Mario Party 8

April 28th, 2009 by Wii Game Reviews

Roll up, roll up! The carnival is in town and it’s time to party! Join Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, DK and more of your favourite Nintendo characters as they compete across five brand new game boards and more than 60 new minigames to win the coveted prize: a year’s supply of candy! But Bowser isn’t about to let them get away with it… For the first Mario Party on Wii, up to four players roll virtual dice and move around the game boards (ranging from a haunted house to a moving train and a treasure island) before competing in crazy minigames that make full use of the Wii Remote; such as tightrope walking, skipping, snowboarding, boat rowing, lassoing and even cake decorating. As well as the main, madcap multiplayer game, Mario Party 8 also features a special single-player only mode, a minigame-only mode, a bazaar where you can unlock new minigames and goodies, and a mode made specifically for playing as Mii characters!

Mario Party 8 Features

  • Play with motion control: Mario Party 8 Players pick their favourite Mario characters and row their way through a river race, punch a statue to pieces, steer race cars, mopeds and go-karts and handle a balancing pole while walking a tightrope.
  • Play using the Pointer: Party up and Shoot at Boos in a haunted house, rag and drop toppings in a cake-decorating competition, select the correct answers in game show challenges.
  • Play using the Wii Remote’s buttons: Players jump and pummel their way through a football brawl, hop and run across a field of spinning platforms.
  • Dozens of new Mario Party minigames: Mario Party 8 also includes dozens of new minigames, six new party boards and many new party game modes. In a series first, players can transform their Mario characters into many forms, such as player-smashing boulders and coin-sucking vampires. Mario Party 8 also includes “extra-large” minigames like Star Carnival Bowling and Table Menace. One to four players can play Mario Party 8, each with a Wii Remote.
