OK the same old routine of unlocking games is not fun. I wish publishers would realize that. The constant repetitive commentary from the geeky characters in the game ruins the game after a few minutes. It was a good idea but then they screwed it up.

I primarily rented this game for the Skee Ball feature, but that excitement ended within the first few minutes. Even with changing the position of our sensor bar, "throwing" the ball was difficult. I ended up "throwing" three balls before getting irritated and moving on to the next game. (And believe me, I felt the consequences of my actions for the next few days..."Throwing" the ball took such force that it was almost impossible!)
The rest of the games were expected. There is a knock off of Space Invaders and even a "Whack-a-Mole" knock off. These type of games would probably keep a younger (13 & under) busy for a while.
Commentary was horrible! I eventually muted the tv after a few minutes of annoying comments from (what sounded like) the Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons.
I'm glad I rented this game from Gamefly instead of paying big $$ from our local store. I wouldn't rent it again, and I probably wouldn't recommend it to anybody except those desperate for a few minutes without the kids.
