Super Mario 3D World Shows Us Why We Still Love Mario

CCC Says: "After my brief gameplay session with Super Mario 3D World at E3 this year, I came away having enjoyed my time, but not blown away by the presentation. It seemed like another typical entry to the series, one that would likely garner high critic scores while still feeling like a rehash of old features. Now that I've seen the incredible new trailer for the game showcased in the most recent Nintendo Direct, I have thrown that preconception right out the window. Yes, it may look like a conglomeration of past Mario platformers, but there's enough new features, as well as tweaks to old conventions, that I'll go out on a limb and forecast Super Mario 3D World as the best game of the longstanding series."

"that I'll go out on a limb and forecast Super Mario 3D World as the best game of the longstanding series"

Every new game that comes out is the "best" in the series <sigh>

Seriously this game looks like nothing special, it's a console version of Super Mario 3D Land with local co-op.

Why is it when you think "Finally, people are starting to realise that the same old Mario games arn't going to cut it" you have this total 180 and people are over praising the next game again.

I love Mario but really this looks nothing special. I really feel it comes down to the fact that the Wii U has no excited big games coming out soon and they feel like if they push Mario to the side it's going to spell more doom and gloom for the Wii U. You can't let Nintendo rely on Mario so often, he isn't going anywhere so I don't see why so many Mario games have to come out in the same year. Hey if it's good, it's good, it looks pretty fun but I know for a fine fact it's going to be like over rated "perfect" scores

I mean take Luigi's Mansion 2 on the 3DS, I would of rather had a full blown console sequel to that then another Mario game like this one.

I'm curious. Did you actually watch the Mario 3D World trailer that Nintendo released 2 days ago? Because it looked AWESOME.

I ask this because when Mario 3D World was first shown at this year's E3, everyone's reaction was that it looked like a console version of 3D Land with coop and that was it.

But now there are a lot of articles that denote genuine excitement for this game after its latest trailer, which showed a ton of stuff, and gave a VERY different impression of the game than the one that was shown at E3.

So, again. Have you watched that last trailer? If not, do it. Here you go:

I saw it when I watched the direct and I didn't say it didn't looked good...it just looks like stuff we've all seen before which ends up getting hyped up and get perfect scores when it really doesn't deserve it. Watch that trailer on a low quality setting and you would think it was the 3DS game. All it really has is the same stuff most Mario games have these days, nicer graphics, bright art style, new items, new enemies and that's pretty much it

I just want them to get to work on the actual Wii U spiritual successor of Super Mario 64, like how we had Sunshine on Gamecube and Galaxy on the Wii.

I'd be ticked off if this is the Wii U's spiritual successor.

I wasn't really excited about this game until the Nintendo Direct. I will be there on Nov. 22nd to get my copy. I am picking up my Xbox One with a few games and my Super Mario 3d World. Believe it or not I am more excited about my new Mario game more than anything else I am picking up that day.

aka. I didn't watch the last Nintendo Direct.

-Foxtrot1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

I did watch it....

Jeez I hate when you say something on here, the people who disagree with your opinion saying something like that, like you know what I have/haven't done.

Just don't, it's my opinion, don't like it fine but don't make s*** up like that to try and make my opinion look small. I wouldn't do it to you.

TripC501512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

Foxtrot. Chill man. Your opinion is yours. Your statement was just so nonsensical, to me, I that had to give my opinion.

"I saw it when I watched the direct and I didn't say it didn't looked good...it just looks like stuff we've all seen before"

You didnt see all the new power-ups?

The overworld taking a new twist?

Four player co-op with four unique characters?

Fresh and fantastic music?

A fresh, new, fantastic art direction?

You sound hard to please.

-Foxtrot1512d ago

Read my comment above please...I'm sick of people on here who don't read whats already there

" All it really has is the same stuff most Mario games have these days, nicer graphics, bright art style, new items, new enemies and that's pretty much it "

Adding new power ups dosen't make it different

The music is obviously going to change like how music changes in every other game out there which comes out.

Overworld new twist...again not something to brag about.

Four player co-op...which is only local, no online at all. I mean it's 2013, come on man. Not everyone can invite there buddy to their house, people have jobs, uni in other cities, work from Uni, some have kids etc.

I'm not hard to please, trust me I'm not I just don't see how those small things make it seem like such a big thing for the franchise.

I don't get why when it comes to Nintendo games and you fairly criticize them on here, people seem to become a little hostile and will disagree you to death. As I've said above, if you have your opinions fine but don't make it seem like mine is any different because you don't agree with me.

X1PS4WiiU1512d ago

Its very simple. You said its stuff we've all seen before, and what i listed, ive not seen before.

How can you counter that?

-Foxtrot1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

Small stuff like that was your argument....LOL

Whatever man

@below

"Small stuff? I listed major changes, lol"

LOL...Major changes

New powers which are in every Mario game
Music...every game out there today has new music for each game
Co-op...again it's not online, not a huge thing
Overworld "new twist", nothing to brag about

Yeah they are "major" changes alright /s

X1PS4WiiU1512d ago

Small stuff? I listed major changes, lol.

Give it up, EAD Tokyo is the best developer in the world :]
