Very disappointed in this one...

  • 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. I feel that a lot of the competitiveness and strategy has been removed from the game. All of the players travel around the board together (and the boards are pretty linear for the most part) and candy has been removed from the game.

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.

doesn't live up to the hype

  • Summary: I was so looking forward to this game I pre-ordered it, but after playing it I wished I had rented it first. It doesn't even deserve to be in the same class of games as Mario Party 8. I never played any of the earlier Mario Party games for N64 and Gamecube, but if this one was supposed to be a throwback to them I'm glad I never did.

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.
