It's a great game. I bought it and beat the whole game. (Sadly all of my data was erased) It may suck at the beginning but once you get exposed to it you want to keep playing it non-stop. I kept playing it for a couple hours in bed one time :). They have some challenging activities too. It took me about months but I finally beat it. It's kinda long but REALLY fun. It's 2D but great quality. My favorite part was beating dark bowser.... BUY it or rent it. It's one of the best you will ever play. ( It's better than Super Mario 64 DS) I loved it.
Amazing. Hilarious. Insightful. Unbelievably perfect. (I gave it a ten, so expect some big compliment words.) This game was incredible. For four reasons:(1) Bowser was PLAYABLE. I learned a lot about him because of playing as him.(2) The controls were easy to execute. I had a hard time with the previous two, so this game was a relief.(3) The game's golden humor was shown in more ways than one. I laughed more at this game than I did at the previous two.(4) The special moves not only wowed me, but made me bust a gut. My favorite was the snack basket. Plus, thanks to this game, Bowser has become one of my absolute favorite characters. And guess what? I ended up BUYING it instead of just renting. This is an exceptional game, and I recommand it to all mario lovers. BUY THIS GAME. (!!!!)
