The titles of the board games featured in Hasbro Family Game Night 3 are definitely more famous than those in the last installment of the series. Clue, Twister, Mousetrap, and The Game of Life are all definitive classics. Yet the gameplay has been so drastically altered on some of them that they resemble the original board games in theme only. Clue, for instance, has become a somewhat confusing mish-mash of moving around a board and playing reflex-testing mini-games. Twister bares no resemblance to the original game -- instead, it's a button-pressing rhythm game set as a dance contest between avatars. Shouldn't they have at least had the avatars on a Twister mat? The Game of Life plays perfectly well as a direct translation of the board game, which is why it's actually kind of annoying when you're suddenly forced to play a target-hitting mini-game. It's not that these games aren't fun, it's just that they're all a bit too far removed from their source material.

Online interaction: All three console versions of the game offer online play. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions allow unmoderated voice chat during online play, including with strangers.
