I bought the Xbox version of this game for my son for Christmas,then saw some poor reviews but kept it anyway. Am I glad that I did!!! It has been a great hit for the family. Even if you aren't the one playing it you can't help but get involved in the story line. When one player runs out of ideas on how to get through some of the challenges - in our household - someone else will step in and give it a try (you know, teamwork). We played it a lot on New Year's Eve and almost missed watching the ball drop..
