  1. The perfect example of a good game that just takes a bit too much from other games than it should.

    Will quickly be overshadowed and fade into obscurity. [Nov 2002, p.134]

    The difference between the two games is night and day, with "Mario Party 4" being the better of the two by a wide margin.
  4. There are virtually no sound effects or voice samples included at all, leaving the dire music to keep your ears entertained. Add weak animation and bland graphics to these other failings and you have a title almost totally lacking in charm and appeal.
  5. Nintendo Power

    A Mario Party-style shindig. [Sept 2002, p.164]
  6. The three boards are each a little on the dull side and the play mechanics are uninspired.
  7. Just another shallow party game.
  8. 49
    Though it has the formula down, it has failed to capture the incentive to play and the depth to sustain continued play.
  9. Pac’s newest adventure involves playing cheesy boards and minigames with his sappy friends (obviously his wife’s pals), who look like they hopped out of a Barney video.
  10. Party game gone to hell thanks to its poor execution.

    This game, although it has a lack of voices, is a very good game. Really!

    Namco has some really cool characters but surprisingly none of them are seen here. Clearly, what you got here is a mario party rip-off. You Namco has some really cool characters but surprisingly none of them are seen here. Clearly, what you got here is a mario party rip-off. You travel a board collecting coins, tickets, and a bunch of other useless crap, and at the end you just want to waste your tickets on buying those very fun mini-games. Board game sucks...mini-games fun. Full Review »
