We are huge Mario lore experts in my family, and so naturally, we anticipated the release of this game with great excitement! Sadly, the excitement ended within the first 20 minutes of gameplay. Parents, I strongly encourage not letting your kids play this game! Thank God I had the sense to preview this before letting my kids play it ! “Scary” doesn’t even begin to describe the sick, twisted, nightmarish things that the creators at Nintendo decided would be appropriate to include in a game that they know 6 year olds will be playing! Who is making this stuff? Alford Hitchcock? The creators of this game should be ashamed of themselves. They took “scary” way too far, even to the point of sadistic. I am horrified as a parent, and there is NO WAY I am letting my children play this. You destroyed Mario...good job, Nintendo. You guys are sickos! Parents, beware!
