Let’s face it, the Mario Party franchise is in desperate need of a reboot. If I think back the last game is the series that I truly enjoyed was Mario Party 7. That’s over 10 years ago. Thankfully, after my initial concerns regarding motion control implementation in the mini-games Super Mario Party looked promising; going back to the four-player basics that sees players take turns to move across a variety of boards in search for those ever-elusive stars sprites. After only a few hours I realised that I was completely addicted to the classic feel and new improvements that Super Mario Party provided sees the party game titan finally return to glorious form.
Super Mario Party goes back to the traditional way of playing Mario Party back in the good ‘ol days, where four players take turns to steer their way around. Some newer aspects of the series have remained, however giving Super Mario Party a ‘best of’ overall feel. Most notably the ‘ally’ mechanic from Mario Party: Star Rush on the Nintendo 3DS makes a welcomed return. This allows players to increase their team of characters by collecting party members spread throughout board locations. The additional characters will add to your dice rolls as well as appear by your side during mini games.

Part of what makes Super Mario Party so engaging and enduring are the variety of game modes.
