Replaying 3d world I came to the conclusion that this is a modern gem.

It's an extension of the thinking behind the design for Galaxy. Basically, they took away the ability to explore and veer off the beaten path, and they forced you to collect stars in a specific order using a specific means of doing so. 3D World is this idea taken to the next level because now you can't even control the camera, and they brought back the timer to force you to rush you through the level. It's the ghost of the 2D Marios coming back to haunt the 3D ones.

Some fans like to claim that platforming is what Mario is about and it's all he should ever be about, and they've praised the mostly boring Galaxy games for bringing him back to his roots, but then when the idea reaches its logical conclusion (3D World), they complain and ask for Galaxy 3 (lol, go figure).


u can control the camera

Lol. So it's bad that a platformer is actually a platformer? That's like saying Resident Evil Revelations is worse than Resident Evil 6 because it went too close to the series roots in comparison.
