Rated 1 out of 5 by from Literally the worst 3DS Mario game I ever played As a huge fan of the Mario franchise, each and every one of its games I played on the 3DS had at least one good thing about it that made the whole package enjoyable (at least, for me): 3D Land felt new with its 3D environments, Mario Kart 7 had good tracks, NSMB2 had Coin Rush, Tennis Open had customization for Miis (but otherwise a disappointing game), Sticker Star had plenty of ideas (even though the core mechanics left a lot to be said), Dark Moon had five mansions to explore, Dream Team had improvements over its DS entries, Mario Golf: World Tour had content, Paper Jam had Paper Mario, etc. Mario Party: Island Tour, however, had zero good things about it and after playing this entire package, my disappointment for this game has never been this deep...ever. The game felt like a toy box of broken toys with missing pieces, similar to any of the toys built by Sid in Toy Story 1; The boards' rules were badly executed to heck as most of them rely too much on luck (I'm looking at you, Star-Crossed Skyway!) and are at times either too long (Kamek's Carpet Ride) or too short (Banzai Bill's Mad Mountain). The only board that is even remotely good is the Perilous Palace Path, but even that board had its issues. Each and every game in the Mario Party series had at least one good minigame (Mario Mechs in MP5, anybody?), but Island Tour was an exception for me as after playing each and every minigame, not one of them stood out as something memorable, and the same goes for the Boss Minigames, each with a copious amount of unique problems that render them ultimately regrettable: The first two bosses were too easy, the next two were badly executed beyond belief, and the final two were interesting ideas that were only fun for one run. And finally, the lack of any good content in the game is cherry top on this mess of a sundae; you collect points and spend them on...bubbles, most of which are pointless collectables to buy while the rest of the small few consist of music and voice clips for the characters. After playing this game for two days, I returned it back to my Gamestop store without a second thought as I was done with it. Even after how "bad" Sticker Star was, I'd still rather play that over Island Tour.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grab your friends and get ready to party! Because of all the mixed reviews, I was hesitant in getting this game, but it is really fun! Instead of collecting stars in party mode like you do in most of the other Mario party games the point is to get to the end as fast as possible! And winning minigames gives you items and power ups to get you there faster! Bowser's tower is great if you want to play by yourself as it is challenging yet very fun! I also love the game mode where you can play random minigames until one person wins 3, 5, or 7 of them! If you are still uncertain about this game then pick up a copy used and you will get a whole week to decide if you want to keep it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay, but definitely could've been WAY better Since Mario Party DS was one of my favorite games as a child, I picked up a copy Mario Party: Island Tour (despite negative reviews). The soundtrack and stages lack the charisma that made the earlier games so memorable, and the story mode is nothing close to that of MP DS's (it's basically 30 floors of minigames and six incredibly easy bosses, only to discover that (SPOILER ALERT) you actually didn't defeat Bowser in the end). The only thing I particularly like about the game is how most of the minigames rely on actual skill instead of luck, and how each of the boards have a different way of winning (i.re. collecting ministars, etc). I also like how you can actually do things with your Mario Party Points, like spend them on voice bits and music. But then again the earlier games had these available for free. A good use of the MP shop would've been to purchase trophies or something like that, but the game doesn't even HAVE trophies. Overall I'd give it a 6.5/10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great game for friendly or serious competition. I've been reading a lot of bad reviews about this game lately. I know a lot of people are used to older Mario Party games, but coming from a bit of a rookie's perspective, I really enjoyed this game. Most of the bad reviews are talking about the poor single player portion of the game. Mario Party isn't SUPPOSED to be a single player game. Before you begin to bash this game, get three friends together (if possible) and set up an hour long game. I can almost guarantee you that you'll have a great time. Plus, for a group on a budget, the DS download play makes the game even more appealing. The only drawback I found is the game can be very centered around luck. HOWEVER, if this isn't what you're looking for, Nintendo made seven different boards. Each of these have varying levels of luck, skill, and dependency on mini-games. It's very possible that this game isn't as good as the others may be, but viewing it correctly (as it's own game) this game is worth the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Design Shames the Series Island Tour is the latest in a string of recent disappointments in the Mario Party series. While one would think that the 3DS could save the series with its high graphical quality, multiple controls, and online capabilities, that just isn't so. The only multi-player is single-card wireless, utilizing the 3DS's RAM for other players. The mini-games use gimmicky controls with the gyroscope, microphone, and stylus, resulting in some of them being difficult at best and unbeatable at worst. The AI tends to get exactly the number they always on dice rolls, and in one instance, the game skipped a player's turn to give the AI the chance to win the board. This game is yet another stain on the Mario Party series.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So terrible, please take it back gamestop. This is by far the worst Mario Party game in the series. The new gimmick of finishing first is so dumb, especially if you've played the old ones. Mario Party 9 and this have been extreme disappointments in my eyes regarding nostalgia, mainly. If you're new to the series, this game will still be boring. I'm praying gamestop will buy this game back from me because I hate it so much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for casual gaming, yet frustrating! Good game-play I believe to be directed more towards playing with your friends at a get together. The single player experience is washed down a tad, but i enjoyed it none the less. This would probably be the 5th game on my list of recommendations.
