Read our Mario Party Advance video game review for the 411 on saving party land from Bowser and his koopa goons!
Courtesy of Nintendo

It's time to play mini games with Nintendo's Mario Party Advance so you toss it into your GBA and fire it up when, suddenly, Bowser shows up and scatters all the cool mini games. What a jerk! Mario, Luigi, Peach and Yoshi need you to help them defeat Bowser and his koopa goons at dozens of mini games to unlock all the games and Gaddgets so you can play with 'em again! Our game review gives you the 411 on how hot this GBA game is.

Mario Party Advance Mini Game Basics

This game is a mini game and multiplayer game bonanza! You start out with a few games you can play, and a ton more you can unlock by playing the single player, board game-style, quest game. Once you've unlocked some games, you can connect two or more GBAs together and play them as multiplayer games with your friends.

Party Time With Mario and Friends on the GBA!

This game is a party! The single player mode where you can unlock games is loaded with special missions, fun games and Bowser's dorky koopa minions. Once you unlock some games, you can play them with your friends without needing extra Mario Party Advance game packs - just plug the GBAs together and they share the mini games!

Mario Party Advance GBA Party Poopers

The bad news is that there are a bunch of mini games that don't work too well in multiplayer. Especially when you're supposed to share GBA buttons to play the game. Also, you can't play the multiplayer games if you plug Mario Party Advance into the Nintendo DS so there's no wireless gaming fun.

Is Mario Party Advance a Blast?

The single player mode is awesome, unfortunately the multiplayer games are weak. It's a fun game with lots of cool mini games to play, but it's not the next big thing for multiplayer gaming fun.

Mario Party Advance Thumbs Up:

  • Single-player quest mode to unlock mini-games!
  • A free board game.
  • You can play multiplayer with only one game pack.

Mario Party Advance Thumbs Down:

  • Some really dumb games.
  • The Share a GBA multiplayer games are weak.

Why is Bowser Such a Jerk?

  • Because he's the bad guy, duh!
  • He didn't get enough hugs as a baby.
  • Cuz he's trying for the record as the world's biggest jerk.
