We loved Family Game Night 3... they added an interactivity and pleasant twists to long loved originals. Family Game Night 4 didn't really have much of the original game left. I don't think they should use the old favorites names, it's a bit of a fake out.
if you want to just relax and play a game without thinking to much this is the game for you, in this game they put a spin on some classic board games, its fun and easy but the part that sucks is that you can only play the max 2 people so its not much of a family game night.
So, at first we were thrilled to play some new hasbro games since we had rented one of the previous Family Game Nights. But, after having to listen to the game host say the same jokes over and over and over again it became much more annoying than fun. Not to mention the sound and video quality were extremely poor. I don't think this is a game we'll be keeping for a while to play over and over again.
The game overall is decent, but some of the games (Connect 4 basketball, and Yahtzee Bowling) are not as good as the original games. If they had just had a full version of Yahtzee that would have been better in my opinion. Also, the Sorry Sliders game seemed a lot like shuffleboard, not sure what it had to do with Sorry.
Well, Gamefly shipped it quickly but that's probably because there's an abundant number of copies of this title...and for good reason.
Though the graphics are what you expect of a family game with toddlers it's not something you would catch your teenage son/daughter playing unless they came home stoned. Even then you might have to coax a game out of them with a bribe of Visine and chocolate cookie doe ice cream.
While I appreciate the idea behind it. If its not broke dont fix it. Adding the PS3 MOVE to the game without actually making that APPARENT to a renter is just fail. I have the move but at the time I rented it for my kids and wife, I had no idea. The game itself lacks ALOT of the basics. Had they not mutilated the classics with twists, this might have been a good rental. It falls flat as the envelope its shipped in. Sent it back the same day it arrived.
When i recieved this game i thought this is going to be sent back as soon as i get home, but me and my Son played it and it was shockinly Fun, So Fun we kept it the entire weekend. it's well put together, and we have fun all weekend. if you just need a weekend fun game get it.
