Mario party was the first of its kind, a game filled with the famous Nintendo characters. All of your favorite characters are in one place: Mario, Peach, Bowser etc…all competing to see who ends up with the most stars.

This game is a great way to spend family night, or make a boring get together with friends more lively. Mario Party is a virtual board game where players take turns hitting a dice block, and competing with each,other in over 56 mini games. The game does have one draw back, a common maneuver on the controller was to rotate the analog stick as fast as your hands can move. Unfortunately it caused many players to develop blisters on their hands. Nintendo received numerous complaints, and eventually remedied the situation by providing gloves for anyone who needed them.

This game is a classic, if you have played the more recent Mario Party releases and not Mario Party 1, I suggest you give it a try. If you are into classic gaming, you will greatly appreciate the graphics and nostalgia of this great game, the beginning of a best-selling franchise. – Read the rest of the article here from Classic Console Magazine (courtesy of Old School Gamer)!
