Weak

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.

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.

When you can have your girlfriend, her parents, and little sisters into video games... Than well what more do you need! lol

Graphics= Obviously you don't own the Wii for graphics but seriously they could have been better.. but since this is Mario Party it can get away with it.

Gameplay= just plain fun. Just understand this game is a party game hence the title.. Single player will get boring in a week.

Sound= cheesy but come on what do you expect.

Nintendo Party Machine oops I mean the Wii has done it again. Great fun game for 2-4 players not for single player enjoyment. Now if only we can get games with more substance...
