AWESOME Game!

This game is awesome for all ages. Extremely little violence, and Mario is doing all of this with good intentions. however Bowser might be scary for young kids.

AMAZING FAMILY GAME!!!!

This is incredible. If there are younger kids playing, they can get in a bubble and have the older people do the work and get through the levels. I won’t spoil things. You’ll love this game!

A fun platformer for up to four players.

This Mario platformer is less "Super Mario Galaxy" and more "New Super Mario Bros." in that it is less creative with its level designs than Galaxy and more traditionally "Mario" (meaning more grassy land, more Goombas and Koopa Troopas, less stuff that has't been seen before). That doesn't mean it's bad, in fact, it's really good. Just not as good as Super Mario Galaxy 2, which is hard to top. This is a 3D platformer, meaning it's not side-scrolling, the characters can go in various directions. The levels are still linear, though less so than in Super Mario 3D Land on the 3DS. The story is slightly different from the usual: Instead of capturing Peach, Bowser captures the Sprixie princesses and runs away to the Sprixie Kingdom. Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad go after him. One notable addition to the game is that you can play as either Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, or an unlockable character I'm not going to spoil. They each have different strengths and weaknesses. Luigi can jump high, but has low traction on his feet (couldn't he just get different shoes?). Princess Peach can hover for a short time after jumping, but runs slower. Toad runs the fastest, but also falls to the ground the fastest. Mario's biggest strength is that he doesn't have any weaknesses, and his biggest weakness is that he doesn't have any weaknesses (he's the all-around balanced type). I won't spoil the unlockable character, but you can probably figure out her strengths and weaknesses just by playing as her. This is the first 3D Mario platformer to be fully multiplayer (not counting that Co-Star Luma in Super Mario Galaxy 2, which is more of an assistant than a playable character). Using your favorite character while playing with other people can make for a fun time. The level designs are good, but, as I said, less creative than Galaxy's levels. They are suited for optimal multiplayer play. Speaking of multiplayer play, it's fun. As long as you can work together, that is. If you can't, be prepared for an argument over which direction to go. And one problem with the controls is that the run button is the same as the grab button, so you will most likely end up accidentally picking up your teammates when you are just trying to go faster. They could have made the grab button one of the unused shoulder buttons instead. But that criticism is just slightly above being a nitpick. A great part of the game is the introduction of the Cat power-up. When one of the characters gets a Super Bell, they turn into Cat Mario, or Cat Luigi, etc. Then they can climb up walls, which helps you get some secret treasure to help you unlock some bonus levels. You can also swipe at enemies with cat claws. That's cool. My favorite part of the game is the Captain Toad levels, where you get to play as Captain Toad, a treasure hunter that can't jump. His inability to jump makes for some cool strategic levels. Nintendo made Captain Toad one of the stars of his own game: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Though, in hindsight, I think Super Mario 3D World is better than Captain Toad (but that one's good, too). In addition, if you either complete the main quest of Super Mario 3D World or have played New Super Luigi U, there is a game unlocked on the title screen called “Luigi Bros.” This is a remix of the arcade game “Mario Bros.” where Mario has to jump from below to knock over turtles and crabs, except this time, Mario has the physics of Luigi, jumping higher and sliding more. Overall, Super Mario 3D World is good, but doesn't reach the soaring heights of Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Fun game—nothing objectionable.!

There’s nothing wrong with this game. It’s a bit hard to learn but its fun. Has multiplayer. Nothing scary of objectionable. The game is very cute and colorful
