Product Description

Grab your friends and family and captain the crew to victory!

The party is back and bigger than ever in the Mario Party 9 game for Wii, featuring all-new ways to play! For the first time in the franchise, boss battles crash the party and challenge players to compete to defeat a common enemy. In addition, players now travel across stages together in a vehicle towards a common goal - overcoming obstacles, battling bosses, and collecting Mini Stars stolen by Bowser and his minions. Featuring 80 new minigames, adventurous new stages, and all-new ways to play that blend cooperative and competitive action for up to four players, Mario Party 9 is the perfect way to get the party started.

Features:

  • For the first time in the Mario Party franchise, each stage culminates in a Boss Battle. Collectively, players must combine their strength to defeat classic foes such as Bowser and King Boo while still playing competitively to boost their own individual scores.
  • In another first for the series, players ride across stages together in special vehicles. Players take turns as Captain of the vehicle by hitting Dice Blocks to move the party forward, hoping to land on lucky spaces. The vehicles also help to streamline game play and keep everyone involved in the action.
  • Unique Captain Events on each stage give players a new way to change the shape of the game.
  • In Mario Party 9, each themed stage has a clear destination point but with multiple paths along the way, so no two games will play the same. From Toad Road to Boo’s Horror Castle, players will encounter a wide variety of familiar Mario franchise elements in new environments that can be enjoyed solo or with friends.
  • Includes 80 outrageous new minigames that find players making pizzas, escaping haunted mansions, and racing snowmobiles.
  • No time to play through an entire stage? New minigame modes let players enjoy the action in smaller chunks of time. They can hone their skills at any minigame in Free Play mode or try the Extras mode that includes Goomba Bowling and the puzzle-based Castle Clearout.
  • Every time they play, players can earn Party Points that are used to unlock special items and features.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The main reason Mario Party 9 plays a bit different to the other Mario Party games is because it was developed by the same team who gave us the most excellent Wii Party with Wii Remote Controller - Black. In Party mode there are six exciting boards for you to play on which are Toad Road, Bob-omb Factory, Boo's Horror Castle, Blooper Beach, Magma Mine and Bowser Station. There are 80 new minigames for you to enjoy as your group work their way around the board on all different types of fun transport and some include great boss battles. You may travel together as team but you will be battle it out like enemies.
The game starts off with 10 charcters for you play as which are Mario, Toad, Luigi, Koopa, Peach, Birdo, Daisy, Wario, Waluigi and Yoshi. When you complete the solo mode you are given Shy Guy and Kamek to play with as well.
As you play Mario Party 9 you are given party points which you can use in the Museum to unlock DK's Jungle Ruins stage, new vehicles and stars in the sky of Nintendo characters etc.
The Extras mode lets you play Shell Soccer in which you are split into two teams for up to four players. The first team to take out all seven of their opponents Goombas wins.
Goomb Bowling plays a little like Wii Sports Bowling but you have to try and hit all the Goombas down which move from left to right.
Castle Clearout plays a bit like Puzzle League (Nintendo DS) in that you need to connect six or more marbles of the same colour which clears a group and watch the fireworks go off!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Family Fun 21 May 2012

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Mario Party 9 is a good family game, my kids ( aged 4 and 7 ) both love it. I like the fact you can do story mode or party mode but i do feel that the games are getting easier to play - good for the kids but not so much the adults.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Great game for the entire family.

Loads of games to play. There are five modes of play party, mini games, solo, museum and extras. Up to four people can play.

The controls are easy to learn. My kids aged 9 and 7 love it because it's great entertainment for family time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Party with a Difference 18 July 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bit of a divisive one, this. For the first time since 1998, the rules of Party have changed. Out goes coins for buying stars, in come the somewhere-inbetween mini stars; out goes travelling around the board on your own, in comes a kart in which you travel together; out goes travelling the board in circuits, in comes a linear path. Even the regular minigame every turn has gone to be replaced by randomly occurring ones, plus some bigger-scale boss minigames.

Whether or not you think this is a good thing is a matter of choice. Personally, I don't like and fear change but even I have to admit that its predecessors have essentially been repetitions of the same game: for most people, this will be a welcome break.

The game is leaner and much quicker for it. No longer must players sit through reams and reams of prattle and wait while computer characters spend an insufferable amount of time mulling over every option presented to them. It rattles along at a fair clip and you should be able to get several games in in a couple of hours which will keep the type who never finish Monopoly happy (I've yet to find 4 people wiling to play a 50-turn party all the way through).

The troubles are two-fold: first, the tactical element that gave depth to proceedings has been all but purged. Players are limited to using special dice to try and land on a desired space or choosing between two short and slightly different paths. Second, more stars are earned through luck on the board than skill in minigames (or sometimes luck in minigames). Together these mean that everyone has a chance of winning but victory feels mostly arbitrary. You sometimes feel you may as well have played snakes and ladders or even high-card draw.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mario Party 9 6 Mar 2012
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Well after a long wait it arrived Mario Party 9 is here, and oh dear! what a disapointment, its just not the same as previous 8 titles that we have come to love.
There seems to be no competition for stars, you just collect the mini stars (NO COINS) then lose the lot 'as I did' at the very last turn, nothing to bank, nothing save, nothing to buy & collect. The mini games are just too easy, and clearly not enough on them. They have taken all the competition out of the game, it used to be a board game on the the screen which was great you could run away the game if you had been lucky with the dice, now you opponents shake the dice for you and all move togther. The game its self is also over too quickly no option for turns 10-50 like in previous editions, 3 of us played ended in 35mins. I hope if MP 10 returns then we will go back to the old format, for me its just no the same,

I have waited for this game for a while now but Nintendo have spoiled it by taking the competition out of it not to mention the list of game options. Don't get me wrong it's great for the kids - bright, colourful and keeps them entertained but mp8 could entertain the adults to as it was more like a board game on the telly. This isn't bad by any means if you get it for a good price (no more than £25 if new item) but I would always recommend mp8 first if you haven't got it yet and this as an alternative if you have or even try wii party if your after a family game thats for everyone.
