Mario Party 2 (N64 / Nintendo 64)

Game Profile

It’s time to party like it’s the year 2000 once again; complete with fancy dress, bags of surprises and games galore!

Mario Party 2 brought Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom gang back together for a brand new round of Bowser-bashing board game action. Each of your favourite Nintendo characters dons different themed outfits to take part in five fun-packed Adventure Boards: Pirate, Western, Space, Mystery and Horror.

Up to four players can travel around the boards, while competing in mini-games for Coins and using items to get a sneaky advantage in order to win the most Stars and become the ultimate victor: the Super Star!

You can also visit Mini-Game Land to re-play any of the 64 mini-games from the Adventure Boards. Plus – prove your mini-game mettle in the Mini-Game Stadium: including Battle, Trial and two-player Duel Mini-Games!

Why would they release MP 2 prior to the first one? Especially considering the first one is better...but anyway: MP 2 is great, too, so I'm not gonna complain. ^^



FonistofCruxis said:

It's dissapoitning that they won't release the first one but at least this one is being released on vc.



DanDan said:

Yes Iv'e Been Waiting For This As I Can't Get It For The Nintendo 64, Why Not Release 1 and 3 At The Same Time?



StarBoy91 said:

I remember having played this game (along with the first one) with my cousins a few times years ago. It was so much fun.



KeeperBvK said:

I used to ruin my palm back in the days with MP 1 myself and I'd do it again.



Porky said:

Drake, I read the link, but couldn't find the reason why Mario Party isn't getting released. Can you tell me please?



KeeperBvK said:

The link reads "controversies" at the end, there is a section called controversies in that wiki-article and only one sole controversy is about the original Mario Party. No need to say any more, I guess.



carson said:

mario party 1, with the rotating joystick minigames. I remember that. it's funny because i really did get TERRIBLE blisters rotating that plastic stick, attempting to ride a bycicle...something with boo....idk...but that's a dumb reason not to release the first one....So excited for MP2 though. I've been waiting for the Mario Party series to come out since the wii launched. definetly a release day buy!



Scarhino89 said:

I will download it !!! My American friends When that game will release in your country, don't hesitate to download it, if you want



Ocegues said:

Reason why the mario party 2 is there cause it actually has more content, Mario party 1 i played the hell out of when i was a kid it was my first N64 title i played it alot still have it even for the N64 so... i'm happy about getting Mario party 2 for my Wii i never played it



Incognito_D said:

the funny thing is, no one would ruin their palm anywhere near as much using the classic controller or gamecube controller because they're rubber coated. The reason the N64 did so much damage was because it was solid, hard, ridged plastic.



Ocegues said:

Incognito D yeah i loved getting bruises on my thumb from the N64 analog playing goldeneye trying to get the best timer and unlocking cheats



Yellowkoopa said:

I think Mario Party 2 will be released either in the week before europe gets this game, the same week, or the week after. It's great that this game is finally getting released.
EDIT: Yes! It's being released on the same week as Europe! As soon as I get a wii points card, I will get this game.



WolfLink22 said:

It will be released Christmas Week watch and see everyone.So unless i get some more Nintendo Points later i'm waiting on it.At least i finally got the games that i put off for so long mostly any way.



Zakimo said:

I think that why Mario party 1 not is the first out is the Control's in the game?! I remember that I get hurt by the control in my hand:-(. So it can be difficult for Nintendo to change N64 To Gamecube Control's Maybe?



D33G said:

The first mario party not being released doesn't affect me. I've got it!



SuperMarioRacoon said:

The first one were been better because there are more levels xD
And the levels been better.
But i downloaded this game already and its a lot of party fun



chiefeagle02 said:
