I found this much more fun as a party game than a Mario game. While I appreciate the throwback to 2D, I prefer the Super Mario Galaxy series to this. But, I guess as long as you have friends along, the good times keep rolling with this title - often into pits of lava.

Nintendo gets it right with this throw-back platformer game. Nintendo went back to their Mario roots and came out with a hit. The multi-player capability with 4 players can get really crazy, but also makes it really fun. Especially when you can eat up your teammate with Yoshi and spit him into a pit!

About Time This Was Thought Of

It's about time they thought of creating a co-op Mario 2D platformer. You need to be careful so you don't kill your co-player(s) but if you do this one is a heck of a lot of fun. Finding the 3 big coins in each level adds a little depth and replay value and the new items spices it up a bit. Is it as good as Mario Bros. 3?...No. But if you have a Wii you should own this one.

By the way, it's fun to play by yourself, too. It doesn't take away from the game in my opinion.

Nintendo Proves They Still Know the Formula.

Nintendo's “Mario” franchise has a long and illustrious history. Starting as the launch title that made their first foray into game consoles, the NES, a stunning success in a clinically dead videogame market, games featuring the chubby Italian plumber set a remarkable precedent by getting better and better with each sequel. By “Super Mario Bros. 3,” it seemed that Nintendo had absolutely perfected the formula, only to have the SNES launch title, “Super Mario World,” come along and set the bar for platfomer games even higher with small gamplay refinements and a more user-friendly save system.

Then the unthinkable happened: The 3D Revolution. Mario was suddenly thrust into a world of polygons and analog sticks with the N64. While hailed as the Best Thing Ever by most reviewers, it was sm...
