When I first got the game I realized that it would be my first Mario game on the Wii. Upon checking it out, it plays pretty fair for the first 30 minutes wondering what this game is about, learning and understanding it as a similar board game concept (never played the earlier versions, because have not owned an N64 or Gamecube).

Gameplay was way too tedious and a big bore after playing for more than one hour. Playing with the computer alone can be mind boggling. Playing it with a partner was more fun and more enjoyable (Cpu characters always tend to get better rolls somehow).

The graphics are nothing to shout about as we are seeing SNES styled graphics with some 3D elements, which did look good in some places.

The Atmospheric sound was quite well played as different boards had different themes. Wiimote sounds were also very cute when it's your characters turn and it shouts out. Still it lacked stronger themed character voices in it.
