The main issue i have is why is it on 3ds and not ds?.. The 3d is of no use at all, surely this game would have been better and sold more on ds? Anyway its typical Mario stuff, good graphics, jolly music, lots of secrets and a good co op mode. More stuff to come via download which is either good or cheeky depending on your view. Still worth 4 stars as its slick and fun but it is VERY similar to new super mario bros 1.
