Mario Party Superstars is the latest game in the series. It reintroduces the classic mini-games and boards from the previous games. They are each updated with a fresh lick of paint while maintaining the classic combination of board-game progress and miniature multiplayer challenges. Unlike Super Mario Party, that added new mechanics like character-specific blocks, Superstars eschews innovation in favour of simple two-button mini-games, no motion controls, and no character-specific advantages.
The favourite mini-games from the series feature. Bumper Balls, Face Lift, Bowser’s Big Blast and Mushroom Mix-Up return. These, like other examples, keep things simple and approachable so that even those who don't play many games can join in and do well. You can even just opt to play a collection of mini-games in the Mt. Minigames mode.
Whether you get the latest version, or find a second hand copy to run on older hardware, Mario Party is a lot of fun for the family, and a great way to spice up board game style competition. Wii Party (Nintendo Wii) and Wii Party U offer a similar experience with a broader focus on mini-games and different game modes.
Players: You can play with 4 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. The game is played in short rounds that last just a few minutes. Sometimes all against all and sometimes players team up against each other. These are collected together in experiences that last around 40 minutes.
