Description official descriptions

Mario and his friends need a break from fighting evil and saving the world; so they decided to go on a cruise! But Bowser showed up and is wrecking the good times; the only thing left to do is play a game of Mario Party!

This is the seventh entry in the Mario Party Series and features similar gameplay. The game features a combination of a board game and mini games. The goal is to collect as many stars as possible as you make your way around the game board; after each turn, players compete in one of 86 mini games. The winner of the mini game earns coins which can be used to purchase the stars. Mini games can be played with players in teams, or every player for them self. In addition to the regular spaces, the game board also features several other types of spaces; some will begin a Bowser mini game, provide hidden bonuses, or allow you to purchase orbs to help slow down your opponents. Most of the mini games are played with the GameCube controller, and also included in the package is a microphone which is used for several voice activated mini games.

The usual single player and multi player game modes are included. New in this release is the ability for up to eight players to compete! In the eight player game variation two players will need to share each of the controllers, each player controlling one of the analog sticks and a trigger.

Let's freaking party!

The Good
This is an extremely fun game for the Cube. There are somewhere close to 100 games or so, each different with special rules and button combinations, which makes each game interesting and unique. Hours of button-smashing, friend-beating hell fest of fury and limbs flying. A boat-load of game styles and six different maps to play, with specific rules and requirements to beat the level.

A nice array of characters to use with adjustable difficulties and options of teams. The variety of unlockables really helps sweeten the deal. This version also holds a special place in my heart for the Microphone Games! You use the microphone to steer a car or call someone's name to summon them. So many cool games and levels, and the visuals are really, really nice.

The Bad
Well, this game should be on the PC, to allow multiplayer function and I'd actually like to create my own Mario-esque character. That'd be one hell of a function. Also, the story is pretty darn weak, even though it's not needed. They didn't need to give a story, but by adding a small one, it only made it worse.

The Bottom Line
Don't rock the boat, play some kickass mini-games on it. This game will keep you playing for hours on end, but is relatively short-feeling unless you're trying to unlock every possible thing. Definite buy for any Mario fan.
