First off, if you're interested in this game, then you obviously like board games. Well here's the thing, just get the real board game. All these games are really great on their own but just horribly annoying in video game form. Annoying presentation, annoying rules always popping up right before you press a button, and just overall annoying! Take Battleship for example. Battleship is a GREAT game when you're playing it at home, but in this video game it’s a nauseous mix of button pressing and a game board constantly spinning around. Yahtzee is Yahtzee, but there is just something about jiggling a stick around to shake a cup that’s just not as fun as say....shaking a real cup. Sorry Sliders is a new edition but at its core is just a game of shuffle board with sorry pieces. Probably a lot of fun on your table with friends but in video game form just falls flat. So I'm leaving this review saying that Hasbro Family Game Night is a great concept, but in all honesty turn off the TV and just play the real games with your family. You're gonna have a lot more and Mr. Potato Head won't be standing there for no reason getting on your nerves. Overall 3 out of 10.

This game provides hours of casual entertainment for everyone young and old. I got it to play with my girlfriend and we both enjoy it very much. The presentation of the games is really well done, and a small variety of game modes and options for each game helps keep things fresh.
The setup is clean, the controls work just fine. Nothing to complain about. Each game has two new features which changes the original gameplay. Connect 4 and Battleships new features were awesome. Using a torpedo is a very original idea for Battleship!
