Really Bad

Mario Party 9

Mario Party 9...well, to be honest, I thought 8 was better than 9. You can't move around the board as your own character. You're all in this little buggy that moves around the board and you all just take turns hitting the dice. Kind of lost it a bit there for me. And the setup with the stars just didn't quite seem the same. In here it's almost like, "hey stars are free if you land here". It's not like in the previous ones where you had to 'work' for the stars. Which you should have to, they are your 'reward'.
The mini games didn't really seem all that interesting either. Not that they are really that spectacular in the Party games, but, they could barely hold my interest. Halfway through the boards I was already done with it. I had a hard time making it through one board just keeping my attention. All-in-all, it's an ok game. A 2 out of 5.

I did not like this Mario Party at all. Too many changes. No minigames after every four rounds, all the players stayed together. I did however like the mini-boss and boss fights in the levels.

What was nintedo thinking gutting the whole game? no more coins only mini stars. everyone has to move together and no mini games at the end of a set of turns. none of the new mini games were anything special.
