    All luck, no skill.

    Another Mario Party, and another repeat. Mario Party 8 isn't different than any other Mario Party. It's still a board game and it's still about luck, not about skill. When I rated the difficulty hard, I didn't mean t... Read Full Review

    Eight isn't all that great.

    First off, this game isn't bad, but its not great either. This (along with the title) has party game writen all over it. While, you can't deny that the plumber still has some moves, the moves are getting alittle stale. T... Read Full Review

    Mario Party 8 is way too much like its ancestors.

    Mario Party 8 seems like deja vu at times, while utilizing the Wii Remote's motion sensor technology, it repeats the same game patterns, play boards, do a single player challenge, or play minigame mode to win points to s... Read Full Review
