Completely changed from the awesome game it was in the first 8 versions.

  • Summary: The got rid of coins. Only stars. You do not battle as often. Best part of old game was mini-games. They are now not the main focus of this version. Game boards are not circular.

Well, not as good as Mario Party 8, and that is sad. :(

  • Summary: Ok, where to start..... So this is not Mario Party 8 for the Wii. Small things have taken over this game. First of all they have taken away the flick of a wrist to hit the dice block. Secondly you are all riding in a car and not running around individually. So no more challenges by landing on blocks with each other. The game play is ok but as a long time Mario Party player (seriously, I'm 38 so I've played them all) the game feels rushed.

OK game.

  • Summary: If you have little kids who aren't competitive, this is a great game. If you are maybe an older kid, don't buy this. I love the MP series, but seriously no matter what you do, the whole game is chance based.

Any N64 Mario Party is better

  • Summary: The game is ok, but I'm a really competitive person and I always win most of the mini-games, but in this game that doesn't assure you the final win in the overall game.

I prefer Mario Party 8

  • Summary: This game eliminates a lot of the skill base that was required in MP8. So much of this game relies on pure luck that it gets frustrating for my friends and I who loved to test our skills in the previous version. I also am not a fan of the "travel together" system. Overall, my rating is based on my strong preference for MP8. The pros to this one are the changes in scenery and the hope that the Mario Party series will live on.

Dumbed down reboot

GrimBeaver, Amazon
26 March 2012
  • Summary: Having played every previous Mario Party this is a disappointment. This is a dumbed down reboot with very little strategy involved. A lot of this game comes down to luck of the dice roll. There's no more coins period. Many (if not most) of the concepts from the old games are completely gone. The boards which the car rides on are largely linear with stars periodically along the path which go to the current player when they are passed.

  • Summary: I was very happy with Mario party8, first one I ever played. So, so, so fun! Well I got married to a gamer (3 years ago) and he has played almost every Nintendo game there is (sadly I’m not exaggerating) and when I told him #9 was on it’s way he quickly raced to the Nintendo wii store and bought Mario Party2. We have been using the classic controllers and playing that one for the past couple of weeks. I am pretty hooked on #2 I really like it.

Disappointing

lfc90, amazon.co.uk
28 December 2012
  • Summary: I have always loved the Mario party games and so I bought Mario 9 assuming it would be the best as it's the most recent. However, it is nothing like the older Mario Party games in the way that everyone is in one car, going around the board together. This makes it hardly competitive at all and as well as this you hardly get to play any mini-games, the way stars are given out and taken away is extremely arbitrary and it is overall a very short, dull game.
