With so many mini-game collections on sale for the Wii, it's sometimes difficult just to tell them apart, but Ultimate Party Challenge deserves to be noticed, because it really is a standout of the genre, especially for younger players. While the need for a DDR floorpad can be annoying if you don't already have one, the use of the floorpad in playing these games adds a very fun active element not present in other mini-game collections. For games in which all four players compete simultaneously, each is assigned one of the four directional buttons on the floorpad -- and everybody standing together stomping their feet in close proximitiy is actually a whole lot of fun. There's a version of the old schoolyard game Red Light, Green Light, for instance, which is played out marvelously in this manner. The great variety among games also adds a lot of enjoyability to the experience.
