Mario Party 10

The first HD outing in the long-running virtual board game series offers three main modes this time round. In Amiibo Party, for which at least one person needs to own one of Nintendo’s NFC-enabled figurines, players move their pieces around a simple square board, with minigames coming thick and fast. The main Mario Party mode, on the other hand, is a bit of a misfire – we don’t particularly mind all players moving together in a vehicle on rails, but there’s far too much time spent on the board and minigame encounters can be irritatingly rare.

Finally, Bowser Party sees one player take on the role of Mario’s nemesis and use the Gamepad in creative ways to try and impede the progress of the other characters. Though this mode shows promise, the limited selection of minigames is disappointing. Series newbies will undoubtedly have fun with this, but for veterans like us, we were left wanting more.

Enjoyable enough, but not the series’ best.
SCORE: 3/5
