I have this Nintendo DS game called Mario Party. It’s really fun because you play with Mario, his friends and Wario and Waluigi who are usually his enemies in other Mario games. There are 10 rounds on party boards and at the end of each round there is a mini-games. Sometimes battles happen instead of mini-games once every party. A party is the 10 rounds which is the level. In story mode you can play as any available player. You need to play the boards in this order: Wiggler’s Garden, Toadette’s Music Room, DK’s Stone Statue, Kamek’s Library and Bowser’s Pinball Machine and later you have to beat the bosses at the end of each level. There are 6 modes in this game. In party mode you can be any character like story mode except you don’t need to be the same character for every single board, but you can if you want. My favourite characters are Yoshi and Toad. In order to be able to play Bowser’s Pinball Machine in party mode you first need to beat it on story mode. My favourite mode is the mini-game one. It lets you play mini-games that you’ve unlocked in story mode. My least favourite is puzzle mode because I find it really hard and it can go on forever. When you lose, you lose all your points and you have to start from where you lost at. I find it frustrating because the level I usually get to before I die is really high and difficult so when I restart without any points it makes it even harder. If you want to play in this mode there are 5 puzzles in the first section and one in the second that has two different modes, focus mode or free-for-all. Multiplayer mode lets you play with friends up to 4 people and you can play mini-game or party mode with everyone. There is also a Gallery that lets you see the badges and character figures you automatically get by earning points and boss trophies when you beat the bosses.
I find a lot of the challenges easy in this game, but some are super difficult. I wish there were more medium skilled ones for me to practice on after the easy levels so I’m ready for the hard ones. Right now, it jumps from really easy to really hard too quickly. I still find this game fun because the mini-games are funny. I like running away from the vacuum in Dust Buddies and surfing on soap in Soap Surfers. This is a really good game for friends to challenge each other in the multi-player mode. My friends and I enjoy trying to beat each other in this game. My friend even bought this game because I had it and he thought it was awesome. Maybe you will think so too. Even though there are some things I don’t like about it I still love Mario Party and I think it’s a good game to buy. In fact, you should run to the store right now because they might be running out. It’s that awesome!
I rate it 4/5 Power Stars.
