As good as always


Mario Party has always been one of the best games around, an easy way to have fun. As a party game obviously playing with others is the best part of it, but it manages to be fun even against the computer. The 10th version doesn't have the charm of some of the earlier ones, but it still provides a good deal of enjoyment. If you own one of the older ones though, this one doesn't necessarily offer that much difference to make it worth a full price purchase. But for people who are big fans of the series, it lives up to those expectations. Donkey Kong is back, which is nice. For those who don't know, you go around a board against 3 other players, with various minigames along the way. While its fun I'd still rather play one of the first couple versions in the series. The new mode is Bowser Party, where a 5th player can control Bowser trying to defeat all four of the other players. Its nothing earth shattering, but a nice little extra mode to have.




Not what it used to be


I have been playing Mario Party games since the days of the Gamecube. I own just about every game that has came out under the Mario Party line. I would say the last game (Mario Party 9) was pretty lack luster, and Mario Party 10 puts the nail in the coffin. Do not get me wrong. This game features a lot of well thought out mini games, and they can be very fun and challenging. However the game as a whole does not feel like you have much control over how you win. The game often throws in "luck based" features, that can make the game seem extremely unfair at times. The game board that you play on is also very simplified and instead of racing around the board to gain more stars you move as a group. Overall the mini games are great as always, and your friends will have fun playing them. However the luck based factor of this game really leaves you not wanting to pick up this game again. I really hope Nintendo fixes these problems in their next installment.




Its a Party!


This is a really fun game that I purchased for my then 9-year old son. Quickly the game become one that even myself and my 13-year old enjoy playing quite frequently. In fact, my husband and I turn the Wii on when the kids are at school and have a bit of Mario fun ourselves. In the game Mario and his buddies are running from -who else - but Bowser. The game is really fun since you can do all kinds of silly things to Bowser as you try to get away -such as cause him to have horrible smelling breath! The game is in high def and the colors are vibrant and intense. It allows you to become very much involved with the play, with lots of movement, too. This is not my all-time favorite game but I do put it up there high on the list of favorites. This is a great game for the entire family... when your teen plays you know that it is fun!

Let's party for the tenth time


Mario is back for another party, but unfortunately nothing much has changed. This time the game series has reverted back to the car system. Personally, I hate this system due to it taking the players all across the board. I feel that the individuality in game-play is lost due to this. Not only that, but the mini-games seem to be extremely easy. While I think that it is good to cater to younger players, I feel that in order to make this for all ages, difficulty in the games should be added. Furthermore, the mini-games are nothing new and just seem to be washed up versions of older installments. Adding onto that, the old "screw you over" tactics are still in play. These are fun tactics, but sometimes I wish you could turn them off. Overall, I hope the next Mario Party game goes back to the old way; I also hope that they add in more mini-games that are more thought out.
