Mario Party 4
Mario has done it again!
I just bought Mario Party 4 two weeks ago. I figured you can't go wrong with Mario and i was right. The story mode is a little cheesy but still fun. There are 4 different difficulty settings so it can go from wow this is easy to PLEASE SPARE ME! There are almost 80 different mini games so you can NEVER get bored. A down side is that you can only play as 8 characters: Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, Wario, Waluigi, Yoshi, Peach, and Daisy. There are 6 boards to play on, each having there own special spots and places. In the Lottery Shops you can win tons of coins to help you through your adventure. Bowser can get annoying popping up in random places and taken up all your coins, but thankfully there are games where you can get revenge on him. hahahahaha! Graphics are good, as so is the sound. Controls are very easy to learn considering it tells you what to do for that particular event. Not too long but there is also Party Mode so you can just jump right in and play with friends. I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys Mario games, or wants to have a fun time!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i liked the game minigames were cool i think it was a good game in 2002 the little problem was in every minigame that lady though she yelled START! FINISH! was kind annoying but this game was good and mario party 5 annoyed me about the lady yelling but good thing in mario party 6 they changed it to a man
very awesome and cool.
Nintendo rocks so try this if you're a party and kid gamers
Great with friends, but it can only do so much when you're alone.
Mario Party 4 was the first Mario Party I had ever played. The concept seemed a bit silly to me at first. You pick a character from the Mario franchise and put them on a game board, then you use that character to frantically collect stars and coins, you'll also be competing in routine mini-games. The boards are for more than just aesthetics, though. They feature many events and unique characters that can change the direction of the game in an instant. The game runs on a board-game like style. You start by choosing a character and a game board to play on. You then roll virtual dice to move across the board in order to collect hidden stars. The more stars you have the better, because they are the deciding factor in who wins the game. The spaces on the board have a variety of effects, ensuring a sense of unpredictable-ness that keeps you on your toes. The boards are varied, ranging from a carnival run by Toad to a graveyard haunted by Boo. You'll find yourself favoring one board, and when you invite friends over it'll most like become a fight just to determine what board you will play on. This is all up to your personal taste, but all of the boards are fun regardless of what you prefer. All of the boards have many different events and happenings that can affect your standing in the game in both good and bad ways. From taking a ride on a ghostly train of headstones to flying a pterodactyl, the boards are more than just a place to collect coins and grab stars. There are spaces that will hinder you in varied ways, such as the dreaded Bowser space, where Bowser will either steal precious items, mix up the items you have, or challenge you to a challenging mini-game where nobody is safe. Now for my next point, this game is only so good when you're alone. You can play against 4 computer players (on teams or a battle royale) with difficulties that range from easy to holy-crap-I-swear-the-computer-is-cheating. The computer players offer a good amount of challenge, but the real fun is when you're playing with your friends. Competing against each other in mini-games, stomping on each other with the help of mega-mushrooms, and stopping them abruptly in many amusing ways in their quest for the hidden stars is half of the fun of the game. Without friends, this game can lose its flair quickly (especially if you play too much). The mini-games are perhaps what makes the Mario Party series so much fun. The game features over 80 different mini-games that range from free-for-all, 1v3, 2v2, duel games (1v1), and Bowser games. All of these mini-games are a lot of fun, and when you get the hang of them you'll easily be able to beat the computer players (unless they're on a hard difficulty). Some of these games seem a bit imbalanced, giving an advantage to certain players or putting the person playing with a computer at a disadvantage. This can all be balanced out when playing with friends, but otherwise expect some of the team-based mini-games to be a bit frustrating when it comes to difficulty. Another element of the game worth mentioning are the orbs. This orbs can act as power ups to your character or hinder other players. These range from giving you more than one dice block to switching the orbs you have with someone else's. The single-player mode is fun, but nothing to rave at. It's short and serves as a medium for unlocking certain features of the game. The meat of the game is in the party mode, the board game I have just been describing to you. The game has some modes like mini-game mode where you can choose mini-games to play out of the ones you have unlocked already. These can be fun, but again, the meat is in the party mode where all of the elements of the game come together. It's hard to give Mario Party 4 a score, simply because it all depends on the number of friends you have. I have a lot of friends, so this game always seems to do it on a rainy day. If you have a Gamecube or Wii and can find this game (it's extremely cheap now) I would h
great with a group of friends
This was the third best mario party game to me. The party boards are fun, but they are kind of small. You can also be bored of the game maps sometimes. It is cool to be able to play as donkey kong. The graphics are awful sometimes, but graphics are not really important in a mario party. The more people you play with the better this game is. I recomend this to people who play with more than one person. Do not get this if you do not have anyone to play this with.
