DONT WASTE YOUR TIME!. Although I liked the amount of minigames in this mario party and there were some very memorable ones. The boss battles were fun with the exception of 3. Though this game fails because of the "chance" in this game. The single player rewards those who are lucky. They could care less if you were the best at minigames all that matters in the single player is how lucky you are with the dice roll. And it wouldnt be so bad if the chance in this game wasnt soooo biased against you . 80% of the time if there is chance or luck involved you will lose and the computer will win. No game should rely on chance this much. The whole time I was playing this I wanted to get it done so I could play something else.
I didn't think this game was anywhere near as good as the others. I don't like the fact that the players travel on the board together instead of individually, however the new minigames were a lot of fun. But the problem with that is the fact that the minigames are triggered by landing on designated spaces rather than playing a minigame after everyone takes a turn, which MINIMIZED the amount of minigames you get to play. I played through a whole level and only played about 5 minigames. Why you would want to do that is beyond me, being that the minigames are what made this game series so fun in the first place. We'll see what they do with the next mario party, but until then, this one was a fail in my opinion and 8 is much better.
