Gotta agree with Vince47. My 4 yr-old was flat out disgusted how boring this game was. I figured it would be an easy and fun time with my son until I realized this is a trophy-grind game only.
Even as far as party games go, this is a game unfit for anything but the Wii, being a party game-type console with simple buttons. Four buttons are needed to play the entire game, so do NOT look for complexity or uniqueness. May as well buy Mario Party and save the yourself frustration.
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!
