Horrible

Why Nintendo?

I was so excited to have bought a copy of this title brand new. I had set up a small get together for my friends to play this game and bring back memories of frustrating mini games of n64's yesteryear. However, the rules have not evolved--but changed. Everyone moves together when you roll the die. No such thing as coins--just mini-star and "ztars" (stars that have a negative value when added to your collection of stars). The mini games were not as fun and mostly rely on chance than skill. I was so disappointed. Do yourself a favor and purchase an n64 and get you a copy of Mario Party 3.

I like the older mario party games better. They changed the gameplay of this title so that everybody travels around together and you have to land on a mini game tile to even play a mini game. The mini games are fun, but they are so few and far in between that it ruins the point of Mario Party. Bummer.

I like the single person movement instead of us all being in a car. Kinda makes it less fun. :( I was super excited to play it and now I cant wait to send it back
