This game is ok. When asked a question, a key pad appears for you to type and words pop up to guess what you are going to put in which is nice. But some answers don't match. example: What would you do if you found out your house was haunted. I was going to say call someone, but only got out call, the answer that appeared was sell home and said correct. There are more examples of this, but I think you can get the point. Plus the voice for the host, who you never see, isn't from any of the shows.
When I turned on this game I was hesitant about expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. This game held very true to the game show and the game play was actually pretty good. If you're a fan of the show, this would be a great game to own. I'm going to hold on buying until I rent the next one in the series. I'm afraid I would have burned through the 1000 survey's quickly if I had bought this to own. I'm hoping the the next version is a bit longer. Not much bad to say here, but there were a couple of sticking points that irked me. Creating a character was not very well thought out. One character profile was O.K, but after that things went downhill. A better solution would have been to let you use your miis as your family, but I do understand from a design standpoint that they were going for a different look. The only other critique I could offer is relating to party mode. When I saw "party mode" listed, I was excited. Here I thought I would be able to invite my friends over and play them as a family. How wrong I was. This was my biggest disappointment for the whole game. If multiplayer mode was better thought out, I would not have any problems recommending this game to buy. As it is, If you live alone or don't have many friends around, this would be a great game to own. If you're looking for a game you can play with friends and family, hold off for the other parts in the series. Hopefully in later editions, they will have worked some things out. For the most part, all I can say are good things about this game. I'll be holding out on buying until I play some other the other family feud titles.
