IGN has reviewed Mario Party: Island Tour and has given the game a score of a 5.5/10. While the review praises the ambitious download play and gameboard designs, it trashes the minigames and the new single player mode. Aggregate site Metacritic has the game at a score of 64 with eight reviews having come in. Have you played Mario Party: Island Tour for the Nintendo 3DS yet? What are your impressions of the game?
Mario Party: Island Tour’s single-player campaign is laughably bad, and the ambitious, content-rich multiplayer options and unique game boards are ultimately dragged down by mostly boring minigames and unfortunate system-jerking motion control. A group of friends might only have fleeting good times with this collection.
