5.0 out of 5 stars One of my Favorite Games For the Wii! Like Cotton Candy, It's Quite Addictive!!, September 5, 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Carnival Games - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
I started reading the game descriptions on this product months before it was released. I am a big fan of mini-games and this looked like it might be worthwhile. I suspected it might be a GOOD game, but I didn't expect it to be GREAT! Then I saw all the 5-star reviews and went ahead and bought a copy. Absolutely not disappointed! This is one of the best games for the Wii I've played to date!

This is an exceptionally well-polished game. The graphics aren't fancy, but they are clean, crisp and well rendered. A real Carnival feel to the product with bright colors, lot's of kitsch, and some mildly sinister but funny carnival hucksters. The mini-games are addictive and lots of fun. Some of the games are simple, while others are more challenging. It's easy to earn "tickets" whether you are an expert player or novice. You can then trade your tickets to play other carnival games or unlock a variety of masks and other accessories for your player to use in the game.

I won't go into descriptions of individual games, since other reviewers have done an excellent job. However, just like a real carnival, my favorite game is darts. I've also become fond of capturing the dinosaur with "The Claw". This game is simple enough for small kids to master, but challenging enough for teens and adults. An excellent game for the Wii platform, the controls are responsive and there are few if any bugs. It will make you crave fried twinkies and cotton candy. Highly recommended!!

I love this game but have not been impressed with the dart game. It just seems too easy. What do you like about it?

Sentimental. Reminds me of the annual carnival that always came to our town.

The dart game is too hard for me! It flies on the walls instead of where I put the target! My friend hit a teddy bear hanging on the side wall on this game once. :O
