It seems like every week a new batch of Wii games get released that promise a lot of fun and flash. They lure the money out of your pocket only to turn out to be worthless junk once you get them home and try them out. This seems to be especially true when it comes to the mini game genre. The truly great ones, such as the Mario Party series, are worth double their cost but are as rare as hen's teeth. I was reluctant to throw money at another piece of junk game, but since this was created by Hudson Soft, the company that works on so many of the actual Mario Party games, I decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise!

First of all, the game is priced at a nice level even though it's a brand new release. The game is structured around a story that's more than a little far-fetched. A meteor is headed for earth and you are the only one who can stop it. You can purchase items that will slow down the meteor to buy you time, or buy items that will damage the meteor as you attempt to destroy it, or eventually buy a watch that will make you a superhero with the ability to save the earth. Of course, these items cost money and you earn the money by taking on the "jobs" that are the actual mini games. You begin with a selection of 3 jobs and you can perform 1 per day. As you earn money you unlock additional jobs that pay more. That, in essence, is the somewhat silly story that the games are built around.

The story itself is somewhat of an annoyance because each day something happens that either earns you bonus money or hampers your efforts. This is the main reason I gave it a less than perfect rating. But the heart of any mini game compilation is in the games themselves and the "occupation" themed games in Help Wanted are simply a blast to play.

The story line is a little goofy but the game is still fun. The jobs are not your normal employment oppotunities (scrubbing dirt off a flying whale) and the variety makes it interesting. Overall, a great game!

Was looking for a game that my 7 year old and 4 year old could play. Aside from the story, they picked up on how to play the mini games pretty easily. I often find myself playing it after the kids are off to bed. The only drawback is the amount of times the game loads from the disc but except for that this is a fun game for kids and adults.

Help Wanted is an amazingly fun game. In the game you have to work at all kinds of jobs that help you earn money to save the world. In the game the world is being attacked by many crazy things such as asteroids, aliens, etc. And you have to destroy these things before they come into contact with the earth by buying products such as rockets, lasers, etc. These products are very expensive so that's where the 50 wacky jobs come. Once you earn enough money you buy the product and try to destroy the thing heading toward earth. Now I know what you're thinking...I destroy the thing and save the world and that's the end of the game...well as soon as you destroy one thing, another comes a few days later lol So this game last a long time which means more hours of fun.

I recommend this game to anyone no matter what age. I am an adult who bought it for my little brothers and found myself playing it more than they do. It is truly a fun family game. I hope you decide to buy this and have fun with your family!

The case of the game makes it sounds as if this game is going to be all about playing through fifty fun jobs. Sure, the fifty fun jobs are here, but I was far too disappointed with the story part of it. A meteor is falling to Earth and you must earn money to delay it and eventually destroy it. For a while in the game, I was fine. But instead of destroying it, I want to try to unlock all the jobs first. Unfortunately, my hard work has to go into preventing the meteor and it's a rare occasion when I have enough money to but a new job. As for when you play the jobs, most of them can be fun once you get used to them. However, this is taken away by actually getting the jobs. In the end, this game is probably not worth getting.

So far this game is fun, but the story about the meteor is well.. stupid and chessy. I found I had to play the same jobs over and over again to really gain any status or enough money to purchase more uniforms and points. Some are more difficult than others but overall it is still fun. I believe after more practice and experience I will be able to do better. I was able to get through one level in about two hours of play, which was not so bad. It is a little addictive, so pace yourself.

I think that this game is a lot of fun! Especially when you're bored or if its a rainy day out and at $10, this was a steal. This game kept me busy for hours when I first bought it and it still does! Some of the jobs are a little challenging imo(the manicurist, the tailor) but that's what makes the game fun! My favorite jobs are the Courier, the Fisherman, the Interpreter, and the Deep Sea Diver.

Gave this game to my friends, who owns a wii. They LOVE it. I loved the game actually but this is not a game for people that can't work their hands all that great because this game requires you to use the both the nunchuck & the remote, and since I have a bad left hand I can only use the wii remote, so I still give the game 5 stars because its good I just can't play it :(
