Family Party: Fitness Fun is the latest in a franchise of mini-games collections that have all been somewhat lackluster. The amount of games is good -- more than thirty. And the price is nice -- only twenty bucks. But the activities themselves are very blah. Many of them are rather dull and the ones that could be more exciting are marred by frustrating controls. For one mini-game -- in which your avatar eats a lot of food and you are then supposed to shake your controller to exercise your character and burn off the calories consumed -- four players wiggling their remotes like lunatics didn't manage to score a single burned calorie for anybody. Our testers wondered if we were all doing something wrong, but the tutorial was so unclear that we had no idea. This is not to say that the mini-games are all that bad. Some work just fine and even have the potential to be entertaining. But there are far better mini-game collections on the market.
