't call it a party game, even though it has a party mode.
