  • Conclusion: Below Average: Has some high points, but they soon give way to glaring faults. Not the worst games, but are difficult to recommend.

Mario Party: Island Tour (3DS) - Review

VGChartz
25 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Annualization became a major subject of debate with the likes of Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed , but years before these two series got big, Nintendo was releasing a new Mario Party almost every single year during the Nintendo 64 and GameCube generations. The board game mayhem, minigame madness and star collecting was a local multiplayer superstar and sometimes a friendship killer. But since the Wii era, the Mario Party series hasn't seen many releases.

Mario Party: Island Tour Review: Family bored game night

GameZone
25 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Many nights were spent in my household squabbling over Mario Party minigame losses and “cheating.” Shy Guys switched colored flags after I had mimicked them perfectly. The Deep Bloober Sea was dark and inviting, and we always had time for a rematch. The days of the Nintendo 64 bashes were wondrous times, but Mario Party quickly began to stagnate. Changes happened. The GameCube and Wii installments languished.

Mario Party: Island Tour

Digital Chumps
22 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Mario Party is continuing to see sequels and unfortunately it isn't seeing much change. In its 3rd portable experience, Island Tour, I had hoped for more enjoyable single player and internet multiplayer to keep players interested when they can't get their friends around. Unfortunately, the bread-and-butter experience of 4 players is easier to implement and more enjoyable on console experiences.

Don't Board This Snooze Cruise

Game Informer
22 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: Take the long-running multiplayer series on the road again Graphics: It’s a bunch of Mario characters running around colorful game boards Sound: These simple tunes are as memorable as the braindead minigames Playability: Most minigames don’t require more than the analog stick and one button Entertainment: Good luck finding three friends that will waste their time with this Replay: Low

Mario Party: Island Tour

IGN
22 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Mario Party: Island Tour’s single-player campaign is laughably bad, and the ambitious, content-rich multiplayer options and unique game boards are ultimately dragged down by mostly boring minigames and unfortunate system-jerking motion control. A group of friends might only have fleeting good times with this collection.
  • Pros: Download Play, Unique board rules
  • Cons: Poor single-player campaign, Uninventive minigames, Motion control
