What Gamespot Users have to say about Mario Party 9

  • User Rating 8

    Mario Party 9 is a great party game to play with friends, even if there was a five year hiatus gap.

    It's been a while since a new Mario Party game came out. In case you don't recall, the last Mario Parties that came out in 2007 were 8 and DS. Those games were still a lot of fun to play with friends ...

    This was well worth the 5 years we had to wait for it. This is a great game to play with up to three of your friends!!!!

    Story Mode: Nothing too special, you just play each of the boards collecting mini stars and reaching the boss at the end. You don't have to win to get to the next board, just Shy Guy and Magikoopa (Ka...

    Ive always loved mario party and i thought this one was pretty good too.

    I have liked all the Mario Party games with the exception of 4 and 7 because those are the only ones I have not played, so I can not say if i like them or dislike them. While the mini Games feel a l...

    While it was a fine addition to the mario party series, it added some unneeded gimmicks that hurt itself.

    By changing the series, Mario Party 9 becomes the one guest everyone wants to see on any party's invitation list

    Rated on April 04, 2012 by Pierst179

    Stale has, unfortunately, become a sad synonym for the Mario Party series. Little did we know that what started back in the early days of the Nintendo 64 era as a rough, but still fun, combination of ...

    A refreshing new idea to the worn-out Mario Party series, but so full of problems it's hardly enjoyable.

    Story 6/10 The single-player story is cliche and full of holes. Your selected character is watching some "mini-stars" in the sky with the rest of the crew, when Bowser suddenly steals them for undisc...

    Mario Party makes a huge return with #9. With fun mini-games, and the multiplayer will make you keep playing more.

    Mario Party 9 is a fun, though slightly problematic, new take on this classic series.

    Rated on July 25, 2012 by Suti64

    If my past reviews haven't made it clear, I love the Mario Party series. The first three games on the N64 are some of my favorite games of all time. They were perfect for a console that was the king w...

    Great graphic, great minigames and really good multiplayer game. But only good playing multiplayer mode.

    The game is fantastic, like the other mario party games is has minigames, wining new characters and of course using the dice each round but this time they changed some things like players move all at ...

    The first "Ouro - Boros" review, and it's a complete pile of crap!!!

    Rated on May 20, 2013 by BorosandJerk

    Ouro is my name, and Boros here. We're here to talk about a game near and dear to our hearts. Ouro is very fond of the Mario Party series, and Boros thinks that it is almost a fecal waterslide all th...
