Guilty Party for Wii
Game Publisher: Disney Interactive
Guilty Party is Disney's latest attempt at creating new video games, and the results are very impressive. Guilty Party is best described as a mix between a classic Disney story and the board game/movie Clue. The title tells the story of the Dickens Detective Agency and its group of rag tag sleuths, both young and old. Mr. Valentine, the game's big bad villain, has kidnapped the Commodore's wife and it is now up to the sleuths to gather clues, find out the suspects and put Mr. Valentine behind bars once and for all.
The game is a party game that allows up to four players, perfect for the whole family. Game play takes places in a series of boards where you investigate its rooms and talk to the suspects. Investigating a clue or talking to a suspect are presented as mini-game activities that use the Wii Remote in unique and fun ways. For example, you can dust off a clue by shaking the Wii Remote like a brush, you can pick a lock by twisting and turning the controller and if you are talking to a suspect you can bribe them, intimidate them and even organize their thoughts by pointing with the Wii Remote. These mini-games are very fun and easy to learn, preventing the investigations from becoming slow and stale.
Of course, Mr. Valentine won't make it easy for you. With every turn he will use trap cards that will make your investigation that much harder. Luckily, you can use cards of your own. Some of them will unlock doors, transport you to another location and even bring the suspects to you. Once you have gathered all of the clues you must analyze them, read all the vital information and once you have the basic characteristics you go to a suspect and confront them regarding the crime. The suspect will begin to ask you questions so you must show them the correct piece of them that will shatter their alibi. The game is won when the suspect gives up and confesses to the crime.
Players can either play co-operatively or competitive. This allows families with younger players to help each other out or players with a competitive thirst play Guilty Party however they want it. The main gameplay modes include story mode and party mode. In Party Mode, the cases will always be different, assuring that players will never experience the same case every time they play. The difficulty setting can also be changed according to the player. If a player is new to the game they can play in an easier difficulty setting while older players seeking a challenge can do so by selecting a higher difficulty setting.
Guilty Party is a fun, engaging and quirky experience that both families and Disney fans shouldn't miss out on. With a silly story featuring some very fun characters, a very well designed gameplay system and many modes of plays, Guilty Party is one mystery that shouldn't go unsolved.
