I waited for this one for a long time.. and now I have it :) my wife love to play Skeet ball or alley ball thats whats its call in the game.

I have to say its a fun game. there some things that could make the game better. but all in all the game is a fun and fun to play with others.

I got the game today and play it about 2 hours before work with my wife. we had fun and made me want to call in sick... but all most everyday I want to call in sick. hehehe

the things they could make it better was the guy you make are like a cookie cutter.. you don't have much to pick out of and you don't have a lot to say about what he look like as a person.

and some of the games they should of make more that one person play at a time. than wait for your turn..

but what I like about it that duck shoot is so much fun with other people.. your fight over the duck seeing who going to get the ducks that are coming out..

the game that you shoot out a red star with a fully automatic BB-gun. you have 300 shots and you have to make them count :)

the test of strenght. the first time i said that was easy.. I don't see the big deal but you have to do it 3 times. and the 3rd time your dieing... OMG your yelling at the screen "Meter get the heck up there" hehehehe

and there many more game I haven't play them all but in time I know I will :)

I have to give this game 8 out of 10

If your a party gamer and play games with people you have to try this one out. its so much fun.

but your a hard core gamer or play game mostly by your self. stay away from this game..

all in all I'm happy I pay for this game. get a lot of people and rent this one :)

My family really likes this game. I bought it instead of renting it, and I am glad I did. The games are challenging, and my kids like that you can dress up your character with earning stuff from the game or buying it with tickets. It would have been cool if you could use your mii on the game.

Its a great game for the whole family. Some games are very hard, the test your strength game, my arm is still hurting from doing it. And its great it keeps the highest score with your name, just to keep everyone trying to get the high score. Its a great game to own or rent.

The 4 Hour Review

I have about 4 hours in on this game and here's what I think.

This is a relatively fun game for adults. Kids will like it more because the interface and graphics are suited more for a child. The controls for most games are fun and accurate. There is a wide selection of games, but I found them to be poorly executed. In most cases it seems that half the game isn't there, because of their poor realism.

For example, the balloon dart game is played the same at any carnival I have ever been to, you throw the dart, pop the balloon and the guy reads the tag to determine your prize. In this version, you throw darts at different size balloons, and the smaller the balloon the larger the prize. Not to mention there are only about a dozen balloons to shoot at.

I was hoping that this game would feel a little like a night at the carnival, but instead, I'm sending it back after 4 hours of play. I do however, believe this game is worth a try, especially if you have children. If you're looking for a great single player experience, move along to another game.
