On the contrary to someone who gave one star(ignore that guy altogether), I believe that this is a brilliant change from the classic-platform-known-to-everyone version of the game!
Especially the mini-games are fantastic!
I was watching my little nephew play this, when at some point I just couldn't resist and wanted a go as well! lolz!
Definately worth your money and time! You will love it!
5 stars from me!
I thought this game wouldn't be very good but got it anyway, and it is great!
The minigames are half stylus-based and half contol-based, alot of diversity!
The only thing it is quite easy but you can change the settings to hard if you want so thats good!
Good fun, haven't tried with 2player yet but i'm sure its great!
Better than mario party 8 on wii by a mile!
I played this on the Wii so thought i'd try it out and the DS and wasn't disappointed. You play on a board, rolling a dice each turn. After all the players have a turn you then get a minigame to play for extra coins. The winner at the end is the player with the most stars, which you buy when you pass them on the board. It is very addictive as to unlock everything you need to complete the story with all the characters (8) and also complete the mini games and there are 5 of them not including a free play mode as well. A good combo of games using the stylus, mic and normal controls. Some are really easy but some can be challanging. If anyone thinks the games are easy, try putting the comp difficulty to the hardest setting and trust me you will be tested. It is a must buy for anyones game collection
