As I am an avid Super Mario fan I will tell you that this game sort of follows the motif that one would expect from a game from this series. My opinion is that this game is fun to play, but not very challenging. Its way too short (I beat it in about 3 hours), and from what I could tell was designed for an audience of pre-teen and younger. The reason I say this is because if you die enough on a level, the game will give you a "golden leaf" that makes you invincible for the remainder of the level so you can beat it. This will happen all the way through the game even to when you fight Bowser. Another point is that I remember that Raccoon Mario can fly and I was looking forward to this but was highly disappointed because in this game... he cannot. So I recommend the game as perfect for Gamefly. Rent it, play it, then afterwards your most likely going to want to get rid of it.

Look im not here to hate on mario because he's allright. I personally like sonic alot better, but that's not going to affect my review, so i'll be honest with you. I was pretty disappointed. I'd hate to be that one person who didn't like the game, but the truth is that it was pretty weak. I don't understand how it got such a good rating. The game it'self was decent, but what i didn't care for is how easy it was.I got to world 2 in tops 7 min. COME ON NINTENDO!!!!it was a good thing i tried to savor it but still beat it in like tops a week. maybe nintendo should try something new. what i mean by that is every mario game is always the same old boring stuff. I don't care if they put him in some small go-kart and allow you to throw turtles, IT'S BORING!!! Although i am impressed at how nintendo can keep these games going.Again not hating on mario, just giving my honest review.
This game is fun and enjoyable, but it's easy to beat. First time I got it, I best it in a week. Of course you have extra levels after beating the main ones where you can play as Luigi, but it still feels lacking, and the street pass doesn't give you much. But it's not a bad game, it's definitely worth playing.
