At first, when I heard I had to review a game called House Party I had my fingers crossed it was something based on the 90s comedy with Kid n Play! Well while I was way off on that one, I did get one thing right. That is what this game is supposed to have the same kind of raunchy comedy that 90s gross-out comedies were known for.
Let's Have A House Party!
The story of the game is that Madison is throwing a house party and all the cool dudes and chicks are invited which includes you. You play a meathead kind of dude who only has one goal and that goal is to get laid! Hey you cannot blame a guy for trying and I get the feeling that they were going to a more sex-obsessed kind of Sims game here.
That is basically all there is to the story. There are a ton of characters to interact with ranging from wild and slutty chicks to uptight dudes who freak out if people are drinking and having a good time. It is a bunch of clichés from 90s style high school movies, but to be fair that is kind of the point.
How Do You Party?
Well, you re probably wondering what is the point of House Party and what exactly do you have to do. Well the game has a lot of dialogue and most of what you have to do is done through this. There are branching paths and depending on what you say will result in a different outcome. These are some of the most insufferable and dumb people you will ever talk to, but that is kind of the charm here.
You will also have to do some fetch quests, solve very easy puzzles and even get naked on occasion. Of course, you can just mill around the house, chatting up girls and looking around if that is your thing too. Overall the game feels like a much less involved version of The Sims…. But with a very horndog kind of coating of paint.
As you would expect with a game like this the boob physics are pretty on point. The overall presentation is something that gets a lot of flack in this game. In all honesty, while I do not think it is going to win any awards. Some of the girls are nice enough to look at and the fact that many of them are willing to strut around in a thong is not the worst thing in the world.
Overall, I would say that House Party is a very weird kind of game. I really cannot decide if the game actually thinks that it is edgy and crossing the line. Or if it knows exactly what it is doing and is very self-aware of how full of clichés it is! I am sure some people will find the quest for booty addictive so it could be worth checking out if that sounds like your kind of game.
