Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

While the activities are uniformly easy to learn, many are surprisingly challenging to master. Getting the right amount of force for shuffleboard and horseshoes takes time and practice, as does getting your aim just right in darts and puck bowling. And with multiple variations on several of the games -- there are five different ways to play darts, for example -- the chances of players growing bored after just a few plays are remote. Toss in the new tournament functionality, which lets up to 16 people take turns playing in a variety of multi-game modes, including best-of series, head-to-head challenges, and marathon length winner-moves-on matches, and you have an almost perfect party game for big family shindigs.

The Wii's library has quickly become crowded with budget party games, but Game Party 2 stands head and shoulders above the vast majority of its competition.
