  • Excerpt: It's time to play mini games with Nintendo's Mario Party Advance so you toss it into your GBA and fire it up when, suddenly, Bowser shows up and scatters all the cool mini games. What a jerk! Mario , Luigi , Peach and Yoshi need you to help them defeat Bowser and his koopa goons at dozens of mini games to unlock all the games and Gaddgets so you can play with 'em again! Our game review gives you the 411 on how hot this GBA game is.

  • Conclusion: "Squeezing the fun out of Mario Party Advance is a tough slog..." The most surprising aspect of Mario Party Advance (MPA) is that it has taken until now – six years after the N64 original – to appear on the GameBoy Advance. Connectivity was a big selling point of the GBA and the Mario Party franchise seems like a natural for being “connected.
  • Pros: - Some good mini-games, - Lots of multiplayer options
  • Cons: - Single-player game is yawn-inducing, - Uninteresting game boards, - Extremely limited number of available rolls

  • Excerpt: Though Mario Party games on GameCube are ultimately shallow, superfluous and powered exclusively by fluff, the formula works exceedingly well on Game Boy Advance.

  • Conclusion: While this miniature shindig has lost the three dimensional graphics we've come to know from Mario Party, the cartoony visuals are nothing short of fantastic for the Gameboy Advance. The mini-game and board environments are so lavishly painted in such a vast array of candy-colors that one can only wonder if Nintendo was holding some sort of internal "who can create the most startlingly intense area!" contest while developing the game.

  • Excerpt: Sadly this game is not a compliment to the whole Mario Party franchise, in fact it’s a little bit of an insult. When I first heard of this game I thought for certain it was a classic Mario Party game set back when the original came out, and the party began. Too bad I was wrong, for this isn’t what I was thinking about.

  • Conclusion: Das Gameplay ist intuitiv und äußerst leicht zu erlernen. Vor Minispielen wird man in einem Infoscreen stets über die in einem Minispiel relevante Steuerung informiert, das Gameplay auf der Oberwelt bleibt immer dasselbe. Alles in allem kann man dem Spiel unter diesem Gesichtspunkt nichts ankreiden. Die Steuerung ist zu jedem Zeitpunkt simpel und überschaubar, was die grafisch angedeutete Ausrichtung auf jüngere Spieler untermauert.

  • Summary: Klempner sind keine langweiligen Per-sönlichkeiten. Vor allem was die Freizeit-gestaltung betrifft, sind sie äußerst kreativ. Den Beweis dafür bringt "Mario Party Advance" für den GBA. Nachdem der böse, böse Bowser alle Minispiele und „Giddings“ in Partyland verstreut hat, macht man sich entweder als der berühmteste Klempner der Spielgeschichte, Mario, seinem grünen Bruder Luigi, Prinzessin Peach oder dem Dinosaurier Yoshi auf, sie wieder einzusammeln.
