General Commentary and Game Overview
Late Night Mario 2 follows in the footsteps of the not-very-impressive Late Night Mario, but manages to be the exact opposite; very impressive. Never thought I'd see a touching story in a game about Mario staying up late.
Pros + Funny, sometimes even poignant, story
+ Tough, but not TOO tough
+ Good music
+ Nice original artstyle
Cons - The boss fights drag on a bit too long
- The final boss is perhaps a tad too hard
8 / 10
LNM2's gameplay is pretty similar to the first game, but it manages to throw in a lot of interesting gimmicks like rocket-riding. There are also a few actual boss fights, and while they're a bit longer than they perhaps should've been, they're still interesting and well-done.
8 / 10
The artstyle is still nice, and manages to be even better than the first game's due to having some actual foreground graphics too. Some of the foreground blends in with the background sometimes, but it's generally not a bother.
8 / 10
The music selection is wonderful, and the ambient sounds here and there add a lot to the game's atmosphere, especially in the final boss fight.
Final Words
9 / 10
LNM2 is exactly what a sequel ought to be; more of the same, but a lot better.
