Conclusion: Story Mode is like Party Mode but it’s a completely single-player experience, and the board spaces are altered a bit. It’s you against Bowser… snore! Mario Party has never been known for it’s compelling narratives.
Conclusion: If replay value if something you’re looking for, Mario Party 5 will definitely have you coming back for more of its mini-games, but not much else. Mini games are by far the strongest feature in this title and are the only reason any gamer would even think of coming back to Mario Party 5 .
