Based solely on the review, I now understand why a game/this game gets a 9 out of 10 versus the coveted 10 out of 10. Not allowing for customization deviating from the Mario formula would definitely serve as the differentiating '1' point from receiving a perfect 10 score. But I digress, I am still very, very tempted to purchase a Wii U just for this game.
@TuchLawson: Woah, woah, woah. Both Punisher movies were awesome and at minimal watchable for the action alone. But the Superman with Kevin Spacey, specifically him as Lex Luthor, world's smartest man denominated to swindling great grandmother's out of their wealth...penis, super duper sucked.
