Not only are they easy to make, but they also have the pick-up-and-play aspect that makes them very appealing to both the hardcore and casual gamer alike. The same goes for party games, which the Nintendo Wii has in abundance. The popularity of both consoles has led publishers to take their popular Nintendo DS puzzle titles and make them work on the Nintendo Wii by adding party and multiplayer aspects. While it can work some of the time, the experience is mostly diluted and makes for an experience that doesn't replicate the original game very well. WordJong Party belongs in the minority because even with the additional elements, the title translates into a good gaming experience for solitary and multiplayer game sessions."
