Why Make A Boring Game Midway? Not Even Worth $5!!

I played it for a about 30min and played all games. Multiplayer is not much better. Carnival Games is not the best but at least it is worth a rental. You used to be one of my favorite publishers but this title has a terrible interface, lackluster animations, weird controls, just a few games, and not much depth. I rented Cruisn {should get it Monday} and hope it will be better (even though it looks like the same terrible game on the N64). I regret renting this; the $20 retail price should have let me know not to rent it. If Cruisn is a bad one then no more Midway for me {maybe a better Mortal Kombat will regain me as a customer}!

Average competitor, but still okay for parties.

Game Party has some decent games, such as shuffleboard, beer pong, darts, air hockey, hoop shot and skee ball. All of these games are fun to play in real life, but the Wii controls for these games are awkward and unreliable. Throwing the darts was not at all like throwing a real dart, and it was hard to gage the force needed for the shuffleboard puck. Other games such as Hoop shot and Skee ball do not allow multiplayer head-to-head action...not very good for a party game. Still, there were some decent party games that were easy to learn, but still required dexterity (which goes out the window fast after too many drinks) such as Air hockey and Beer Pong.
Overall, this game has a hard time competing with other party games like Wii Play and Mario Party because of the difficult controls and single player games, but is still worth playing during cocktail parties.

Tried each of the games, and my 4.5 year old son had such a hard time with the controls, that I put it right back into the mail box.
