  Great Platform Game!

| | See all NintendoGamer's reviews (4)

I Got this game just after i got my DS, i have already completed it three times. This game brings back memories of mario bros. Not only can you play by yourself but you can also play minigames (1-4 players) Or play against a friend in mario .vs. luigi (1-2 players) Great game and a must buy.

Like most people i wondered why a game out so long ago was still selling at almost full price so i bought it and found it is totally addictive! I could play it for hours and it brought back great memories of the original game too! Fantastic buy!

great game, but not quite as good as super mario bros or super mario bros. 3 on nes. better than the over rated super mario world on snes (prob gonna get killed for sayin that but just my opinion). If you like a challenge DON'Tbuy. i am by no means a great gamer an i found this incredibly easy, some people might find it too easy. I am giving it 5 stars though because1.) it's nintendo, 2.) it's a mario game and 3.) its still better than most games out today (including wii ps3 an 360)

  Classic Non Stop Fun!

| | See all gorgeousgames's reviews (44)

Plenty of action-packed levels with great graphics! This is by far the best Mario yet! Have been addicted but i finally got over that! Fun for all ages but would be difficult for young kids (i find it hard mysen!). In conclusion buy it or miss it!

  Excellent value for money

With the main game and all the extra mini games this will keep you entertained for hours.
Hope they're going to bring more out.
Totally addictive & completely frustrating (in a good way) at times.

  hope there's more to come

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!

Well if u like Mario you should get this anyway no matter what but i completed this in about 4 hours of play over two days dont let that put you off its one of the better platformer games on the ds if your wanting a mario challenge a short one at that for the older gamer or a mario fix get this

Con: some younger gamers will find some of the levels frustrating
Con: end of levels bosses fair to easy to beat

  A lot of fun

The classic 2D gameplay of the original games returns with some nice graphics and additional updates. The worlds are distinctive and vary a lot, the levels are imaginative and occasionally challenging and the game is so damn fun to play. One gripe I have is the lack of point in collecting coins - as far as I can see, you collected them simply to earn a use-once upgrade such as the mega-mega mushroom, and then they're gone. There could have been more of a reward system like with Kirby Canvas Curse, which has a similar three-medal per level idea. Apart from that, expect the same kind of gameplay as any 2D mario but with updated graphics; and I don't think there has ever been even an average Mario game - this keeps the bar set as high as ever.
