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.
Also if amazon is selling it for under £10, grab it!
Overall, a great fun game for the whole family!
this isn't just an Amazon problem as some stores and auction sites have exactly the same problems, so far i've tried to buy 5 copies of this game, one from a well known chain of stores even specified "with glasses" but it wasn't.
the game can be great fun, but, in the case of this title it really is a case of buyer beware.
My 4 year old daughter loves it, great for family fun and those party nights when you have your friends round.
Only downside is the use of only 1 remote, but great value for money!
A few of the tasks are just impossible to get right and it tends to be more luck than judgement.
That said the other 70% of the game is ok. It is an excellent family game and you can easily play with lots of people. Played it recently with around 10 people at a family gathering and was still enjoyable if slightly flawed.
