Mario Party 2 is a party video game developed by Hudson Soft and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64. The second game in the Mario Party series.
There is some semblance of a story, although the introduction is something you will probably have no desire to watch twice. In each Board, Bowser has taken over the place and you must become the superstar to defeat him. The ending cinemas are well done and often quite funny.
This game is fantastic. In one player, it is a bit short-lived, but this game makes your jaw drop when you play it with mates. First of all, you set up your game. Choose your characters, your board, the AI level, etc. Then you get into the game. Each board has a different story. This doesn’t really affect the gameplay, but depending on what board you play, you get different costumes. Ever wanted to see Yoshi dressed up as a pirate? Here’s your chance.
The game consists of you stopping the dice, then moving around the board. You can land on different panels, all of which trigger different events. You can gain more coins, lose some, trigger an event, loads of stuff. The battle panel triggers a battle game that has you battling in a mini-game. My favorite one was where you had spikes on the front of your car, and a balloon on the back. You had to bust each other’s balloons. Hilarious results.
The aim of the game is to collect the most coins and stars. You get stars by landing on a Toad panel. Here he gives you one. This has you all racing towards Toad, using fiendish tricks to cause problems for each other. And there is also baby Bowser, who steals stars.
