This what makes me glad I kept my Wii and why I loved nintendo all along. I loved mario when I was a kid and this is just classic 2-D mario. No 3D mario, No collecting eight coins to open up another world, just go to world 1-1 to the castle beat a bower kin and move on. This is kind of Mario 1, 3 and Super Mario World combined. You have the classic Mario 1 Power ups, Mario three and Four esque memorbolia (The Koopa Kids, and Yoshi). Mario can fly once again but instead of a cape or racoon tail you have a beany propeller and now ice flowers that freeze your enimies or fire flower that burns them to a crisp. Yoshi is great because he can hover for 1.5 seconds. The Koopa Troopers are back and you can jump on them pick up their shells and use as a weapon and they dance to the background music from time to time which is kinda cute in a Mario type of way. Straight from mario three you have the mushroom houses to pick out prizes (Extra Power Ups) that you can save in the main menu and use anytime. All and All this game is a must own basically for the fact that this is a classic mario game, you just take the Wii remote hold it sideways and run jump, power up, ride Yoshi, beat a Koopa Child and repeat. I just don't why they keep pushing Bowser Jr. so much cannot get into him.

If you have friends who you play with, then this game is awful. But, if you plan on going through it in single player mode, the experience is a lot worse. Had a blast with friends. It was easier (and more satisfying) to get achievements with other people, but as soon as I tried to do things myself, a lot were near impossible.
