I have been playing computer games all my life and recently have begun to include my 5 year old daughter in this fun activity. This led to me purchasing a Wii U for us both and so when I saw Barbie Dreamhouse Party,with it's selection of mini games, I thought 'Perfect!'. But don't be fooled parents!
-The game consists of a very questionable storyline where Barbie and friends are under house arrest until they compete in a series of Mini Games under the watchful eye of a controlling robot. Once you've played each mini game the game is over.
-The mini games are very dull and the controls do not work well for young kids.
-The dreamhouse itself is not fun to explore because most of it is empty doors you cannot enter.
-There is a limited number of clothes for Barbie to wear in her wardrobe.
-No replayability (my daughter has only played it twice and is now back to playing Super Mario 3d World)
-No satisfying interactions with other Barbie characters, like Ken.
IF YOU WANT A GAME FOR KIDS, BUY 'SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD' or 'LEGO MARVEL SUPER HEROES' instead.
