This is the problem with todays gamers. If a gme doesn't get a 9 the game sucks. Quit playing games.
Don't change the subject. Nobody said anything bad about the scores not being 9's. I'm surprised that Nintendo Land is at 86% and it's higher than NSMBU.
There will be, just wait & watch.
Unfortunately you're right. But also, I don't think anyone suspected this Mario game of being masterful. Fun? Oh you bet. But it's not like a Mario Galaxy game by any stretch of the imagination. So an 8/10 score seems fair to me. Also this should stop people complaining about NintendoLand.
