Incredibly Easy and Nothing New

As someone who has played the Mario classics his whole life, I thought that this game was an absolute breeze. But I'm sure that little kids who are getting into the games will have a great time. One of my main complaints with this game is that it tries too hard to be both Mario 3 and Mario World. It accomplished this task, but at a price. The game seems jumbled and incoherent, like it doesn't know what it wants to be. I have nothing against the modern Mario games, but this was just too much of the old. The whole time playing I was tempted to boot up the classics, which are way more enjoyable. Veterans of the Mario games: Prepare to be disappointed by the fact its nothing new and too easy. Newcomers: You are going to be in for a good time.

Could have been better

A solid Mario game that has the same old same old feel as the previous one. The game looks and plays great but nothing new stands out like the older games in the series. Its time to be reinvented.
