Summary: Always enjoyed Mario Party, and while I'm usually not against changes in games to keep things fresh, and that Mario Party has always been partially random, this one takes it too far. Too much of the game is based on the dice, very little is based on skill, even in mini games.
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.
Summary: My sisters and I love Mario Party, especially 8, but we were tired of playing the same boards over and over again. So when we received this game as a Christmas gift we were pretty excited... unfortunately this game is just plain boring.
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.
