Since the GameCube was a Nintendo system, it came with a lot of Mario games. Here are all of them.
A lot of Mario games have come out over the years. The fact that the Italian plumber has been in more than 200 games is truly amazing and shows how important he is to the video game business. The man has worked as a painter, a plumber, a street cleaner, a judge, a death match fighter, a racer, and pretty much any other job you can think of. The good old days of Mario on the GameCube are really interesting and give us a great look at how this figure has changed with Nintendo’s hardware over the years.
Mario has been Nintendo’s mascot and the main character of most of their games for a long time, so it’s no surprise that there are a lot of games on the system with him. Each of these books is pretty fun on its own, and many of us still enjoy remembering them.
Super Smash Bros. Melee
It would be a little unfair to call the Super Smash Bros. series Mario games, since this game has a character from most popular Nintendo games. However, this doesn’t change the fact that most of the characters in this ambitious crossover fighting series were from the Mario series. These characters had a lot of different skills that players were urged to use to beat and smash all the fighters in this game.
Many people think that Melee is the best game in the series, and Ultimate is the only game that can compare. Players need to be very skilled to beat the game because it goes quickly and has a lot of moves. But the game is also pretty easy for beginners to pick up, so they can get good at the basics before going on to more difficult moves.
People didn’t like Luigi’s Mansion when it came out because it wasn’t Super Mario Sunshine. It was one of the first games for the Gamecube, and while it’s not the most ambitious Mario game on the system, it’s a nice change of pace. Every corner of Luigi’s Mansion is a surprise for players, from the game that stars Luigi to the one that looks like a campy horror movie.
It has simple controls and gameplay, but it’s still fun to play, and the pictures look great for a game that came out in 2001. People showed more respect for this game over time, as more and more people became interested in this old favorite.The story of this game continues in great style in Luigi’s Mansion 3, which is jam-packed with details and makes sucking up ghosts more fun than ever.
Mario Party 7
There are a lot of Mario Party games for the Gamecube. Since this is the fourth Mario Party game for the system, it’s clear that Mario Party 7 was a sign that the series was losing steam. However, the game is still fun to play with friends in its own way.
In Mario Party 7, the boards are more gimmick-based than in previous games in the series. Also, if players don’t have the microphone that comes with the game, falling on a Microphone space won’t do anything. Even so, the game should be praised for bringing Mario Party to the Gamecube for 8 players, which was a big deal.
Super Mario Sunshine
Super Mario Sunshine, the best Super Mario game for the Gamecube, comes first. Fans had strong feelings about this game back in the day because it was so different from Mario 64 in style, gameplay, and tone. Mario isn’t just jumping into paintings whenever he wants anymore; he has a job to do, which is to clean up Isle Delfino.
That doesn’t matter if players like the F.L.U.D.D.; Super Mario Sunshine is still a great game and one of the best for the Gamecube. Still, Super Mario Sunshine got a bad name in the business because it had a lot of bugs, which was strange for a Nintendo game. The company was known for making games as good as they could be, which is why Sunshine feels like an outlier. If players want to get the most out of this game, they have to put up with some flaws.
Mario Kart: Double Dash
It was fun to play Mario Kart: Double Dash, and it felt joyfully unfair like all the other games do. Many people thought that Double Dash was slowed down by some small problems, even though it had a lot of interesting characters and fun relationships between them.
The item sets that were only for certain character pairs were a cool idea, but they weren’t implemented very well. The fact that the game didn’t have enough new tracks didn’t help. That being said, Mario Kart: Double Dash was a great test for the series, and fans love it in its own way, even though most people think it’s not the best Mario game ever.
Super Mario Strikers
In terms of style and mood, this soccer game seems like one of the bigger risks Nintendo took. Very rarely does a Mario game do something really risky. This and Super Mario Sunshine are the only ones that come to mind. Mario Strikers has so much crazy soccer action that it’s almost as good as the famous movie Shaolin Soccer.
The art style is great, and the fact that each Captain had their own group of friends made each team feel special. The game also played great! The quality of the follow up Mario Strikers: Charged dropped a bit, but this is still one of the Mario Sports games that people can’t get enough of. If Mario Strikers: Battle League wasn’t as good as the first game, there’s a reason why a lot of players were disappointed.
Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
There are many great things about Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, even though some thought it wasn’t really better than the cult classic Mario Golf on the N64. Nintendo didn’t take many chances with this sequel, which made it feel a bit too safe for most fans. It’s possible that they were afraid of starting from scratch.
However, the game should be praised for what it does well. The game itself was fun, had a good level of challenge, and had a great cast of golfers. The only bad thing about this game is that the changes aren’t really new; they’re just small tweaks to an old formula.
Paper Mario And The Thousand-Year Door
Paper Mario has been around for a long time. The first Paper Mario game came out on the N64. Even though that game was great on its own, it wasn’t until the Paper Mario and the Thousand-Year Door game for the Gamecube that people really noticed how unique this spin-off series was, especially since the games were so much fun and hard.
Most people still think that TTYD is the best book in the series, and that probably won’t change any time soon. Another reason could be that each new game in the series has become more and more different from what made the first one great. Or it could be that TTYD is a great game in and of itself. Some might even say this was the first game in Nintendo’s “Craft World” series, which led to games like Kirby’s Epic Yarn and Yoshi’s Wooly World.
Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix
One of the most famous rhythm games is Dance Dance Revolution. It’s an arcade classic in every way because the gameplay is so easy to get hooked on. But a lot of people weren’t sure if this franchise and Mario’s famous figure would work together. surprisingly, Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix is also great. It’s a one-of-a-kind treat that fans should definitely check out.
It’s very well put together and adds new features to the base Flappy Bird gameplay that make it fun to play. Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix is a great rhythm game for Mario fans who want to try something new with names they know.
Mario Party 5
Nintendo was set on the GameCube after Mario Party 4, which brought the popular board game series to the system. Hudson Soft really showed off what the purple lunchbox machine could do in Mario Party 5.
In this Mario Party game, players have to pay to use certain things, which may be annoying to some but makes them think about which items are really worth it. The boards are more creative than others on the system, and they don’t use cheap tricks. You can play a lot of great minigames, such as “Dodge Bomb” and the very scary “Night Light Fright.” This is one of the best Mario Party games that fans can try for themselves.
Mario Power Tennis
Again, Nintendo seemed to really try out Mario Sports during the GameCube era, and luckily for fans, it worked out. A lot of people loved the kart racing, golf, and soccer games. This title also did a great job with tennis.
Fans still enjoy Mario Power Tennis, and Mario Tennis Aces makes it very clear that fans liked this sport. There is something about tennis that works really well with Mario characters, and the different tournaments, character types, and game modes made this one of the best sports games on the GameCube.
Mario Superstar Baseball
Aside from a few personal favorites, every Mario game is good. Mario is Nintendo’s main character, so they always spend a lot of time and money making sure all of his games are good. Another game that’s pretty fun on its own is Mario Superstar Baseball, though some might say it’s not really that great.
Its follow-up, Mario Super Sluggers, was a huge hit and a fan favorite on the Nintendo Wii. It was a game that combined Mario and baseball techniques in a way that was much more innovative than this GameCube gem. Mario Superstar Baseball laid the groundwork for what many people say is one of the less well-known GameCube games.
Mario Party 6
Since this is the third Mario Party game for the system, you might think it’s not very good, but that would be too low of an opinion. Mario Party 6 is the best time players will have with Mario and his friends on the Gamecube. Its boards change depending on the “time of day,” and it has a lot of fun mini-games.
Given how many Mario Party games there are for the GameCube, this is pretty high praise. There is, however, something very special about Mario Party 6 that makes it playable over and over again!
Mario Party 4
When it came to graphics, the first Mario Party game for the Gamecube was a huge step forward for the series. This game set the stage for the rest in the series to fully amaze players with how they were designed to play. Players will have a great time trying to beat their friends at this great game.
Boards in Mario Party 4 tend to go on and on with no way to loop around, which can get old. Even though the minigames tend to blend together, they are still a lot of fun when players take turns competing to see who can win. But once Mario Party 5 and 6 came out for this system, most people forgot about this game, which was a shame.
