Mario Party: The Top 100 brings back minigames from throughout the series with updated visuals as the last installment on the Nintendo 3DS.
Unlike past entries in the series, Mario Party: The Top 100 focuses on its minigame collection rather than a board gimmick or special mode. Each minigame returns from a former Mario Party and is reworked to fit the controls of the 3DS. Many minigames, especially those from the Nintendo 64 era, feature improved visuals and full 3D modeling. Returning minigames were only pulled from the console entries as the handheld installments didn’t get any representation.
Unfortunately, the big focus on returning minigames meant a severe lack of attention to all other modes. For board gameplay, only a single small board is playable in a mode nearly identical to Balloon Bash from Mario Party: Star Rush. Minigame Island is considered the main mode but it’s nothing more than a means to play each of the 100 minigames with special challenge conditions. No online play either, just local multiplayer.
