fun but gets old fast...

Mario Party has been one of the greatest series that Nintendo has released for its consoles. Unfortunately (for me) this edition does not live up to the hype of bringing the series to the Wii. I'm not saying this game is completely boring and unoriginal. It keeps you entertained for about 2-3 times you play through it. The motion sensing based minigames get old quick and too repetitive. There isn't much you do with the wiimote to make it intuitive. This game's worth checking out, but not a keeper.

Fun game ... No Widescreen !!

OK, Its a Mario Party game and its a good fun game (especially with more than 2 players).

But NO WIDESCREEN SUPPORT! Instead they put bright static crosshatch images along the sides of your widescreen TV. So if you have a plasma TV and play a long game (which is common), what do you get ??

That's right !!! A nice BURNT IN image of their vertical bars. They couldn't even include a moving image or some way to avoid burn-in. What were they thinking. Don't buy or rent if you have a plasma wide-screen TV !!!!

How can people enjoy this game?

The faked widescreen support, the obvious Gamecube port production, the clunky controls, and extremely torturizing single player gameplay. I ask you, HOW can you enjoy this?! I dropped it back in the mailbox 25 minutes after I put it in.