MARIO AT IT'S BEST
I don't usually play Mario games because they bore me but this game was just AMAZING. I played with my friend and his older brother and My favorite level was the Yoshi Island. I RECOMMEND THIS GAME FOR ALL PARTY GAMERS. P.S MOSTLY FUN WITH FRIENDS NOT COMPUTERS
Time to party with mario for the 4th time!
Blue space, red space, ? space, Mushroom space, bowser space, battle game space, warp space, forchen space are all in this game! Play as Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, DK, Wario, Waluigi, Peach, or Daisy. I recommend this to partyers and mario players. Get this!
I think that Mario Party 4 was quite a good game! I don't think I wasted my money at all, to tell you the truth. Maybe Mario Party 8 wasn't as good, but Mario Party 4 definitely rocks! I think it would be great to use as a birthday party game, or just something to have when your buddies come over. It is sure to please those who seek fun, exciting and thrilling party games for all ages. The music is okay, but I couldn't call it "good" since it's kind of kid's music. But it's nice for background. The graphics seem to be pretty good to me, and I like how you can make yourself larger with the mega mushroom... except, what's the deal with the mini mushroom? There's no point in going smaller and having shorter turns! If you use the mini mushroom you only get like one to five spaces to move. That wasn't a very good idea to add that in. Super mega mushroom ROCKS. The mini-games. Hmmm, I'd have to say, they are pretty decent. Though some of them are difficult to get through, especially for younger players. They might find it frustrating and annoying. When the computers are playing against you, note that they will likely win. Happens all the time! I really like The Great Deflate, and Dungeon Duos is great, plus it is challenging. The Great Deflate is really easy, so if you get to play that, it's easy to gain coins- just press A! I love the selection of characters. Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Wario, Waluigi, DK... that's pretty nice. I tend to choose Mario a lot, but it's good if I want to switch it around some other time. You know what, this game is so good, maybe I'll suggest it for a party game at my friend's place! Seriously, if you have a Gamecube and you like party games, then BUY it! Or at least borrow it from someone! I know now that I'm a party type of person, since this is definitely the game for me.
This is a great game for the GameCube! It is perfect for parties or playing with your friends! There are over 40 minigames to play. You can play Party Mode, Story Mode, or about five other modes. In this game you go around a board and earning coins, losing coins, earning stars, losing stars, and playing minigames. You can even steal stars and coins. There is also a game called "Reversal of Fortune", but it's not a minigame. It's basicly like swapping stars and coins, and stuff like that. Something I don't like about this game, is in the gooma board, you end up getting stuck in one color. The only way to get out is to use the Warp Pipe or land on the Spring space. I would recommend this game to everybody because this is one of the best Mario Party games yet!
Like parties? Well you're in for a treat!
Looking back at the previous three Mario Party games coming before this installment, it could be easy for a some crazy nostalgic person to knock this game off. For me however, this is not the case. Even though this game was released for the Game Cube I still think it's a superb game. The story? Some big "party box" appears and Mario & the gang want to go inside. Inside there's party boards to play on, minigames and lot's of fun. The minigames are just as fun as the previous 3 games and the boards are imaginative too. The only complaint I have is the graphics. For the Game Cube I don't think it holds up to the normal systems standards. Otherwise the game is great fun!
