    I, too, am more interested in a Mario Party game than I ever thought I'd be. I'll still wait for the review to see if all these new features create a better experience, but it's certainly looking like it'll earn a place on my shelf at this point.

    This coming for the 3DS?

    cool of them to take some time off and reconsider the formula. No doubt it will be lots of fun

    Nicely written Article. I'd consider buying this for the Boss Fights. However, like you mentioned, it looks a little too simplified.

    not for me, i still enjoy the random luck and fucking people over from mp1, the formula switch is probally nice for people who have played more/all of the games

    This. The only reason MP is ever worth playing is to laugh at the end when the award stars are given out, completely voiding everything that just happened through the course of the game. I'll never forget playing with my friend and getting stomped the whole round, then getting a star on the last turn and all 3 bonus stars and beating him with the coin tiebreak.

    EXACTLY, my bro and cousins almost always gang up on me and screw me over, but I end up with the bonus stars and make them eat shit, ah it was good times. Sucks MP is in a borderline, some people will whine and bash it about its unbalanced randomness and others will whine and bash about wanting the randomness.

    All I wanted was the costumes back. Is that too much to ask?

    I'll stick with good old N64 Mario Party and Sonic Shuffle. 2 better drinking games have yet to be made.
  • RonnyLive19881 - February 29, 2012 9:24 a.m.

    Actually that was made with Super Mario Galaxy 2, I found taking a drink after each time you die hilarious because when you eventually got the star it was on PURE drunken luck Lol, made me feel powerful in a drunkish kind of way. You can only really do this with Nintendo games Lol!

    It really has been an interesting period about thinking around this game, its awesome they decided to go through these changes, I personally just love the whole "Competitive Co-op" thing, its an Oxymoron and really makes you interact with your opponents much better. Damn, March is giving me WAY too many things.

    Its interesting, but seems a little too based on teamwork. Most of the fun from mario party for me is just screwing over everyone else in minigames or on the board as well.
  • shawksta - February 28, 2012 8:07 p.m.

    Thats the gimmick, the game is still competitive about screwing everyone over but you have to work together too, making it interesting.

    sounds really good might have to look into get this later
