What really makes this game shine is how well designed all the carnival games are. They work very well with the wii-mote, and rarely miss a beat.
Here are some of the highlights of the 25+ games included on this disc:
ALLEY BALL: This game is identical to a favorite game of many called "Skee-Ball". It is definitely one of the best games on here. It feels extremely realistic, the way you use the wii-mote to kind of throw the ball (not swing back & roll like bowling, but rather kind of flinging it up on the 'alley' like you really do in skee-ball). It's sharp and accurate, and hard to stop playing!
SPILLED MILK: This one has you throwing a ball at a stack of 3 milk bottles. It somewhat lacks the realism of Alley Ball, but it still is quite fun. It has you hold your wii-mote as if it's a ball, and you do an overhand throw to try to knock down the bottles. Fortunately it has a little marking on the screen to show where you will hit before you throw.
BALLOON DARTS: One of my favorites. This game has a corkboard covered with balloons that you must throw darts at to pop. You hold your wii-mote as if it's a dart (really!Read more ›
The games are all the kind you'd expect to find being run by Carnies at a State Fair's midway...the kind you know are rigged, but you play anyway hoping to score that over-sized stuffed bear for your sweetheart. So, they're amusing and often challenging, though I've found the shooting games to be extremely easy. On the other hand, some of the indirect aim games are really difficult (like flip the frog into the lily pads, or bounce the ball into the colored cups).
It's a good family game. Good for a diversion when you want to play some quick time-wasting games with friends and family. They don't have any depth; we're not talking about an epic 40+ hour plot, here. This is really just a collection of minigames.
Despite their lack of depth, I have to say, any games that can get your non-gamer spouse gaming with you is a good thing!
Carnival Games features over 20 carnival style games, most of which will probably be familiar to most people. There's an Alley Ball game (Skiball), dart throwing, a shooting gallery, frog launching, a dunk tank, and many, many others. There are also unlockable "super" versions of some of the games, variations which don't give prizes but instead record a high score. An example of this is the game where you knock over milk bottles--the super version has you knocking over enormous stacks of bottles. It's silly and an interesting twist on the original.
Each game you play rewards prizes in three sizes--small, medium, or large--and gives tickets which act as a sort of currency in the game and allow you to purchase unlockable items for your character (like a bike helmet or a guitar) and access other activities like the love machine and a fortune teller. In each game you can trade prizes up just like a real carnival--4 small prizes for a medium, 3 medium for a large, etc--in pursuit of a jumbo prize in each event. The prizes are nothing special at all, and they're really just a way of keeping track of how you've done in the events.
As I mentioned before, Carnival Games features a slew of unlockables for your character, which can be customized to your liking. Customization is pretty limited, however, at least until you unlock the silly accessories for him or her.Read more ›
