Summary: My nine year old likes this game. I play with him and it is just ok. Very easy to play. Makes me a bit dizzy the way you go upside down. It is easier than the regular Marios or Zeldas. He needs very little help from me to complete. But, to easy for me. You don't even need a guide or to look up anything.

Summary: They sure do keep us waiting a long time for these 3D Mario games. The wait period between Mario Sunshine and this game was five whole years!!! To think, we wait and wait that long, we should get something spectacular right? However, it was not meant to be. The big irony about this game is, in truth, that despite all its nice features--the intricate controls, the idea of Mario flyin' 'round throo space, and the psuedo-cosmic graphics--the game is actually quite shallow,...
Summary: I terms of gameplay, graphics, originality, etc, this beats out any of the past Mario games. The graphics blew me away. It really looks like a high-quality cartoon rather than a game. The movement with the Wii remote and nunchuk feels oddly natural even after decades of playing Mario games with the classic video game controller. I also think it's pretty cool how Mario can literally run around small planets in true 3-D mode. I haven't seen another game quite like it.
Fun but frustrating....a step back to arcade Mario

Summary: If you are a great fan of the days of pure Mario platform gaming, then you will love this game. It is platform gaming at its finest...and most frustrating. My complaints are these: The camera angles are often locked, but when the camera is not fixed, your control over it is extremely limited. This can be quite toublesome, considering you are in a fully 3D environment, and to make a successful jump - especially onto a moving target - can depend entirely on your view.
Summary: Mario has always been decent games to play but I they seem to have fallen since the release of sunshine. Most of them seem to end up being the same and feel repetitive. I loved the 64 mario and was quite excited about this game. Well, although I will admit that the game was fun it was rather lame. I hate to say it but I would not recommend this game to anybody not even mario fans.
