formula unfortunately got stale by this point

If you played any of the Super Mario Bros games then you already played this one.

This game feels soulless and generic. It can be fun and there are a couple levels with some great design. I like that the yoshis sing and the back guys dance to the stage music. But this game is just boring. It’s not horrible but in comparison to what Nintendo has and can develop this just isn’t fun. Don’t waste your time.

tipping point for me with new 2d mario shit. it’s like the fourth game like this; ugly as hell samey levels with an uninteresting OST (ba baaa)
but, like every new 2d mario thing, co-op is a riot.

Just as fun as SMB Wii!

Squirrel Suit my beloved

I’ll never be able to un-hear the screams heard while playing through Run For It
