Unlike the final garage, the door is on the right-hand side instead of the back, and the only decorations it has are some cables and a set of tires. It has no textures, but the vertex shading still remains.Unused ItemsIn RaceCommon.szs/ItemReactTable.bin, if viewed in a hex editor, there are 2 unused item functions for Fake Item Box ( FakeBox) and Mega Mushroom ( BigKinoko), indicating that they were planned at one point during development. It is possible to revive them, but so far it crashes the game, or a glitched item appears which does nothing.
They probably crash the game because either the items are missing their item models, or they have incomplete functions.Unusual Item BoxesOn Rainbow Road. After the first gliding section, there are three Item Boxes hidden under the planet's rings. They can only be collected by flying under the rings and back up onto the course. Unlike the Super Item Box retained in DK Pass (DS), which has a unique item distribution of only speed items and Red Shells, they appear to have no special characteristics. Unused Battle Mode Item FunctionsThe Blue Shell, Lightning, and Bullet Bill can't be obtained under normal circumstances. These items will have unusual effects when hacked in.Blue ShellActs like a Green Shell but it goes on forever. The game crashes if it goes out of bounds.LightningShocks the players but it doesn't always give out a point per player.
The players do not shrink, and they keep any items they had.Bullet BillFollows a route similar to the CPUs, and like the Blue Shell, the effect lasts forever. It performs tricks automatically. After a while it will get stuck in a loop.
Unused 'Race Number' StringsInside the message file at UIcommon-XX.szs1DAA5659, there are the messages for indicating the race number (1st, 2nd, 3rd, final). However, there are also messages for all the way up to the '31th race', allowing for a maximum of 32 races. It is likely that this would have been used with a feature for customizing the number of races in VS mode or online tournaments, both of which are locked to 4 races at a time.Unused Lap SettingLike in, there is an unused value in the track's settings file which controls the number of laps. Modifying it doesn't seem to affect anything in-game, however. The game only has Lakitu signs for three laps, so it would be unable to properly indicate any extra laps.Miscellaneous Test Items.

Yes, yes, let me tell you about what happened recently. You see, Mario and his friends are always busy fighting evil and saving the world and so forth, so I offered him a chance to come on a cruise around the world! But in doing so, I apparently made that rogue Bowser somewhat angry. Let me tell you what he said.BOWSER: 'This makes me MAAAAD!! They're going on a vacation. AND NOT TAKING ME! They want a fun vacation?
I'll give them a fun vacation! And by that, I mean NO FUN AT ALL! I'll find those chumps and wreck their good times! Bwa ha ha ha!' TOADSWORTH: Great Kippers!
That King Koopa has never been that angry! Who knows what he'll do? But chin up, old bean! We won't let him ruin our good times, right? The playable characters about to embark on their cruise.has invited Mario and all his friends to go on a luxury cruise around the world.
However, Toadsworth invited every character except for one:. Furious because he's being omitted, the Koopa King vows revenge. When the cruise ship arrives at its first destination, the passengers discover that Bowser has turned their vacation paradise into a stress-filled madhouse.After conquering the boards, the player enters Bowser's Castle for their final showdown against Bowser, in which they eventually are able to use the power of the Stars they gathered to send Bowser and the Koopa Kid crashing down. The epilogue sees the duo landing on a tiny island with a tree and feeling dizzy afterwards until they catch sight of the player, who is waving at the duo from aboard the MSS Sea Star as Bowser says that he won't forget this.
Gameplay of landing on a in the boardMario Party 7 features game boards on which players and CPU characters move around on spaces similar to a board game. Players roll the with numbers from one to ten to advance on the board. At the beginning of the game, players can hear an explanation of the board's objective, as well as various other quirks the board may have.
The turn order is then determined by a Dice Block roll, with the higher numbers going sooner. Each player starts off with ten, and the number of coins is affected by the spaces that the player lands on after their turn, as well as multiple other factors. For example, landing on a gives a player three coins, while landing on a takes three coins away. The boards feature a variety of spaces that have different effects, and players can collect items known as (a feature returning from Mario Party 6) from, buying them at, or winning them from. The items can be used to have different effects, which help players or hinder an opponent's progress.After each player has completed their turn, a minigame is played.
The type of the minigame is determined by the colors of the spaces that the players ended their turn on. When all colors match, a 4-Player minigame is played, otherwise there is a 1-Vs-3 or a 2-Vs-2 minigame. In Mario Party 7, minigames might involve clearing action courses, solving puzzles faster than the other players, or fighting against each other, but all rules and controls vary between minigames.
Several minigames use the that is shipped with the game and plugs into Memory Card Slot B. Players can play microphone minigames without the device by adjusting the game settings. Winning players earn ten coins; however, some minigames are dependent on their category, such as the special Bonus minigames (which are mixed in with the normal minigame categories; they are marked by a yellow name), Battle minigames, Duel minigames, DK minigames, and Bowser minigames. Various minigames have specific conditions to play in them: Battle minigames occur at random, rare intervals where players have their coins put at stake and the reward is dependent on how well the player has done.
Duel minigames are triggered by, where players can win Duel minigames for a prize dependent on a roulette, a change from the two preceding installments, and, where players are required to put coins and Stars at stake to play. DK and Bowser minigames occur when players land on their respective places; a new feature exclusive to Mario Party 7 is that single-player DK and Bowser minigames are thrown into the mix of multiplayer DK and Bowser minigames.
Once a minigame after every turn is completed, the game is saved and players resume their turns on the board. The Last Four Turns Event, where the losing player or team are invited to spin the roulette wheel.At the last four turns, the occurs.
Bowser appears to give Koopa Kid the current standings, while also inviting the last player or team to spin the bonus wheel. Some of the effects can help or hinder the players on the board, where one of them triples coins earned on Blue and Red Spaces while others involve Bowser Spaces being placed on all Red Spaces.The main objective of any Mario Party game is to gain that are located at a special location in the board.
In Mario Party 7, each board offers its unique way to obtain stars, unlike most preceding games in the Mario Party series where there is only one way to obtain stars. At the end of every game, Toadsworth announces the game's current Star count and final coin count. After that, there will be three for the players who did the best during the course of the game.
The player with the most Stars overall, wins the game. If there is a tie for Stars, then the winner will be decided with coins (Dice Blocks if the final coin count is the same).A new addition to the board gameplay is. After each turn, a special gauge representing Bowser's head appears on the screen to tell the player when that time comes; the meter fills up every turn. When the gauge is filled, Bowser Time is initiated.

