A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Game Party Champions wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning
This game is most fun when played with other players, so it encourages social gaming and getting together with friends and family.
Ease of Play
This game features a variety of very simplistic mini-games. It is designed to be as accessible and user-friendly as possible. For the most part, players draw their enjoyment from this game not by overcoming great challenges but by playing against friends to get the highest score. Most of the mini-games use basic motion-based controls with the GamePad and some require players to use basic touchscreen controls.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Game Party Champions is a collection of several sports-themed arcade-style mini-games. This includes shooting basketballs into a hoop, completing a round of mini-golf, playing a Skee Ball-type game, and competing in table hockey or ping pong. The game is best when played with up to three other players, as everyone competes to see who can get the highest scores. There is also a single-player mode in which the player tries to become the "World Champion." There is no objectionable content in this game.

Is It Any Good?
Game Party Champions provides an adequate experience for players who want a quick and easy-to-understand game to play with their friends. This game should not be purchased for the single-player mode, which just pits players against computer-controlled opponents and has very little in the way of redeeming qualities. The miniature golf mini-game, for example, crawls at a snail's pace and the graphics are subpar. For multiplayer competitions, though, the game can be fun. Its biggest flaw is that there is a lot of waiting in between games, which hurts its reputation as a "party" game. Nevertheless, the selection of mini-games is solid, and some of them, such as the basketball-shooting game, can become downright addicting as players go for the high score. For the most part, though, the entire experience comes across as either frustrating or boring, which in turn fades the redeeming qualities that this game does have.
Did we miss something on diversity?
