  • The game boards feature a few new events and characters this time around, which I like because it adds some strategy and excitement to the game
  • Some of the mini-games that appeared in the original also appear here in upgraded or retooled ways, and I think it's great because the returning mini-games are new versions that feature longer tracks/objectives and feature more obstacles
  • This is one of the few Mario Party games that keeps things interesting by offering mini-games with two or three or more different versions, and it's a great feature
  • As a Mario Party fan, I recommend this game because the boards offer lots of fun times and it's hilarious to see how the characters all dress up in costumes depending on the theme of the board - something you'll only see in this Mario Party

      Mario Party 2 improves upon the previous Mario Party game in some ways while falling short in other areas. While single-player mini-games, penalties for losing mini-games, four-player work together mini-games, and Bowser’s position on the game boards have all been removed, MP2 adds unique item games on each board, items that can be used on the game boards, duels that allow you to steal coins from opponents, and battle games that force everyone to throw a certain number of coins in the pot and then compete in special mini-games to see who gets most of the coins and some of the coins were all added.

      For the most part, the improvements made outweigh what


      was lost, although it’s sad to see just six game boards as opposed to eight.

      The game boards feature a few new events and characters this time around, which I like because it adds some strategy and excitement to the game.

      For example, Baby Bowser now takes the place of the old star spot on each board.

      So, when you buy a star from Toad and Toad moves to a new spot, Baby Bowser assumes Toad’s old spot.

      Baby Bowser will usually take five coins from a player, but the real strategy emerges when one player tries to mess up the others by getting the Bowser Bomb! This is a dangerous item that is ...


      • very risky to use as it could backfire, but it really makes the game intense and requires players to plan ahead! Some of the mini-games that appeared in the original also appear here in upgraded or retooled ways, and I think it’s great because the returning mini-games are new versions that feature longer tracks/objectives and feature more obstacles! Plus, certain mini-games have variations so they aren’t always the same - like one mini-game features a race track and there are three variations in length and number of turns, so there are three different tracks to race on and you’ll never know which one is going to pop up! This is one of the few
        Mario Party games that keeps things interesting by offering mini-games with two or three or more different versions, and it’s a great feature.

        There are other modes that can be played as well, such as the mini-game coaster that offer nice break from the board gameplay once and awhile.

        As a Mario Party fan, I recommend this game because the boards offer lots of fun times and it’s hilarious to see how the characters all dress up in costumes depending on the theme of the board - something you’ll only see in this Mario Party! The mini-games continue to be great fun and offer plenty of reasons to come back to the party again and again!
