The Verdict

Super Mario Galaxy 2 successfully iterated on one of the most inventive platformers of the last console generation. Super Mario 3D World takes slightly smaller steps in the grand scheme of the platformer genre, but it fulfills the promise of a multiplayer Mario much better than anything that the Japanese game maker has done before. Super Mario 3D World is marvelous, and its constant variety and fantastic light-hearted co-op play proves that Nintendo still knows exactly how to tweak their Mario formula in fun ways.

Moshi moshi.

 

Super Mario 3D Land was cool also, brought back the gameplay of the original Mario Bros games. The only thing that kind of sort of bothered me is the worlds felt sort of too much like game courses. Of course, they always were, with floating blocks and all, but I guess it felt sort of disguised. Whats will all the guard railings here surrounding the game area making it kid-proof?

Looks like I will be getting a Wii U after all (wouldn't have dreamed of getting one a year ago)

Reasons:

  1. Xbone and PS4 are a huge disappointment, so will wait until the price goes down and the shrunken versions appear.
  2. I hardly play games at all, these days
  3. The only game that could drag me out of retirement, Bayonetta 2, is, at least for now, a Wii U exclusive.
  4. I might start gaming a little with my 6-year-old son, and the Wii U will have more games which are suitable for him.
  5. Mario

Looks great.

 

I almost spit out my mouth full of Coke when the Japanese voice over guy said, "Meeeooowwww" :)

Considering nintendo is the reason bayonetta 2 exists, i doubt its wii u exclusivity will ever change.

That looks a lot more interesting and fun than I expected. Not as stupidly 3d as the first 3d game when nite do first decided to get on the 3d craze and make everything 3d before games where ready for it back on the GameCube.

But... Where's Yoshi.... :(

It's a shame most people have the same thought as you about not getting one.  I'll admit the original $350 pricetag was a lot for me to accept based on only 1 real launch title that I wanted (Mario Bros).  But after playing through Mario, Lego City Undercover, and just recently Wii Party U, Wii Fit U and Sports Club I feel like its a great secondary option for gaming.  Sure I'll have my xbox one for CoD, Forza, etc but when I want to just relax and mess around.. I'll grab the gamepad.  Cant wait for Friday

Yea, galaxy was the closest they came. Both were great games just not the same as the 3d ones

 

Only two of the best damned games ever made.

If was stranded on an island and could only have one game with me, it would be SMG2.

Please say this uses the Wii U Pro Controller and not any of that motion control crap.

 

Talking of which, is the Wii U Pro Controller the only controller that will work? They're £38 to buy :|

The game can also be played using the Wii Remote (Plus) alone, the Wii Remote with Nunchuk, the Classic Controller (Pro), and the Wii U Pro Controller.

Sweet.
 
Do you think the game controls will work 100% with the older Wii (Classic and Classic Pro) controllers? I hope so, they're much cheaper to buy.
 
Price info., in case people are interested :):

  • Wii Classic Controller - White (2006) - £12
  • Wii Classic Controller Pro - Black (2009) - £16
  • Wii Classic Controller Pro - White (2009) - £24
  • Wii Classic Controller Pro - Red (2011) - £24
  • Wii U Pro Controller - Black (Nintendo Wii U) (2012) - £38

I guess what I'm asking is, why buy the Wii U Pro Controller over the Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro?

According to the video the main player uses the pad, the other can use either the classic wand or a pro controller.
