Mario Party Island Tour
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
This was by far one of the worst mario party games ive ever played. with almost only one course actually including minigames, it was just terrible for me.
So far the game is good, but it is not a game that can last awhile to play. SOme people will like it some won't.
dont listen to the other people buy this!!
first off let me say that this game is so much fun, especially for the fact that you can use just one game for up to 4 players! this game is just like every other mario party except the fighting for stars, instead you have to race to the finish. in my opinion i think even with it being like that its still fun it still has all the fun mini games and same gameplay as all the other mario partys its just different but its not bad its good. overall i think that this is a very fun game (just like every mario game) and people should get over the fact that they changed it.
It's a game to pass the time. Nothing great.
This is, in my opinion, the worst Mario Party yet. It has no goal besides getting to the end of the track. The gameplay gets bland, and the maps are awful.
Do Not Buy This Game!
I love Mario Party. I love it on the N64, the GameCube, the Wii, and the DS. But this is an abysmal game. No star collecting or anything remotely close, just basic and bland "race-to-the-finish" style boards with a quirky mechanic tacked on haphazardly. VERY few minigames, you no longer get to play them between turns for coins, in fact there aren't even coins in this game. This is honestly the worst, most disappointing experience I have ever had with a Nintendo product, maybe even video games in general. PLEASE do not buy this for yourself or your child. It will do nothing but sadden you :(
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.
NOT AS EXPECTED
I was highly disappointed with this gameplay, I miss the old Mario Parties where you and the other players had to fight over the stars, the minigames were at least a little fun
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
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 !
