This review is from: Hasbro Family Game Night 3 - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
I have the first Family Game Night and I love it. Honeslty the games in the second Family Game didn't appeal to me, but Family Game Night 3 is right up my alley. It includes the Game of Life, Clue, Twister, Mouse Trap and Yahtzee. All of them are my absolute favorites, especially Clue! With two little kids, we don't really get the chance to break out a board game too much these days, but it is much easier to turn on our Wii, play, and save it.
Each game has a classic and a remixed version which gives extra ways to play so you don't get bored! I will warn you though the Game of Life takes awhile to finisih if you play it 4-player (we had two computer players.) Twister is nothing at all like you'd expect, it is a game where you have to watch beats on the screen and hit the corresponding buttons that it shows, easy but it gets challenging! Mouse Trap is a game I hadn't played since a kid and I don't really remember, in the Wii game you play a mini-game to set up the trap and then you spend the end of the game rolling to see who gets trapped - a little slow but fun. Yahtzee is another favorite of mine and although this game is a little different than the traditional dice game, it is fun and addicting!
Overall, I really like Family Game Night 3 and think it is a great way to play old board game favorites on the Wii. This would be a perfect way for families to update their own family game night or just to play at a party. So far I have played this with just with my tween sister, but I am definitely breaking this out at our next party!
