Mario Party: Island Tour is a party video game published by Nintendo in November of 2013. It is the third Mario Party handheld game, as well as the first of three to be released for the Nintendo 3DS. It was announced by Satoru Iwata in April 2013. This was also the game in the series that uses AR and Streetpass.

Plot

Mario and his friends receive a letter saying that they should join the party. Suddenly, the bubbles trap the characters and then they were sent to a place called Party Island.

Bad Qualities

  1. Repetitive gameplay ranging from mediocre to just plain boring.
  2. For a game on a console that has started to heavily support online play, this game lacks Online Play.
  3. Bowser's Tower isn't that fun of a solo mode when compared to the previous games. You simply fight bubbly clones from other characters in mini-games rather than on boards.
  4. You strangely can't play Shy Guy Shuffle on single-player even though it would be easy to program the AI for the board.
  5. The board gameplay does not play as the original titles play, which was a large disappointment to fans. Alongside, a lot of the boards became more luck based than skill based, with the worst offender being Banzai Bill's Mad Mountain.
  6. There's no 2 vs 2, duel, battle or even 1 vs 3 minigames.
  7. Speaking of minigames, the minigame "Three House" is a rip-off to Puyo Puyo.
  8. The Boss and AR mini-games weren't better at all, and they are extremely easy to win.
  9. The game reuses numerous songs and even characters voices from Mario Party 9.
  10. On the topic of characters, there are only 10 playable characters.

Good Qualities

  1. The infamous car mechanic has been temporarily removed here.
  2. Boo returns as a playable character since Mario Party 8.
    • You can also play as Bowser Jr. after finishing Bowser's Tower. Depending on your view, it marks the first time that someone similar to Koopa Kid has been playable since Mario Party 6.
  3. Decent soundtrack.
  4. Good voice acting.
  5. Some decent minigames, such as The Choicest Voice, where you humorously do impressions from characters in this game.
  6. The graphics are good for a 3DS title.

Reception

Mario Party: Island Tour was met with mixed reception from critics and a mixed to negative reception from gamers with IGN giving it a 5.5/10 and Metacritic giving it a 57/100.

This is my least favourite Mario Party because it reuses music.

It takes more than just reusing music to dislike a game.

That's okay. I've never played this, but I liked Mario Party 10. At least the Bowser minigame.
