IGN is crazy

IGN gets it right most of the time but what were they thinking here? They must of sat in a corner and played single-player with the COM difficulty at Easy or something because I have to say... the game is Awesome. It is basically the same formula but one that still works great, and with enough new additions that make it very worthy, especially with the use of the wii-mote.

- I assure you, if you have a couple friends and pop this game in, you will not be disappointed. I am once again addicted to a game thanks to Mario & company...

Great idea with no follow through.

The game is simple, but you need to spend countless hours playing the board game format of the game to get access to the fun mini games.
By the time you get access to all the mini games you are so frustrated with the game you don't want to play it anymore.
Being one of my favorite game series I am very disappointed.
Great use of the Wii controller, but bad game.

Mario Party 8

After trying to figure out how to add more than one player unsuccessfully and 45 minutes later we gave up. So we played the one player. I found this game to be repetitive, not always fair. It seems like the computer does better than anyone else no matter what. We still have not gotten to add but the one remote. The games are very similar to the last versions of the game. The graphics are good. Could someone please let me know how to play more than one player. It would probably make this game more fun for my 4 children.
