Wii Party reviewed.

Oct. 12, 2010— -- Microsoft's highly-anticipatedWindows Phone 7 operating system will be in stores November 8. The system works with nine separate phone models.

Wii Party

If you're looking to have fun with the entire family, you may want to try out Wii Party. It's set up to look like a board game, similar to the game of life. Players advance by testing their skills at 80 different minigames within the Wii Party game.

"The way you move forward is you win all these minigames" said USA Today's Mike Snider, "everything from hiding a Wii remote and playing hide and seek with it to a really cute animal-sounds game." Up to four people can play Wii Party at one time.
