My son loves skeeball and bowling, unfortunately both of these games need to be unlocked by playing more of the mundane games the collect tickets (in game currency) to purchase said games. Needless to say, my son doesn't want to play and now his 31 year old father has been playing home run derby non-stop in an attempt to unlock the games he wants to play... Now, I don't really mind this to much as I am a gamer and well, home run derby is pretty sweet, however 2k should have really had an option allowing parents to just simply unlock games so your kid can just play what they want to play without the hassle of going through hours of H.R.D.
Regardless, I can see this game being a 4 star game ONCE the games are unlocked, its a shame that so far no games make use of the built in technology like Wii Bowling... this is more just press the x button and move the joystick... simple enough for kids, but hey, rolling your wrist forwards or backwards isn't exactly "complex"....
Parents, be prepared for some home run derby to unlock the games your children actually want to play. Dads, man your 6pack, there will be some long innings.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Ryan. We’ve updated the game to reduce the number of tickets required to unlock all mini-games. It now takes only a few playthroughs of a mini-game before unlocking another one. We really want everyone to be able to experience the full fun of Carnival Games’ 20 mini-games and quickly find their favorite ones, and we think this update helps make this possible for more players.
