I was given products in this post for review. To provide my honest feedback. I was not paid to write this review.
Many, many... MANY years ago my dad got my siblings and I a game cube. This was one of the first systems you didn't have to blow on the games to get them to work! (Come on every 90's kid remembers doing that) One of the very first games we got was Mario Party. I still have that game until this very day, and when my kiddos and I want to have a vintage game day we pull it out. Shhhh don't tell my siblings I have the Game Cube and games lol
Here is the thing about Mario Party, no matter what age you are it is fun. As a little kid I LOVED it as an adult (ish) I LOVE it. There is just something fun about an interactive board game and let's not forget those epic mini games.
And now Nintendo just released Mario Party Superstars on the Nintendo Switch! Meaning we can play this beloved game everywhere! Plus let's admit it, the graphics of newer games are just better then old school games.
A Superstar collection of classic Nintendo 64™ boards Calling all superstars! The Mario Party™ series is back with 5 classic boards from the Nintendo 64 Mario Party games. Race to get the most stars (and sabotage your opponents) on boards like the stellar Space Land or the spooky Horror Land! Party at your own pace by suspending a game and picking up right where you left off! The tides can turn quickly in Mario Party, so stay vigilant, partygoers. All modes can be played online*, too!
Play 100 classic minigames from the Nintendo 64 and Nintendo GameCube™ games and more in Mt. Minigames! Umm new mini games? Yes please :)!!
Try your hand at a superstar collection of minigames from throughout the Mario Party series. Whether you are saving up coins for stars in board game mode or enjoy one of the 7 modes included in Mt. Minigames, there is nothing quite like being the last one standing in Bumper Balls or the first team making it out of the darkness in Dungeon Duos. All minigames are played with button controls, so you can stick to the Joy-Con™ controller or bust out the Nintendo Switch™ Pro Controller or a Nintendo Switch Lite system.
Party with superstars near or far
Bring the party anytime, anywhere with same-system, local wireless, or online play. Use stickers to praise or pester fellow players as you race across the board collecting stars. All modes support online multiplayer, so you can hop in with friends for a few minigames or a marathon 30-turn match. Victory is just as sweet (and stealing stars is just as satisfying) from anywhere across the globe.
As I said before I like that new graphics. The maps are fun, and I like that there is a few to choose from. The mini games in my opinion are the high light of the game and with so many of them it feels like a new game every time we play. My boys enjoy choosing their character. My youngest son loves that he can play online. Sometimes we are busy and don't have time to sit down and play. No worries he just hops online and play with his friends from school.
