How Entertaining is the Game Play in Birthday Party Bash?
Birthday Party Bash is a simple video game that will improve the experience of a birthday party but it isn't a replacement for a tasty cake and the smile of friends. This video game's game play is entertaining enough for a group of kids below the age of seven or eight. You start by selecting from ten different birthday party themes. Selections appropriate for both boys and girls have been included, like a princess in a royal castle and pirates with swords and a treasure chest. After this, you need to customize your birthday character you'll use during the game by age, sex, and looks. Your next step is to invite up to twelve people to the birthday party using the 12 ready to mail invitations that are included.
One of the best and most entertaining parts of having a birthday party can be decorating the room where the festivities will occur. Birthday Party Bash tries to make it more entertaining with a series of mini-games to help you fill your virtual room with all the decorations to keep the party going. Add party hats, special chairs, presents to mark the occasion in style, or a banner with the name of the birthday boy or girl. The games were very simple which is great for younger kids and it should keep them entertained for a few minutes.

Birthday Party Bash is definitely one of the 5 best Wii games for hardcore gamers below the age of 5, I have ever reviewed.

How Does Birthday Party Bash Look?
Birthday Party Bash has an average graphical presentation that's only suitable for kids and it's not going to be on the list of the 5 best Wii games. Young kids are the intended audience for this title, which is probably why they didn't try to do anything more than they had to with the presentation. It wouldn't have hurt for them to add a little more for the eye to enjoy. Constantly looking at bland party environments with a few simple party accessories wasn't much fun. They did include a nice variety of themed birthday party environments that each make for a nice party atmosphere. The colors are soft and there's basic party elements in the environments that will keep the kids entertained as they play the game.

How do the Controls Work in Birthday Party Bash?
Birthday Party Bash makes great use of the point and click ability of the Wii remote to make this video game easy enough for a three year old to operate. This simple system was perfectly smooth during use and I experienced no Wii remote accidents of any kind. Cat Daddy Games did a good job of making the control system implemented in this video game easy to use and flawless in execution. This system isn't set up to use the Wii MotionPlus accessory but then it isn't necessary with the simple game play included with this Wii video game.

How are the Sounds in Birthday Party Bash?
The sound track included with Birthday Party Bash includes a score of lighthearted children's songs that sounds okay but they repeat so often that they become old really quick. The songs that play change with the theme you choose for the party but they still repeat too often. The best part is the birthday song that plays at the end of the video game. This song will actually include the name of the birthday boy or girl and is a nice touch that the kids will love.
