I think the use of the Wii mote was great! Loved the mini games. But some of the boards were boring. All you did was walk a straight road on some of them. The best board was the banking one! Other than some being boring, just like the other Mario Parties from the past!
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
