Party Games

#1 Posted by thebignasty (65 posts) -

I'm looking into getting a fun multi-player game for the Wii.  I've played out WarioWare, so that's out of the question.  I also can't really afford Mario Kart right now, since no place seems to have it in stock for a reasonable price.  My primary options are Boom Blox, Mario Party, and possibly (my girlfriend thought it would be fun) Cooking Mama.  Any thoughts?

Yeah, Mario Party or maybe Guitar Hero.

Ya you should get Mario Party, even though the latest Mario Party 8 sucks.

Yeah, sorry, I couldn't wait for the party or multi-player section to get put up.robbob88 said:

So...I should get it even though it sucks?  I already have GH and RB for my xbox, but it turns out that my sister has Mario Party and, so I think I'm gonna go with Boom Blox.  I liked the other Mario Partys, but I'm not sure if I'm willing to spend 30+ on a game that got subpar reviews.

Thanks for the help by the way.  Oh, and I tried Brain Age, but it wasn't really my type of game.

In my opinion Mario Party 4 was the best. It was the most basic but very very fun mini games.

I'd reccommend Mario Party, although it might be a better idea to just save up for Mario Kart Wii.

Mario Party 8, hence the word 'party' in the title.

I hate to say it but Cooking Mama was pretty decent

I suggest mariokart, just managed to borrow it of a friend played it online a few times and it really played out well. If your not a racing man i say marioparty thats always a solid party game.

O yea Mario Kart is awesome for parties. Might wanna consider that.

Boom Blox is awesome, I definitely recommend it. Aside from the shooting mode that just makes me ask "why?" there isn't a part of that game I haven't liked.

Mario Party, Kart or even Brawl is good.

Get Boom Blox! Trust me, the single-player is a lot of fun. But when you start playing the multiplayer you won`t be able to put the Wiimote down. My family doesn`t like games that much but once I put Boom Blox during my birthday several people stopped to watch that strange game where you need to destroy huge towers and do many other actions. A few minutes later I was wishing the Wii had support for sixteen Wiimotes.

Cool, thanks for the help.  I ended up getting Boom Blox because I found a new copy on ebay for 35 bucks.  I watched the review, and it looked pretty fun, so I don't think I'll be disappointed.

Boooooooooooom Blox. Best, most accessible party game on the Wii, if not ever.
