In staying true to Mario Party tradition, the game is rigged. Even when set on easy, the computer people still get the upper hand on the board by getting higher dice rolls and somehow always landing on the best spaces.
If you're not a Mario Party fan or you don't have any friends to play with, I recommend not bothering with this game.
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...
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.
