Up to eight players must use the Wii-Remote and Nunchuk to complete each task before their opponent. A ringmaster has invited the Nintendo crew to enjoy his carnival.

PARTY TIME! Un-bias review of Mario Party 8.
Although repetitive in nature, the Mario Party Franchise has been a booming business since its first release on the Nintendo 64. With a new game coming out every year like a sports franchise, the series has seen little change over the past 7 titles. Finally, with the next-gen revolution we see some large changes that make this ever-popular party game legend worth picking up for a second chance...Here's the scoop...<br><br>Pro's...<br><br>-- Great graphical improvement from the last installment.<br>-- NEW Wii CONTROLLER MINI-GAMES (can't stress enough how cool that is)<br>-- Even with one other person, this game is playable for weeks at a time.<br>-- Intuitive board game design keeps the competition high up until the very last minute.<br>-- Familiar characters in familiar settings. Always a plus.<br>-- Cheeky sound effects and music are reminiscent of classic Nintendo gameplay.<br>-- Fun for ALL ages.<br><br>Con's...<br><br>-- The same basic concept as all the other Mario Parties.<br>-- NO ONLINE PLAY (really big bummer)<br>-- There are already tons of mini-game collections for the Wii.<br>-- If you have no friends, this game is REALLY lame to play by yourself.<br>-- Guaranteed to start a fist fight when you accidentily punch your friend in the jaw with your wii-mote.<br><br>For playing video games with more than one person, it doesn't get much better than this. The energy that comes out of competing in such worthless little mini-games with a friend is dumbfounding. If you have at least one friend, and at least one wii, pick up this game and play it til your arms are tired from waving them around like a lunatic to earn coins and stars. ^_^ Happy Gaming!Read full review

Mutliplayer is a blast!
I played Multiplayer for over four hours with three friends and the game was a blast. The mini-games were all fresh and didn't get repetitive at all, it was near-perfect. Doesn't even need the Nun chuck extension.

Great game and worth the money
I love the Mario Party series. This game was great and well done. This game is the reason I bought the Wii in the first place.I liked how there were so many new mini games in Mario Party 8 alone with some of the original mini games. I would recommend this as a good family game night.

One of the best in the series
Enjoy the game. Your typical Mario Party experience but 8 is one of the more memorable in the series. A must have for the collection.
