Mario Party 9 is unlike anything in the series before, although it seems familiar.

For those looking for the complete reinvention of the wheel will have to wait a bit longer. But Mario Party 9 has had enough tweaked in it to breathe some much-needed life back into the series.

Nice party game is filled with large amounts of enjoyable mini-games – the only cons are the great dependency on luck and missing online multiplayer. [Apr 2012]

The randomness of some of the board effects can be frustrating; it's akin to Nintendo grabbing the chess board mid-match and throwing it across the room. It doesn't seem fair and there's nothing you can do about it except enjoy the experience while it lasts. And the kids liked it.

There's little reason for the lonely man to pick this up. [Issue#121, p.117]

Excellent game to play with your kids and really strange friends. Minigames work better than usual because they use less motion controls and focus more on fun ideas. [Apr 2012]

Mario Party 9 is the series' best episode after the fourth. The new elements introduced, like the players moving all together, are not completely convincing, but the formula designed hanging around funny minigames and 3 pals around still works.
70

Exactly the kind of the change needed by the franchise, although this new game depends too much on luck and randomness.

Another worthy release in a successful series. They've stuck to a tried and true formula: beloved characters, fun, variety and a fast pace, which is easy to play for the whole family.
