|Mario Party 3 is the third and final title in the series to appear on the N64. Like its two predecessors, Mario Party 3 is a board game, requiring players to roll a die and then move around the board. Coins are a vital commodity, and are used to purchase Stars as well as items. Landing on specific board spaces will trigger one of a number of events such as a battle mini-game or an event unique to the board you're playing on. The former requires players to place a number of coins into a pool, the majority of which will then be awarded to the winner of the mini-game, and the rest to the second place finisher. |
After each turn, players partake in a one-on-three, two-on-two or four-player mini-game in an attempt to win coins. At the end of the game (which ends after a pre-determined number of rounds), the player with the most stars is declared the winner. A plethora of new items, both rare and common, have been added to the title. Their functions range from stealing another player's items to taking you directly to the star on the board. Certain rare items will even allow you to take drastic measures such as lengthening or shortening the game by five turns. The game boasts 70 all-new mini-games in addition to new game boards. New characters Waluigi and Daisy also join the fold.
New to this third iteration is the Duel mode. Here, two players must roam around a small board annexing spaces as they go. Accompanying each player is a partner (which can be chosen from the likes of Boo, Goomba, Toad, Bob-omb, Whomp and others) who will demand coins after each turn. The exact amount will depend on the strength of each character. Should you be unable to afford your partner's salary, he'll quit, leaving you vulnerable to attacks from the opposing player's partner, and without the ability to attack the other player. When the number of turns expire, or one player loses all his health, the game is over.

I absolutely love this game. It is so much fun and I can play this game for awhile. There are great mini games to play, with 8 characters to choose from such as Mario, Luigi, Wario, WaLuigi, Daisy, Peach, Yoshi, and DK. This game is like a virtual board game. You can play up to 4 players which i like very much. There is also single play for someone just trying to figure out the game and learn how to play all the mini games. Sometimes it gets tough, depending on the difficulty of the CPU, but it is great fun and i am 100% satisfied with buying this game.
Mario Party 3 is a great game. Far as comparison goes, some different than mario party 2. If youre looking for it to be better than 2, it depends how you look at it. Theres a lot of new games, but you can tell this is around when they started running out of ideas. The game boards get more complicated, and it becomes more difficult with the inclusion of more chance occurances. Bigger learning curve if youre sitting around with friends. It's still a good lots of fun and there are some games right away you know are instant hits. Only real problem with the game is some minigames and stages have to be unlocked through single player, and its just not what this games about. If you already, got mario party 2 this makes a great added option to play on and off with it, if not Id suggest checking out mario party 2 first, then jumping into this later.
i played this game almost nightly with friends when it came out nearly 10 years ago. my current girlfriend doesn't have much gaming experience, so i got this for us to play together because it is fun and easy. and she doesn't like the more graphic games i have on the other systems, so this is much more to her liking. and because she is a kindergarten teacher, she uses this game as a teaching and recreation tool for her class (so i have bought more copies and nintendo 64 systems). but, more importantly, we spend time together, and have fun ganging up on the computer players, because as any long time gamer knows, the computer "cheats". excellent party game, and good for all ages and level of gaming experience. enjoy.
Well, i purchased this game because i wanted to experience my childhood all over again. Sadly, my former friends aren't available to play this game since i moved. Leaving that aside, it is as fun as i remember, or even more now that i understand English. as soon as i started playing i remembered the mini-games i loved as well as those that i utterly abhorred. Over the passage of time it appears that i lost practice, because the computer players seem to be a little bit harder than i remember them to be, but it's nothing that can't be beaten with some practice. I was lucky enough to procure this game as a bundle which included this game as well as Mario Kart 64 and Super Mario 64.
What can I say? This game is simply a classic. This game came out in the mid to late 90s and it's a great game for it's time. It's fun to play by yourself or with friends. There are mini-games of all kinds and it's a game many people can enjoy
