Mario Party 5


GCG0020 - Developed by Hudson Soft Company, Ltd. and Published by Nintendo of America Inc., "Mario Party 5" was released for the Nintendo GameCube System (GCN) on November 11, 2003. Take mini-games to a new level, claim the three Koopa Kids' coins, and be the champion in Nintendo's "Mario Party 5." This game lets you jump in the sand to play beach volleyball and glide onto the ice ring to show off your ice hockey skills. Enjoy an epic adventure story with Frightmare, duel to victory in Whomp Maze, and battle to the end in Bill Blasters or Random Ride. Grab the free capsules from the capsule machine and make your way to victory."Mario Party 5," developed by Hudson Soft, features a total of 80 mini-games. Anyone who has played previous editions of the Party series will be familiar with the formula of rolling dice to travel around a board and win coins and stars. Players acquire coins by landing on spaces and winning mini-games, and buying a star costs 20 coins. The winner of a round is the person with the most stars. In-game happenings can shake up the standings for Mario and his crew at any time.The Mario Party games have always been fun for the whole family because they provide an engaging yet level playing field. Each mini-game gives all the players the opportunity to win. The random nature of the board movement also contributes to the democratic nature of the outcome. Spaces like Bowser and Donkey Kong can mix up a round in its final turns. Playable characters in the game range from the familiar Mario and Luigi to Toad, Wario, and Koopa. Mario Party 5 has a story mode where you fight Koopa enemies on a series of boards followed by a competition with Bowser, but the main draw is the multiplayer mode. The characters differ only in appearance, so everyone has a chance to win. The AI can fill in and control any unfilled spots on the player list for each game so there's always a full group playing. This Party game hits all the same high notes that previous entries in the series have by maintaining that same sense of accessible and friendly fun. It also takes full advantage of the Nintendo GameCube to add 3D backgrounds for the first time in the series. You can also insert this GameCube disk into your Nintendo Wii and Wii U to enjoy the same fun on a different system. The GameCube console itself works with TV resolutions of 480p or less.The Mario Party games are a long-standing Nintendo centerpiece because each one adds some extra features. This keeps it accessible for gamers at the kid level while staying innovative enough to be worth buying whenever there is a new release. "Mario Party 5" places you and your friends in the middle of an exciting board game with dozens of unique games. Mario is just one of several friends in this game, so everyone playing in multiplayer mode can pick their favorite character.
