Mario Party Island Tour Review

Mario Party! You love it. We love it. Everyone loves it up until the point that someone gets a bonus star for landing on the most green spaces and manages to win a two hour game without ever placing first in a single mini-game. Then we hate it. In fact, those are the two biggest flaws in Mario Party: it’s inherently random nature and incredibly long play time. Combined, they take a simple board game and turn it into a rage fest. Luckily, Nintendo realizes this is a problem and has tried to fix it in their latest Mario Party release, Mario Party Island Tour for the Nintendo 3DS.
