This game was fun, period. It wasn't anything groundbreaking but it was very fun to play. The gameplay is very unique and easy to just pick up and play but i felt I needed a little more from the choices with the water gun thing. The levels are very wacky and the graphics are nice but they're all kiddie, bubbles, flowery, happy. The CAMERA however is a whole different story. I spent 10 minutes on a simple jumping puzzle because the camera acted weirder (they won't let me say the R word) than Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore. Okay, weirder than Adam Sandler in ANY movie (including Spanglish). Seeing how multiplayer would've been so much fun in this game it's nothing more than a 7 rating. It's worth a rent...
It seems like Mario is thrown on everything to help Nintendo sell games. On the other hand, this is a pretty solid game from nintendo. While it isn't one of my favorites, it's certainly worth a rent.
Pros: Fast paced, fun gameplay Fun minigames
Cons: Too much of what we've seen before, coins, mushrooms, bowser, stars and seriously, how many times can the princess be captured? To much "basic" adventure game stuff. (Jump from platform to platform, jump on top of enemies, etc)
