Finally, Mario Party lands on the DS. Mario Party DS is different from any other of the Mario Party's. Mario Party DS has story mode!! Story mode is fun and creative. The minigames use three different controls, control pad and buttons, stylus, and the mic! Mario Party DS is a must buy.

Pros:
Easy controls
Fun
Story mode
The three different controls
Multiplayer

Cons:
No online :(

I've long been a Mario party fan, but I will always remain a critic. However, though I expected this to be a failure, it was actually just as fun as any of it's predecessors.

Sound: Just what you would expect from a Mario game. The sound has not diminished at all from what you expect of a Mario party installment.

Graphics: Amazing graphics for the ds. This game shows the true potential of the DS' graphics abilities. I was never disappointed by this area of the game.

Gameplay: Very well executed. There were plenty of mini-games, some of which use the stylus, others using the normal controls, and some using the mic, while others had combinations of all of those. Oh, and not to mention that there is a mode in which you can play puzzle games from past Mario party games as much as you like. This is just as good as any Mario party game ever was. Oh, and don't worry about any games being awkward because of the stylus. The game does not center around that, and the mini-games that do use the stylus use it in a very natural way. Not to mention you can choose whether or not to include stylus games, mic games, etc., in the random selection when setting up a game.

Story: Come on, does anyone play Mario Party for the story? You're out to collect 5 pieces of stuff and be the super star. Same as always, and you know that the lack of a story doesn't hurt it one bit.

Concept: Take the already wonderful Mario party series, throw in some new and innovative games, add every bit of fun that was ever in the series, and put it in a pocket-sized piece. There you go, nothing short of a masterpiece. Nothing was lost in the travel from console to handheld.

A Very Very Fun Game!!! My boyfriend and I both enjoy this game very much. It has great multiplayer with each player getting to enjoy the capability of their DS, with great minigames and a classic Nintendo feel. So high rated on my list, im buying it the first chance I get!
