Mario Party: Star Rush

Mario Party was starting to get stuck in a funk, at least as far as faithful, die-hard fans were concerned and Nintendo didn’t really seem to have any interest in going back to the roots of what made Mario Party such hit in the first place. However, when they decided to change things up, remove the car-based gameplay, and try something new with some elements from Mario Party of old…even fans like myself, who were losing hope and interest, took notice of this new change. Say hello to Mario Party: Star Rush!

I was really happy that both Mario Party 10 and Island Tour were over with at this point, because now I could start focusing on some games where I at least had some positivity to share with people, and my first impressions of Star Rush were generally very positive. I don’t think I would take it over a majority of the original 8 installments, but it was a pretty interesting take on the Mario Party gameplay and I applaud the effort that Nintendo decided to take with this one.

Mario was big back in the 90s, so it’s no surprise that Interplay decided to do a game where you can play a small collection of board games with Mario…right?

NO! I AM NOT DRUNK! I SWEAR TO GOD! Ok, so it doesn’t sound like much, but I did find some humor with this game back in the day and I decided to bring it back for a small weekend project. After all, I was smack dab in the middle of Pokemon Gold at this point and I needed something a little less serious to make me feel better about the hours and hours of life I spend grinding Pokemon levels. At least you can say….it’s nice short watch, I suppose.
