Summary: My best friend and I are old school gamers I would say. We don't own anything newer than the gamecube and we love Mario. We play Mario Party 5 at least once a day. It's crazy how different the 4th and 5th are. Same concept, just completely different boards and games and players and everything! It's great.
Summary: Mario Party is just like the previous games full of fun mini games and other features. In this game you can build your own fighting machine in super duel mode and battle other mario party characters. The mini games on this game are the best out of the other mario parties. The only down side of this game is you cannot buy items in party mode, instead you get capsules that are random that you can use but the game is still fun.
Summary: Mario Party 5's story line is kind of... well.. p00p. However, Thats not what we play for right? We play for competition, we play for stars and coins. So yeah, it keeps the classic MP gameplay. The maps are ok, just ok. The minigames are the best, ever and forever. I find myself coming back to play this classic game. Not only does MP 5 have the standard MP stuff, it has like, 5000x that. It has a mode were YOU BUILD A 'TANK' to fight others (2 player per game).
Summary: Don't listen to the people who put 2 stars and under. This game is one of the best Mario parties they made. The mini-games are fun and the boards are amazing. The only downfall is Donkey Kong is no longer a playable character, however You can unlock him in destruction derby mode (purple star). This game is 10 times better than Mario parties 6,7 and 8. I recommend that you buy this game before you buy any other Mario party game.
Summary: in my opinion this party is hands down the best mario party in the series, right in front of mario party 3, i loved the changes in night and day and how i could play as baby bowser/bowser junior (i forgot his name sorry guise) and i liked all of the minigames too they were very fun and this game i spent the best of my mario party times on!
Summary: mario party 5 is so cool.you can play as mario,luigi,peach,daisy,wario,waluigi,yoshi. and the new playable characters...Toad,BOO,and Koopa kid! but a character is removed from the mix donkey kong is no longer a playable character but i don't know about mario party 9.the boards are toy dream,undersea dream,sweet dream,pirate dream,future dream,rainbow dream and bowser's nightmare.there is a new type of item in mario party 5,they are called capsules.this game is the best...
Summary: This Game is a mixture of fun and excitement. It has everything. I love the story and the courses. Also I love the mini games ( Especially Goomba Hotel). Great Game Nintendo. Keep up the good work.
