    Mejor de lo que imaginé en un principio. 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.

    Mario Party 5 adds new elements that the series needed. 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.

    Mario Party 5 has new boards, new mini-games, and improved graphics. It continues the Mario party traditions. Even though it is the same old idea, it continues to be fun.

  1. Minigames, as always, tread a fine line between clever and stupid. [Jan 2004, p.87]
  2. The biggest enhancements come in the single-player experience - always the worst part of the previous games. This time, Nintendo has clearly put some thought into it and come up with a story mode that actiually has a point, rather than being a player-vs-computer rehash of Party mode. [Jan 2004, p.113]
  3. Were spirits to play a game while they waited in Purgatory, surely it would be Mario Party. It can take an age to get to the end, and the minigames are interspersed with a turgid board game section that tests the patience to its limits. [Jan 2004, p.109]
