Graphics and Sound

The graphics and sound in Mario Party DS are impressive and on par with the quality of other Mario Party games. The game features bright, colorful visuals and catchy music that complement the gameplay well.


The gameplay in Mario Party DS follows the same formula as previous Mario Party games. Players move around a game board, collecting coins and stars while playing various mini-games along the way. The game offers a single-player Story mode and a multiplayer mode that allows up to four players to play together using just one game card.

The mini-games in Mario Party DS are creative and fun, with a good mix of new games and classic games from previous Mario Party games. The game also includes some mini-games that utilize the Nintendo DS touch screen and microphone, adding a unique twist to the gameplay.

One of the significant differences in gameplay from previous Mario Party games is the use of the Nintendo DS stylus. Players use the stylus to roll the dice and move their character around the game board. While some players may prefer the traditional button controls, the stylus controls work well and add an element of novelty to the game.

The Plot

The single-player Story mode in Mario Party DS has a decent plot that involves Mario and his friends trying to save the Party World from Bowser. While the story is not the main focus of the game, it adds some context to the gameplay and provides a reason for players to keep progressing through the game.

Overall, Mario Party DS is a fun and engaging game that offers a good mix of gameplay and mini-games. The use of the Nintendo DS touch screen and microphone adds a unique twist to the game, and the single-player Story mode provides a decent amount of content for players to enjoy. If you're a fan of the Mario Party series or looking for a fun multiplayer game to play with friends, then Mario Party DS is definitely worth checking out.
