Mario Party for family/non-gamers?


Recommended Posts

I need to make a decision quickly (say in the next 3-4 hours), I've never played Mario Party, but I'm looking to get a game specifically to play with my family over the holidays. Would anyone recommend Mario Party for non-gamers?


Is Mario Party 5 really any better than 4, or is either a good choice?

If they are willing to play video games, then yes yes yes.


Mario Party is very accessible, easy to figure out, and a LOT of fun.


I haven't played 5, but 4 is a great game, especially Duo Dungeons, that is one fantastic mini-game. Neither should be played with less than four players though, so I've been told. I can see that. You need max players to get the most from the game, otherwise you're stuck with a comp player (zzzz).


If these people could pick up and play, say, Mario Kart, then they are already more advanced than MP needs them to be. Simple gameplay, simple instructions, good fun.


If you don't have your Zelda disk yet, I'd say get MP5 and then MK:DD ;).
