    Surprisingly good.

    I didn’t expect too much from this game when I saw some previews, since it looked like little more than a console iteration of Mario 3D Land. But after completing the first two worlds, I was pr...

    The COD of Nintendo games.

    This was the last 2D Mario platformer of my marathon. How did it end? Not bad. There was a “new” flying squirrel power up. But really, it was nothing more than a tanooki rip off without t...

    Nothing new.

    Every game that has me collecting things, NEEDS to also give me a good reason to collect it. A work and reward system. I collect machine parts in Horizon Zero Dawn in order to craft better weapons. I ...

    Stays true to the SMB formula, while adding more.

    Good- interesting use of motion controls for platforms. Trying to move left and right while tilting the wiimote to move the platform is challenging.- new power ups. Bringing Yoshi back is cool, adds ...

    Fast paced, smooth and crisp platforming.

    Good- no time limit is nice- having to just recover baby mario when you get hit is better than having only one or two chances after getting hit in old Marios is a way better system.- visuals are charm...

    A very short and simple Mario game.

    It's a very very short game, but it's still really fun given the capabilities of the original game boy. The upgrades are limited to only fireballs. The enemies aren't too varied. Koopas turn into time...
