4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent choice for kids & family, October 12, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Wii Party (Video Game)
My family picked this up yesterday even though I wasn't thrilled about paying full price for a new game. We have boys 3 & 6. We played this game through the evening yesterday and they bolted out of bed and dressed in seconds with the promise of a few more minutes before the bus/carpool arrived.
The best part of this game is the variety of different types of gameplay. Unlike Wii Sport, or Wii Sports Resort, there are what seems like a hundred options. This may seem overwhelming, but the setup makes it easy. I love that the menus actually give you an estimated time that each game will take so that you don't start something only to have to stop for bedtime or risk everyone being exhausted tomorrow. The game times range from 5 min to an hour.
In a nutshell, this is a great game for kids to play with or without adults, for a family to play with or without kids. It is unlikely, however, that our group of adult friends who love to get together for game night will spend much time playing this game. We're not drunks, but we like to have a couple of drinks and play board games, rock band, just dance, etc... We'll try this, but it will probably end up being what we use to entertain the kids while we head back to the table for Partini. But, I could definitely see us playing with Grandma & Grandpa for hours.
P. S.: One reviewer commented that the game host only speaks Japanese. This is not true. He does not speak English or Japanese, but what I would call 'Mumbling Jibberish'. You have to read his comments like any Wii game I have played including any from the Mario Bros. franchise. The speaking sound he makes is only for effect.
