A Tamagotchi would likely be an improvement on George Bush, but we can't bear going round this colourful board game long enough to find out.
If there's one thing the Wii has in spades, it's party games and minigame collections. With so many good games already out there, it's impossible to recommend a game like Party On! It's boring, there aren't enough minigames, and you can't play any of them with friends.
It's too bad, because the game's visuals makes one expect more Tamagotchi craziness and a more consistent inspiration from the original toys. The design of characters is as cute as ever, with simple animations that, according to what happens on the board, portray happy or disappointed Tamagotchis. The different settings in the game are colorful and full of strange characters bouncing the players from one side of the board to another. Even rolling the dice is a funny experience: Swinging the Wii remote up and down will hit an animated die on a spoon, making it roll, and a weird sound will come out of the remote itself. Very soon, though, the enthusiasm will fade and players will be left with a game without much long-term entertainment value. The party mentioned in the title is a very short one and players will likely decide to leave it early to knock on other doors: Rayman: Raving Rabbids and Wario Ware offer much more fun for only slightly more cash.
En essayant de copier sur son voisin Mario Party, Tamagotchi Party On! perd une bonne partie de ce qui faisait le charme de ses grands frères sur DS. Les mini-jeux sont devenus anecdotiques, et les plateaux n'offrent pas suffisamment d'intérêt pour éviter l'ennui, même à plusieurs.
Putting the style and pure comedic value aside, Tamagotchi: Party On! adds nothing to the Wii library, and just isn’t worth even a budget price tag. The mini-games are shallow and one-player only, each turn drags on far too long, and the sheer lack of any actual “party” elements keeps it from attaining even the basic – yet still redundant – entertainment found in the long-lived Mario Party series. If you’re looking for a party title on Wii, you’ll want to look to something like Rayman, Monkey Ball, Wario Ware, or even Mario Party over Tamagotchi, as the game lacks any real lasting appeal to make it worth not only the cash, but also the time it takes to complete a game. Wii is a party system, and there are/will be plenty of games to make great use of its causal nature. No matter how young, desperate, or niche you are, Tamagotchi: Party On! is a poor, poor choice.
If it were a ‘proper’ board game you might be able to forgive the glaring shortcomings, but as it stands Tamagotchi: Party On! is a full price videogame and, as such represents appalling value for money. Pre-pubescent fans of Bandai’s virtual pet money-spinner will no doubt jump at the chance to run for the coveted presidency of Planet Tamagotchi, but when the e-number fuelled haze has worn off, we think they’ll be bitterly disappointed by this woefully sub-par product.
Si vous êtes adepte des mini-jeux en pagaille, alors peut-être que ce jeu trouvera un écho chez vous. Sauf qu'il faut bien être conscient que ce qu'il vous attend est totalement dénué d'intérêt. Trop simples, trop courts, trop dépouillés de tout, ces mini-jeux n'arrivent jamais à passionner. Et que dire de ce mode plateau qui vous fera attendre votre tour... En solo, vous pourrez vaquer à d'autres occupations tellement le jeu peut tourner sans vous. Tamagotchi Party On ! est à jouer en multi, et encore...
