pre-ordered this as soon as i heard it was bein released. got it 2 days ago. brill brill brill!! have been playing it on the ds for a while so i'd kinda got used to the controls. gr8 on the wii, either on your own or 2,3 or 4 player. been playing it wiv my son,can get quite frustrating on 2 player cos u gotta wait for each other and can sometimes get in each others way leading to certain death. but there's plenty that you can do together that could be helpful if u know wot your doing,seems there's plenty left to learn yet. love all the little xtra power ups and the chance to take a ride on yoshi. this game's a definite must for all mario fans!!!!
