I got this game immediately after playing Nintendo Land and was hoping for more party game fun to share with my friends, but I was very let down.
The game mechanic is a stale one where you'll stop to play mini games only when you land on the appropriate square, otherwise you're just moving around the board. Mini games are 2 player only, never opening up to a 4 player melee.
The character animations are somewhat amusing, but create a good deal of lag and you have to go through a character creation process before every game.
If I had never played Mario Party or Nintendo Land I might find this game fun, but it's a pale comparison to existing party games.
A disappointing game overall. The game is Mario Party, with the following details
1) There is only one map
2) There are only 20-ish mini-games
3) All mini-games are only 1 vs 1
Mini-games, despite being the meat of the game, are only played when players land on special spaces, so there's a lot of time between mini games. You'll spend a lot of time watching animations (they're cute the first time, but they slow the game down a ton). The other panels you can land on either randomly reward/screw you (random event, slot machine, etc), or ask you inane questions like how fast ketchup comes out of a bottle in inches per year.
