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. --- Brawl FC - 1332 8069 6690 http://i.imgur.com/OZ9aS.png
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. --- Latest: "Mickey's Dangerous Chase (GB) review" http://whattheycallgames.blogspot.com

Just off the top of my head. Please try again.
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. --- Brawl FC - 1332 8069 6690 http://i.imgur.com/OZ9aS.png
Why are people skeptical about this game when we know so little about it?
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 --- NNID: rafiiilla http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/4797/rehash2.jpg
