Mario Party 5

Super Mario 128 Central
9 January 2005
  • Summary: This game might be fun for a while with other people, but it is probably not worth owning unless you collect Mario games. Other than the new mini-games and boards, this game will be more of the same. Due to a lack of innovation, this game does not deserve as high of a score as its predecessors.

Mario Party 5

Nintendo World Report

  • Summary: Mario Party 5 is the best in the series, but not by enough to warrant its creation.
  • Pros: Better-than-average Mario Party music, Boards finally in 3-D, Capsule Item & Event system, Creative, competitive mini-games
  • Cons: No custom mini-game list!, Not radically different from the first four games, Only fun with 3-4 people, Sometimes sloppy controls, Still-crummy AI

  • Excerpt: The N64 was home to the first version of Mario Party a while back. This was a fun game with addicting mini games people wanted to play. The N64 saw two more Mario Party games, and after that came the GameCube. The little purple box saw Mario Party 4, but it was old and tiresome; it had too much of the same old thing. Can Mario Party 5 bounce back and revive the series?

  • 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. The Mini-Game mode lets you take on mini-games you’ve conquered in the Story and Party modes. The mini-games themselves are of the usual twitch, timing and teamwork variety, with simple controls and a frenetic pace.

  • Excerpt: I definitely played my share of Mario titles during my life. It all started with Super Mario for the Gameboy, since only later in my life was I introduced to the classic Arcade Game itself. Other titles followed, more titles for the Gameboy including Super Mario 2, one of my all time favourites I still play these days, the various Mario titles for NES and SNES and recently we have seen Super Mario Sunshine being released on the Gamecube.

  • 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 . Almost all of the mini games offered in Mario Party 5 never seem to lose their appeal and will have you rushing back for more, just to get a taste of your favorites again.
