As many people may have found out, party games are never really that fun if you're playing by yourself. However, this game was suprisingly fun even by myself.
Graphics - simple, bright and fun. I really didn't have a problem with it at all - it was simple, but functional enough to not deter, but rather emulate gameplay. Moreover, each board had its own features, which visually tie well with the graphics.
Gameplay - with a huge variety of different minigames, it's quite hard to be bored with each game. And for people who just want to play the minigames rather than the game itself, there's an arcade mode. They all utilise the wii features in a unique way, yet remaining fun. I do suggest using the wristband though, it's there for a reason! (based on experience)
Music - fun and jittery, it really does match the atmosphere. Though there really isn't anything memorable, it is still definitely well written.
Overall, it is definitely one of the standouts of the Mario Party features. Something to get the kids, provided they're not too hyped up on FPSs just yet. Also something great for parities, as the name implies.
