The games and mini-games are cute and fun. However, I was expecting that once the games were finished it would unlock a "sandbox" mode where I could buy & customize furniture. While you can customize your character, I was hoping you could create and design your own wardrobe fashions and share them with friends- this is not the case. As a little girl I always wanted a real Barbie Dreamhouse and while it is a cute game in and of itself, if you are looking to recapture the "sandbox" Barbie experience that you had as a child but in digital form then this game will not live up to your expectations.

What to expect: At first glance, Barbie™ Dreamhouse Party™ may appear to be a game aimed at children and fans of the Barbie franchise, and that's what it is. This, "game" is, at it's core, targeted to audiences that already share a love of the Barbie franchise and series; as well as those foreign to the franchise who may be looking to engross themselves in it. It allows the player an opportunity to experience life in the Barbie dreamhouse, in a virtual realm. The gameplay is pretty straight forward. At the end of the day, Barbie™ Dreamhouse Party™ is your standard run-around-collect'em-all. You'll be spending most of your time viewing your gallery of photos and videos, taking screen shots of your favorite outfits, unlocking items and equipping items gained through playing mini-games with your pals, playing a variety of mini-games with Barbie and friends, searching for new things to add to your photo gallery and having brief, straightforward small talk with your pals, scattered throughout the house (not to forget Ken).



-So, without further hesitation, let's get into the meat of the game. What can you really expect?



Pros: Well, this game is fairly simple. Easy on the eyes and on the mind. Don't expect any cringingly difficult puzzles or intense bloody pvp action (although why would you from a Barbie game?). So, what does this game have to offer? This game has decent replay value. The collecting portion of the game will be enough to last you for a few hours and after that, the game is what you make of it. If you are a completionist with an established inclination towards games that fall on the more "casual" side, then this game is most definitely suited for you. Moving past that though, special consideration must be made in regards to the actual gameplay, i.e. the mini-games. The mini-games are a bundle of fun, depending of course on what you're looking for in a game. They are incredibly simple and easy to master.








Cons: The initial loading screen cinematic music can be quite harsh on the ears. It is exceptionally loud (more of a pet-peeve rather than a crucial in game flaw). The responsiveness of Barbie on some of the mini games, especially ones where a bit more precision is required such as MAKE-UP MADNESS, can be a bit janky at times; robbing the player of an opportunity to truly crush the other girls in competition (all in good fun of course). In addition to the occasionally wobbly controls, interference from the other girls can become a problem in some of the mini games, namely in ones that require you to perform activities in which any interference renders the game much more difficult, such as in BUBBLE CRAZE (Let it be known however that the interference from the other ladies might not be all that bad of a thing. In certain games, the intrusion of space by the cpu many times simply adds to the fun of the mini-game by adding a level of difficulty which would not exist otherwise. Take this into consideration whilst you continue to read this review, and in regards to your purchasing of this game). By interference, I mean simply that at times, if your are walking in a certain path, if one of the other girls walks by or in front of you, the game will block your movement as if they truly are walking in front of you. This seems like a solid game component. Perhaps one that would add a touch of realism; but, while that may be the case, it causes an unprecedented amount of difficulty in completing certain tasks throughout the game.




-In synopsis, Barbie™ Dreamhouse Party™ has both its pros and cons and they are are follows:




Pros- Simple, yet fun, gameplay
Visually appealing
Child friendly
Great soundtrack



Cons- Occasionally janky controls
CPU interference
Lack of an incredible amount of replay value


(Please note that I am aware that I stated earlier that the game has replay value; and, in fact, it does. But it is rather lackluster to be entirely honest. It mostly consists of doing the same mundane tasks over and over. Which of course might be great for a child, or someone that truly enjoys collecting things for the mere sake of collecting things; but I do realize that for a lot of gamers, there needs to be a degree of difficulty regarding the collection of in-game items. In other words, there is a bit to collect, but there is little to no challenge behind it. In addition to this, I believe that many players will find that collecting items in this game doesn't give the player a very rewarding feeling. It simply feels like going through the motions so that you can move onward with the game. Only issue here is that there is nothing to move on to, the game ceases once you collect everything, and you're left with a minimal amount of mini-games to choose from. The replay value of this game may be scaled on either the pro side, or the con side; I, however, will place it on the con, even though I in fact did mention it when speaking about the pros of the game).






Barbie™ Dreamhouse Party™ is a game encompassed around three things: Item collection, Character customization and Mini-games. If you are the type of gamer who can appreciate casual, straightforward game play, then this game is for you. There's a few things to collect, but not very much to play after you put in a few hours. I'd say that if you are willing to accept the game as it is, an incredibly simple, short, collection and mini-game based experience, then you might enjoy this game. However, I do caution you, if you are looking for a game with a colossal amount of content to satisfy you, you will be incredibly dissapointed. Overall, even with it's flaws, I give Barbie™ Dreamhouse Party™ an "8 out of 10" simply because the game appealed to me. And even though I was done with it in about 2 hours, I truly did enjoy myself during that time and continue to play it from time to time. I urge you to consider whether the price is worth the amount of content that you'll be getting. $20.00 is most definitely a steep price for this game; but, if you are purchasing it for the "luls," or just to kill a few hours, it just might be worth it for you.

Absolutely spectacular game. Stolen over 100 hours of my life, and counting! If you enjoy watching little girls in skirts run about a dreamhouse looking for shoes this is most certainly the game for you.
Would recommend 9/11
