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.
Mario is back in a all new adventure saving Princess Peach using all new power-ups like the tanooki suit,boomerang suit and propeller box.Next,Mario runs around in 3d levels facing new enemies,searching for star coins.Last,extra challenges are challenges where you trade mystery boxes and this is why you buy this game.
