Super Mario Maker 2

Building on Success

by Kyle Hilliard

Before Super Mario Maker's release on Wii U in 2015, making Mario levels was a privilege that belonged exclusively to Nintendo designers. Today, perhaps the initial charm of placing your own question mark blocks has worn away, but Super Mario Maker 2 does plenty to expand and improve the experience.

Super Mario Maker 2 looks, plays, and functions similar to its predecessor, which is still one of the most fun creation games ever released. Complicated elements like enemy A.I. and setting start and end points for levels are all taken care of for you, which frees you up to focus on the fun part: laying out the building blocks of the level. The menus are generally the same as the first game, and the core building blocks return. The tools, like seeing Mario's trail in create mode to identify proper jump distances, are all back, which is a great. The big updates for the sequel are mostly additions as opposed to sweeping changes.

The 3D World template is the only new visual style at your disposal, and it doesn't mesh seamlessly with the other templates (Super Mario Bros., 3, World, and NSMBU). You can swap between the old templates in a snap without changing the design of your levels, but changing to or from 3D World resets everything. Not being able to swap templates as easily is disappointing, but the new tools exclusive to 3D World are worth the technical limitation. The Koopa Troopa Car is entirely new to Mario in general, and locks the player into a very fast auto-run. It is used to create high-speed (and incredibly entertaining) platforming challenges.

Concept

Make more Mario with expanded tools and templates, and play more Mario with lots of Nintendo-created levels in a full story mode

Graphics

Mario looks great in all his renditions, and the user interface (an important element for games in the creation genre) is clean and easy to read

Sound

The Mario themes from various eras of the plumber's career all sound great. The sound effects related to building levels are particularly charming

Playability

Mario's platforming is identical to how it feels in his normal adventures, which is superb. I missed the Wii U's stylus for creation, but both the touchscreen and cursor-based controls feel smooth

Entertainment

Building your own Mario levels isn't as exciting as it was in 2015 on Wii U, but the story mode is a lot of fun and the new tools lead to some novel experiences

High
