In case you didn't know, available for purchase at your local retailer are various party games for your Wii. "Oh stop talking crazy," you might say. "The Wii is a bastion of quality titles that anchor the hardcore gamer, exclusive of a multiplayer setting!" While this may be true in some cases, more often than not, Wii owners are finding many poorly produced, rushed, or uninspired party games landing on store shelves. While Carnival Games does have a certain degree of inherent charm and originality, it quickly falls into the deep, dark realm of mediocrity. It is never confused about what it's trying to be, but it doesn't necessarily do anything exceedingly well, either. Welcome to the midway.
