Cut, cut, cut, cut, CUT! Family Fest Presents: Movie Games is supposed to be a family friendly knock off and satire of the movies. But it doesn't even rise to that level. With the many, many mini game compilations out there, Movie Games has to have something that separates itself from the others, and it doesn't. First off, the games are bland. The best are where I get to shoot pirates and pictures. But this compilation includes games that have you shaking the Wii very hard and fast (Tennis Elbow, anyone?), a Match Three that could not be any more basic and a dancing game with music that's terrible. I didn't like any of those. To make matters worse, the graphics are terrible. The actors you use just are bad to look at, and the scenery is one eyesore after another. The thing that really gets me down on Movie Games is that "family friendly" games just mean "lacking content". This game has 20 games each lasting about two minutes each for a total playing time of about 40 minutes. I got bored with Movie Games in less that two hours. Why can't they put in more mini games? Stuff the disc with as much content as you can with a good variety of mini games. Your family deserves better than "Family Fest Presents: Movie Games" SKIP IT.
This was a major crapfest. It's awful. There are only 19 games, and they're all about 5 minutes long. You can beat the game in a matter of a couple of hours. It's so easy a 4 year old could figure it out- and I think anybody older would be bored to tears within minutes. I'm glad I got this on a trade in...because it's going to be traded back in and I won't miss it.
Movie Games would be fun- except for the annoying dancing parts and the shortness. First of all, who wants to shake the Wii remote monotonously for twenty minutes to make your virtual person "dance"? Also, the game can be beaten in an hour, maybe two. There are a few fun shooting events, but that's only a fifth of the game. I recommend one of the Raving Rabbids games if you like minigames, and take a pass on this.
