    Think fast and have a blast with a variety of ways to party with Mario™, Toad™, and more, on-the-go or on the couch!

    Break free of turn order and choose your path to victory in Toad Scramble, a mode with five wild worlds filled with bite-sized, open maps to play on.

    Blast across them in cannons, creep around haunted houses, or get a lift from Lakitu. You may get a chance to take down Bowser's mech!

    Team up with Yoshi™, Daisy™, Waluigi™ and other allies along the way.

    Pit your skills against friends by racing along in a gauntlet of rapid-fire minigames in Coinathlon.

    Cannon down Goombas, take out Shy Guys pinball-style, and even surf on a leafboard...but watch for Wigglers!

    You may even find yourself wandering a labyrinth of Boos. Partying is tough business!

      This Mario Party game is unlike the past Mario Party games, which is actually quite good in my opinion. Pluses + Every character moves at once. No more having to wait for everyone to traverse the map before you go. + The level of strategizing you need to do while traversing the board is enjoyable. It's a lot less linear, in that you can choose to go after coins or items, go after partner characters, or go for the bosses. All of these affect how many stars you get at the end, which dictate the winner. It's never a clear cut choice though. You really have to try and anticipate where your rivals will go and choose accordingly. This is my favorite aspect about the game, as it requires much more planning. + The minigames are fun. + The soundtrack is pleasant enough + Its actually quite fun to play even solo, with no friends. My only gripes are that it could use more mini games and that it is not as easy to get into for newcomers. It requires multiple plays to really get the hang of it, what with the new layer of strategy. Still, I definitely would recommend getting this if you're a fan of Mario party.

      This game seems to get a lot of medicore scores, but I think it's pretty good and worth buying if you like Mario Party games. Pros: -Minigames are fun, and theres a lot of them -5 difficulty settings -Lots of different modes, all playable with up to 3 other friends with 3DS's (not more than 1 cartridge needed) -Unlockables, including Diddy Kong, stages, and modes. -Everyone rolls their dice at the same time, making it faster paced and a game of predicting how other players are going to move -Progressive single player missions to unlock more stuff| -Balloon Rush mode is like mini-games every other turn, my biggest peeve with previous Mario Party games were playing boards and only going through like 3 minigames -Amiibo support Cons: -Maps don't have as many happenings '?'/event spaces as previous games -Players have to download an app called "Party Guest" on the eshop to get the best experience. It's free, but just an extra step, not a huge con but listing anyway.

      The past few mario party games have fallen short of the mark. Mario Party star rush finally shakes up the series in a positive way with a new mode that makes the game proceed much quicker than previous iterations. Gone are the days of waiting for others to roll the dice and move one by one, instead everyone rolls and makes their moves at the same time. This allows everyone to get to the mini games faster instead of losing interest while waiting. Another perk is the ability to share the game with other 3ds and 2ds owners, playing the game with only one cartridge! Everyone gets the full experience as it is not a watered down demo version. Highly recommend this game for anyone looking for a fun local multiplayer experience. There is no online mode for this game however.

      Mario Party has a long history of bringing people together for some nice clean fun. This title falls in line with the previous titles of offering fun mini games that will make you want to keep playing. The thing that keeps this title from being in an elite class is the lack of a true game board to play on. All players move at once across the board and it leads to confusion and just an overall ok time. If you want to explore the board you can try but if another player crosses the finish line too bad you are now playing to end the level.

      My son loves everything MARIO, so I picked this up on sale. One of the best features is that you can play part of the game with another player who has a 3ds - only one copy of the game is needed for this. I wish Nintendo did this for more of their games - though it seems as though they have abandoned this play mode on newer games. Lots of fun and definitely worth it when on sale.

      Better than the first Mario Party for 3DS

      I bought this game for my 6 year old son. He loves the Mario Party Games. He likes this one way more than the first one that was released on the 3DS. He also plays this one more than Mario Party on the Wii U. Personally, from watching him play all the Mario Parties, the flow of the game is better and the graphics are slightly better (even though I wouldn't say Nintendo games are meant to be the most visually wow'ing).

      game for 5year old son

      This game is so different from the one I used to play as a child on the nintendo 64, it took awhile for my son to become familiar with how to get into the mini games but he was able to navigate it. I wish these games would come with instructions on how to get started, nothing comes inside. This game would be so much better if there was instructions/directions on how to navigate throughout the game.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
