To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It felt really short compared to the last few Mario 3D games--Sunshine through Galaxy 2. Certainly a lot of detail and fun--the most I've seen in a while (especially the mini games), but I got punched in the gut with ending credits in less than 14 hours of play. Obviously its a big open world and more time can be spent there unlocking more stuff, but I can't shake the feeling something is missing here.
There is a new mode in there assist mode which is amazing, you start with 9 hearts instead of 3 and you can buy some and more around the mario world. Note the ending is pretty hard but fun, this is the only check point i hate in the game because it makes you start all over again other then that its all good.
Much easier then Mario Galaxy 1 and 2.... but its kind of short.
Probably not the best Mario game *ever* or whatever some critics/reviewers may say, but it's a solid contender, and definitely up there with SM64, kind of an instant classic. Nothing terribly new, but it's still a very good and accessible Mario game. Also very rewarding; I can play just 5 mins and still be able to find or collect some secret items. You can play this game really at any pace, either for a few hours or like I said for 5 mins. There are a few issues with controls like the camera or certain maneuvers that can be sloppy, but otherwise this is a great and classic game to have among many others on Switch.
It's a fun game that is reminiscent of Super Mario 64, with awesome visuals, cool new gameplay mechanics, and an intriguing story ( for a Mario game ). There are also some interesting characters throughout the game, however, there are just as many characters that fall flat. However, the greatest weakness of this game by far is that it becomes monotonous, as it quickly devolves into a game of hunt and find for power moons.
Decent game. Very typical of MARIO games, which says it all. It is exactly what you expect, above average, but it doesn’t reach amazing. Lots of extras to look for and find, so the game will definitely keep you busy if you want to be a conpletionist.
