    This is an amazing game. This one was the best at the time it came out. The graphics were great for the time. The minigames are fun. The character selection is great. The boards are awesome. This is one of my favourite Mario Parties and if you have a GameCube, this game is worth getting.

    This game is awesome! The graphics are great for the game's time period, the minigames are very original, and the game board integration is well planes. I also love the 4-team party mode. This is my favorite of all of the Mario Party games!

    One thing some casuals don't understand is why some gamers pick Nintendo's console instead of a playstation. Well, of course one of the main points is the "play with friends support" with a great quantity of games featuring 4 players on 1 screen (Mario Parties, 1080º: Avalanche, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles, F-Zero GX, Metroid Prime 2, Geist, Harvest Moon: Poem of One thing some casuals don't understand is why some gamers pick Nintendo's console instead of a playstation.

Well, Mario Party 7 makes a big step and offers 8 player support in the same screen at same time with only 4 controllers. That's nothing new because it really appeared in Micromachines 64, based on the GameGear's micromachine multiplayer (and I'm sure some other game have used this idea) but it's really worth that the Mario Party saga uses this idea. If Mario Parties were funny with 3 friends, think about 7 friends. If there is something bad in this game isn't the 1 player mode because it's really a multiplayer game. I see 1 player mode just like an addition instead of a game mode. There are some details could be improved like (in my opinion) get Waluigi out of the saga (I hate it), and definitily remove the weird capsule balls that makes the game in boards slower and gives more chances to luck than hability. Board game seems too slow to you? Then play directly to the minigames, of course you can. Expand

  1. The seventh iteration crams even more mini-games than you care to count, but sadly shies away from offering something truly innovative for loyal Mario fans.
  2. Mario Party 7 probably is the best game overall in the franchise to date; however, even with that being the case it simply doesn't do enough new to warrant a definitive purchase.
  3. Basically Mario Party 6, but with less fun and [fewer] new ideas.
