One giant commercial for Home Depot, but minigames are fun.

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our House: Party! can provide an entertaining multi-player experience, as long as players are comfortable with incredibly unsubtle marketing throughout by Home Depot. Minigame collections for the Nintendo Wii are a dime a dozen , but the competitions in Our House feel fresh and different. And unlike many other collections of this type, each of the minigames in Our House actually leads toward one central goal. How you perform on each individual project will effect the appearance of your virtual house throughout the remainder of the competition. The ramifications of losing a round can actually be quite comical. For instance, if you come in fourth place in the porch-building challenge, your otherwise beautiful Victorian home will be stuck with a ridiculously ramshackle entryway, including dangling planks of wood and random holes in the porch floor.

One other big gripe: there are random events that occur between rounds, which will either raise or lower a player's score, and could potentially decide the winner of the game in a very anti-climactic way.

Online interaction: Players can share their saved houses with registered friends.
