  1. Adds a few nice modes to the Mario Party series, but if you already own "Mario Party 4" there is absolutely no reason to upgrade.
  2. Waking up bleary eyed the next day, our mouths taste like dry Toads and the room smells of Peach. But that won’t stop us going to Mario’s for another party, with so much to do if he threw a party every day of the week we still wouldn’t get ‘board’.
  3. The added Super Duel Mode (which would also be good online) brings a new aspect to the title. Bottom line, despite its shortcomings, Mario Party 5 proves once again why the Nintendo Gamecube is the system to own for multiplayer fun.

The mini-games are a lot more and have a bigger variety, and the different maps are actually fun to play on. The game made tweaks and now doesn't lack as much as Mario Party 4. Because of that Mario Party 5 is worthy party entertainment game, Possibly one of the better ones on the Game Cube. Full Review »
