  1. Does exactly what it sets out to do, and as such it comes highly recommended to anyone with more than one controller to their name.

    It's kind of a letdown that the only major difference in MP4 is the sharp GameCube visuals. [Jan 2003, p.187]
  3. If your house is party central, you can’t go wrong with Mario Party 4. It’s got everything the previous games had (plus more) to keep GROUPS of two or more happily playing.
  4. While some mistakes were made in the making of this game, not enough were made to make it bad.

    Outside of... basic upgrades, there's nothing new about Mario Party 4... An absolute must-rent if you have a few friends over for the weekend.
  6. The GameCube version is, not surprisingly, the best looking of the four games, but it’s not the huge leap in visual quality it could have been given the dramatic improvement in technology.

    If anything, the game did show me how much torment I can put up with before breaking down, sobbing, and pleading to make it stop. [Dec 2002, p.125]

    Mario Party 4 es posiblemente la mejor innovación de Hudson sobre dicha franquicia.

    Pasamos de comandos difíciles de usar a controlar personajes de maneras muy prácticas.
    Los gráficos, los personajes, los minijuegos, todo, cambio para bien.

This one continues with the same rules and fashion as Mario Party 3 but with updated graphics and a different variety of boards.

    Most of the minigames are simple and a lot of fun but there are a small handful that are just dreadful.

    Great Gamecube game a must have for multiplayer nights!

My second favourite Mario Party storyline, with the exclusion of Mario Party 7. The mini games are still enjoyable and the graphics for a 2002 game are completely amazing. Highly recommended for playing with the family. Expand
