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.

You can’t keep a good Mario spin-off down, and when Mario Party started vanishing off the face of the Earth, here comes Mario Party 9 to remind us that the party isn’t over yet. Mario Party 9 was the first Mario Party game in four years (after the eighth game) and with it’s return, brought a number of changes to the formula. Many fans questioned these changes, but when you get down to the nitty-gritty, the fun and mayhem of Mario Party is still quite in existence.

This project was a long-time coming, as many people expected this game to come to my channel in 2012, but due to my large commitment of taking on Fortune Street, I decided to use this game as a buffer in between the two halves of the Fortune Street project. This was a decision that was really rewarding and created, very easily, the biggest high point of my channel in quite awhile.
