Customer Reviews of Carnival Games
Talk about a surprise! This game offers exactly what you'd expect... mindless single player fun. Try it during a break from "Metroid Prime Corruption." With multiple players, though, this may be THE ultimate drunken Wii party game! It's certainly much better than Wii Play or Mario Party 8. It's a shame this has slipped under so many gaming site's rader and likely won't get the attention it deserves. This game fits the Wii perfectly... fun for everyone of all ages.
We have really enjoyed this game. Not something that you will play everyday, but once a month, we break it out and kill a few hours with it as a family. My 8yo and 11yo can compete with the adults and win many of the games. Challenging and fun for kids and adults. Good for a party
More fun than a Carnival1/8/2009
We love Carnival Games! My children are 10 & 15 and the whole family enjoys playing. Lots of mini games to play. Different games seem better for different skill levels so we all have our favorites. Lots of fun, easy to understand and play. Graphics are great - very colorful.
A Fun Family Game12/30/2008
This game is great for the whole family. Both young and old can enjoy the variety of activities offered as you navigate your way through the carnival. The game play is enhanced as you win prizes and are allowed to trade-up for large ones. This game offers so much--challenges, skill, fun, competition, and the ability to unlock new games and prizes! Game is easy to play and it offers prompts before each game to show you how to play with the controller and also reads the directions aloud to you. This feature is great for non-gamers or young children who may not be reading fluently yet. I highly recommend this game to everyone, you won't be disappointed!
3 year old digs this on Wii8/22/2008
I got this for my 3 year old based on the recommendation of a friend. My 3 year old has been pretty good on the computer and we got a Wii to see if he'd be able to figure it out. He loves this game! He is able to figure out most of the motion and the way the game plays it allows him to win tickets to buy new outfits (i.e. cowboy hat, bicycle helmet) and other accessories (i.e. scuba tank) for his Carnival character to wear around the park. Very cute & recommended for younger kids.
Decent gaming for the Wii6/11/2008
Many of the current Wii games are notably poorly executed as reviewers have noted both professionally and in these reviews. We have been disappointed in many we have purchased to date. I purchased "Carnival Games" in an attempt to find some non-violent entertainment for my grandsons (4 & 9 years). This carnival themed collection meets that requirement and is also fun and entertaining. One can quibble over the execution of these games but overall the entire family enjoys playing it. The four year old has taken it over and is having a great time 'winning' the costume 'prizes' in an attempt to complete his wardrobe. At 59 I found it interesting in the first go around and playable still in the company of the children. I have been a computer gamer since 1995 and presently play RPGs both online and off, most notably DAOC, Guild Wars, Morrowind, Mass Effect, etc.

The game has been fun for groups and for family - even our 4 year old grandson can understand the games on the disk. Creative. Fun. Wide variety of carnival-type games.

GREAT FAMILY FUN1/5/2008
This game is very entertaining and fun for the whole family,there are many different games to choose from. We have had friends over to play and took it to a family gathering and everyone from age five all the way to fifty five had a great time.
I ordered this game for my nephew for Christmas 2007. I decided to purchase most of my gifts this year via the internet and Buy.com was dependable. The game arrived within a few days of ordering. The price was comparable to Toys R Us, who was sold out of this game, as well as Target. This was a popular game for kids this year. I visited other websites that were selling the same game for $20 more than Buy.com. I would use them again.
This game is great for young and old. Very easy to play
The Best game ever!!!1/1/2008
We love this game. Can't stop playing it. I have recommended this game to everyone I know that owns a Wii or is intending on buying one.
My daughter loves this game its one of the best games she received for Christmas. We all have fun with this game
This game is fun for our family, 2 adults, 2 kids 8 & 4, it's challenging enough for the 8 yr old but easy enough for the 4 year old. There is enough games to play for variety, we don't end up playing the same one over and over. I would recommend it
Fun for all ages11/1/2007
This game is a must if you have Wii parties, or play with family and friends, it is not much fun to play alone. Fun for all ages, from my 3 year old to Grandma. Some of the games are a little too easy for adults.
