Mario Party 9 Playtest: A Night At Blooper Beach

 

This is the experience of a group of late-20-somethings and their Sunday fun-day encounter with Mario Party 9.

As the game went on to show various graphs and figures of our progress, Not-Pat, Not-Caitlin and Not-Jessi began to argue their cases for deserving extra mini-stars for “Being most similar to Yellow Toad,” “Most capable of finding grotesque, gigantic,...

Mario Party 9 Review

 

Ain't no party like a Mario Party.

Mini-games are the best in any party game... ever.; Party mode matches don’t last two hours anymore.; Boss battles are an excellent addition

Players travel the board together, taking away individual progression.; Sub-HD graphics look like complete crap in 2012

Mario Party 9 offers little challenge at all, but that simplicity is inviting to children and people who don’t typically play video games. The board game layout and clearly defined rules make it a breeze for anyone to pick up and play with little to no...

Mario Party 9 Review

 

Though an enjoyable addition to the series, Mario Party 9 is much too familiar and predictable.

Fun multiplayer action ; Wide variety of minigames ; Cheerful, colorful visuals

Little lasting appeal ; Far too much emphasis on chance ; Solo mode is tedious and required for unlocks ; It's all too familiar

Mario Party 9

 

It's time to smash controllers once again. Mario Party 9 busts on to the Wii, five years after the last main installment. This is the first game in the series to be made by Nd Cube Co. instead of Hudson Soft. The game feels very familiar as soon as you...

Review: Mario Party 9 for Wii

 

Mario Party 9 plays like a trimmed down, more polite, somewhat simplified version of earlier Mario Party games. Likewise, this revamped style has trimmed the extreme reactions to the game so that there will be fewer screams of excitement when you get...

A simpler, friendly game than most others in the Mario Party franchise, in-game tips for maximizing Mini Stars and hours of party-game fun

Potentially too stripped down and simplified for long-time fans of the franchise. Turn and ranking menu is a little confusing. A bit pricey

Mario Party 9 Review

 

For the most part, that's not the case in Mario Party 9. In many ways it's tailored to the generation of gamers growing up with iPhones instead of Game Boys, and with Angry Birds instead of Pokemon Red. This generation wants games to be easy and...

Brand new rule set and mechanics; more tight and focused experience; consistent and fun aesthetic

Too many mini games rely on chance; somewhat less strategy involved; lacking in unlockables

Mario Party 9 Review

 

Can Mario keep up with today's party scene after a 5 year break?

The Mario Party games are meant to be played with a room of friends (and the total lack of online play reflects this). But every party will always be subverted by this entry's reliance on randomness to "shake things up," as Bowser puts it when he is...

Mario Party 9- Wii

 

This is a good addition to the series, and, in spite of its flaws, I do actually like it better than some of the predecessors I’ve played. For the most part, it does make good use of the controls and it caters specifically to multi-playing, which...

Mario Party 9 Review (Wii)

 

Mario Party is a game that needs no introduction. Probably the best known game of its genre, this board game come mini-game collection is now in its 9th release, after an uncharacteristic 5 year hiatus. The basic tenet of the game is up to 4 players...
