|Mario Party 2|
North American box cover.
Mario Party 2 is the second game in the popular Mario Party series. It's not too different from the original, though does have some new features. Some of the new features include different costumes for each character on each stage, buildings where you are allowed to buy items or pay coins, new spaces, and others.
The slogan for the game was "Get the place jumping!"
The six boards are: Pirate Land, Horror Land, Western Land, Mystery Land, Space Land, and Bowser Land; with the last being unlockable. The main goal is to defeat Bowser in each board and retake control of the amusement park in which the game takes place.
The gameplay of all Mario Party games have generally stayed the same in every game other than the handheld titles, which have had probably the most dramatic update for the series.
Your objective is to go across your selected (or randomly chosen) board by rolling a dice and moving that many spaces. Once all 4 players have taken a turn, a mini-game will start, which is where you are able to collect tons of coins and extras.
The game also is the first in the series to use items, which in all there are 10.
