Birthday Party Bash Review

Recently, 2K Play released Birthday Party Bash, a new game exclusively for the Wii. Birthday Party Bash is described as a "party-in-a-box." But I was still surprised to find 12 invitations, coupons for party supplies, and a party-planning guide inside. It also contains over 20 party games to play on the Wii.

When you start the game, you first need to pick a theme, from pirates or sports to princesses or glamour. Kids even create their own character and characters for all of their guests. Then they can play the games, including sack races, balloon popper, and musical chairs, among many others.
What we thought:
My four year old had a blast playing the games. His favorite was pin the tail on the donkey. He thought it was hilarious to watch and see who could get their tail the closest. (It was usually him!) He also really enjoyed red light green light. He found both games easy to compare to the real life activities, and easily followed the directions.

Hubby was in charge of getting the game ready to play, and got very frustrated trying to synch the remotes. Apparently, it's done a little differently than other games he's played. However, there are clear directions on how to synch them in the instruction booklet. He just "forgot" to read that first.

The Birthday Party Bash would make a great activitiy for a video game lovers birthday or as a fun indoor activity during a party. It's rated E for everyone, and it was enjoyable for both hubby and I and our 4 year old.

Thanks to Mom Central for providing a copy for our review!

Looks like fun, we may have to rent it if we see it at Blockbuster :) My son has a tendency to only play a game for a week or 2 then forget about it!
