Even better than NSMBU

The levels are much more bite-sized, only giving you 100 seconds to beat each level, but that's what makes it so fun. Hectic, chaotic, absolute fun. The fact that Nabbit can't get hurt by running into enemies adds to the chaos, not only allowing less experienced players to enjoy, but allowing experienced players to mess with their buddies. I can't even describe how much fun I've had with this game. Nintendo platforming at it's finest. Long live Luigi!

Kind of A Disappointment.......

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.
