Still a good kids' party game, now Wii fun!

Common Sense Media
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a typical tame Nintendo title. Players are pitted against each other, but any violence is cartoonish -- at worst, expect to see characters being squashed or falling off a ledge. On the positive side, while playing on the Tycoon Town game board, characters will stop and look both ways before crossing the road.

Mario Party 8

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Princess Daisy, Wario, Donkey Kong, Yoshi, and plethora of Mushroom Kingdom favorites (and not so favorites) are back in Mario Party 8. This is the first Mario Party on the Nintendo Wii, and it has been tweaked for the system quite nicely. Mini games, party games, and the star searching on different boards is all present and accounted for. Four players can play at the same time for some real together time.

  • Conclusion: In the end, Spore delivers exactly what it set out to do. Due to its very nature, there will be some people who are not completely happy with the game. Perhaps something they liked didn’t get enough attention or something wasn’t fleshed out as much as they would have wished. When you get down to it, we are all like that as gamers.

Mario Party 8 (Wii) Review

Mario Party 8 Review

1 May 2008
  • Excerpt: During my school days I used to be a bit of a Nintendo fanboy. I think we all did it at one point; pick a side and stick with it, at least until you had enough money to branch out from owning a single console. Given my Nintendo fanboy status during the Nintendo 64 era I obviously bought Mario Party and played with my Nintendo fanboy brother and friends. While I have memories of having a good time, looking back it all seemed a little forced.

Nintendo Wii (Fall 2008)

PC Magazine
30 April 2008
  • Conclusion: While it's relatively inexpensive and perhaps even more innovative than competing consoles, the Nintendo Wii is best for families with small children, or those who like to game in groups. For everyone else, be an adult and get an adult console.
  • Pros: Easy to use and understand. Innovative gameplay. Great for families, large groups, and non-gamers. Requires more physical activity than typical video gaming.
  • Cons: Poor graphics, especially on large-screen HDTVs. Controller style can be irritating, depending on the game. Doesn't play DVDs.
