The Super NES classic isn't the only Virtual Console title heading to Europe before Christmas: Mario Party 2 is Nintendo's festive gift to you, launching on Christmas Eve.

James...I am disappointed in the bland taglines. I usually look forward to your humorous ones.



James said:

@MERG But it's set in the past and it's out before Christmas! "Back in time for Christmas"! Get it?

They can't all be classics



MERG said:

I get it's been a long day at work and I'm slowing down.

"They can't all be classics"? That is a bad attitude...reach for the stars James...reach for the stars.

Is it as good as Bonk's Adventure and Bonk's Revenge, or not as good? I'm interested in Super Bonk.

I'm hoping will be 60Hz if it's the US version, looks like a cool download if so.

Oh heck yes!

I remember playing this on Virgin Atlantic flight planes on the in screen SNES. I loved this game a lot, the only reason why I really liked flying with Virgin before they got insanely expensive.

Dammit, Europe, getting all the good games before Christmas! cries

I think I'll throw a great big American-entitlement tantrum until we get them too!

I remember renting Mario Party 2 and actually enjoying it, but the sequels I played were more depressing than fun. I might have to give 2 another look though.

I've played this game before. Actually, I used to own it before my cartridge mysteriously disappeared. While it's not a terrible game, it does seem to be lacking in flavor for some reason. The graphics and music are excellent, but the gameplay just seems bland.

When was the last time an interesting game came out on Virtual Console anyway? I used to check for the updates every week, but now...

Come on Nintendo, release Super Dodge Ball in PAL regions already!

I think thats just an aspect of Bonk games in general. I thought the same about Bonk 3.



Kirk said:

So much more character and charm, and just better looking in general, than the recent 3D Bonk game imo.

I've just gotta wonder: why is the reptilian king smaller than he is in the previous Bonk games?
