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.
