  1. I was hoping that Mario Party 5 would be better than last year’s effort. While certain aspects of the game are a move in the right direction, the overall game fails to please.
  2. I am convinced that eventually, somewhere in the world, Mario Party 5 will provide proof that a person can die from boredom while playing a video game. The single player mode has essentially no value.
  3. The only laughs come from knowing your friends are suffering the same punishment you are...They're cursing this to anyone within earshot, just like you. [Dec 2003, p.154]

Mucho mas largo también. Los tableros y los minijuegos eran realmente divertidos, jugándolo solo o con gente, no importa, este juego no es la obra maestra de Mario pero es mucho mejor de lo que parece. Full Review »
