Like the preview says this game is geared as a party game & for kids. Of Course if your thing is Forza & such then this isn't going to be your cup of tea. BUT if you have young kids & want to spend time w/ them having a great time, say on Family Fun/Game Night then this game is the one. (You can put Forza down for about an hour or 2 for the little ones, right?!) I even played it 1 night w/ a few girlfriends that came over for a few drinks & had fun competing! Doesn't quite follow a specific story line, has about 35-40 plus mini games. Great for the small ones to follow & easy enough for the youngest to not get frustrated. My 3 & 5 year old have a blast playing each other. It took my 3 year old about 3 times to get the hang of it & then he loved it. I don't let them play too much video games so that probably also helped the 5 yr old to keep wanting to play it because she didn't play all the mini games in a week & had a long while before she got to almost all of them.
Like I said - it's a great party, multi person, young kids, family time type of game! Please don't give it low points because you are comparing it to other games geared towards teens & older!
This is actually a great party game! What do you want when the cover says "Party Game!" This is a huge collection of mini games all themed from the movie Rio of course.
The character models, animations and scenery look very nice and clean. The gameplay is also very clean. All the controls for the minigames are very easy to understand so anyone can play this game!
This game has 40 if not more different mini games which are all different. Its true that a few are very easy but most are a lot of fun to play. You can play by yourself with the AI but this game is a lot more fun with more users. Unless you have friends to play with this game can get old a little quick. But it will have its fun for the first few passes.
There are a few game modes like Story which follow the events of the story but it just changes the location for the games. There's a few other modes too like Carnival Wheel which spins a wheel to see what game you'll be playing then spin again for the points. There's a lot of variety to keep you busy for a little while!
There's no online multiplayer but then again if they added it then the game wouldn't have been as polished as it is. Most party games like this are local multiplayer only but I think they should start getting off that boat.
Overall I think they did a great job making the mini games around the movie. This is certainly a rent if your into party games or if you liked if not loved the movie and wanted to play the game like me and see how they matched. But then again a $30 price tag for a new copy isn't bad either!
If your not into these types of games then don't play it! If your a hardcore gamer that plays certain genre then you probbaly wont like this. But if your an all around gamer and have seen the the movie then I think you'll have fun with this one!

Ok, I got this for my 4 year old son to play becasue he fell in love with the movie...he loves the game even more and now his best friend comes over to play the game. It's not a game for me to play by myself but when my wife or I want to play a game with him then this is the game for us
