This is a Mario game as you would expect. Differences that I hadn't seen on previous consoles are a little blue mushroom which makes you into tiny mario and a blue shell that mario can wear! Oh and there is also an enormous mushroom that makes mario into a giant who can crash through the level destroying everything in his way! That is great fun!
The other great thing about this game is the mini games. There are LOADS and they are so addictive! There are puzzles, card games, adventure games, etc etc. I have lost hours paying these mini games!!
The 2 player function is also great - you can play this with a friend and only need one copy of the game. Its Mario vs Luigi and the objective is to run round a level trying to jump on each others heads to gain a star - the person with the most stars when the time runs out wins! This can get very conpetitive and is fanctasic fun!
It has taken me a good amount of time to complete as it is the right difficulty level for me (im a 24 year old girl who has played mario games since I was very young!)
A great game for anyone!
