Summary: If you loved Mario Party 8, you may not be a fan of Mario Party 9. They are night and day different games. If you are all about playing with friends and family in more of a group setting, then you will really love this game.
Summary: My 4 year old was obsessed with Mario Party 8, so we bought this for him last Christmas. It's not my favorite, but he enjoys it and it's a nice family game. I think 8 was better, but it's always good to have something different to play!
Summary: Bought this for my daughter (who will be 4 in Feb) because she loved playing Mario Party 8. Some of the mini games are a little tough for her to play. But this is a GREAT game for family game night.
Summary: The Good: Great graphics, fun board games, keeping people together makes things more challenging, a lot of fun and well made mini-games The Bad: Not enough board items, not enough boards or content, it would be nice to split players up some times, no online play I can't believe this series had gone...
Summary: I've played many Mario Parties. This is the first one I have played on the Wii. The largest difference has to be that everyone progresses through the game board at the same time. Every player takes a turn being the captain driving some sort a vehicle around the game board.
