played it for about four hours...felt like 10 hours. the levels were creative enough to want me to keep playin, but it was slow. dialogue was tedious. if u a die hard fan u'll love it, but if u looking for some "mario world" type fast paced action. don't bother... like me, u'll be disappointed
Text...text...text...text- ...walk to point b...text...text..text...t- ext...maybe action, nope, false alarm...text...text...text.
Maybe this game picks up after the first 4 hours of text and walking around. I couldn't make it past the first 30 minutes and I was zooming through the text as fast as I could. All of the needless dialog is a huge drag on this game. I was expecting more of a platformer experience with some Roll Playing elements. Instead of got what I illustrated above. Unless you are into reading a lot in your video games I don't recommend getting this game. I returned it the day after I received it. I'm even considering selling my Wii.
Got the Wii so we could all play together. This game is nothing like the Mario from back in "the day"; basically it sucked. There was so much dialog, we couldn't stand it. Then when you finally got to play, there was nothing but simple running around with little point to it. The old Mario was a fast-action game. And one of the last ones my wife and I have played it years. Maybe we were just expecting too much.
