- The minigames aren't as fun as those in mario party. - The minigames are single player. - Waiting for other players to finish their mini-games gets boring. - Winning pretty much depends on landing on a certain spot. No strategy involved. - The game takes too long to finish.
I rented this after having some fun making cakes in Tamagotchi Corner Store on the DS. Party On doesn't capture that crafty experience, instead the lesson is that life is a popularity contest based on random events.
While this might make for an OK automated babysitter, I wouldn't want to be pulled into a round of the board game. Ideally, a kids game would be interesting enough to enjoy with your kid.
