Seeing the bad critics of Mario 3D World...

#1rafiiillaPosted 7/3/2013 8:16:04 AM
Did Mario Galaxy was instantly praised and claimed as the best 3D Mario by the general public?
How did you feel about it at first sight?

I remember I didn't like it until I played it

It was because the game looked like something new. I can admit that much. It looked like it would be a great game before you even played it. Plus, we weren't at the point where Nintendo decided to start re-using level themes all the time.

Not like it matters though. The Galaxy games re-use the same level themes that the New Super Mario Bros. games do. Only you're in space.

Not at all.

I remember a ton of backlash when it was first announced due to the small planets instead of the bigger levels of 64 and Sunshine.

Now people are upset about 3D Land's gameplay in a new Mario title.

I'm not exactly "normal." Hope this isn't a problem.

This is exactly my thought. I hope the game feels fun and nice once I play it (right now I'm a bit weary about it)

I think that people were just skeptical at how well the planetoid system was going to be handled, and rightly so; it was a bold move to take for next Mario, and it could have been screwed up badly.

More villains need to be protagonists. BIS proves it can work.
Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!

Well here's something positive: http://whattheycallgames.blogspot.com/2013/06/why-linearity-in-3d-mario-isnt-bad-thing.html

Though maybe linearity isn't the reason people are being critical of it. In any case, I still think it has the potential to be awesome.

Why are people skeptical about this game when we know so little about it?

No need. You misunderstand me. The common world themes we see in the New Super Mario Bros. games are represented through galaxies in the galaxy games. We got a ghost galaxy in both games (essentially a ghost house), a lava world, an ice world, a beash/water world, etc.

I never said that was all the galaxy games did. I just said that they re-used those themes.

That's exactly why I made this topic. I don't remember (and couldn't find) any first impressions of the 1st Mario Galaxy, and I wanted to compare if the reaction was something similar with Mario 3D World
