    On their own they pose no real threat to players of average skill, but pit four such players against one another and watch the tension grow.

    There's not really all that much new content in Mario Party 6 save for the microphone novelty, but in the end the final product feels more polished and enjoyable than both previous efforts released on the GameCube.

    Six boards and four gameplay modes give players plenty of options and hours of non-stop partying. [Feb 2005, p.113]
  4. Multiplayer mode is a blast, however single-player mode is useless when compared to the aforementioned.
  5. Not the greatest party ever. This series is in desperate need of a fresh injection of originality. [NGC]
  6. Truly a multiplayer game that should be experienced by more than one person.
  7. Offers too much tedium and not nearly enough fun, mic or no mic.

    The night and day feature, plus the star bank, and the different board features rock. The orbs are put to better use in this verison than 5. The night and day feature, plus the star bank, and the different board features rock. The orbs are put to better use in this verison than 5. My greatest rave though is the quicker loading time and time between screens. It's more real time and wow do the graphics jump off the screen! Expand
