Weak

I thought this game was fun but there no real "story mode". In the first game there was the events groups, second game had a contest mode this game has no real challenge and every time you play the party mode its the same.

I have played (and not AT ALL enjoyed) the original game, but the second one was a HUGE step in the positive direction. This game was a bit of the original added with all the great parts of the second.

This was a lot like Mario Party (I mostly played the London Party Mode) and it was pretty darn good. The only real issue is that the CPU players will accept ANYTHING, even something you DON'T want to do.

That reminds me that some of the events are hard! Some require you to tilt the Wii Remote in a certain direction while others have you shake it repeatedly. HARD AND PAINFUL! Most of the events (especially Dream Events) are easy and fun (as long as you remember to put the CPU difficult on easy).

This game also brings back memories through the old game-play music. The downside is that unlike the Winter Olympic Games, you are stuck with a certain sing for each event. Some are good, but a lot of them suck.

Fun rating: Pretty good
Difficulty rating: A bit hard, but sometimes easy enough
Music rating: Good
Control rating: Painful for my hands/arms

Overall rating: Amazing!

when i first got this game i thought it would be as fun as the first two Olympic games,but i quickly found out it was very confusing and the controls were very stupid for the type of games that were included.
