Mario Party 9 (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
15 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, reunions, graduations, or just for fun - all great reasons to have a party. However, in the Mushroom Kingdom the only reason you need to throw a shin-dig is because Mario said ‘Let’s-a-go!’. As with any series that's been around long enough to reach its ninth mainline entry, you would expect a degree of innovation and key differences between games; something to keep players excited and wanting to come back for more.

  • Summary: Though an enjoyable addition to the series, Mario Party 9 is much too familiar and predictable.
  • Pros: Fun multiplayer action, Wide variety of minigames, Cheerful, colorful visuals
  • Cons: Little lasting appeal, Far too much emphasis on chance, Solo mode is tedious and required for unlocks, It's all too familiar

Mario Party 9

Digital Chumps

  • Conclusion: Excluding Wii Party, Mario Party 9 is the first we’ve seen in nearly five years of what was historically a perennial series. This break in the action has provided an opportunity for reinvention, and to some extent, that’s what’s occurred. What it all boils down to is a clever, unexpected, and much-needed reboot of a series that previously didn’t seem to have much left in the way of creativity.

Mario Party 9 Review: A Small Step Towards Positive Change

Game Informer
9 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Board game mechanics, with intermittent minigames return. It’s Mario Party with a new number at the end Graphics: The Wii is capable of much better, but it’s not offensive. Nintendo’s bright color palette is on full display Sound: Every now and then, a short snippet of classic Nintendo music will play, but mostly it’s just a series of cheery forgettable trumpets and incomprehensible grunts and cries from the characters Playability: The minigames control well,...

Expert Review

  • Summary: Die Präsentation von Mario Party 9 ist im typisch fröhlichen, bunten Mario-Stil gehalten. Ob nun die unaufhörlich dahin dudelnde Musik oder knuffig herum wabernde, glubschäugige Gumbas und Koopas, alles ist genau so, wie man es erwarten würde. Nett ist, dass im Einzelspieler-Modus für jede Spielrunde eine kleine Einleitung mit Bowser und Bowser Junior geboten ist.
  • Pros: + aktive Minispiele, geringer Glücksfaktor + größere spielerische Neuerungen + klare, saubere Grafik + Einzelspieler-Modus ein klein wenig aufbereitet
  • Cons: - zuviele Hüpf-Minispiele - für Einzelspieler trotz allem langweilig - wieder kein Online-Multiplayer - noch simpler als frühere Mario Partys - Zu geringe spielerische Unterschiede zwischen Spielbrettern

Mario Party 9

  • Excerpt: В славные времена GameCube сериал Mario Party радовал нас новой частью каждый год. На Wii ситуация изменилась: после крайне неудачного восьмого выпуска следующий пришлось ждать целых пять лет. А когда Mario Party 9 все-таки вышла, то перевернула все с ног на голову. Он выкинет на кубике ровно столько, чтобы собрать по пути все звездочки, а затем перед передачей хода вам остановится прямо перед какой-нибудь ловушкой (а они тут зачастую лишают аж половины накопленных...
