The Croods Prehistoric Party 

 

The Croods Prehistoric Party on the Wii and Wii  U is a party game based on The Croods movie from Dreamworks. This is a cave man family that competes against one another in thirty mini games. There is also board like games based on rolling dice and getting to the end space first.

Be sure to read the instructions before playing the mini games. They are on a tab before you go into the mini game. It does not take very long to get used to the different mini games. Most of them control the same. The Croods Prehistoric Party is game designed with four family members in mind. One person can play The Croods Prehistoric Party but the experience is not the same.

We have some mild violence in The Croods Prehistoric Party. In certain mini games we attack one another for dominance. There are also things like eggs being smashed, and rams being used to bash into one another. Family members have interesting things to say, and there is a definite feel of the movie.

I ran into one controversial item in The Croods Prehistoric Party. The highly divisive evolution is referenced. As someone who studied the issue, I can openly admit I do not believe in cave men. I do not believe in evolution either. I believe in creationism, and I am about 80% convinced of Young Earth. I suspect the controversial issue came from the movie itself, and was brought over to the game.

I like the mixture of the board game, and mini game tournaments in The Croods Prehistoric Party. While playing the board game, we only play mini games if a character lands on one of those squares. Which I like better than having to play them at the end of each round like in the Mario Party games.

The Croods Prehistoric Party does not allow families to save while playing through one of the board games. This is a mistake in my opinion. I like it when a party game lets me save at certain intervals. That way breaks can be taken. Up to four family members can enjoy The Croods Prehistoric Party. Only one of them can use the Wii U Gamepad. So the other three need to use Wii Remotes. Controls are different on the Wii Remotes. Families need to pay attention to this so everyone has a fair shot at victory.
