Hands on with NASCAR Kart Racing, MySims Party, and 3 on 3 NHL Arcade

MySims Party consists of 50 mini games ranging from a quiz show, to a snowboard mini game, to a game where you even have to run away from a robot assault. Even though it consists of very simplistic gameplay, we have had a lot of fun playing MySims Party. It’s the type of game that anyone can jump in to and right away begin to enjoy themselves. Like NASCAR Kart Racing, even though the MySims characters are adorable and these games are likely to appeal to kids – adults are sure to enjoy it as well for casual gaming – and as its name suggests, it really does make a great potential party game. The game will become available for the WIi and DS on March 10th.

NASCAR Kart Racing is kind of like the little brother of NASCAR SimRacing. But being the “little brother” means it’s not difficult to use and only requires a bit of skill. And in this case, it’s a good thing. The game takes players through treacherous landscapes where they get to jump rivers, dodge falling boulders and wind around rocky cliffs. NASCAR Kart racing is also the first and only NSCAR racing title for the Wii. The game lets you use the Wii steering Wheel while racing.¬† Playing with the Wii Wheel, adds an extra layer of dimension to the driving experience. This is the kind of game that kids are likely to love, but anyone looking to unwind and have some fun without much thinking will appreciate MySims Kart as well. Up to 4 players can race against each other at a time via a split screen. The game is available now.

3 on 3 NHL Arcade¬† just became available this week to download on Xbox Live and PSN on the PS3. The arcade hockey game is a fun distraction which no rules and lots of big heads. Don’t really know much about hockey? That’s ok. 3 on 3 NHL Arcade doesn’t have rules, it’s designed for casual hockey players as well as serious ones to get in to the game immediately. There are no restrictions, penalties or stoppages to the gameplay. It’s all about shrinking your opponent’s goalie or giving yourself quick shots in between grabbing power-ups on the ice. The game costs $9.99.
