Mario Party 9

 

How can a company regurgitate the same formula over many years and hope that it still remains fresh? With football games it is a case of tweaking the style of play and updating rosters, platform adventures add in extra moves and special stages, but a...

Mario Party 9 review: A big improvement - but it cant live with Nintendos best

 

So developer Hudson Soft is no more, swallowed up in the jaws of the white whale Konami, while their perpetual Mario Party is now being hosted by Nintendo - or more specifically, by Nintendo's subsidiary company Nd Cube. It's all change for one of the...

Addition of vehicles is a surprising, unexpected success ; Consistent, enjoyable minigames ; Polished Party mode

Solo mode is terrible ; Still has the feeling, and execution, of a second tier Nintendo title

There's still a whiff of exploitation, but at least Mario and co appear to be enjoying themselves at their latest do. Refreshing, but there's potential for even better things next time.

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

Overall, Mario Party 9 is a decent package with a lot of content, even if the Story mode is something you'll wish you could avoid. It's colorful, good looking, and fun with others, but after so many games, the appeal just isn't going to last for many...

Mario Party 9

 

The Wii has always been about bringing people together to play, and Mario Party 9 does that considerably better than I thought it would.

Tons of fun with friends ; Some nice new ideas

If you only play skill-based games, look elsewhere ; Playing alone isn't much fun

Essentially, Mario Party 9 is a great leveller. No matter if you play games for a living or only touch a controller when one is forced into you hand, chances are you'll be in with a shot of winning come the end of the each game. The Wii has always been...

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...

Mario Party 9

 

Mario Party returns to Wii. There's loads more minigame fun to have with your friends, and this time.....

Recommended as a great party game, but probably not as a thrilling solo challenge. But then, it’s hardly a party if you’re on your own with three computer simulated characters, right?

Mario Party 9

 

So what does it take to keep a series going for nine incarnations? It must be a tough gig, but Nintendo have pulled it off once again with Mario Party 9.

Shorter gamer length ; More luck than skill ; More relaxed game play

Not as many Mini-Games played during a game ; Too much talking/text during cut scenes ; No DK Spots

Contrary to other reviews I have read on this game, I believe there has been just the right amount of change made to keep it fresh. It’s certainly one for families who get a chance to play together. A lot more luck is required this time around too

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

 

Party like it's 1999.

Mario Party 9 follows the same gameplay structure as the long-running franchise, but changes things up with a new way to move around the game board and with the introduction of boss fights. The mini-games use the Wii Remote wisely and don’t force...
