This is clearly a game for kids, and as an adult I couldn't finish it. Way too much hand holding and tutorials. The story was just okay, but I couldn't get very deep due to the constant tutorials and text boxes popping up during every single "screen" change. I put 5 hours into it, and probably played about 2 of that. The rest was mashing A to get on with it.
I am a huge fan of Mario and the entire franchise series!! But this game right here...too lengthy, talk too much, challenges are too frustrating and I have been on this game for two months, almost three and still dissatisfied!! I haven't even completed the entire game. I don't care at this point whether I defeat it or not!! Not happy!!!!
