    Super Mario Party is a perfect collection of fun and addictive mini-games.

    Mario Party has seen its fair share of good and bad over the years, but Super Mario Party swings the pendulum back in the right direction. The return of the classic style is a welcome one, and the plethora of different minigames hit the mark more often than not. It would have been nice to see another board or two, but the assortment of other fully-fledged modes helps to mitigate that feeling.

    This isn’t a cash-grab with Mario's face on the front; this is a well-constructed and beautifully realised Mario Party game which takes the series right back to its roots, but without being a straightforward rehash. There are a few interesting ideas that feel a little bit underdeveloped, but on the whole Super Mario Party is a true return to form.

    Super Mario Party goes back to its roots and delivers just like it should. The vast number of different modes, really prevents any to shine the brightest, but the entire game is a small step back that greatly leaps forward. It makes us only more excited for the next entry. Something we haven't felt with the Mario Party series in ages...

    Super Mario Party could be the best game in the series. It perfectly utilizes the capabilities of the Nintendo Switch, providing a fresh and innovative iteration of what a party game should be. However, with the Switch’s Handheld Mode being deactivated and with a control system that rejects all other control input methods other than the Joy-con, it might not be enough to shine the way it should and win over the series’ veteran players.

    Terrific for getting a super party started. [Issue#206, p.80]

    It still suffers from the same problems that have plagued the series for years, and the online mode is disappointing, to put it mildly.

    Since Mario Party 9 the series changed a lot.

    I mean I don't think Mario Party 9 trash, I just don't like the new mechanics, and now, we have a Mario Party game that brings back the N64 formula. (and no, there won't be holes in your hands after you spin the analog frenectlny ;D)
    The Modes are fun, and ill main the new Partner Party Mode, in this you play with a friend as a team, against an other 2 people team. I also liked the minigames, they are more competitive, and the fact that the allies mechanic since from N64 leaves me satisfied.
    The Online is a great idea, but you can only play minigames online.
    I still don't recommend you guys buy the Online service until Mario Maker 2.

    SO...I GIVE THIS GAME A...well if you actually don't see the nine there...welp, I give a 9 out of 10

    I actually think that this is better for a party gameplay, not a solo gameplay I mean, Mario party is meant to be for friends right?? well its written in the box "party".

    Any ways, the solo gameplay is...kinda ok but is like...
    is not too big the "story mode" its not certain type of a actual STORY MODE...you just need to play all modes, all maps and when you play all the maps in a mode you win a gem.
    well I guess I gotta go...

    OKEY

Sin embargo, me parece que contiene muy pocos tableros, y con jugar unas cuantas veces, ya te aburre la poca variedad. Expand
