Well, I was actually expecting Hasbro Game Night 3. I was looking forward to playing Clue and Life. I was a little disappointed, but willing to try this one out. I was disappointed to learn that it was only 2 players. There are 4 people in my household, and we strive to find games that we can all enjoy together. While my roommate and I enjoyed ourselves, the game would have been more enjoyable had we been able to share the fun with our husbands. To wrap it up, the game has it's pros and cons. The Scrabble is approriately fun. The Sorry, and Yahtzee or basically rigged. The Connect 4 was interestingly fun. The Bop It malfunctions, so over all, the game is more disappointing than fun. Just got the game yesterday, returning it, today.

Come on Electronic Arts and subsidiaries. Give Nintendo fans a REAL game. First you made Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit totally suck for the Wii by comparison to the other systems (and it could have been as good... the ANDROID version is nearly as good as the other systems or at least is the same game). Then you turn around and make Need for Speed: The Run suck for Wii by comparison to other systems even though you haven't advertised differences for the Wii versions.
Then there is this game, which really isn't even a game. It is a series of mini-games (6 VERY SHORT and lamely done mini-games to be precise). There are $10 Wii downloadable titles that are better BY FAR. I love my Wii, but EA and other game makers seem out to get Nintendo even though they are an industry leader and EA is but a game developer. I am beginning to think that EA and others have been paid off by either Sony or Microsoft (or both) to get this done. This game repeatedly calls the "sides", "teams" despite that it can only have up to 2 players and a single player hardly constitutes a TEAM. EA obviously hasn't heard the phrase "No I in TEAM." Then, even if a player wins all of the mini-games it is still likely that they will lose because at the beginning there are "Crazy Money Cards" handed out at random and one of the cards contains more money than all of the other cards put together are worth. The narrator insists that the cards are chosen, as if the players were able to choose from a set of cards. This game plays like a game that hasn't even made it out of beta yet. DO NOT waste your Money by even renting this game, it is worthless. My 5 and 6 year old didn't even like it and they like some seriously mindless and idiotic games (though I love my children to death).
The narrations and sounds seem put on. The graphics are okay for a game of this type. The controls are annoying and unpredictable.
