Mario Party Island Tour
Mario's taking his party to 3D.
mario party 3DS is an upcoming title for the Nintendo 3DS. It is the thirteenth in the main series (seventeenth in Japan) in the Mario Party series and the third installment for a handheld console, it will be coming out in November 2013 for north America and Europe.and in Winter 2012 for japan. anyway, on to the gameplay, Not much is shown about the gameplay at the moment, but it seems that this Mario Party game uses the traditional independent four player gameplay as opposed to Mario Party 9, except players still toss a six-sided dice block instead of a dice block numbered one to ten. However, the Spaces appear similar in function to those from Mario Party 9. It is also shown that the players can use special cards to hinder their opponents, similar to Orbs from previous Mario Party installments. There are 81 minigames confirmed. so far that's all that's known, it looks great,
Mario Party island tour, aka mario party 10 3D
Mario party island tour will be coming out on november 22, and it looks like it's going to be the sequel to mario party 6, because mario party 6 was all about a cruise while this game could be the island that they're going to after the cruise. mario, luigi, toad, yoshi, princess peach, waluigi, and more are all playable and the boards will be a town that looks like toad town from paper mario, a grassland that looks like toad road, a board that looks like world 6 of new super mario bros wii, and one with a super mario galaxy space theme. there are 81 minigames available, and one of them involves wrapping a rope around goombas, and another one where you race against the others in a water race minigame. and so far this game looks great, but what island are they talking about in the title, isle delfino?, the island that they were going to in mario party 6?. well, we will all find out when it comes out.
Party On with all new stuff!
I love this game because it has 7 board with different rules , like reaching to the finish and collecting many Mini Stars as you can. This game also has boss mini games returning from Mario Party 9 . The characters are also great like all the characters returning from Mario Party DS , Boo and a new character Bowser Jr.. The game has Collectables that you can spend by using Mario Party Points . It's really fun! I point it 9.5 out of 10 !
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.
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.
Party in a new dimension
It's been years since we have seen a Mario Party on a portable console. Mario Party on the DS wasn't the best game but things are looking good for the latest entry on the 3ds. The new stages look very good and well put together, there is even a Super Mario Galaxy based stage!!!! The car that every player would be on from Mario Party 9 is out so the game is going back to, in my opinion, the better and classic way of playing. The 3d functionality looks to be good. Overall I would say to get this game if you love Mario Party. But if there is online multilayer than it would be a good idea to get this game.
New ideas equal boring new gameplay
I have always been a fan of the Mario Party series with it's classic run around boards getting coins and buying stars to see who can get the most in the end. Things changed with Mario Party 9 and while lots of people didn't like Mario Party 9, I loved it. Mario Party Island Tour on the other hand is a different story. Every board is different and most of them are boring to play. Another complaint is the lack of online play, there is none. Solo mode is not as creative as past Mario Party games and while some of the minigames were fun, Mario Party 9 still has the best Minigames. If you really want a portable Mario Party game, save your money and get Mario Party DS cause that's more fun. Lets just hope that if they make Mario Party U it'll go back to what the series is known for and not try to experiment yet again
Pretty Good game,but lacks things.
There is lots of cool stuff in this game,but it is lacking things from the first 10.Since there are lots of bad ones in the series it is probably the 4th best
Looks so fun! :):):)
When I first heard of this game I was so happy. I LOVE Mario Party. And all of the new mini games and boards in this looks awesome. I love all of the personality and fun of Mario Party. The graphics look nice for the 3DS as well. I just really hope this has online I enjoy playing Mario Party most with friends and even Mario Party DS had online so PLEASE Nintendo. That would make this game forever better thanks. But this game does look good. And I love Mario Party! God Bless and happy gaming. I hope u all enjoy this game with your friends and family.
Nintendo always keeps out the most important part
The mini games are pretty boring and they all start out unlocked from the beginning. Each one lasts no more than 10 seconds and involves pretty limited effort. The boards you play on have nothing to do with getting stars, its all about rolling higher numbers to get to the finish line first. There is nothing in the game to unlock besides Baby Bowser and some sound clips so it gives you no reason to keep playing. Worst of all there is NO MULTIPLAYER!!!... Seriously!? Not sure why you would leave that out of this game. It doesn't help that the computer players are pretty bad regardless of the difficulty. This game is a huge disappointment.
