Mario has been around for what seems like my entire life. Okay, not really my entire life, but the majority of it. I loved playing Super Mario Bros. when I was a kid and am so excited when I see my kids excited to play any of the new Mario games that are out. As soon as my son saw Mario Party 9 was coming out, he was asking for it.
Diego gives it 100 thumbs up! Since we gave him the game to play, he has been non-stop. He loves it and wants to play it every chance he gets. He loves all the mini-games that you play. There are 80 different ones on this game, so there are so many to choose from! I have asked him time and time again which are his favorite, but he can never choose.
It’s a typical evening in the Mushroom Kingdom and Mario and the gang are out enjoying the beautiful view of the Mini-Stars through a telescope. Just when everything seems at peace, the Mini-Stars begin to disappear into a spiraling vortex. None other than Bowser is at the other end, this time plotting, and succeeding, at taking all the Mini-Stars for himself. Now it’s up to Mario and the gang to reach and defeat Bowser by playing through various board maps and mini-games!
What is so neat about Mario Party 9 is that you can play as Koopa, Shy Guy, and Magikoopa/Kamek. My son thinks it is so cool to be able to be Koopa. I think they did a great job on this game. My whole family has fun playing it, and my 6 year old is obsessed (but he LOVES video games). It keeps everyone entertained, which is always great in a video game. It isn’t too easy for the adults to be bored or too hard for the 6 year old to be frustrated.
