Mario Party Star Rush Review

In the wake of the American presidential election, unease and despair blanket the globe in a suffocating... blanket. Only one thing can unite our fractured and dying planet: Mario Party!


Mario Party Star Rush is a once-in-a-lifetime cultural touchstone. It's a bright, colorful bundle of joy delivered by fate at the crossroads of history just when humanity needs it most. This is the most significant Mario game to date.

It's also a minigame lover's dream! There isn't a single low point in the mix, and there are so many modes included that you could easily play Mario Party Star Rush for years as your world crumbles.

You can choose to play as Mario, Luigi, Princess Daisy, Wario, or Rosalina. Now that's a reassuring cast of characters, not divisive in any way. Just what we need. There are even a bunch of Toads! For instance, there's Blue Toad and Red Toad... oh. Oh no.

Is Mario Party Star Rush worth buying? Absolutely! More than that, it's worth the years of geopolitical turmoil to come.
