This game is absolutely horrible. I rented it as I played the first game on Xbox. The first batch of family game night games were very fun and played well on a console. The games within Family Game Night 3 are meant to be played on a board game and do not make the transition to console at all. The only game that plays well is the Yatzee game. All others take too long and are very boring. This game may be fun for kids under 10, but that is the full extent of its fun level.
If you have kids, this is a good game to get to keep them occupied when you're busy with something, but I think it's much better for the kids if you just buy the board games and play those with the family after dinner. The game play for some of the games is far from the actual board games, which I found to be very discomforting since I grew up playing these games as a kid. My all time favorite was clue, and the changes they made to the game to work on the consoles were not welcome.
