    You're basing this off a 1 minute preview of 1 of the 30ish games included in it? Nice. Yeah, the shooting is kind of easy but still fun. The strength tester and a lot of the other games take a lot of effort.

    Try it out before you knock it.

    that expotv site pays people to make video reviews. video games are 5 bucks a pop. i have made a few hundred bucks making them myself, you should join and post your own review of carnival games. i mostly watch the video game ones before i decide to buy them. thank god i saw how easy that game was haha

    Well it has sold over 500,000 copies - more than Metroid Prime 3. I'm glad I bought it... the flying bear is worth it alone!

    I own Carnival Games and am enjoying the myriad of games so far, but I haven't yet seen a flying bear. Is that one of the prizes? :shocked:

    lol...That has got to be the worst review I have EVER seen. I counted 24 "um's" in the review. Ok ok, I will leave the children alone now.

    well expotv is a site of reviews made by average consumers and not the "professional" critics who use a set list of criteria for everything they review. you can make reviews if you want :lol: and get $5 while doing it

    Yes it is such a WTF!?? prize. When you win it it's a normal bear that flaps his arms and says "Flying Bear, Flying Bear..." over and over again. It's hilarious.

    And no that is not the bear in the picture.

    LOL! Haven't 'won' that one yet, apparently! I did win a dragon that says "dragon", though. Quite a few WTF prizes in this, I wonder exactly what kind of medicines the developers were taking... :cool:

    LOL; it was like a rubber neck while passing a highway crash scene. I listened to it 3 times and counted 17 "um's."

    Lol, pedobear.

    But yeah, I feel as if this game is a slap in the face to gamers. It just shows that a game with ONLY minigames can sell.

    How is it a slap in the face if people are buying it?

    It may not appeal to the gamers out there, but my 5-year-old loves it. She can play most of the games without having any help or needing an adult to do things for her. For a young kid who wants to play on the Wii on her own, a game like this is worth it, IMNSHO.

    And FTR, not all games are super-duper easy. My husband and I have both played some of the games, and a few of them require a steady head and a thinking brain. They're not just fluffy.

    Good description BlueEyes. Have you tried the nerves-o-steel game? I don't think I have ever beat that one. Frustratingly impossible. I get pity tickets for trying though. The strength tester requires practically running in place to shake the wiimote enough. The darts take some getting used to, but my favorite is probably super-spilled milk where you can knock down the giant piles of milk bottles. Ski-ball and hoops are also great.

    Judging this game based off a 1 minute preview is just silly. I would rather listen to a real reviewer anyway. OP is probably the kid in the video, gets paid by how many viewers there were. Probably trying to be controversial so we all look at it.

    ummm yeah, this game is incredibly challenging, most of the minigames will have you pressing the little red power button after a few trys

    How true. That Nerves-o-Steel game is impossible for me. I am still amazed at how much it feels like I'm getting an electric shock when I botch it up! I found the football throw game tough like the darts; similar motion but having to contend with the moving tires. I really do enjoy the hoops shot, and dunking the redneck, though! :crazy:
