    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.

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

Finally back to a more classic style. The mini-games are really fun in this one, i love how they used the joy-con function for the mini-game using the rumble feature was a great idea! I do wish the board would be a little bigger, they are kinda small and there is not a lot of them. However there is multiple mode to enjoy, the co-op 2 vs 2 is incredibly fun with friends, during our last game me and my friend were needed 5 stars to win and during the last turn we got lucky with perfect dice & x2 star card and we won the game with the bonus, it's really never over until it's over in this one. It's really fun with friends. Expand

The boards are meh, and there's only 4 of them. The game's items are also boring and it is too easy to get stars. The minigames are great though, and it does a better job at living up to the N64 Mario Party's than 10. Expand
