Product Details:

Grab your friends and family and captain the crew to victory! The party is back and bigger than ever in the Mario Party 9 game for Wii, featuring all-new ways to play! For the first time in the franchise, boss battles crash the party and challenge players to compete to defeat a common enemy. In addition, players now travel across stages together in a vehicle towards a common goal - overcoming obstacles, battling bosses, and collecting Mini Stars stolen by Bowser and his minions. Featuring 80 new minigames, adventurous new stages, and all-new ways to play that blend cooperative and competitive action for up to four players*, Mario Party 9 is the perfect way to get the party started.

  • For the first time in the Mario Party franchise, each stage culminates in a Boss Battle. Collectively, players must combine their strength to defeat classic foes such as Bowser and King Boo while still playing competitively to boost their own individual scores.
  • In another first for the series, players ride across stages together in special vehicles. Players take turns as Captain of the vehicle by hitting Dice Blocks to move the party forward, hoping to land on lucky spaces. The vehicles also help to streamline game play and keep everyone involved in the action.
  • Unique Captain Events on each stage give players a new way to change the shape of the game.
  • In Mario Party 9, each themed stage has a clear destination point but with multiple paths along the way, so no two games will play the same. From Toad Road to Boo's Horror Castle, players will encounter a wide variety of familiar Mario franchise elements in new environments that can be enjoyed solo or with friends.
  • Includes 80 outrageous new minigames that find players making pizzas, escaping haunted mansions, and racing snowmobiles.
  • No time to play through an entire stage? New minigame modes let players enjoy the action in smaller chunks of time. They can hone their skills at any minigame in Free Play mode or try the Extras mode that includes Goomba Bowling and the puzzle-based Castle Clearout.
  • Every time they play, players can earn Party Points that are used to unlock special items and features.
* Additional accessories are required for multiplayer game play and are sold separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Fun Family/Friends Game Surprisingly, this is a very good Mario game. I would even go as far as saying that this is one of the best video games ever created. It's very fun to play with family and friends, and, to me, it never got old. I haven't played this game in about a year. I just thought about it. I'll have to go back to it sometime...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best game in the series! This is without a doubt my favorite game in the series. And from what I can tell this is perhaps the game that has the most divided opinion amoung the fanbase. I say that this is how you revamp a series that some people will say is "the same game every time" The story is pretty interesting having Bowser stealing all the mini-stars from the sky & You have to playthrough every board once before being able to take him on & stop him. The fact that everyone is riding in a vehicle makes it a really big leap in creativity in gameplay. The Bosses are a lot of fun even though I find it odd that Bowser Jr my favorite character in the franchise has the worst boss fight! the bonus that you get for winning on every single board easily makes it one my biggest one more try moments. you also use the mini stars you collect to buy constellations that shaped like several famous characters & items from series & then some to unlocking more vehicle that you can use for the courses. if you have a Wii or Wii U I highly recommend this game! I'm the bunnyboy & I'm so glad that the vehicle is coming back in Mario Party 10!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the same Don't get me wrong, this mario party game was very good. But the only thing I disliked about it was the lack of nostalgic feel from collecting your own stars on your own pace in the game. Also, the numbers on the block don't go high without one of those items you get to make the block go from 1-10. One thing I did like though, was the in party mode there's an option to play against "master" mode, which is actually a competition unlike the other mario games. These players actually bring everything to the table. I wouldn't recommend getting this if you were expecting the same gameplay as the older games, but it is an overall good party game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good graphics, fun to unlock stages The minigames are fun and clever, and the graphics are great--much better than Mario Party 8. It gives you a choice of 3 minigames each time, which is nice, because some of them are just based on luck.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wasted $50 I bought it new because i assumed i would love this game and i was wrong. Every board you travel around in one car. Why they decided to do that i dont understand. What people loved about Mario Party 8 is that you go on your own and try and get the star or to the end. This you travel around with everyone at the same time. STUPID. I liked the boards and the minigames but couldnt even play it because of not being able to go which way i wanted and etc. When i took it back i only got around 15 dollars for it so i wasted all that money. The guy at Gamestop said everyone was returning it now i know why. I hope they learned their lesson and make Mario Party 10 the right way!! Like 8 not 9!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Definitely Not the Best... Mario Party 9 is a must for Mario Party fans/collectors and that's it. Mario Party 9 has the worst character selection ever. That's not all. To make matters worse...everyone has to travel the board together. However with these cons, there are a couple of pros. One would be that the mini-games are actually pretty good and fun to play (if you can really call that a "pro" due to the fact that the game is created for that purpose) and in Mario Party 9, there are actually boss fights which I thought were really cool and something they should utilize in future Mario Party games. They shouldn't use all the baddies though...save some for character selection. Sorry MP...try again, :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real fun! I got mario party 8, it was real bad! Tyen I got mario party 9! It's awesome! The graphics are fine but doesn't make the game any worse. There are lots of new stages! You can even buy one with party points. I like the new system were all players travel in one car, as well as the mini stars. You also can buy veciles with party points. The mini games are AWESOME! I also like the extras mode and the mini games (step it up, high rollers). The olny bad thing is party mode depends on some luck.... still I give it a 10. Better to play with 2 or more players.
