I am disappointed that I bought this as a download from the eshop, as after only one night, I would probably sell the game if possible. The last Wii game had no change in game rules from board to board, so I was glad to hear that this game would feature 7 boards, each with its own rules. First off, unless you have plenty of friends with a 3DS, consider this to have 6 boards, as the 7th requires at least 3 human players. My wife and I played through 5 of the 6 we could play, then she said she won't play it again, just 2 hours after I bought it. We used to play the old games for weeks! The rules for the boards ARE varied and generally good, however no board has classic Mario Party rules. You won't be collecting coins and stars and there are no bonus stars at the end of the round. These boards are mostly about getting to the finish line first, that's it. Obstacles and how you get there change, BUT the game has been shortened for handheld play to the point that it all seems more pointless than ever. These are boards with 20 spaces that can be beaten in 4-5 turns! When you add in the luck-factor of these games, the short boards ruin everything. Somebody rolls a 6 on turn 1 and they're 1/3 of the way to having won! One board is hilarious as it has you collecting "boosters" to multiply your dice roll. 3 turns in you play a mini game to win 3 boosters. I won, used the 3 boosters and immediately won the board. Whichever player had won that very first mini game would have won the board that turn without question. Only 1 of the 5 boards we played had any length to it at all, but we knew who the winner was well before the game was over. That was an issue with all boards, with no bonus stars, the winner was clear before they even crossed the finish line.Read more ›

I'm a pretty big fan of Mario Party. I own every game in the series, and this is easily the worst one. It's such a shame. The 3DS is easily one of my favorite consoles of all time, so I had pretty high hopes for this installment, but their attempt to reinvent the series in the last couple of iterations is saddening.

Here are my main complaints:

- Nontraditional, linear boards: They did away with the classic coins-and-stars gameplay entirely in favor of gimmicks like races and card-based games.
- Short boards: They vary in length, but there's at least one you can win in three turns.
- Overly luck-based: I know, it's Mario Party -- luck is always an element. But there is WAY too much reliance on luck in this installment, for boards and minigames alike. Even some minigames that seem skill-based are more luck-reliant (I'm citing the minigame Stretch Run here -- the strength of the rubber band changes each time you play). Strategy in boards is either nonexistent or ultimately futile because mostly everything can be foiled by a single dice roll gone wrong.
- Lame incentive: You get points for playing boards, but pretty much all you can buy with them are, like, sound tests for these characters you've heard in six hundred other games. Yippee.

But there are some redeeming qualities:

+ Not all the minigames are bad: Some of them, like Color Me Fast, are excellent.
+ Pretty: The game has the beautiful Nintendo polish you would expect.
+ Download play: I suspect the download play multiplayer would be good if the game wasn't so lame. (You can play with up to 3 other players, and they don't even need to own the game, just their own 3DS to play it on.)

All in all, I'd sit this one out. There are so many great games for the 3DS, and so many great Mario Party games. This is neither.

I'm a person who has a 3DS but not a home console, and who also loves the Mario Party series. I really enjoyed Mario Party DS, so I was excited when I saw this was coming out.

Mario Party is one of the series that Nintendo is experimenting with to keep the formula fresh. No longer are players earning coins and chasing after stars. Mario Party 3DS instead has players competing for dice and items that help them to move along, much like the recent Wii Party (U) games. All of the boards are uni-directional, meaning that once you reach the finish line, the game is over.

An addition I really appreciated is that each board is rated in terms of luck, skill, and rough amount time needed to complete it. Compared to Mario Part 9 for the wii, I think that the boards are generally more skill rather than luck, although the giant swings in luck can be infuriating. In regards to the minigames, the meat of any Mario Party, the selection is pretty limited, but there is a good amount of variety. So, both the minigames and boards can get old pretty quickly, especially with how quick some are.

Overall, the game is very polished and fun, but didn't keep me wanting to come back after I had tried everything. They did add a single player mode where you play through Bowser's Tower, but you have to start on the lowest difficulty setting. The difficulty then increases each time you play it. It takes a long time (thanks goodness for the fast-forward button!) but seems to be there just to extend play time. I haven't gotten a chance to play with other humans yet, so maybe that'll give the game a second life.

Bottom line is to wait for the price to drop or get a used version. It's certainly not a bad addition, but it's not worth the full price.
