I should have read the description, however I did not. Luigi U is unplayable for me simply because of Luigi's slippery floaty control. Talk about taking it back to Super Mario Bros. 2. At least the floaty control worked in that setting. In a speedy, precise platforming game such as this, the floaty game play mechanic kills this game for me. Other wise I'm sure this is a great stripped down version of Mario U bonus stages that are unplayable for me. How about a fresh new platforming game for Luigi.

I can't believe I'm writing a bad review on a Mario game, but here it is. I played the Super Mario U completely through and loved it, then I turned around and got this. I honestly felt like the levels were the exact same, just a little shorter because you only have 100 seconds to complete each course. They are so fast it isn't even like playing them, you are just running through each course.

I feel like this was a waste of a rental from GameFly, but I am glad I didn't purchase this game! Even if it is only 20.00, I could see where some people might feel like they got ripped off if you purchased this and Mario U. Just my thoughts, and I'm really disappointed that the Mario developers came out with this, as I have LOVED every game they have put out....until now.

Really Bad

Worse than the arcade version

The controls are beyond disappointing. Every level feels like you're running on ice. Every level gives you 100 seconds. They are short, but I've spent so much time trying to make a single timed jump onto a moving platform that time ran out before I could move on. I don't mind difficult but in this generation there is NO excuse for sloppy controls.
