Wii Party is a party game developed by Nintendo for the Wii gaming console. The game is an evolution in the party game genre, in which along with standard Wii party game action beloved by gamers, players use the Wii Remote in new ways that encourage player interaction in the physical gameplay space, affecting in-game action. The game features more than 70 party games, broken into multiple game categories, 1-4 player game support and new and fun ways to integrate Miis into your gameplay.
An Electronic Game Board for the Whole Family
Most video games require players to focus their attention on a screen, but now Nintendo brings the action into the living room with Wii Party, a game that changes the way people interact with other players.
Wii Party is a family-friendly party game featuring 13 different party game modes and 70+ mini-games. Individual games are diverse in design, incorporate importable or system generated Miis, and fall into several different categories. These include: Party Games supporting 1-4 players that in some cases utilize an in-game game board, navigated with the use of Miis and dice rolls; Pair Games, supporting up to two players in co-op play; and House Party Games, which support 2-4 live players and utilize the Wii Remote to create differing dynamics between players.
Key Game Features
- Some of the 13 different party game modes take the fun out of the TV and into the living room. Players have to interact with one another in the real world to get the results they want in the game. Examples of House Party gameplay include:
- A take off on "Spoons", in which players place their Wii Remotes on a table. Each one emits a different animal noise. Players win the round by being the first to grab the controller that is making the sound of the animal shown on the TV.
- Players use Wii Remote controllers to play Hide and Go Seek, where one player asks the other players to leave the room and then hides all of the controllers around the living room. When the other players return, they have to find them.
- Wii Party features multiplayer variety. Some of the party game modes are cooperative, such as "Balance Boat." Others are competitive, such as "Board Game Island."
- In Board Game Island mode, players help their Mii characters compete in more than 70 different mini-games:
- Mii characters ride a rollercoaster while players try to shoot down floating balloons containing gifts.
- Players use their Wii Remote controllers to help Mii characters navigate a virtual game of tag.
- For multiplayer modes, additional Wii Remote controllers are required and are sold separately.

My reaction to Wii games seems to be instantaneous -- I either love or hate them within the first few minutes of play. And believe me, it doesn't feel good to spend 50 dollars on a game only to realize you've just thrown your money away. And after buying one dud game after another, Wii Party had a lot riding against it in my mind. But I really wanted something else to play other than my fave, Wii Sports Resort. So I decided to give it one more try, bit the bullet, and bought Wii Party -- and boy, am I glad I did!
The trailer for this game really doesn't do it justice. I was thinking this game might be kinda lame, but it really has to be experienced to be appreciated. Like Sports Resort, I'm very impressed with the programming, thought and imagination that went into this. Wii has taken the potentially boring concept of party games and created something quite wonderful, not to mention fun. Unlike New Carnival Games, which was one inane game fragment after another, Wii Party has come up with an inventive way to thread everything together and create an enjoyable gaming experience.
The Host is NOT speaking Japanese!
Wii Party has a cute character that hosts the entire game. I've seen some text and video reviews complaining that he speaks Japanese -- well, I'm not fluent, but I do speak some Japanese, and the host of Wii Party is NOT speaking Japanese. He's not speaking anything, it's just a made up language so the same game can be manufactured for distribution throughout the world.Read more ›
Let me say that I'm 30 years old and tend not to buy as many games as I used to, but I get that itch once in awhile to purchase a game, or should I say a Nintendo game for that matter? And tend to keep an eye out for what's coming out. After being fairly entertained with Wii sports and having played Mario Party in the past, Wii Party piqued my interest. I was going to wait a month or so to see how well the game would be received except that I received an email on launch day stating that Walmart was giving away a Free Wii-mote with the purchase of Wii Party (I found that to be false). So I cruised over to the local Walmart only to impulse buy Wii Party promotion-less.
Wii Party sat unopened for a full day due to the fact that I read some underwhelming reviews by some reputable gaming websites and early Amazon reviewers claiming the game was a conservatively made title by nintendo that wasn't very entertaining. I was afraid if I cracked the seal, I would've wasted more money on games that get light use.
After peer pressure by my friend to play the game, I opened that package and since then we've been Wii Party evangelists. We have played it with 5 different friends and a family of mixed ages, resulting in a blast every time and multiple copies purchased in just a couple days.
I haven't played by myself yet and don't really plan to, however, the two-player games are entertaining, mini-games are well made, and the more players-the merrier.Read more ›
For those who have played Mario Party 8, Wii Party may not seem as fun because the gist of Wii Party is basically the same grounds for Mario Party without the Nintendo characters. Sure, there are some new games to play but I couldn't move beyond the realization that Wii Party is a bit of a copy or slight upgrade to the Mario Party series - without Mario, Luigi, Peach and the gang. I also didn't understand the board-game part of Wii Party that has you playing a mini-game in between each move on the board to determine who gets to roll first. Some of the single player mode games really aren't engaging and drag on. The more players you have playing with you the better in terms of Wii Party. What's good about Wii Party as opposed to Mario Party is that there are many more "brain" games included that cause for you to have to not only interact and engage through the Wii remote but games that also require you to think quickly on your feet.
In all, a decent game. This is called Wii "Party" so play it with a group of people. The more people and Wii remotes involved, the busier, funner and more engaged you'll be. For those who've played Mario Party and are wondering if it's worth investing in this game - not really. While there are a few new games, a lot of Wii Party feels like Mario Party 8 verbatim.

These games are more geared toward older children and adults. However, I've played along side my 6 year old, and even though he usually does not win, we still have a lot of fun. Read morePublished 20 hours ago by Elizabeth
