Nintendo Life: The Croods: Prehistoric Party Review

Nintendo Life: As a video game adaptation of Dreamworks' cave-dweller caper, The Croods: Prehistoric Party casts the film's characters in a Mario Party-style experience for up to four players. It borrows heavily from Nintendo's series, linking disparate mini-games together with a simple board game conceit. Like the movie's titular Neanderthal family encountering fire for the first time, gamers tend to approach movie tie-ins with apprehension, and unfortunately those reservations are mostly warranted here. Prehistoric Party is a collection of largely unexceptional mini-games wrapped up in a lackluster board game package, and its appeal will be limited to younger players for whom the lure of the license trumps the mundane gameplay. (The Croods: Prehistoric Party, Wii U) 4/10

When has a movie game ever been good? They are all usually sub par.

This sort of crap doesn't do the Wii U library any favours :( Why bother making this?
