Masterful Return to Side Scrolling

I've been gaming since the early Atari 2600 when "side scroller" meant "leaps and bounds in new technology". Video games that actually leave the boundaries of the single screen? Unheard of! So to say that I've cut my teeth on and endured most side-scrolling games caught in the wild would be an understatement. I knew I'd pick the game up regardless of the possible gameplay outcome but I didn't realize just how awesome this return to side-scrolling action would be.

The graphics are superb, the music is pleasant the entire length of the game, and the gameplay controls never once frustrate. The gameplay is somewhat shorter than I would have liked if you do nothing but concentrate on getting from the first to last world. The game once again shines in the mandatory Mario-esque placement of secret areas and feats of skill when attempting to replay all the levels to find all the stars and coins.

The extra moves and power-ups that Mario receives does nothing to take away from the gameplay either. I feared that the extra goodies would simply be used as band-aids for cover poor level design or flawed difficulty level. I was proven pleasantly wrong. The new power-ups are brilliant and the additional moves that Mario can use are never forced down your throat or take away from the fun of the game.

Excellent game and an excellent purchase for casual gamers, hardcore gamers, and collectors.
