    A fantastic addition for the 3DS. The graphics are crisp and utilize 3D well, while the music fits each game and board without becoming monotonous. Every mode and board is easy to pick up and play with anyone, anytime.. Island Tour is a perfect balance of old and new that keeps the game fresh with playing styles to meet every need.

    It was nice to have a brief but satisfying match while out and about.

    Nintendo is a master at finding a specific target audience and offer them exactly what they want, sometimes even with a little less quality than usual. Mario Party: Island Tour does just that, speaking to the more casual audience among the owners of Nintendo 3DS.

    Board game enthusiasts will find themselves bored quickly, the average player will only break it out when there are friends around—which is the point, and I guess with friends the skill-based games aren’t too bad—and Party aficionados will be able to scratch that virtual itch.

    This doesn’t hold up even compared to previous portable Mario Party titles, and it’s one of the few Nintendo published titles you can safely skip this holiday season.

    One Person doesn't make a party, and when trying to make my friends play this with me they all instantly wanna switch to Mario Party 9 instead.

    Unfortunately, no amount of options can overcome the inane gameplay. I’ve defended the series in the past as harmless, dumb fun, but Island Tour is wholly unenjoyable.

    This game is fun and so underrated. Wtf is wrong with the game? I mean it's a friggin masterpiece and I personally think MPDS was awesomeThis game is fun and so underrated. Wtf is wrong with the game? I mean it's a friggin masterpiece and I personally think MPDS was awesome until this came out. Then I was like "Screw MPDS, I'm movin' on!" And some music were reused from MP9 (Which is another game you should get,) and I'm almost 100% done with the game. This game is a 10/10 imo best Mario Party franchise EVER put into an handheld gaming Nintendo 3DS. Expand

    I don't get the hate for the Mario party games, i'm actually kind of a fan of them. They might not be as good as the Super Mario Galaxy gamesI don't get the hate for the Mario party games, i'm actually kind of a fan of them. They might not be as good as the Super Mario Galaxy games but they are still a lot of fun, especially with a lot of people playing with you. This Mario Party title succeeds at what I wanted good new mini games and a added multiplier that is a great add on. It is a improvement on Mario Party DS. Expand
