Start the Party! game logo
Gameplay
A new benchmark in augmented/virtual reality, Start the Party!'s utilization of the combined features of the powerful and precise PlayStation Move motion controller and the PlayStation Eye peripheral* allows the player and the virtual world props featured in the game to interact so convincingly, that players believe they are holding real props in their own bare hands.

Hair cutting mini-game from Start the Party!
Get in the game like never before with the Move motion controller and PlayStation Eye.
View larger.
The PlayStation Eye acts as a camera/motion capturing device, in this case using the light given off by the handheld Move motion controller to precisely replicate players' motions and intent in the game's more than 20 mini-games. Translated light data is in turn relayed through the PlayStation Eye's camera capabilities, which projects the captured image and actions of the player on the screen in context with game elements and characters. In addition, a representation of the virtual tool featured in each mini-game overlays the actual image of the player's in-hand Move motion controller. This in effect places the player literally in the game. Mini-games are PlayStation Network compatible and support up to four players, competitive, cooperative and customizable team modes and the ability to use the PlayStation Eye to save player specific icons and record their spoken names.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the journalists! September 29, 2010
By JCat
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've very troubled by many gaming journalists and top reviewers for some of the major on-line gaming magazines. Apparently, Start the Party was not much of a game for them, It's as if they reviewed this with 16 year old Call of Duty fans in mind. Come on folks, lighten up and have some fun.

While Sports Champions is without a doubt the strongest launch title for the PS3 Move, there's no denying that Start the Party has plenty of charm and some kick-ass augmented reality effects. Matter of fact, it's the best "show off" game of the bunch. Yes, there are only so many mini games you will take part of before they get repeated, but there are difficulty settings and various modes to break things up. This is not the kind of game you lock yourself in a room with and play through out the night. You invite some friends/family in front of the large screen TV and laugh your butt off! I'm sorry, but watching yourself on live feed holding various in-game items is absolutely eye popping hilarious. The mini games are actually quite fun, and technically make any WarioWare micro game look fossilized. Both young and old will have a blast; the very young will be hypnotized by the visuals, and teens will probably have fun but won't dare admit it (the sorry state of adolescent males).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game to play with your kids October 3, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a fun game to play with our kids (age 4 & 7). They all enjoyed the game and we certainly enjoyed playing it with them. This is the best PS3 game that I've found that allows us to play a game as a family. The games are varied, but easy to pick up. It would be nice to have more games, but as of right now it is not too repetitive. I'm also not sure how much we'd be playing this game if it was only adults playing. But all in all, a very entertaining family game and I highly recommend it if you're looking for a light-hearted, not too intense game to play with your children.

5.0 out of 5 stars We can't stop playing the demo when people come over! September 26, 2010
By Jake
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
i don't own the full game but i have the demo and this is the favorite move game for everyone! im buying it since we keep playing the demo over and over which only has 3 different types of party games to it. Also after playing this game my friends canceled their xbox 360 kinect motion controller bundles pre-order! kinect seems interesting but you cant fake the precision a controller gives you while playing video games, especially one like the Move!

4.0 out of 5 stars Kid's Stuff February 26, 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My husband and I bought this game thinking it had something for everyone and would involve a lot of activity (like the hula hoop and flying bird games for the Wii)seeing as we bought it for the PS Move. First of all it is really a kids' game! Also, there is very little action involved. We sat on the floor for most of the games. It would be a fun game for kids though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun with many people January 3, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got myself PS3 Move edition and was left feeling that the Move games were not all that exciting after all. Sports Champs are ok, but noone in my family was drawn in. We do play on PS3 a lot (between myself, my wife, and our 7 y.o. son), but it's been non-Move games. I read the reviews here and was a little bit put off by the number of negative or lukewarm reviews. One day, though, we had friends over and all our kids were running around and screaming a little bit much, so I wanted something that would keep them all occupied and in place - ordered this game. All I can say is that it worked out perfectly over the holidays!

The game is kinda fun if you play on your own, but you probably wouldn't play it for more than 10 mins. With a group of people, though, it's a completely different experience. Trying to outcompete your friends adds a lot more purpose and excitement to the game. The best thing is that it appeals almost equally to all ages and sexes - both boys and girls were playing, ages 6 through 13 - I can imagine few activities where these kids would all be involved together. (The adults looked on with great interest too, but the kids were having too much fun and we let them play). And you can actually set the difficulty level for each player separately, so you can even out the chances of winning pretty well. The game also has a nice mix of games and modes of play, so that you can play for a couple of hours and you don't get bogged down. It's very fast-paced and exciting.

Actually, after all of the holiday parties we decided to play as a family. We played 3 games (something like 20 rounds) over an hour-plus and had a blast. With the difficulty levels appropriately set, each game was very competitive and each one of us ended up winning one game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun times September 30, 2010
By Sarah
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
We purchased this item because our 3-1/2 year old really wanted to take park in the PS3 Move experience. She was absolutely fascinated with the games and had a blast. The games are the perfect amount of time for smaller children, or for parties. I am definitely glad we made this purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Actually really fun. September 21, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I went and picked this up today and I was hesitant at first due to the bad reviews it got, but I took a chance. Well lets say I can see why they call it Start the PARTY, it's definetley a party game. I only played by myself, but I thought it was fun. I understand it's geared towards kids and I'm 26 but I like it. I love how they put a tool actually in your hand, they overlap the actual move controller with a paintbrush or flashlight or fan etc. This game is cool because you see yourself on screen with the various tools you get to use. I honestly think this game could be a huge hit with my buddies and I while drinking some beers, it's competitive and goofy and will surely put smiles on your faces. I'll update after I have people over but so far I'm loving this title, I can really see kids having a blast with this more than me obviously.
