Game Description & Reviews:
Entertaining to say the least. With the exception of battle mode this game is a nice addition to N64 video game library.
Obviously this is the third game in the Mario Party series. Mario Party is a fun cross between a board game and a minigame collection. The goal is to collect coins (mainly by winning minigames) to buy Stars at certain spaces on the board and then hold the most Stars at the end of the game. You can buy items at shops and use them to improve your standing... or mess with your rivals!
Or you can get other characters like Toad or Koopa Troopa to help you knock the other player out in the duel mode.
This time Princess Daisy of Sarsaland and Waluigi from Mario Tennis join the party.
One of the first mario party games I once played, what differs from the others is the dual mode where you can battle 1 vs 1, and each character has their own different partner (i.e. Mario has Koopa Troopa, Yoshi has Boo and Luigi has goomba). With this new feature it still retains with classic mario party formula, adding new mini-games and items, great game to past time with friends.
When Mario Party 3 came out I was already well engrossed into the Mario Party series, and was excited to try another one out. This game was very much like the other 2, but again with more improvements, but also a few flaws.
Mario Party is basically a board game, with the object of the game is trying to earn the most stars. You move around the board trying to reach stars before your opponents, and win mini games at the end of each turn.
The mini games were better than those of 1 and 2. The first 2 games' mini games were all quite similar, but all the games in Mario Party 3 are quite unique. I actually don't think there's any games in MP3 that were in 1 or 2. This was refreshing, not to mention the games were a bit better and more complex.
Mario Party 3's biggest downfall would be its courses. They were clearly running out of ideas - bad. The difficultly level for each course is high, even for the easiest courses. The only one I played for a long time was Chilly Waters (the easiest one) simply because it was the only one that I could successfully get through. And even then it was challenging. The courses themselves were also just so boring. Especially after playing the first 2 mario parties with such neat, original places.
This game was good, and definitely better than Mario Party 1. I just think they could've thought the courses out better, mainly.
Even though Mario Party 3 is a N64 game, it still stands as one of my favorite Mario Party games. The mingames in this game are just outrageously fun. Mario Party adds more characters, minigames, modes, and a singler player mode to the mix. It's really fun to play with up to 4 people and knowing Mario Party, the game isn't going to dissapoint.
