Seeing the latest trailer of Super Mario 3D World definitely shows they still got what it takes...their creative well hasn't dried up. I was one of the those that thought it was "meh" at first but now it is my most wanted game for the holiday season. It reminds me of their galaxy games which were some of their most creative highs.

New power ups/same function

Pirrahna plant eats things... LIke Yoshi
Bullet Head fires projectiles... Like fire flower
Cherry creates clones who copy your moves... What new gameplay does this open up? Has Nintendo actually got any ideas for clones? Or is it just for attacking enemies?
Clear pipes? You can see through and change directions at junctions, this barely even qualifies as a new feature
Cat Mario can climb any walls, well that is a genuinely new thing Mario couldn't do before (Nintendo are copying Sonic Team and Knuckles!)

The Galaxy power ups were different, they genuinely changed gameplay, like the spring, spinning top/drill, the boulder. The bee suit didn't do much new though.

It's not that Nintendo has changed much. It's just people who grew up with them are getting old and bitter and longing for their childhoods. If you are someone like me who never really lost the joy they found in gaming all those years ago then you would still be a fan. Some people think growing up means you gotta trade in all those cutesy games for Shooters and hardcore violence driven games. You know if it says mature on the box suddenly you've become a man and aren't allowed to enjoy kiddie stuff anymore. At least that's how alot of these teenagers think sadly.
I'm 34 and still play Mario, Zelda, Kirby and all that stuff as well as the more mature titles.

You're just desperate to put down anything about the game you can aren't you.

All combat in games typically boils down to some base elements such as punching, projectiles, etc. Powerups also tend to have similar base elements. But in Galaxy, the Bee Suit didn't play anything like the red star.

If you watched some gameplay, you can see that clones are actually used in a very interesting way, as you can split up the team to solve puzzles.

The Clear pipes create a pac-man like maze.

Exactly I am just like this too!!! I am constantly surprised by Nintendo and I've grown up with them since 89'

as for the cherry, considering the the clone mimics your exact movements but stays a foot or two away, there will apparently be segments where you have to clone yourself and thengo to a split path and make sure the clone steps on switches to open doors for you and such.
