ONM Remembered – #249

“Toad is your guide to the Information Board. What a cutie!”

from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 91 (April 2000)

A really sweet, colourful preview for Mario Party 2. From the impressions I hear online, most folks consider it the best of the N64 instalments, if not the best one in the entire series.
Myself? I’ve never actually played it! The idea of the Mario characters wearing costumes actually offended me. Oh, sure, it’s a party and all, but you wanna play as Wario, right? You want Wario to be Wario! I don’t know about you, but I’d be frustrated if I played a Wario Land game and he was hidden beneath a poncho and novelty cowboy hat for the entire game.
