 Super Mario Party 4, well that sounds real simple doesn't it? Well thats what I thought, then I played the game. Its not as easy as I thought, fact is some games are just down right insane. It plays alot like a board game in alot of respects, but with so many twists that it tends to get confusing after about 3 hours (trust me on this!)  I did enjoy this game alot, I'm not sure what you can do in single player mode since I have yet to try it, but I highly recommend multiplayer mode, and pick a friend with really good reflexes and get yourself something to drink a comfy chair to sit in (cause most games are long!) and prepair for the strangest games you'll see this side of the anything. The details on the characters can be neat, but on some its kinda iffy, like when you play as "Peach" (she used to be named "Princess Toadstool" for those of us who remember that!) and you play the mini game "manta rings" you can see up her dress (no joke!) only to discover the horror that she has shoes but no actual legs, its just this gap. After earning everything you're going to have alot more to do as this game can keep you there for hours and hours just trying to see and do everything. The graphics look nice, but lack in some areas, and the textures can be just as iffy, sometimes they're nice and crisp, and other times they can be washed out and low quality. Its not enough to keep the game from being fun, so go rent it and have a ball. (ESRB: ?)

Overall rating:
 
 Music:     9 
 Graphics:  10  (Nice attention to detail, no matter how small)
 Sound:      9  (Some things had "wrong" sounds)
 Gameplay: 8  (The cpu players are a tad unbalanced)
