  • Players ride across stages together in special vehicles. Players take turns as Captain of the vehicle by hitting Dice Blocks to move the party forward, hoping to land on lucky spaces.
  • From Toad Road to Boo's Horror Castle, players will encounter a wide variety of familiar Mario franchise elements in new environments that can be enjoyed solo or with friends.
  • In Mario Party 9, each themed stage has a clear destination point but with multiple paths along the way, so no two games will play the same. Every time they play, players can earn Party Points that are used to unlock special items and features.
  • Each stage culminates in a Boss Battle. Collectively, players must combine their strength to defeat classic foes such as Bowser and King Boo while still playing competitively to boost their own individual scores.
  • Includes 80 outrageous new minigames that find players making pizzas, escaping haunted mansions, and racing snowmobiles

I've been an avid player of the Mario Party series, particularly with its involvement in a fierce rivalry between myself and my siblings. With that said, I am HAPPY with the adjustments that Nintendo has made to what has become a formulaic series.

Perhaps the biggest change longtime fans will recognize is that individual movement has now been reduced to all players riding in a car, traversing the board together. If it is your turn to roll the dice, you are the "Captain" and any space you land on will affect you, not the party (not always the case, however). Right off the bat, there are no coins to collect any more. Instead, you collect mini-stars which are scattered across the board (player with the most at the end wins) and are rewards for mini-games, which leads me to the next biggest change. Mini-games are now only played when a player lands on a designated minigame spot or lands on a spot that is hidden with a minigame (additionally, you the Captain choose the minigame, it is no longer randomly selected). I found this change odd at first, but the fact is, the pace is fast and quick, no longer subject to formula of roll, roll, roll, roll, minigame, repeat.

Players no longer circumvent the board continuously but rather strive to reach the end of the board now. The boards feature a mid-boss and a final boss: an enemy that all players attempt to beat while competing for mini-stars at the same time. The variety of bosses to choose is fun but I feel like they may become monotonous over time. The boards themselves are nothing new to the Mario Party franchise (Boo's Castle, Blooper Beach, DK's Jungle Ruins, and Bowser Station to name a few) but they are wonderfully designed with brilliant colors and enough variability to make them a joy to play through.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, But I Miss Individuality March 11, 2012
Format:Video Game
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
We are HUGE Mario fans in this house, but there's something about Mario Party 9 that bothers a few of us here. Our 11 year old son, the Mario fanatic, loves the game - our 7 year old daughter, is "meh" about the game - my husband hates the game and enjoys the minigames - I am torn.

I love the new mini-games. They're fun and yet easy enough for just about anyone to play. My favorite so far is the most simple: you select a box that says something like "you +3", and it moves your platform up 3 spaces. Once you get up 10 spaces, you win! See? Simple!

This time around, however, Mario and his crew are all together in a boat (or a car...or something else) taking turns together. The person who rolls is the "captain", and the others just sit along for the ride. So this means that you don't get to choose where you go on the board.

I, for one, really enjoyed the ability to select where I wanted to go. I loved that there was a touch of strategy to the game. Now? There's really not as much.

NO MORE ITEMS. THIS annoys me. I also enjoyed being able to go the store to purchase items. Yes, it may get frustrating if someone was taking forever (then you just whack them with a pillow), but again, you could strategize. Now the only item you get is a dice block. A DICE BLOCK?? Boring and definitely nowhere near as strategic as the old way.

I realize that Nintendo may be trying to freshen up the series, but the problem is that they have solid, hard-core fans who loved the older way. There are all sorts of things they could've done (like on the ocean map the shark that can get you and take stars away - very cool), without taking away the player's individuality and ability to strategize.

I give it 3 stars.

So,... we played Mario Party 9 this last Saturday. My family is a strong proponent for the Mario Party games. We have been addicted to the series since Mario Party 4 came out on the GameCube, and we even went out and bought Mario Party 2 & Mario Party 3 for the 64 after the fact. We loved Mario Party 8, and have been waiting for an update, ever since. After playing Mario Party 9, though, I have to say that the adult players were disappointed.

-Still fun (for all ages).
