North American box art.

Mario Party is a Mario-themed video board game with dozens of minigames developed by Husdon Soft and published by Nintendo on the Nintendo 64 in 1998-12-18. It can be played by 1-4 players.

Status

I have beaten the AI on DK's Jungle Adventure. I have beaten all of the mini games. I usually do fairly well against human opponents.

Review

  • Overall: 4/10
  • Best Version: Nintendo 64

— This section contains spoilers! —

Good

  • The idea of adding mini games to a board game is a lot of fun.
  • I like how you can use your game winnings to buy the mini games to practice.

Bad

  • The pacing of the game is too slow. While it's acceptable to have a lot of down time between turns in a board game, it's not as forgivable during a video game.
  • Due to the randomness of the game, it's possible to win every single mini-game, and still lose the game.

Ugly

  • The game really rewards randomness in the final star ceremony when a star is given for the player who landed on the most question mark spaces. It's possible to attempt to go for this star, but it usually requires taking undesirable forks, and even then, it's still pretty random.
