Let’s face it, when it comes to mini game collections and their quality on Nintendo consoles there have been franchises like Mario Party or WarioWare on one end of the spectrum (though Mario Party has had its troubles, without a doubt) and pretty much everything on the other extreme end that simply don’t work well. While PoTY may be lacking in some of the refinement and features that could make it more capable of contending with those first-party powerhouses for more than a round or two I will say that among the category of “everything else” it shines unusually brightly, especially if you’re looking to play with your family of all ages. Most of the events and challenges are simple enough, and many are also very relatable involving household chores or activities and that helps add to the fun. What also shows some extra effort is a competent single-player adventure version where you’ll play as one of the title sisters, competing all around town to have the honor of throwing the said Party of the Year. While maybe a bit rough around the edges, if you’re a fan of Nintendo’s party titles but are looking for roughly the next best thing out there this may be the strongest secondary choice out there.
