Summary: Game is fun to play with a group of people. However, it does get quite boring after awhile. The computer is good at all the mini-games even when you play on "easy" so thats what makes it somewhat challenging. All in all, a great game to play with others, but nothing compared to other Mario games.
Excerpt: I have had this game for a few years and i still get my N64 out to play it whenever my mates come round, but i would never play it in 1 player. With buckets of new mini-games and a new Duel mode, you'd be forgiven for initially thinking this is an all-singing, all-dancing fresh experience.
Excerpt: Mario Party 3. What is with all the sequels? Can nobody think of an original idea? Well yes… play Mario party 3 and you will understand. Similar but different to the first and second Mario parties. It features Mario and his friends- and they want to have a party?
Excerpt: This is a review of the Japanese version of the game, as the English version has yet to come out. Before I start, let's go over the first 2 Mario Party games. The original one was revolutional, and spawned such titles as Crash Bash on Playstation, and Sonic Shuffle on Dreamcast.
Pros: Around 80 totally new mini - games !
Cons: Lacks in one - player mode, too much like its predecessors .
