Super Mario 3D World, the Mario entry on the Wii U

Aka the biggest disappointment ever. It's a decent game, but it's not a '3D Mario' in the same sense it was lead up to be.


I disagree. It’s a superb entry and a little underrated as a Mario game in my opinion. Level design is great and I think it has a higher quality/quantity ratio than Odyssey. It’s brilliant fun in multiplayer too.

Hmm i really enjoyed SM3DW (and Land on the 3DS). Odyssey is a great game but I preferred the level design, the harder challenge of the last one. And the soundtrack is great too

Yeah 3D World is good, it was just made out to be the next 3D Mario. Then you sit down to play and find you can only go in 8 directions and it's like what. The levels are pretty short and the game is easy until the final level. Most of the collectibles are easy to find bar maybe a few. Multiplayer can be fun, but it has the same problem as the other Marios where you end up just getting in each others' way, bouncing off and killing each other, etc.

Tbh, I probably am underselling it a bit, it just feels too much like a generic 2D mario which we have plenty of already.

Just turned my switch on and saw this on the news feed :shock:



I'm off to see easy it is now :toot:

Edit: Just found it. It's a pixel Luigi that gives you some coins, and reacts a bit if you run through him and jump on him

How disappointing. This was one of the leaked arts from the data mine. Guess no new kingdoms :/

Overall, i now rank this behind 64, sunshine and both galaxy games, but ahead of 3d land and 3d world.

The sheer number of stupid moons makes this game bloated for the sake of it and the levels are just not good enough. I wish the game was a bit more epic.

Upon careful reflection i would give this 8/10.

Deserves it, stunning game. :toot:

That is a truly astonishing number of sales given how early we are in the lifespan of the Switch as well - I'm not sure if any PS4 exclusives are regularly hitting that number of sales now and that's in an install base that must be about 5x higher!

It’s a fantastic attach rate on hardware numbers of 18m
