A couple years ago Nintendo released Mario vs DK on the Gameboy Advance. Now round 2 march of the minis has been unleashed on the DS.

This game is a very fun and addicting action puzzler. The graphics are great the gameplay is fine. There is really nothing to dislike about this game.
Many will find themselves a little bit dissapointed with this game because they are expecting an adventure game like New Super Mario Bros. If that is what your looking for you won't find it here.

If you are familiar with the orginal Mario vs DK and enjoyed that, you will be very satisified.

If your looking for an all out good time wether you wanna spend 5 minutes or 2 hours. You should find yourself happy with this.

This game was fun at first but quickly losy my attention. Also the way the game was controled was not easy, to stop the minis you had to rapidly tap every one before they touched each other. Also the game was very boring to put it literaly. It just doent keep your attention. This is what I thought of this game, But still try Mario Partys their fun!!

Cute--but extremely short and quick

Anything with "Mario" in the title of a video game is bound to be cute, clean, and polished. No worries here, then; you're getting a tight game that manages to be mostly puzzle with just enough arcade to keep your reflexes sharp.

But it's SHORT--without trying very hard, I had completed it in a day and a half. If you have any basic puzzle skills, there's no real challenge here. The unlockables were not so great that I needed gold stars on every level--in fact, I usually got silver stars without even trying (that doesn't speak to my skill but the game's ease, in my opinion).

Unlocking construction sets to build your own levels is nice--but only if you care to do that, of course, and I personally would rather PLAY it than make it.

So it's a good, but merely good game. Here's the good news for Gamefly players, though; its short fun is PERFECT for renting. This is why we subscribe, ladies and gentlemen, and so definitely check it out and save your hard-earned money.
