Partylicious by Coma89
Mario Party games uphold a tradition of beautiful boards, wacky fun mini games, and exciting turnouts. As years have passed, many have been doubtful if Mario could continue to make such great party games time after time. But Shigeru Miyamoto has once again proven the doubtful very wrong indeed. Although Mario Party 8 ( the Wii's premiere party) was slightly lacking, every single predecessor was amazing. Mario Party DS is the DS's first party, and it was not a disappointment. Five fun and exciting game boards, 74 mini games, and a great storylinemake this a very special game. Although some games feel a little to simple or similar to other games, the variety is good. The graphics aren't as sharp as we have seen on the DS, but they're not terrible. Overall, this game is one of the best DS games out there, and it is by far the very best multiplayer one. So come on in; the party's just getting started.
Mario party goes mobile.
Mario party DS is the first and the only mario party game on the DS, it is okay, but feels a little rushed. the mini games are great, the story is kinda stupid, what happens is Bowser is trying to convince Mario and his friends that he's changed, so he throws a party, Mario and his friends come, the party turns out to be a trap, (does this remind anyone else of sonic colors?) Bowser shrinks down Mario and his friends and sends them on an adventure. so there are 5 boards in this game, and they all look great, you will be going through a huge garden, a music room, a giant statue of Donkey Kong, Kemeck's huge library, and Bowser's pinball machine. now the minigames, these are good but most of them require luck, which can be annoying, also trust me, you will really want to turn off the microphone option in minigame settings. so after all of the minigames, you fight a boss at the end of each board, one problem is that you have to win sevreal luck based minigames, and be 1st against 3 other CPU controlled characters, to win you need to collect the most stars of the other 3 players, but in the Kemck's library board there are stars are hidden in 3 jars 1 has a star, the other two send you back to the beginning of the board. but even though all of those things are frustrating, I still think that this is the most underrated Mario party game ever.
so much fun you have to get this right now
it is awesome you can do so many different modes like battle were there is 4 different people and you all go head to head or theres tag battle were there is 2 teams or there is duel round and that is were you and another play go head to head i thing you should get it but i only got my for 7 dollers so get it used
mario party wherever you go
Mario party ds is a portable version of mario party. I have to say it is pretty good. The story is that bowser has turned all of the 8 characters tiny. There are 5 game boards with different themes. The playable characters are mario,luigi,peach,daisy,wario,waluigi,yoshi and toad. It also has very creative and fun minigames. If you ask me this game is way better than mario party 8. I heard that mario party 9 is pretty good though. If you want to play mario party wherever you go get this game.
Best when playing against friends
This game is best when playing with friends.the main story line is good ,but this game is most fun when competing with friends.A great game for the DS
Good with friends
The one player mode is pretty sucky honestly but this is a very good game to just play with family or friends. This is more based towards the 8-14 age area.
Great for a Nitendo DS party.
I've played this game many times and let me just tell you, this game is great. Everytime I pick up my DS I slip this game in because I can't get enough. Mario games themselves are very addictive in a good way. I can't pull myself away. This game will up all night trying to beat a level. I love it. Since I'm so young myself.
good for awhile
this game is good, but the mini games get repetitive, it has good graphics for a ds game, after awhile, it gets boring, but all in all it's a good buy.
mario party DS!!!
i got this game yesterday new at gamestop. I tryed it out it could'nt be bad because all the mario party's i've played have be good. the game was just as good as 4,5,6,7,8 and i think it had the best mini games.the only bad thing about the game was that you could only play as 8 characters.mario,luigi,peach,daisy,wario,waluigi,toad and yoshi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
party is on the go with style
Mario party ds has a wonderful storyline, but the graphics suck, the game to me is wonderful, expect the repeating mini-games from 4 player and duel games. The boards have good graphics but rnt the best go to mario party 7 for that. I recoomend this title for all gamers who like party and mario. I rate this game a 8.5 out of 10
