The next installment to the Mario Party series moves to the Nintendo Wii for the first time with it's 8th party bash.
Mario Party 8 is a game that only uses the Wii Remote. The Wiimote can be used in many different ways. Some games may require you to shake it, other mini games may need you to point at the screen and shoot things, and some of them may need you to move the remote up and right to move a certain vehicle.
- Play with motion control! Row your way down a river, punch a statue to pieces, steer race cars and mopeds, and handle a balancing pole while walking a tightrope!
- Play with the pointer! Drag and drop decorations onto cakes, shoot Boos in haunted house, quickly choose your answer in a game show!
- Mash those Wii Remote buttons! Jump and pummel your way through a football brawl, hop and run across an obstacle course of spinning platforms!
- Mario Party 8 includes six brand-new boards, dozens of minigames and tons of new modes. In a franchise first, you can collect special power-ups that transform your character into a boulder that smashes rivals, a coin-sucking vampire and more! Mario Party 8 includes extra-large minigames, including Star Carnival Bowling and Table Menace.
