I had high hopes for this game. Particularly after I started it up and watched all the videos that play while they wait for you to pick something from the menu. It was very amusing. But then I got into the actual game play. Once I figured out what the heck I was doing it was pretty easy. And it was fun...for the first round...then the mini games continued...and didn't change. They were all essentially the same game in different settings. The first one you're on the beach...then oh my! you're on a boat. But it's all just the same excercise over and over again. It had potential to be another Mario Party. Instead it's more like Mary Kate and Ashley Sweet Sixteen License to Drive. Lame. If nothing else, you can always check it out just to watch the videos. They are quite entertaining. Other than that, there's not much of a point.
Ok. Here is a game pitch. How about a game where you run around and collect clams, punch each other to steal them from other players, and the one who has the most wins? Sounds stupid? Lets just slap an election theme for no apparent reason. Then, lets make it so you can't pick what animal you want to be in the election, but instead, you play all of them, in different rounds. This game is just plain awful. I tried to play it several times, and just ended up putting it right back in the envelope. NEXT
