Top 10 Most Underrated Mario Spinoff Games

I like the Mario spinoff games, but some of them are just underrated. This list will include Mario Kart, Mario Party and any Mario sports game.

The Top Ten

1 Mario Hoops 3 on 3

This is a very underrated spinoff game and I enjoyed it so far, so good. The gameplay is good and the guest addition of Final Fantasy characters is also a nice touch.

I Am Not a Mario Fan Or Gaming Fan by the way

The Soundtrack is Underrated Too

I Am Also Not a Sonic Fan.

3 Mario Party DS

This was actually one of my first Mario party games. It's a lot like the older games. Overall good game

Speaking of the original Mario Party trilogy, that is much greater and deserves to be on this list for its 64-bit presentation, diverse gameplay and adventurous story in MP3.

4 Super Mario 3D Land

Wow. Holy Crap what an idiot I am. How did I mistake this for a spinoff? I have no idea. - Randomator

This isn't a spin-off it's part of the Super Mario series - BlueSheepYT

Overshadowed by 3D world - Randomator

5 Mario Super Sluggers

We need a Mario Baseball game for the Switch

I agree although it was in Mario sports superstars so it might be a few years - Randomator

Loved this game as a kid

Overall very underrated - Randomator

6 Dance Dance Revolution Mario Mix
7 Mario Superstar Baseball
8 Mario Party 9

This game is really hated. Yes it changes up the formula we're all used to but I at least respect it as it's own game.People need to give this game a chance. - Randomator

I don't care if they hate this game. I love it. They hate it because of the competitional factor. - listotaku17

I love this game. And just the fact that everybody hates it makes me hate them. Everybody hates it because they don't like the fact that Nintendo changed the concept. Two things.
1 - They changed it because they wanted everyone to be involved, instead of laying down after your turn. One move by a player effects everyone.
2 - For you people who hate Mario Party 9, I'm willing to bet that you never played this game, you just went to IGN or Metacritic or better yet, read the back cover and said that this game is trash.

I never hated this game yeah I know it changed the formula (in worse) but it was something new, bad, but still a nice try.

8 is boring, there is not anything special, an onobixious host and mediocre boards, the only pro is the roster. - DaisyandRosalina

9 Mario Kart Super Circuit

Seriously the most underrated Mario kart game. - Randomator

10 Super Princess Peach

For years people have complained that Peach was a weak, annoying damsel-in-distress, but when Nintendo finally made a game showing her as a strong person then it was hated. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Should've been Super Princess Daisy. Just saying

This games is sexist and if you don't believe me watch the ending. - WendyIsQueen

Mediocre game.
