A fantastic addition for the 3DS. The graphics are crisp and utilize 3D well, while the music fits each game and board without becoming monotonous. Every mode and board is easy to pick up and play with anyone, anytime.. Island Tour is a perfect balance of old and new that keeps the game fresh with playing styles to meet every need.
Don't get me wrong; Island Tour's not particularly bad in any way; it's really not, but… unless you're hankering for a pretend board game and know a bunch of people who'll be keen for regular sessions, it's hard to imagine this being one of those purchases you'll look back on and think "that was the right decision."
I really love this mario party game, the 3d effect is ridiculously good, the minigames are very creative. The menu music is way too much appealing for my ears to listen. They’re are alot of game boards which is nice. I also like how it literally used all of the 3ds’s capabilities like the ar cards, gyro controls etc.. The character selection is decent and the collectables are cute. Overrated a solid mario party experience
Board game enthusiasts will find themselves bored quickly, the average player will only break it out when there are friends around—which is the point, and I guess with friends the skill-based games aren’t too bad—and Party aficionados will be able to scratch that virtual itch.
A very slow party game. The majority of the mini games are well done
and easy to learn and play, but all the waiting time is killing the
pace and joy of playing. A group of players could have some fun, but if
you're playing alone - stay away.
The charm of the Mario Party series was always bringing together a group of people in front of the T.V, to spend an enjoyable time going through boards and minigames. Island Tour, however, restricts that fun to the players by being a portable version. It's a title that disguises the features of other Mario Party games and offers them like they were new. It's a boring party with a serious lack of modes and online multiplayer.
This game is awesome. It's my 3rd Favourite Mario Party Game in the Series. The graphics are great for the Nintendo 3DS. The character roster selection is good for a handheld. The boards are fun to play on and each one is unique from one another. My 2 favourite Boards are Rocket Road (because of the design, it's Super Mario Galaxy.) and Star Crossed Skyway because of the Mini Star gimmick from Mario Party 9. Bowser's Tower is okay. The minigames are awesome especially Tanks a lot, Peep a Peepa, etc. The Bubble Gallery is great. Mario Party Island Tour is an awesome 3DS Game and you should go pick it up and if you hate MPIT, you're silly as JB.
Nintendo's getting Lazy, I saw it with Mario kart 7 now with this... This time they couldn't be bothered to do the extra bit of programming to make this an online multiplayer, or maybe the 3DS can't keep up with the times then they should put out a better machine that ****'s all about Top multiplayer games...
