Let me say this. I'm a huge fan of New Super Mario Bros Wii. This game was really bland, lifeless, and also short to me.

...Yes and no. It's fun to play, but doesn't have an identity of its own and is quite forgettable and disappointing. Since you like 2-D Mario games though, I'd say go for it.

It's more of the same stuff. That being said, if you liked NSMB or NSMB Wii/WiiU then this is a solid buy in my opinion.

It's not bad but it's pretty bland compared to many other 2D Mario games. I would not recommend it and I've played all main 2D Marios.

It's better than DS NSMB, but worse than the Wii NSMB.

Well... it's Mario. That in itself doesn't mean it's bad, but it feels very cashed in, with little to no effort compared to other games in the series. The first game was a revival, the Wii version was a few years later, then NSMB2 and U happened too closely together, highlighting how crap NSMB2 was.

Thanks for the input everyone i appreciate! it BTW what was their motive with the all Gold Coin stuff? they really put an emphasis on coins for some reason.
