|Mario Party 9 is a party video game for the Nintendo Wii. Like previous Mario Party titles, four players take part in each game, composed of a virtual board, and move around a variety of themed lands to collect coins and stars, while avoiding certain spaces. A new feature is that all four players move around in a car. Minigames will re-appear, and have a larger focus on the gameplay than they did in the previous game.|

|Long time Mario Party developer, Hudson is no more, finally absorbed by Konami, headquartered in the U.S. in Los Angeles, CA. In a similar mode of consolidation Mario Party 9 is now a product of Nintendo’s in-house ND Cube. Though many from the development team came from Hudson, Mario Party 9 is a reboot of sorts. Don’t worry it’s still a virtual board game with your favorite Nintendo mascots and lots of mini-games. In many ways, it feels much more like a real Nintendo game than recent Mario Party games that have felt almost like knockoffs....read the full review|

Great Game for family12/2/2013
Best family games ever!!!
I purchased the game expecting more of the same Mario Party game play I have come to enjoy for the last 10 years or so. Instead, I found that the mechanics of the game had been changed somewhat, which I found to be unexpected. The game is excellent, and I would recommend it, unless you are looking for more of the same action from the last 8 games.
If you didnt know mario pary games have been made by hudson but hudson went out of buisness a few years ago. So now nintendo took over the game. Litterly. you play in one ship where everyone moves, this is a bold step in the mario pary games and a good one. Buy it nwo
Great game for everybody6/1/2012
I really enjoyed the original mario party, and this latest edition really strengthens the series. I still find these to be the best games for large groups of people. The minigames are very addictive, despite not being that difficult. The graphics have come a long way over the years.
A much-needed reboot of the series, may disappoint5/22/2012
I've been an avid player of the Mario Party series, particularly with its involvement in a fierce rivalry between myself and my siblings. With that said, I am HAPPY with the adjustments that Nintendo has made to what has become a formulaic perhaps series.
this game was well layed out and is a lot of fun to play and enjoy for hours. i am looking forward to them putting out another one. the graphics are really good to and the difficulty is not to hard but not to easy . i would recommend this product to anyone wanting a fun game.
I used to play this game all day with my friends and I. This game is really fun and plus its cheaper to get it here. It's totally worth purchasing from this website! The games come in good condition too. I also love the mailing system, I get my products quick!
