Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

It's a pretty bold claim but for many Mario Party is the best multiplayer game series ever. No need for guns or complicated role-playing elements here; Mario Party is fun because it's simple. The original N64 game created an entirely new sub-genre--an unlikely combination of traditional board games and lots of ultra-simple arcade titles. The idea is that you travel around the board trying to collect stars, which must be paid for with coins, and you get coins by competing in mini-games, which occur at the end of every round. These mini-games generally don't last longer than a minute or two and many are based on old Game & Watch titles. There are over 50 mini-games in Mario Party 4, and each involves either a free-for-all, two players against two, or one against three (depending on the spaces on the board you land on at the end of your turn). These can involve anything from sky diving to basketball dunking, or car racing to hide and seek, and much more besides.

Admittedly, this basic description of the gameplay might not sound too exciting, and indeed if you're playing with less than three human opponents it is pretty tedious. But play it with the full complement of non-virtual rivals and the game's infinite capacity for cheating, backstabbing and ganging up allows it to completely transcend the humdrum sum of its parts. There's nothing terribly new in this third sequel except that the graphics are much improved and the mini-games are all new, but that really misses the point: get this game out at Christmas instead of Trivial Pursuit and you'll wonder how you ever got through family gatherings without it. --David Jenkins

Having never played Mario Party games before I wasn't sure what to expect from this one. Let me say I was pleasently surprised.
The game follows a 3D board game theme in which you take turns going round the board and collecting stars. At the end of a turn you partake in a short mini-game to get points and stars. At the end of the game it's the person with the most stars that wins the game. Its that simple!
This game really is a game for all ages, children will enjoy the colourful characters and the board turns whilst the more mature gamer will love competing against their mates in the mini games.
Overall this gets 5 stars for the multiplayer but I have to give it 4 for the single player.

Since the beginning the Mario Party series has consistently delivered enjoyable multiplayer party game action. But Mario Party 4 has got to be the best yet. Mario party 4 has the best graphics yet but the gameplay is just the same. The graphics of the characters are a bit like the graphics of the characters in Super Smash Brothers Melee but simpler. People who have spent money on the last 3 mario partys mightn't find enough in Mario Party 4 to bring them back but players new to the series should really think about buying Mario Party 4.

Love this game such a classic and so much nostalgia! would recommend buying this game if you have a gamecube and if you dont have one then buy one! The story mode is a load of fun you battle against 3 computer players to get the most stars and compete in mini games to get more coins and the winner or 'party star' gets to compete in another fun mini game to win a present for the characters birthday! a fun game and has many fun multi player options.

Great condition, both game disk and box, works perfectly well, would recommend getting, and if you do want the game instead of paying £80+ for the game pay what is deemed reasonable and buy this product from this company

After the 3 Mario party games on the N64, i thought this would be getting a little bit tired by now. How wrong i was, its great!
This game combines some of the gamecube's best graphics and sound,they set the tone for the game. With the best Nintendo characters taking part(Mario,DK,Peach,Luigi, etc.) things get really competitive. As you guide your character around the many wild boards to gain your prize, you'll experience the reasons why Nintendo is great. The colourful graphics and brilliant tunes create a real party atmosphere, all you need now are some mates to join you for this celebration to become party hero.
The only downfall in the game i the fact that there are only 50 mini-games, but then everyone has a few favouites that they'll return to time and time again to beat their last record.
The game will keep you locked to your controller for weeks as it has that 'one more go' factor that keeps a game alive. Nintendo has put alot of effort into improving the one player and it has worked well. Of course it will never be as good as the multiplayer which is the real highlight to the game.
Mario Party 4 can stand on its own as a single player game, however, i would recommend a rent to see how you like it first.
Overall the game is brilliant with only a few minor flaws which would never be enough to put you off buying it alone, so what are you waiting for, get the party started!!

All games are sopposed to be fun but this pushes aside all other competition easily. Mario Party is fun by yourself but get some mates round and you'll play for months. The mini-games are a riot and there isn't any really bad ones. Some mini-games are so fun they should be illegal. Dungeon Duos and Goal!!! are some of the best examples of fun mini-games. Some games can last for ages and the GC pad will have to be surgically removed before you go to bed. This is a game that no-one should be without, get it or miss out.

Mario Party 4 is not a complete clone of the last 3 Mario Partys. It is completely different, well, not exactly.. There are new boards, same characters, different mini-games.. so there is never a dull moment when you play it. I am currently hooked on Mario Party and I am a bit too competitive, I guarantee that you will be the same. Great Graphics--10/10, Great Sound--10/10, Amazing Game....I give it 100%...Buy it now and you will not be dissapointed, trust me.

This game is really a good laugh! I was a bit worried at first but now I play MP4 almost every day! It's a bit like Monopoly with mini-games, you may not like the sound of that but really, its completely crazy!
The grapics are very good though you wouldn't exepect so as with a board game you do not need very good grapics.
The multiplayer mode is very funny as one player shoots to 1st then lands on a bad space and falls to last.
The single player mode is not very good and that is why I gave this game a 4/5, a better story mode would have helped this game enourmousely.
Overall a very good game, try playing it with the whole family and you'll be crying with laughter!
