Bad

Will return after the first day and rent 8 again.

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.

If you like Mario Party...then this is the game for you. the only downside is that it can be a little more drawn out that the other games, with mini games few and far between.

This entry into the Mario Party series is I think the most innovative! They have redone the standard formula and made it more cooperative focused which is fun and the games run a little faster than they used to with some really fun mini games thrown in.

My girlfriend and I have played all the unlocked maps and a lot of the mini games. The boards are really cool and the gameplay is altered with all players moving as one instead of independent.

Boss battles are thrown in now which is very cool, they are fun and simple.

But still the game is pretty short and the winner is really a lot of luck! But it is fun with friends! I really love Mario Party!
