Excerpt: Per Aidan) When I got to Petey the Piranha, I didn't expect him to come out. When I 1st fought him, he was hard to beat. It took me a day to beat him. HINT=when Petey goes in the ground, if you have a fire flower, make sure you blow them on Petey.
Pros: Challenging, Fun To Play, Good Audio, Graphics, Kid Appropriate
Summary: Liked it, but found it a little confusing with the controls. You had to control all 4 characters at once at times and my son found it difficult. Also, you don't actually get to attack sometimes, it does it for you.
My 6 year old liked it for a while. My 9 year old is too old for this.

Summary: Like all these over priced cartridges my kids love them for a month or so and then grow tired of it. I did ask my kids what they thought of the game before writing this review (6 and 9). They simply gave me the standard answer, "It's OK, it's fun". However, I can tell my 9 year old daughter has outgrown the meager value and simplistic nature of the DS.
Summary: Generally, I enjoyed this game. It had good gameplay, very humorous dialog by the characters, decent graphics and interesting places to explore. I just wish the final boss battle wasn't so tediously difficult. Every time I thought I had beaten it, it would mutate into another form and then the fight would start again. I didn't have the patience to stick with it and finish the game. Oh well, at least 99% of it was fun.
Summary: Ok so this game is alot like "Mario and Luigi Superstar saga" But its alot nicer. You go around finding out the story as you go through dungons and fight enemies in a taking turns attacking style fights. the graphics are great and smooth and overall its a good fun game! and I would say the time it takes to beat it is good because it takes a Good 15-20 hours to beat so it doesnt end too fast but your not playing this game for years and years waiting for it to end.
Summary: Overall ,the game was really good, but compared to the prequel it didn't quite stack up. Due to the addition of two more characters, the battle sequences are terribly complex, and often very confusing even after you've played the game for a while. Also, a lot of the movement abilities that Mario and Luigi had in "Superstar Saga" are gone. that means that the special bro attacks that were based off them have also disappeared.
Summary: I think that kids who know Mario and Luigi would really like this game. But just to warn you, it is a little too hard once you reach Bowser's castle. I think it's really cool because once you have completed Time Hole 1, there is a very cool shop open where I like to buy stuff. I think this game is good for boys and girls, ages 5-8 who can read. -- S.
