So why is this game bland or bad?

NSMB2 is leagues better than this game, in terms of giving you what you expect from the series it's a part of. People are mainly complaining about that because it's more of the same with a lame hyped up reward for wasting time collecting coins.

This game has no more story than a 2D platformer Mario game, no new characters aside from your navi-type helper, and provides no real incentive to battle enemies.

In the end, I'd say they've both got the same amount of fun factor, which I will say they are actually pretty fun.

NSMB2 was more what you'd expect, but it was also an uninspired rehash with coins slapped onto it. Even with all its quirks, I give IS way more credit for trying the sticker idea as best they could than I give to the B team responsible for that ugly 3DS cash in.

It's fun, but it's a very average 2D platformer and without Mario's face on it it would've been slammed by reviewers. I think this would have at least stood a chance without Mario in it, maybe it would've done better even without the expectation.

It's not bland or bad at all. It's not TTYD, though, so be prepared if that's what you want.

It's bland because its characters are. The actual game is fun. You assume far too much about what people think about TTYD and what they'd be willing to accept.

I think they shouldv'e kept the original formula, just with partners. But then, You'd need a story and a lot harder challenge.
