  Vastly popular for kids

| | See all NesMan0788's reviews (3)

This is an amazing and fun game for kids to play. My nieces and nefues from the age of 4 love this game to a point in which they are disappointed when its finished. there are many fun minigames to play and six different board games to choose from.

  A Step Backwards for the Series

| | See all drlowdon's reviews (468)

The Mario Party games have always provided plenty of multiplayer fun (although single player has always been dull) but this eighth entry in the series is a huge step backwards. An element of luck has always been required if you were to win but here it is taken to the extreme with stars no longer awarded post-game for winning the most mini-games or collecting the most coins. The mini-games themselves also lack the imagination of previous titles with the majority just requiring players the shake the Wiimote as fast as they can. Do yourself a favour and pick up either Mario Party 4 or the DS Version instead.

  Good For The Weekend

If you have a couple of hours to kill then this game will fill the void - It is a whole lot of fun. The only draw back is that there are only 6 boards to choose from when in 'party mode'
I play this with my husband when I feel competitive & want want a laugh. A big thumbs up!!!

  spot on

Amazing game, like all the previous titles. Great fun with the mates, a real competative game. Although could have worked on the mini games more. A must buy though

  A Great Game Whether Playing Alone or With Others.

I've loved this game since the first time I played it over a friends, quite a while before I owned a wii. So as soon as we got ours a few weeks ago, this was the first game I bought.

It rarely gets boring, no matter how often you play it. Even playing it alone is extremely fun, but the more players the better! If you love board games and love Mario then this is the game for you!

A fun family game, just have a few beers and you can play this game a whole evening. Very easy to master and funny minigames.
A must buy game if you like multiplayer.

I bought this game for kids as they like playing it on the ds. I would say a lot better on the wii especially on multiplayer mode. Plenty of mini games and levels a really fun game. Kids and myself quite hooked.
