If you have small kids and like to game with them, MySims Party is definitely at least worth a try, since the games are cute and accessible, even on first play. There is a very low threshold for "mastering" any of the minigames, and many of them come down to how fast you can wildly wave around the Wiimotes (and how much endurance you have to do it!). For multiplayer, basically the younger the players, the more fun it'll be. I tried it with 3 adults, and it was pretty boring, but watching a bunch of little kids play was a hoot. One weird aspect of the game is that it is decidedly very Japanese in theme, and unabashedly so. There's sushi sorting, fish chopping, etc, which will come across as a bit oddball to anyone without a lot of exposure to Japanese culture, but that might be a plus to some people.
The typical Sims stats don't really play into the multiplayer as far as I could tell, but they have some marginal effect in the singleplayer. I did not personally go through much of the single player campaign, but my sister, upon playing it for a short time, immediately requested a copy of this for Christmas. So we returned our rental and purchased this for her. She has mostly beaten the campaign in the month she's had it.
Overall, adding depth to this game would have gone a long way into making it accessible for full families, but as it stands it CAN entertain smaller children. Your best bet is to rent before you buy. Had we purchased it for ourselves first, it would have gone into the unplayed-game-pile-of-doom long ago.
