    5.2-ouch

    maybe i will rent this....

    out of 10 click here for ratings guide
    6.0 Presentation
    Dozens of new mini-games and a handful of new modes. You can incorporate your Miis into some games, but not all. Interface works, but the visuals are dated.
    5.0 Graphics
    The only Nintendo-published Wii game that doesn't really run in 16:9 widescreen mode, it's clear that Mario Party 8 was originally a GCN effort. The graphics don't even impress as a GCN title.
    5.0 Sound
    Some of the boards have catchy MIDI music, but character sound effects repeat often.
    5.0 Gameplay
    The formula is wearing thin. Some of the new minis use the Wii remote in unique and fun ways. Most don't. The single-player game is like torture.
    8.0 Lasting Appeal
    If you can overlook its shortcomings, Mario Party 8 offers a robust list of minis and modes to keep you busy and everything is better with friends.
    5.2
    Mediocre OVERALL
    (out of 10 / not an average)

    That's what makes Mario Party.



    I'm probobly just going to wait for a good time to play it with people and exploit some stores return policy unless it's actualy good.

    BTW: Andy f'ed up today.

    My fiancé and I picked up this game today. We played one 15 turn match and it was a good time. The 16 mini games we played were a mix of motion control and dpad. All of the mini games we played were relatively fun. This game is basically exactly the same as previous MP games. If you didn't like the other ones, you won't like this one despite the motion controls.

    Overall, I like it so far, but I'm a fan of MP games.

    P.S. in reply to Levesqueisking from his obnoxious post: there haven't been any 'button mashing' games

    i think the games come out disappointing because we all think that its going to be so amazing because of the controls and we just don't think the game can be anything but amazing. I also have a problem of people saying these graphics look worse than most GCN games duh you are going to think that cause we have all seen what the PS3 and Xbox 360 so it makes what the wii does look really out of date when really its not. Also, This is the first generation of games for this system they not been able to take full control of the wiis hardware yet... i mean look at the GCN last few games compaired to say Luigis Mansion. but those are just my feelings (and who cares about graphics anyways its all about GAME play for a videoGAME)

    oh yeah thursday i am buying this game when i get some money

    I bought the game today. At first I was disappointed. It is a bit boring at times, but the board game makes it better. If your banking on renting this for the minigames only, your gonna be disappointed. You have to unlock them by playing the board game.

    Overall, I would give it a 6. My wife loves it so its okay with me. I like it but not love it. My little brother was visiting and actually took it out and put super paper mario in. If it was just me playing, I would not buy this game. However, it is fun with groups. Not sure what else to say about it.

    I cant wait for games like strikers and The Bigs. Im into competive games like that. These games are alot of luck, a little skill. Aggrevating at times but its all good.


    I think gamespot puts it best with this quote. "There are some good minigames in Mario Party 8, but the overly familiar, chance-heavy board game wrapper gets in their way." Exactly what I was trying to say. To chance heavy

    are they reviewing this in SP? Maybe they should review it with 3 other people. I bet scores would be better. Its sad to see that chance factor is still in this one. I mean its cool and all to be the underdog and come out on top, but it happens almost too frequently and it sucks.

    I'm sure they take SP and MP into consideration. Thats a bad score but then again it is Mario Party...

    IGN loses credibility in my book for that review.

    If this were a hacked up GCN title, the motion sensing wouldn't work nearly as well as it did. They clearly built it for the Wii. The borders to fill the rest of the widescreen area is a bit annoying, but not everything is like that. The aerial view of the carnival, for example, takes the entire screen.

    This game is extremely fun to play. The minigames were a blast. I killed an hour and a half and it seemed like three minutes. The gameplay is smooth, the graphics are decent, and it's just so much fun.

    There is a lot to the game. And, as with any Mario Party, there is a lot of replay value. Furthermore, it's great to play together.

    I got it last night. Well worth the $39.99 Wal*Mart is charging for it (at least here), in my opinion.
