The game, like most Wii games, is fun only when you play against your friends or family. Some minigames can seem too simple and felt as though many of them were just thrown out of the hat in desperation. only six boards and very little variations became boring. This might be your game if you intend to play with friends on the weekends. playing solo and/or consistantly...not really worth the buy

Mario party is Mario party. Simply put. If you missed the other seven, then this may actually feel fresh to you. for others that played even one before, it's simply the same game element with new, wii specific minigames. The new games are moderate. Nothing feels fresh nor sets the game apart. The single player element is here again, as well as several different party elements. Games go slow as you wait for each player to hit the die and move. Also, the game does not run in widescreen, and if you try, the game cheats by putting a border on the sides to fill in the gaps. A decent party game, but too slow and nothing special. Also, to play with four, you'll need wii motes for all.
