The Mario Party 8 video game may be the 10th in the entire series, but it is the first one to be developed for the Wii gaming console of Nintendo. It belongs to the party series and was developed by Hudson Soft.

The game Mario Party 8 can be played either in single-player mode or in multi-player mode. Anyone who has been playing Nintendo games a lot probably is well acquainted with most if not all of the characters that appear in Mario Party 8, such as Yoshi, Princess Peach, Bowser, Donkey Kong, Princess Daisy, and of course the plumber brothers and Nintendo mainstays Mario and Luigi, who had appeared in the previous Mario Party theme video games. The player needs to unlock certain characters to continue in the game, having a total of 14 appearing in this particular Wii-format video game. Some of the characters have double roles to play, therefore may be expected to appear more frequently than others.

Review Summary

Mario Party 8 is a board game. The game features a carnival theme. A Party Tent houses the main board game modes, with each of them having slightly different rules. The carnival also includes the Star Battle Arena, which is a single player game similar to the normal party game; a Mini-game Tent, where unlocked mini-games can be played; an Extras Zone; and a Fun Bazaar, where players are able to see their records and redeem their point cards. However most of the game cannot be controlled by only the Wii Remote. Players take turns hitting a die to go through the game board. Into the game you’ll get bonuses, activate traps, or even change the construction of the game board itself. The main focus is to collect as many stars as possible before the end of the game. Mario Party 8 can be played by both single players and multiple players. All the players keep in a brief mini-game, which can be played by 4 players, each playing for himself, or 3 against 1 or 2 versus 2 players. The color of the space that each player is positioned on determines the set the mini-game is selected from. Mario Party 8 consists of dozens of mini-games. When you start a mini-game, screens with text and animations explain the rules and controls of the game. Mario Party 8 lures players to keep on playing by providing a large array of unlockable items and features, obtained by redeeming point cards.
