IGN - 5 Unexpected Joys of Super Mario 3D World

Marty Sliva - Wii U's biggest game of the year isn't afraid to shake things up, and we couldn't be happier.

It's been quite a while since a proper Mario game has left me genuinely surprised. While almost always enjoyable, the past half-decade or so of the series has generally delivered a suite of things comprised solely of my own personal assumptions. Not since the original Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 has Nintendo blindsided me with the unexpected. So you can probably imagine how pleased I was to get my hands on a small slice of Super Mario 3D World and walk away genuinely surprised in the best possible way. (Super Mario 3D World, Wii U)

Looks awesome, but would you consider it a console seller? I am getting a Wii U, but not specifically for this. (Smash Bros.)

Put it this way:

- Between the releases of Super Mario 3D Land, MK7 and LoZ: Ocarina of Time 3D ~ the 3DS did a complete 180 in the sales department. The system was flat-lining until those titles got released.

If that's anything to go by, 3D World coupled with Wind Waker HD and next year's release of MK8 should boost sales quite a bit.

This is, without a doubt, the definition of a killer app. Its a system seller, for sure.

Damn you Nintendo you showed me why you are the GOAT ( Greatest of all time) of the video game world. People will dismiss this as just another mario world title. But we never saw single player action until todays demo multiplayer was all across the board. I live alone and would rather a single player adventure so I can get the most out of everything and Nintendo did not disappoint.

It gives me the feeling that this game will be a love letter to super mario 2, and thats is an amazing thing.

I'm not impressed by this at all so far. It just doesn't look as good as Mario galaxy did. I hope i'm wrong when I play it but this is the least excited i've ever been about a Mario game and i've owned every Nintendo console ever made. I don't like the cat power up or the shadow levels. If its even 75% as good a Galaxy it will still be worth buying.