This special event happens every five turns; in the Last Four Turns event, the gauge stops appearing after every turn.After every session, whether on board gameplay in Party Cruise or playing minigames in Minigame Cruise, are earned. These are used to spend on various items at the Duty-Free Shop.One change has been made to Tag Battle in Mario Party 7. Unlike previous installments, where both players in a team move separately, both players in a team move at the same time by hitting two Dice Blocks from 1-5. Also, both players may be able to participate in certain board events by landing on a Green Space. Players alternate between the leader every turn, where initially, the first leader is determined by the controller order.
Leaders make the decisions such as using Orbs, visiting Orb Shops, or making choices in board events. If a human-controlled player is partnered with a CPU player, the human-controlled player is always the leader.Game modes Toadsworth is the host of Mario Party 7, and he guides players through the various modes of the game.

Critics generally cite how similar the game plays to the rest of the Mario Party games, where they recommend it to seasoned Mario Party players or players who want a minigame collection to play with family or friends, but cannot draw in people who do not like the earlier entries of the Mario Party series.Ryan Davis of GameSpot gave the game a 6.5/10, saying that the game was a huge improvement. He praised the controls, the challenging Bowser minigames and more usage of the mic, and mentioned that Mario Party 7 is an actual party because of the use of 8-player modes and that the game really gets the whole family to join in the fun. However, Davis notes how the game is short on the originality department, where he states that 8-Player minigames are the only innovation Mario Party 7 has going for it.
Matt Casamassina of IGN gave the game a 7/10, noting the fun multiplayer experience, the 8-Player minigames, and the huge number of minigames, but also notes how the franchise is aging and that the single player experience is disappointing. He ended with 'Mario Party 7 is still entertaining, but I'd be a liar if I wrote that I'm not growing bored with new iterations of the same old formula.
To its credit, the title delivers some fun new boards and mini-games, and the multiplayer experience is as robust and enjoyable as ever. But it in contrast dishes out a worthless single-player mode marred by tediously slow computer-controlled character interactions. And the overall presentation of the story, cut-scenes and real-time achievements is only passable.'
Ellie Gibson of Eurogamer gave the game a scathing review, criticizing the unoriginality and sheer tedium of the game, despite noting how some of the minigames are fun, giving the game a final verdict of 3/10. On the other end, Dave 'Fargo' Kosak gave the game a 4 out of 5 Stars, while noting the similar feel it has to other Mario Party games and that it is running out of gimmicks, but has commented that it is slightly better than the last Mario Party game and that no other game franchise does the party formula as good as Mario Party has done.

Nintendo GameCubeRyan Davis,6.5/10' It's not dramatically different from Mario Party 6 or, frankly, any of the other Mario Party games, but as a cheery collection of simple pick-up-and-play minigames that's well suited for younger and more-casual players, it still works.' Nintendo GameCubeMatt Casamassina,7/10' A decent sequel to an aging franchise. It will probably sell like hotcakes. But the only people that should truly be interested in it are those dedicated to multiplayer parties. Everybody else can either make due with last year's version or avoid the series altogether.' Nintendo GameCubeEllie Gibson,3/10' It's such a shame that Nintendo - the creator of Mario Kart, which is arguably the most fun you can have with platonic friends - just can't seem to sort Mario Party's problems out, even for the seventh installment in the series. Roll on number eight, eh.'
Nintendo GameCubeJared Rea,D+' The problem with Mario Party is this: the downtime is completely ridiculous. In a game where the sole purpose is to entertain you in a party-like environment, sitting out for periods of up to 10 minutes at a time, waiting for everyone to roll the dice, run around, shop for items, use said items, compete in stale, single-player mini-games, pointless microphone games and other random events drives one to tears of boredom.' Nintendo GameCubeDave Kosak,4/5' It's better than the last game but not all that innovative. Of course, until somebody else steps up and makes a great party game, Mario Party's the only gig in town.'
