Review: Hasbro Family Game Night (DS)
When I first saw this game advertised, I was not really sure whether I would like it or not. However, I decided to take a chance and order it anyway. I'm really glad that I did.
'Hasbro Family Game Night' allows gamers to play four of Hasbro's best-selling games on their DS. The games included on this volume includes: 'Battleships', 'Bop It', 'Connect 4' and 'Operation'.
Players can pit their skills against a variety of computerised opponents or challenge their friends and family in wireless mode. There are different backgrounds and awards that can be unlocked throughout the game. Mr. Potato Head acts as host for each of the games that you play and also decides which player goes first in each game.
Each of the four games has a 'classic mode' and a special game mode that gives players the chance to play a unique version of the game. For example, in 'Battleships', players can choose to use enhanced weapons against their opponent, including grenades, torpedoes, rocket launchers, etc.
Essentially this DS title is just a compilation of mini-games, of course, but each game is presented in a aesthetically-pleasing 3D-style and the award system makes it a fun game to replay over and over again. 0verall 'Mini Gamer' rating: 8/10.
