Active Life Magical Carnival





Active Life Magical Carnival 


The Active Life series of video games have been huge. Namco Bandai continue to publish this series, and do it in different ways. This time it is a mixture of magical things, and the carnival. If you have ever played any of the Carnival Games video games then you can understand the atmosphere. Active Life Magical Carnival is a little different since there is a magician (reminded me of Gandalf), and a Ghost House.

The ghosts in Active Life Magical Carnival have a comical look about them. The haunted house atmosphere could scare younger members of the family. Things like chandeliers falling down, and painting flying at the player can also be frightening. Other characters like witches are present. The rest of Active Life Magical Carnival is very bright and colorful. I enjoyed the circus tent personally. It also has some of the best games.

The music in Active Life Magical Carnival promotes the total atmosphere of this home console video game. Completing books resulting in more people coming to the Magical Carnival. I noticed this in some of the games because there would be more cheering for me. This little attention to detail is what makes the Active Life franchise so much fun.

The five themes in Active Life Magical Carnival are circus, parade, pirate ship, haunted house, and magic fantasy. Combined these provide twenty-five imaginative attractions. Two family members can enjoy Active Life Magical Carnival at the same time. You will need the Mat Controller to play this Wii game. It is a little different from a dance pad.

Active Life Magical Carnival is so kind to families. It starts with easy games that require minimal physical excursion. You may need to get down on all fours, but that is easier than running in place. The deeper a family member gets the more challenging Active Life Magical Carnival becomes. The best part of this Wii game is the exercise that is attained in an entertaining way.

I learned to read all of the instructions before playing Active Life Magical Carnival. This is very important so I could learn how to play them. I also learned that exercise can be fun. Popping balloons while riding a motorcycle inside a steel ball can be disorientating, but it is the coolest thing I have ever done inside a video game. I hope that Namco Bandai continue to publish games in the Active Life franchise. I wonder if this series would work on Kinect.
