This game lives up to its predecessor’s standards very well. The game has many new Mini-games and has all new boards to party on. The game also features a few updated retro games. They were some of the best from the original. The controls are great. If a mini-game has a similar gameplay element to another game, it also uses the same controls. All the party boards work the same way, so there is no confusion there either. A new addition is that the partiers dress up to match the theme of the party map that is being used; on the pirate stage, the players dress up as pirates. This feature isn’t very important but it is somewhat interesting that Nintendo did this. This game is great. It is available on its original console, the N64, or on the Wii Virtual Console.
