Mario Party DS Review

Cheat Code Central
5 July 2008

It's fun minigame madness with friends on the go.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a party game in which cartoonish Nintendo characters engage in a diverse selection of competitive and cooperative minigames. While there is a little cartoon violence that is silly and amuzing, all of the games are completely free of bad language, sexuality, or negative behavioral messages.

Mario Party DS Review

  • Excerpt: It seems amazing to think that Mario Party DS has sold near half a million copies in Japan. Currently riding high in the Japanese charts, it seems our gaming cousins from the land of the rising sun can't get enough of the series, which has had so many sequels it puts Police Academy to shame. It's even more amazing when you consider how each new addition simply rehashes basic, uninspiring mini-games and a tired, age-old snakes-and-ladders game format.

  • Excerpt: A lot of friends chastise me for not getting into the Mario Party games sooner. Well I have recently got into them, and have found Mario Party DS to be a solid little party game that is missing one important feature - Wi-Fi. If there was ever a party game that screams for Wi-Fi then Mario Party DS is it. For those unfamiliar this Nintendo DS video game is like a board game with all kinds of different party games at the end of each turn.

Mario Party DS (DS)

  • Excerpt: When it comes down to it, Nintendo's Mario is a lot like Disney's Mickey Mouse. Much more than a videogame character, the ubiquitous plumber is a symbol that is recognized around the world, from dive bars to the sometimes hallowed halls of government. Like Mickey, he's cute, beloved and heroic, and most of all, he's an energetic character full of alacrity.

  • Excerpt: The long-running Nintendo party franchise comes to the DS Lite but just because the screens are smaller doesn't mean the action has to be! But be warned: you won't full mileage out of this game unless you have three friends around you at all times.
  • Pros: Mario Party has gone handheld! Take your party anywhere, any time.

  • Excerpt: The Mario Party series has finally hit the Nintendo DS. The franchise had been on a downhill slide in quality for a while. Mario Party 8 for the Nintendo Wii started a decent shift toward better gameplay, and thankfully the DS version does so as well. As far as board games go Mario Party is the brand of choice, and its DS installment could very well be one of the best of the series.

  • Excerpt: Name: Mario Party DS Genre: Party Game Platform: Nintendo DS I have a weird relationship with the Mario Party games. Nintendo usually strays from incremental upgrades to their major series, but Mario Party has always been the exception. While fun and usually fairly polished, Nintendo rarely takes risks with the franchise. Every year another Mario Party game comes out with more minigames and maps and it feels more like Nintendo is giving us expansion packs than sequels.
