    The first Mario Party Game introduced the series good with their new concepts, minigames and ideas. But not everything is perfect in the game such as the unfair dice that automaticly chose your number and some minigames were bad, But most of the boards have a very good soundtrack and good design.
    So i think Mario Party is a good game and you can have fun with your friends with it, but

    So i think Mario Party is a good game and you can have fun with your friends with it, but most of the other Mario party does it better and so it isnt the best Mario Party (My is Mario Party 2)

    This game is alright. A good start for the awesome series. The graphics are fine for N64. The minigames are pretty fun. The character selection is okay. The boards are great. Mario Party 1 is not the best in the series, but it is worth getting. The series started getting even better since 6.

    This game is okay. There are many better games but this game is worth playing. The boards were awesome,the graphics are great for the N64 and is the same as Super Mario 64. The character selection is okay. It is your choice if you want to get it or not.

    The game is fun, the voices are amusing, the mini-games are good, and the mini-games that involves rotating the analog stick leads me to say, "oooooowwwwwwww." If this game is going to be out on the Virtual Console, Nintendo should replace the analog mechanics with repeated button pressing

    Mario Party is one of the multiplayer games that are fun, yet frustrating games, control wise. The first two games in the series are probably the best to my opinion, in terms of mini-games and gameplay. There is not much to say play with your friends!

    It's a good game but it was all mini-games and the story sucked.

    Yes this game was very fun. not too challenging. i was one of the sorry souls to use the palm of my hand to spin around the joystick. beware, the joystick will dig a hole into your hand. fun game though :)

  2. A perfect, addictive blend of luck, skill, and strategy … anything can happen in a game of Mario Party, and that's what makes it such unique and enjoyable game. Throw your coat on the bed in the guest room, because you're going to be staying a while.
  3. Mario creates another new genre and further demonstrates why the N64 is the system for party animals. The first game of it's kind … for groups of three or four people, though, Mario Party is a Nintendo 64 classic.
