Mario Party 3
Reviewed by Stephanie Horn
It's your turn. Instead of bashing up an enemy, you press A to hit the
dice block. Or maybe B, to use an item. Or heck, maybe you even want
to press Z to see the map. But whatever you DO end up doing, it won't
be anything violent, it will just be the simple play of a board game.
Mario Party 3 (MP3) is a great game that includes mini games, items,
and different, chooseable levels. It's definitely more advanced than the
other Mario Party games because it has new items, characters, levels,
and games. Interested? Read on!
Graphics: 10 out of 10
This game has good graphics! The characters are cool-looking (especially
my favorite, Waluigi), and the scenery for the board games look awesome.
It's better than the other MP games. There's not really much to say here,
so I'll move on.
Music and Sound: 10 out of 10
The music is great for this game! It's great music to do your homework
to. (Call me weird, but it's true! Try it!) The sound effects are cool too.
I like how each character has their own voice and sayings, even the
secondary characters. That's really cool.
Game Challenge: ? out of ?
Well, it really depends on how you set up the game. I mean, you could
have the computer guys on hard, give them a handicap of 9 stars and
you with none, do the hardest, and play all the games (including Curtain
Call- yuck!), or you could have the computer guys on easy, give you a
handicap of 9 stars and them none, do the easiest level, and play only
easy games, or you could play in the middle of the two. You're really the
one that makes the game challenging or easy, so I'm not rating this one.
Game Play-Fun: 10 out of 10
This game is fun! I mean sure, Curtain Call and Popgun Pickoff can really
make you want to just turn the game off, but every game has one thing
you hate. (With Mario Party 2 it was Honeycomb Havoc- I hate that
game!) The board games are fun too. I, personally, like Action Time,
which is an event on each board where you have to do something at a
certain time, or else something bad happens. (Like in the snow level,
you have to press A right before the snowball hits you, or else it will
move you to a different part of the board.)
You can bring on the frustration yourself. Like I said in game challenge,
you decide how hard the game is.
Replayability: 10 out of 10
There's always something new to do! I got this game on my last birthday
(September 12), it's like almost 8 months later and I'm JUST finishing
up the Story Mode. I'm on the last Star Stamp. There are always new
mini games to find, new levels to get, new cheats to work out. I love
this game so much!
Game Value: 10 out of 10
Yeah, it's worth the money! If you just rent it then you won't get to
have the "full experience." Getting new levels, finishing the story
mode, and all that jazz. You'll never get bored with this game because
there's always new things to do! I would highly recommend this to
everyone. (Unless you like sport games.)
Overall: 50 out of 50
Overall, this game rocks! Don't believe me? Just read through this
review again. No, you don't have to. But you should give this game a try.
