Summary: I really liked this mario party because there are tons of different orbs and very detailed game boards. The minigames are fun, but the host is really annoying. The many different game modes are fun too. THIS GAME IS BEST WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS.
Summary: I really like this game a lot. It has my favorite mini-games out of the ones I've played so far which is Mario party 4,5, and 7. If your child likes video games, it's a great family game to play together. My son is 7 and he played it at age 5, but he catches on quickly to controllers and games. The graphics are pretty good, but its obvious after Mario party 7, graphics have gotten a lot better for the Mario series.
Summary: Mario Party 5 is an excellent Mario Party game, or even better, an overall amazing multiplayer party experience. The new features/gameplay elements add a ton of variety and unity, making the game feel fresh, but at the same time, a classic, as it doesn't stray away too much from the original concept. The game introduces 3 new playable characters such as Koopa Kid, Boo and Toad, which in my opinion, are great additions.
Summary: I like the fact that you don't have to buy the capsules. You pass the space and they give them to you. You only pay for them when you use them. Also you can decide to use them on yourself or lay them down for others to land on. It just a lot of fun. I don't like the fact that there are not many characters to choose from as there are in Mario Party 7. All around it is a great game to play together or alone and just have some fun.
Summary: for a game that is just full of mini games that can be from luck all the way up to can you press a button faster than the other people, this is a good fun game with tons and tons of mini games and of course the board game and a battle cars game. this is a maybe to buy if you have a gcube but if you like mario and are into mario party then this is the game for you.
Summary: first of all, i'm a college student, but my friends and I love playing mario party. i caution any serious gamers: the game is VERY juvenille, as would be expected. this, however, makes it a very good choice if you have more than a few friends who dont enjoy firstpersonshooters or other more mature games, as well as making it an awesome drinking game.
