    OMG I LOVE MP10! THE GRAPHICS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CHARACTER ROSTER IS SO UNIQUE! I LOVE THE MINIGAMES AND PERSONALLY I THINK AMIIBO PARTY IS AWESOME! Also, on a side note, this a question for all of you, but how old were all of you guys when you joined the podcast?

    I love MP10! I have a review “box”, but I think it’s too early to give a review. I will say that I love the graphics, minigames, and boards. I hope there will be DLC because there’s only 5 boards with only 3 Bowser Party boards! 😉

    I bought Mario Party 10 early in the morning today, and have been playing it for several hours since. And I have to say… I’m not impressed. At all.

    I was expecting a major improvement over Mario Party 9, but it was just a slight improvement from it. First up is Mario Party, a.k.a. Car mode. Just like Mario Party 9, the car mode is really boring, with almost no luck or strategy required. I played all 5 boards, and I’m pretty sure I won’t be coming back to the mode anytime soon. Next is Bowser Party. Bowser Party is awesome… for the first 2-3 times. Again, once all the boards are played once, there’s no real reason to come back to it. But not only that, but Bowser Party is WAY too much in Bowser’s favor! Not only can Bowser catch up to you very easily (with the help of a re-roll, as well), but there are plenty of spaces that are made to power-up Bowser, too. Out of the 5 Bowser Parties I played, Team Mario only won once, with about 2 hearts remaining. Again, not much replay value, and Bowser can win extremely easily. Bowser Party was a pretty good idea, but not executed very well. Next is amiibo Party. I don’t hate amiibo Party, but it still puts the classic MP formula to shame. The boards make LOOK different, and have a few different events, but in reality, each board is the same square shape with the exact same space layout. I’d say buy only one amiibo for the board in amiibo Party. If you do this, amiibo Party is a pretty neat little mode. Sadly, not a whole lot of replay value.

    Now I’ll talk about some extra stuff. Don’t get me wrong, the minigames are still pretty fun, and the character roster is probably the best in the series, but there’s not a lot of extra stuff to do. Just a few cliché minigame modes and four bonus minigames. That’s pretty much it.

    And for those who don’t like to read, I’ll sum it up real quick: I didn’t like Mario Party 10. I may have liked it more than Mario Party 9, but I still don’t like it. I suggest you ONLY buy Mario Party 10 if you liked Mario Party 9. Otherwise, the game doesn’t have a whole lot to offer, and what IS there quickly falls into repetition and gets rather bland. I’m glad ND Cube tried something more with the car idea, but Mario Party 10 doesn’t do anything too exciting. Hopefully ND Cube makes some cool DLC, or my copy of Mario Party 10 is probably going straight back to GameStop.

    My personal Mario Party 10 score: 2 out of 5 Super Stars.

        All caps on and full with mindless anger?

        Bitch, you have no argument. And it’s our opinion Bowser Party is too easy. You could have different experience, but it doesn’t mean we’re wrong because we don’t have an opinion like yours.

          sorry for coming off that way :3

          • Luigiguy567

            Ok, I’m sorry, too. I just don’t like Mario Party 10 that much.
