Super Mario 3D World
Only 9.25 Gameinformer Really?
Don't get me wrong, 9.25 is a great score, but the review only had ONE COMPLAINT and a very minor one if that, so it should deserve a 9.75 or at least a 9.5 but not a 9.25. Mario 3D World is a sequel I guess to Mario 3D Land that was on 3DS. I thought 3D World would be on the 3DS as well based off the name but it's a Wii U game and my favorite Wii U game as well. The story is a little different from all the basic Mario games (I know, I'm just as shocked as you) This time around Bowser is bored of capturing Peach so instead of capturing Peach, he captures fairies instead (Yeah, nice new story Nintendo, really clever new twist on the classic story) and Mario, being the nice guy he is, decides to save the fairies, cause why not right? (Well actually, Peach falls down a clear pipe, and Mario, Luigi, and Toad fall in after her into "A whole new World" [Get the reference?] so it's Peach's fault this time that Mario is in this mess, sigh) This game is just like Mario Bros 2 (The American version, not "Lost Worlds") in that you can choose to play as Mario, Luigi, Peach, and the useless Toad. Mario is well rounded, Luigi jumps highest, Peach runs the slowest but makes up for it because somehow she can float for a short time (must be a magical dress or something) and Toad runs the fastest (He stole Sonic's shoes yet he still can't run as fast as him [random]) Basically, they all control like they did in Mario 2. There is a secret character you can unlock, not gonna spoil anything, but this person controls like Mario but can use a spin attack so this person doesn't really need power ups. Also, 4 player action for the first time ever in a 3D Mario game. It's really fun, but I'd rather prefer it in 2D Mario games more. The levels are fun and there's lots to do, like finding all the green stars hidden as well as stamps. (Stamps you can stamp on Miiverse so you don't have to draw anything.) There's a nice variety in levels as well from standard levels, to riding on a water Pokémon wannabe, to mystery boxes, to even Captain Toad levels. Captain toad levels are puzzle levels in which you play as toad, who needs to get all 5 green stars to win, only thing is, Captain Toad cannot jump. These levels were probably the most fun, and there were very few of them. I wish Nintendo could make a game just with Captain Toad levels, that would be an instant buy for me. Make it happen Nintendo. Power ups are basically the same old power ups but with the addition of the Cat Suit (Best power up) that allowed you to clime up walls, scratch your enemies, (Don't worry, no claw marks show) and do a homing dive claw attack (Which a lot of times I dive off the cliff) You can walk on the world map, but there's nothing much you can do with it sadly. There is a slot machine that appears in every world that'll allow you to get some 1ups if your lucky. As far as gamepad use is concerned, you don't you it much, mainly to raise certain platforms be blowing in the mic (or just talking into it) or by tapping the platforms, that's about it. Ok, as far as the one complaint Gameinformer complained about, they didn't like the fact that holding down the run button also made you pick up items if you run into an item you can pick up. That's why it got a 9.25 score............sigh (there may have been another complaint, but that's all I remember) Ok, I'm done with this review, get this game now, and farewell everyone. This is one of the best Mario games out there.
A really good game
This game is really fun especially with other people which is probably one of the best parts! It's very challenging so not only will you have to work as a team but you'll want to be the team leader which can be shown at the end of the level; It shows who had the most points.
Yet again Nintendo brings us another masterpiece from the Mario franchise. This game is definitely one of the most fun games available for the WiiU and its brings you everything you can look for in a game. The multiplayer allows you to enjoy this game with your friends in a way that no other game can do. i highly recommend this game to you viewers.
Cats and More Cats
Super Mario 3D World is currently one of the best games on the Wii U. It features unique levels,bosses, power ups, and provides hours of entertainment. You get to ride dinosaurs, drive an ice skate, and get to be Captain Toad in his quest to get green stars. It also includes a four player mode to be able to play with friends. The HD graphics look amazing and the music is great. The game is a sequel to the 3DS game Super Mario 3D Land. However there were some disappointments for this game that other 3D Mario games didn't have. One of them would be the lack of challenge with this game. Throughout the time i played through I believe I only had to continue once. There were only a few levels throughout the whole game that presented an actual challenge. The second reason is the white Tanooki suit. This suit makes you invincible from any objects or enemies. It takes away any sort of challenge or accomplishment by the person using it. Other than that if you are looking for a fun, casual game to relax or play with friends, this is definitely a game to get if you own a Wii U.
Beautifully done Nintendo
It's about time Nintendo got a new great game out for the Wii U. I mainly bought a Wii U because I knew a new Smash Bros and a new Zelda would soon be here, but when I was New Super Mario World I just had to have it. It has the best of the old, and brings in so many great new features. The cat suit being the most obvious, everything about the cat suit is fun and it's great to be able to see everyone running around on all fours and climbing up the walls. They've added many new features as well, like the new mystery house levels, and the captain toad levels, which are fun and give players a new challenge. The best thing about the Mario games is anyone and everyone can play. Whether you're 15 or 50, you'll love playing this game and can play it with everyone in the family.
If you have a wiiu this is i must own
This pretty much is a killer app for the wiiu. If you have a wiiu you need to own this.I love the character system in this game also.
Gets Boring, But Good
This game is good in a lot of ways. But, once you beat the main story, getting every stamp, star, and golden flag, gets boring. Everything else is good about the. Well.... this game also needs more power-ups. Although, I think this game should've been $50.
Redefining a Generation
After a while, i gave up on the mario series because i thought all the games were too much alike. You always save a princess from bowser. I came to this when i saw super mario bros. u and then super luigi bros. u with the mario part crossed out. When i heard about this game, i am first to admit, i was dead wrong. Great new powerups and worlds and storyline. I love the new them and peach's playability. I said i recommend it to party gamers because it is great to do in a group. My suggestion is that they make a cheap companion game for 2ds and 3ds and then make a wii verrsion that has a ds and dsi companion.
