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 !
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.
the minigames were cool they kinda reminded me from mario party ds anyways the minigames were cool but the party was ehh it sucked it was soo slow just to take a turn didnt like it it was ok but i wouldnt recomend buying this game mario party 7 sucks though but its way better than this game
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
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.
Very Strangely Underrated.
Mario Party has always been a game I appreciate. Its nearly always fun, with a few exceptions. This game is fun, portable, and felt original. The gyro games are really the only problem, as I faced occasional "sticky" controls, but that may have been my 3DS. What's great is your friends don't need a copy of it for multiplayer, as it has a fully functional 3DS Download Play support. Its odd when viewing reviews that say its boring or unoriginal. The visuals are great and colorful, the sound is comedic and fitting. The gameplay, as said before, is mostly smooth, with gyro being sticky at times. This is one game, I highly recommend to pick up. Overral, Mario Party: Island Tour is a fun game, that has a multiplayer that doesn't get old.
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
