    Sep 14, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fun, cute and did I mention fun?
    Cons: Heckling voices!

    Summary: When my kids got into Mario Party back on the Gamecube, I didn't understand what the big deal was about the game, I mean a bunch of mini games? Big deal right? Well, I have since changed my mind since we have the Wii and PS3 in the living room, ... read more

    Pros: Great graphics
    Character Selection
    Cons: Needs directions on how to unlock things

    Summary: I love this game. I have never read the directions on how to play the game, I simply just put the game into my Wii and began to figure it put by playing. That is one of the things I liked about the game; the simplicity of it. The first time ... read more

  • Turns Out Mario Is Actually A Pretty Good Host

    Nov 14, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Loads of fun with friends, lots of extras, great gameplay
    Cons: No online play, some minigames are pretty dull, single player isn't very fun

    Summary: The Mario Party series was always one of those series that I was familiar with, but hadn’t ever tried simply because I was interested in other Mario games. However, when a pushy sales clerk offered me a reservation for this game, I went ahead and ... read more

  • Mario Party 8 - is this party any fun?

    Jan 8, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: lots of mini games, some fun use of motion controls, lots of modes/options
    Cons: graphics and sound are poor, some controls do not respond well

    Summary: Mario Party was a great game when it first came out.  It has all of the trimmings of a great kid-oriented game, and it certainly appeals to that audience too.  But I remember our neighbor and one of our other friends, back when I was in college ... read more

  • Get the Party Started with Mario Party 8

    Jun 4, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy to learn, silly carnival, board games, unlockables, mario characters, fun twists, 1-4 players
    Cons: long ringmaster segments, semi-annoying music, cluttered flashy graphics, can get boring for adults

    Summary: I bought Mario Party 8 as part of a bundle package about two years ago when we first got our Wii. One of the main draws of the Nintendo-created system was being able to play some games with those kooky plumbers again after years of Sony ... read more

    Pros: Great game board selections, all different from each other.
    Cons: The trophies are dumb!  I would like more Mini Games.

    Summary: We own ALL of the Mario Party games, Mario Party 8 for the Nintendo Wii is the best of them all.  All of the mini games, game boards and characters exceeded all expectations!  This game rocks!!  We get this game out with all of our friends ... read more

    Pros: Fun for any age, lots of fun extras.
    Cons: The price is still fairly high and the game is a bit older.

    Summary: This game is a staple if you own a Wii system. It is fun to play alone, but excels when played with friends.The game is very similar to previous Mario Party venues on earlier systems, such as the Nintendo Game Cube. The graphics are ... read more

  • Little Kids Stay, Adults Flee

    Jan 23, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fun and large variety of mini-games.
    Cons: Board game play is basically left to chance.

    Summary: Here's a game little kids seem to love but makes adults suddenly need to go work on their taxes.  Probably because its mostly based on chance instead of any strategy like those early childhood games like Sorry!  and Trouble.How The ... read more

  • There's Fun to be Had, and Potential to be Missed

    Pros: A Decent Amount of Fun Games
    Looks and Feels Very Much Like a Mario Party Game
    Cons: Motion Sensor Technology Hardly Tapped
    Recycled and Bland Board Gameplay
    Lack of Strategy

    Summary: I enjoy Mario Party games. I really do. I own all three N64 games, all four GCN games, and now the Wii game. The mini-games are usually hilariously funny and enjoyable to play, and the game boards along with the item system usually bring about a basic ... read more

    Dec 4, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quick to learn, easy to play, fun for all ages in groups.
    Cons: Annoying sounds and chatty characters, can't skip through tedious intros.

    Summary: I knew that purchasing a Wii would increase my popularity by several orders of magnitude, but what I failed to realize at first was that having the Wii is only half the equation.  The other key component is having awesome multiplayer games that ... read more

  • Mario Party 8- A really cheesy game collection

    May 26, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some games are fun, intuitave controls on some games, MARIO!
    Cons: A lot of games have bad controls, overly hard, or just plain boring. Annoying clown.

    Summary: I bought this game because I heard it was fun, and I knew many people who were fans of the older mario party games and were looking forward to getting this. I bought this because I had some money to "burn" and I saw it in the store. I decided to just buy ... read more

    Pros: Kids love it
    Cons: Boring for adults

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Mario and company will spend time with you even when nobody else will!
    Cons: Can be a little "childish". Gets boring fast.

    Summary: If you were (or are) one of those lonely kids like I was growing up, you still carry around baggage over not having anyone to play board games with. Maybe it's because I was an 80's child that board games were so important. Anyway, over time I grew up, ... read more

    Summary: I've personally played this game for hours and hours. I beat it twice, and have unlocked all of the minigames. In this review I will try to run through the main game, as well as some of the minigames. The review would be terribly long if I went through ... read more

    Pros: Multi-player/any age. Owned for more than 6 months, STILL THE favorite.
    Cons: I wish there were more "boards" to play.

    Summary: Recently purchasing a WII (not owning any previous "Mario Party" versions), this was one of the games we chose for our package (among 4 "bundled") and I couldn't be happier--this is by far our favorite which over 3 MONTHS, we've played the most. I am ... read more

    Pros: Fun for short periods of time.
    Cons: A little confusing to start with

    Summary: This game is definitely perplexing. I am a HUGE fan of the original Mario games and spent countless hours over the years trying to win them all. I should have paid more attention to the game case that clearly states these are minigames, rather than an ... read more
