Eclectic Gamer (Wii)

More Game Party on the Wii is an oddity in that itís a party game not from Nintendo. And to be brutally honest, it shows.

In My Experience

OK, Iíll admit it. I had already heard dodgy things about this game, but I tried to keep an open mind when playing along with a couple of people the other night. And do you know what? Itís not all bad, given the price too. Mini games are on the menu, and so we choose some Mii-style characters (not the real thing sadly) to use in the game, including beanbag tossing, shuffle ball, darts and quarterback challenge, where you hit the main targets to score points.

I loved the fun of getting balls into cups (ping cup), lawn darts and quarterback challenge. Why? These games had responsive controls and ensured competition. With mostly basic underarm or lobbing gestures, the games reminded me of things played at school and the fair, which is not always a good thing!

Last Word

Lots of mini games, but all with only two main control gestures. Worse still, some of the games had awful responses to movements which meant that the results were poor and the games were completely infuriating to play. What saves it from a total washout is the price-point and the fact that three or four games are actually fun with friends.

Had fun despite sloppy controls.

Quote

Wii Sports Resort minus the control over destiny and the true fun factor. Still worth getting for a few nights of fun if you get it for a good price.

"I remember watching and waiting for Teletext pages to tell me the latest and greatest video game news in the 80s and 90s. What better way then, to review the best of those old games with some choice new titles here and there."

Here are the games I've been playing recently:

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
