Summary: Since its not made by the old makers, they tried to make a new experience. I thought it was cool how they tried to incorporate boss battles, but the turn system is awful. You can't choose the number of turns because there is a board with a set boss. This itself isn't that bad but the minigames and "ministars" get tedious to do and collect, and it doesn't leave with the same feeling that Mario Party 8, and back does.
Summary: It is the perfect family game. My husband and I can play with our 5 years old and 8 years old no problem. Many hours of laughter and great time. The kids play on their own and can still manage to have a great time, as well as the parents when the kids are in bed! Haha.
Summary: Mario Party 8 is addicting game wife and I would play partners that is until we had not one but two wii systems and games stolen by people we know some friends huh well I received another wii for fathers day last year and was given Mario party 9 which just came out only thing is its not as fun as party 8 will be buying it soon
