Mario Party 8 was a truly horrible game. Honestly, anyone who honestly lists it as their favorite, is either, 1, a general gamer, or 2, hasn't played any of the other Mario Parties. Cuz pretty much every game is better than MP8; That's harsh, but it's true, MP8 has too many problems imo to be considered good. Now, before I give it it's s*** storm, I do indeed like Koopa's Tycoon Town and Shy Guy's Perplex Express, they were both good boards and fun, PLUS, I loved Blooper <3 Ahem, now... here's what I hate about MP8 (you better sit down and pay attention now!).
-Bad boards (other than the 2 boards I mentioned, every board has a generic/dull design).
-Bad Mini-Games (Flip the Chimp speaks for everything).
-Slow Gameplay (the game felt very laggy and slower than a usual Mario Party).
-VERY dry music (other than MPDS, this has very bad music, everything sounds ehhhhh or a copy of the last song...).
-Candy could be better (Candy is ehhhhh, I like some of the effects, but it could of been better).
-Lack of Spaces (I didn't like this on MP1, I don't like it here. Like everything is a Blue Space, and idl DK/Bowser now).
-Bad AI (even on VERY Hard, CPUs still act very dense and dumb).
