It requires a certain group of players - four regular gamers and four compatible controllers - to get the most out of it, but if you tick the boxes this is great.

Other Mario Party games may hit the Virtual Console, but number two belongs in your collection regardless. The variety of mini-games offered is immaculate, head and shoulders above several other entries. It could be a tough sell for the lone wolves of the world, but perhaps it’s worth the gamble.
It's wonderful to see the Mario Party series make an encore appearance, as it's been several years since Mario Party 8 came along and I know thousands of fans' holiday season parties have felt the absence of this truly fun and funny party-gaming staple. If you became a Nintendo gamer in the last decade, missed Mario Party 2 back in 2000 or if you just can't play it on your N64 any more because someone broke your controllers with an ill-advised extra round of MP1, then definitely jump on board for this VC re-release. It's well worth its asking price in Wii Points and may make you the life of the party.

There's just something about the simple fun of Mario Party 2 that makes it so difficult to put down at times. Sure the mini-games can be a tad on the basic side, but it works quite well in giving the game a more accessible gaming experience that should appeal to gamers of all ages and skill levels. The game tends to be a bit bland as a single-player experience, but if you can round up some additional players, and in truth that's what this game is all about anyway, you're likely to get far more out of the game and find it to be a nice diversion from the usual platforming fare normally associated with this cast of characters.

At ten dollars this sequel is now cheaper than most real board games, and this is the perfect game to play during your holiday get-togethers this weekend. It still fails as a one-player experience, but it's the perfect release this close to Christmas.
Un titre sans surprise qui n'apporte pas grand chose de nouveau par rapport à son prédécesseur. Le succès du premier épisode a cependant prouvé que la recette des mini-jeux correspondait bien au public de la N64, un peu lésé ces derniers temps. Un achat indispensable pour tous ceux qui ne jurent que par le multijoueur.
Spazio Games
Nonostante il tempo passi per tutti, alcuni titoli sono in grado di divertire ancora oggi, complice la loro fama di pietre miliari all’interno di un genere. Ciò è quanto possiamo affermare di Mario Party 2, il quale nonostante i dodici anni di età rappresenta ancora oggi un ottimo titolo da compagnia venduto a soli 1000 Wii Points (10 euro). L’esborso forse parrà meno giustificabile a chi lo giocò già a suo tempo, ed in questo caso se conservate ancora la cartuccia potreste preferire rispolverare il caro Nintendo 64. Per chiunque non lo avesse mai provato, è un’ottima occasione per farlo, a patto di avere tre amici e altrettanti Classic Controller extra.
