Continuing in the same vein as RoboJam and Jungle Party, Monster Rumble is a collection of party games that utilize the Buzz controllers for robust button-bashing rather than testing your reflexes in a quiz show format. As the title suggests the theme here is ‘monsters’, specifically cartoony ones - so as not to give the kids nightmares - and the presentation is suitably energetic and enthusiastic. The minigames, however, are of an inconsistent quality. Some are genuinely funny - such as pumpkin-bashing and racing on barrels - but others often require people to take turns, something that slows down the action. That’s not a disaster, but it’s far from the perfect party experience. So just make sure the folks you get to play this with you are both young and undemanding.
