I have been playing this game for 2 days straight now, and I am completely addicted. Nintendo have shown that they are the true masters of the 2D platformer!
The addition of making you try to obtain 1 million coins has made it an absolutely addictive game, especially if you have OCD, you just have to have them all!!!
The graphics are simple, but extremely pleasing on the eye. With vibrant colours, and typical Super Mario style and flare, it doesnt fail to impress. The 3D aspect of this 2D game also adds a new twist to the series.
The gameplay is everything you would expect from a Mario game, and I wouldnt have it any other way. As the saying goes, if it ain't broke, dont fix it. Anyone who has ever played a Super Mario game will be able to pick this up right away, and have no problem jumping into the Tanooki suit.
The story is also what you would expect from a Mario game, princess peach is captured again, and you have to go save her. I am not sure why she always gets herself into trouble? Anyways, to be honest, I dont really need a reason to jump on a Goomba's head, I just do it because it feels good! No offense to any Goomba reading this.
Overall: 13/15 or 87%
A Mario game every gamer should own in their collection, and a great introduction to anyone new to the updated franchise.
