Game Party Champions
Game Party Champions is the first Wii U
game I have ever played. It is wonderful to see this franchise move from
the Wii to the Wii U. There are only eight arcade games in Game Party
Champions though. There is a story that families will find interesting.
A good friend encourages us to play these games.
The games in Game Party Champions range visually. Some look better than others. Some of the games appear on the Wii U Gamepad and others show up on the main television screen. It all depends on the game. Game Party Champions contains Baseball, Hoop Shoot, Football, Ping Pong, Water Gun, Skill Ball, Miniature Golf, and Air Hockey.
All eight mini games in Game Party Champions are playable from the start. There are a few different modes that can be unlocked as the player progresses through the game. Story mode requires the mini games to be replayed multiple times against different computer opponents. Their difficulty increases with each replay.
Game Party Champions is a mixed bag in a variety of ways. Air Hockey is exhausting to play. We have to keep the stylus in contact with the Wii U Gamepad touch screen. The computer has a bad habit of grabbing ahold of the puck and moving it around. The longer the games took the more exhausted my hand was.
I noticed a couple of graphical errors in Game Party Champions. I am not clear why but certain things jumped or did not look right. The best example was in Ping Pong. I would hit the ball to the right, and the computer character would step over there. At that point the ball would vanish into their body, and they would not even try to hit it. It gave me points so I did not complain.
Football and Hoop Shot are all about getting the timing right. I learned how to swipe at different lengths and speeds on the touch screen of the Wii U Gamepad to get the ball to go the appropriate distance. Moving the Gamepad around to line things up was another aspect of Game Party Champions.
Game Party Champions uses the Wii U Gamepad in conjunction with the television screen. So we do one thing on the Gamepad and watch what we are doing on the television screen. The Baseball game where we are hitting balls at a wall with different numbers is one of the most interesting games in Game Party Champions.
