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.
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.
