Metacritic

Zappi: People are downplaying this one because it doesn’t “push gaming forward” or whatever. Pfffffft. It’s got what I want: clean simple graphics, responsive controls and brilliant level design. Nobody does this better than Nintendo.

Iwata asks

CraigG : This has managed to slightly delay my desire to sell my Wii. I loved New Super Mario on the DS and this is just more of the same. While most of the power-ups are re-skinned from previous Mario adventures, there is a great variety that (like SMB 3) helps keep the game fresh. I guess the main appeal here is nostalgia; I got Mario Bros 3 on the NES for my birthday at an impressionable age. It’s just so endlessly fun to have the same gameplay mechanics in the familiar desert, ice, air, etc, scenarios but with all new levels!

If: Would be on my top ten for the frenzied, hotly contested multiplayer alone, even if it didn’t have a single player with its share of classic moments as well.

Miyamoto talks

Jamescobo: Granted, it was awfully light on content, but the addition of multiplayer effectively makes the game endless in a way LittleBigPlanet could only dream of.

JeffLevine: A 2-D Mario game? For most gamers, that’s probably all I need to say. If it hadn’t released in the middle of a crowded holiday season when there were so many other games to play and without online, I certainly would’ve ranked it even higher.
