"Nintendo's Wii has long been the family console of choice when it comes to parties and get-togethers. And it's not surprising, with its accessible interface and fun games - but now, to drill the point home, the company has released Wii Party to take that fun and crank it up to eleven. What's more, instead of focusing on a TV screen the whole time, Wii Party encourages social activity between family and friends. Over 13 different party modes are on offer here, each with a different gameplay scenario that requires the mastery of over 70 minigames to win. Board Game Island is one good example of this - a mode that puts up to four players on a virtual world full of squares, and has friends rolling dice to reach the end of the map.
