    I'm torn at this point. I am having people over next weekend for poker and various activities which I know will turn into a lot of Wii play (have a friend bringing his controllers over so we'll have 4 Wiimotes rolling) I want to have a solid fun group game. The runner so far are:

    Wii Sports - Obvious and I know people will like it.

    Then I'm at a toss up, I planned on picking up a party game this week, but Warioware won't be out in time. Which leaves basically Rayman or Monkey ball. Which would you guys recommend?

    Are the minigames in Monkeyball really that broken?
    Is Rayman fun with 4 people?

    Rayman

    I'd Choose Rayman. But thats because I dont like the monkey ball games.

    DO NOT CHOOSE RAYMAN, NO SIMULTANEOUS MULTIPLAYER WHATSOEVER, YOU HAVE TO TAKE TURNS AND IT'S TERRIBLE!

    I reckon Wii Sports will keep you guys busy. Or perhaps take turns on Wii Play.

    they are both fine choices. but id go with monkey ball. you can get pretty crazy with quite a few of those games. in home run derby it only senses motion, so you can basically swing the wiimote any way u want and it will swing. my friend actually stuck the wiimote in his sock and did a karate kick motion and hit it 700+ feet. plus youve got the classic monkey target is pretty decent. im not sure if you have 4 nunchucks but that would make the game even better.

    I've noticed a trend here.

    Everyone who doesn't own Rayman suggests Rayman while everyone else suggests Monkeyball.

    If your into football, then what about Madden? I have it and it's a great party game. Then again me and my friends are all in our mid 20's.

    I've not played Monkey Ball, but Rayman is very good. As was mentioned, you have to take turns, but they're like 1-2 minute turns, so you can rotate very quickly.

    I own both games, and i would say monkey ball is a better game for multiplayer. If you plan on renting these games for multiplayer use, monkey ball is the way to go since you don't have to unlock the mini games through single player, like in rayman. The majority of the games in rayman, you have to take turns and might make some people bored just watching each other play. Monkey ball in the other hand, a lot of the games are simultaneous play, but for the games that aren't they go really quick anyways.

    Hey, no one said red steel. If you like the controls it is great multiplayer fun. My friends and I got 4 wiimotes on the 65" and had great time. Never figured out if there was swords in it though. I did beat the game too.
