This game is simply great. The gameplay is fabulous and it plays just like a classic Mario game from the early 90s. The graphics are great and switching between 3d and 2d is well executed, innovative and fun.
However, the amount of text that appears in the cut scenes is infuriating and becomes so tiresome that you end up skipping most of it anyway.
Overall a great game which will appeal to anyone used to the originals. A must have ! ! !
