Aside from its own Bomberman franchise, Japanese developer Hudson is probably most well known in recent years for developing the Mario Party games for Nintendo. Rather than try to emulate the successful Mario Party franchise as it did with the original Fuzion Frenzy, Microsoft has gone straight to the source for Fuzion Frenzy 2, having recruited Hudson itself to develop this Xbox 360 party-game sequel. Fuzion Frenzy 2 doesn't brim with recognizable mascot characters as the Mario Party games do; instead, it opts for a clumsy gameshow theme that features one of the most irritating in-game voice-overs in recent memory. The presentation can be generic and awkward at times, but the 40-plus minigames included are pretty varied and fun. Perhaps more importantly, Fuzion Frenzy 2 strips away a lot of the arbitrary reversals of fortune that have turned the Mario Party franchise into a bit of a game of chance.
