Less than a 9? For a big Mario release? FROM IGN?!

Guess the cheque didn't clear :p

Lol you're better off with gamespot for mario games than IGN. Great games for sure but then can be a bit generous (9.5 for Super Mario 3D Land).
Instigator  +   1289d ago
Yeah, IGN didn't have enough money so they could only get a beta version.

8.5 is a great score, doesnt mean its a bad game
live2play  +   1289d ago
and a 9.5 for gameplay alone makes it a great mario game

There's just only so much you can do with a 2d plat former before it got really old a really long time ago, Mario galaxy however, I knock the dust off that s*it!

I always say that its solid but nothing new yet ppl dont seem to understand.. Its evident that all the reviewers of the game are saying the same thing.. Im still buying this but only cuz it seems to be a modernized mario bros 3.. That was my favorite & fighting the kupalings was always a joy even if theyre repetitive & easy.. Damn u nintendo! This game isnt worth $40

"game are saying the same thing"

isnt that the WHOLE point of making the new super mario bros. franchise?

people asked for classic, 2-D mario games and nintendo delivered just that! and its proven by how much the new super mario bros on wii outsold mario galaxy.

do you really think if ms, sony, EA or any other developer would not do the same thing if they have a massively successful franchise on the same magnitude as mario games?

and CoD gets a 9 every year? wtf....
MasterCornholio  +   1289d ago
Well then since a 9 is greater than an 8.5 that means that Call of Duty is better than this Mario game.

Lol im just kidding, in my opinion call of duty is an overrated franchise.

Even though IGN gave this game an 8.5 it's still a good game and that's what people should care about.

Must every game be compared to cod? Seriously a 2d portable plat former v an HD console/ pc online fps? I choose death!
