I also think NSMB, and DKCR, influenced this title.

And it deserves them from what I've played of the demo :D

even if the game is really good, [email protected] and theirs attorney on n4G each time they are giving a 7 to the best games/ps3 exclusives.

i know we can't compare scores from different consoles, but they are proving again that they are giving "real" scores (near the metascores) for wii and xbox, but not for ps3.
