If you're buying for co-op, read this.
on February 3, 2014
A paint by numbers Mario platformer that does little whatsoever to evolve the series. Primary selling point is the co-op multiplayer. However co-op suffers terribly due to the constant unavoidable collisions of players bashing into one another. Due to this failure of game design, players will constantly kill one another due to accidentally jumping on each others' heads or knocking each other off ledges, etc. If players could simply pass through one another like ghosts without colliding, the co-op would have been awesome. As it is... the co-op is a broken aggravating mess. Take away the co-op, and you're stuck with a cookie cutter Mario platformer that doesn't live up to the NES and SNES glory days by a mile.
