Amazon dropped the price of Mario Party DS to $19.99, probably to match CC's sale price this week.

Thanks...I just wish my $10 GC for pre-ordering Madden would show up. The wife might like this.

How is Mario Party DS? I'm thinking about picking it up this week.

Mario Party DS is a great game. It's a good Mario Party game and a great multiplayer DS game. The main thing to know is that it offers full ds download play. You aren't limited to minigames or certain boards, you can play the entire game via ds download play (meaning, with only one copy of the game) with up to 4 players, and it works exceedingly well. There are also some very fun minigames that take advantage of the DS' features. I definitely recommend it. I just wish more games supported full DS download play. Mario Party DS proves it can be done and done well.

It's on sale this week at CC for $19.99, hence the price-drop at Amazon. If anyone still wants it, grab a CC ad and get it Price-matched at Wal-mart or BB. Or I suppose you could wade through the disgusting waters of CC's never-in-order games selection until you possibly find one behind a few copies of That's So Raven.

Loved Mario Party DS. It's pre-Mario Party 8 gameplay; the traps are back! (Hated that those were removed for the Wii game.)

As was mentioned, the DS download play is excellent and is the whole game; no gimping here. There's a huge load at the front, but after that, the loading for each minigame is FAST (as in, you're still talking to the other players when the mini game is loaded, four seconds max.)

Totally worth the buy if you've got friends with DSes.
