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.

Summary: In terms of ambition of plots and themes, this Mario is up there with the best of them. The cosmological language of the game is particularly satisfying! And the levels being based on space rocks, on which you have to navigate sideways and upside down, is counter-intuitive; but again welcomed, as...
