2.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Blasé, 25 Jan. 2008

= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Cranium Kabookii (Wii) (Video Game)
Let me start off my saying that I've never played the board game of this, but the Wii game was selling reasonably and I thought I would add it to our collection.

A downer, for starters is that the game only uses one remote, since it is made for team play, it gets a bit annoying have to keep passing one remote between all players.

That aside, the drawing is not as impossible as some reviews have made out, you just need to adjust the sensitivity of your Wii Remote. Also, it is kinda funny while you're trying to get the hang of it and look like you're drawing like a 5 year old - might I add that despite this, what was being drawn was eventually guessed on almost all counts.

The most frustrating game is the Drama/Charades one. You are suppost to turn around and have your team give you hints about the motion you should be doing, ie. Stoking a Fire or Unlocking a Door. We gave up on this completely however and even whilst looking at the screen and knowing exactly what you have to do, this was next to impossible. You could try stoking the virtual fire until you were blue in the face and only eventually after what seems like forever, it then decides to accept your action as correct - for no given reason whatsoever.

The general knowledge questions are quite challenging and they tend to ask a lot of questions regarding the names of actors. This will definitely frustrate any little ones in the group. Although I suppose that is why it is played in teams, as surely at least one team member on each side donated a fair portion of brain space to remembering actor's names. :P

Overall, I actually enjoy the drawing part of this game the most and would be happy even if it were just plain old Pictionary. Although, after looking at the screen for a while, you can actually make out the code word even without the decoder glasses.

This game is okay for a rainy day, but definitely not up there with the other Wii games currently on the market.
