** ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. for Wii U]]' had Smash Tour which is a "board game type" mode. Fans joked that Smash Tour is a Smash version of ''Mario Party''. The mode Toad Scramble in ''Mario Party Star Rush'' plays like Smash Tour, where players move around the board at at the same time, collect items and recruit allies.

** The fans went completely up in arms when ''6'' introduced the "gimmick boards" that steered away from the usual "star hunt" style of gameplay and would award stars through other means. Even though this was only done to give some variety between boards, very few were accepting of it, especially when it turned out it was here to stay in ''7'' and ''8''.

** Starting from ''Mario Party 5'' and onwards, Donkey Kong [[DemotedToExtra no longer being a playable character]] has made fans upset. But, he finally returns as a playable character in ''Mario Party 10''.

** Bowser Party in ''10'' is horribly unbalanced to the point that not having Bowser win is an achievement. Among the problems that it has is the ability for Bowser to redo the dice roll if he is unable to catch the team of four giving whoever is playing as him two chances and the final stretch has several spaces that can aid Bowser. Perhaps the worst of them though is that when the team of four gets to the end they have to play a luck based minigame which will fling them back along the board if they loose and most likely end up getting flung into Bowser if he is close enough.

** Horror Land from ''Mario Party 2''. It has an extensive day[=/=]night feature and Big Boo who can put you miles ahead of the rest (he'll let you steal coins from all three of the other players if you have 15 coins and it's night, and one star from each of the other three, up to three stars, if you have 150 coins) but reaching him is risky (he's behind a locked door, so you will need a Skeleton Key to reach him).

*** The ? Spaces do many different things depending on what's close to it (which was the first time this happened in a ''Mario Party'' game).
*** The Banks loaned out money, instead of making players deposit them whenever they passed by, meaning that you had to avoid a huge payload instead of trying to get a jackpot (every time someone gets a loan, it's 5 coins, and that number is added to a "principle and interest" total; landing on the Bank Space directly in this board forces that player to pay back said principle and interest from their coin total. If they do not have enough coins to cover the total, the Bank will take all the coins they have and scold them).
*** There are two Item Shops rather than one (the one in the southwest corner is a regular Item Shop, but the one in the northeast corner is a Bowser Item Shop that will forcibly sell a player a random item for a few more coins than it's normally worth, plus they can sell Bowser Bombs to bring Bowser onto the board. If a player already has an item, they won't bother him/her).

** Clockwork Castle from ''6''. Not only do you get to chase DK for Stars, but you can turn the tables on your opponents at the last minute by turning DK into Bowser and forcing them to run for their lives. Getting caught by Bowser or running into him earns you a free Shadow Star, which will subtract a Star from your total or steal twenty coins if you don't have any stars (the latter will also cause Bowser to jump to a new space)
