Each of the characters you use to traverse the levels come equipped with their own skills. Mario is well rounded and has no weaknesses nor major advantages, Luigi is the highest jumper and can leap FAR beyond what any other character can, Toad is the speedster and he accelerates at an amazing pace, and last is Peach who is slow but can hover in the air to reach far ground or avoid obstacles.
You Will also encounter new items such as the Cat Bell which will be essential in some levels as it transforms you Into a Cat with power to climb walls and use a scratch attack, the double cherry which will create multiple clones of your character that will all do the exact same action. Even more items await you in the levels ahead , each unique to the situation at hand.
Super Mario 3d World is quite a different take on the formula, but doesn't stray too far from what makes Mario, Mario. A best of both worlds in a World that's 3D, this is quite the action packed game for those looking to run, jump, collect, and complete.
Super Mario 3D World is Nintendo’s new flagship game for their home console. I don’t think Nintendo has put out a bad Super Mario game in years - Super Mario Galaxy and the New Super Mario Bros games have been fantastic, but Super Mario 3D World is certainly the most beautiful game Mario has ever starred in.
The world this game presents is one of perfectly saturated cartoon colors, with fantastic and cohesive art direction, all operating at a smooth 60 frames per second. The game’s soundtrack matches perfectly, alternating between big band jazz and swelling orchestral tracks.
Unlike New Super Mario Bros, which was a 2D side-scrolling platform game, Super Mario 3D World is more like Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy, giving Mario a full 3D range of motion.
New to this game, though, are a few power-ups that haven’t yet been seen in a Mario game before. First and most prominent is the bell that turns Mario into a cat. He can swipe his claws at enemies and climb up walls and trees with ease. My favorite new power-up, though, is the double cherry. Pick one up, and your one Mario becomes two. Pick up another and two Marios are now three. You control all of them simultaneously, which is actually a lot easier than it sounds. The game manages to teach you how to do all of this without ever presenting you with a tutorial.
Super Mario 3D World is a nearly perfect Mario game. It is hard to believe the attention to detail Nintendo has applied here. This game has moved the Wii U up in my collection from a curiosity to essential, and is the one game every Wii U owner should have.
Somebody complains about the difficulty. I could agree but if you collect all the stars and stamps, you can unlock Mushroom and Flower Worlds, which are more challenging and after that, the Crown World. I have played all Mario gmes and this last world is, with no doubt, the most insane thing i have played in my life. Dark Souls was like a walk in the garden.
This is not a perfect game, but at the same time, does not deserve only four stars. The only thing i did not like was the camera control on 2 player mode.
The music: OH MY GOD! Nintendo is putting a lot on work on this. As a professional musician and composer, i consider this soundtrack one of the best i have heard the last years, along with Mario Kart 8 music. Orchestration is awesome and as always, they have that magic formula that makes you to not get bored after listening to the same tune again and again.
Without going into gory detail, here are a few of the highlights of the game. Some of the new power-ups are fantastic, cat-suit, need I say more? The Japanese stylized boards were very cool visually, musically, and they get props for incorporating the touchpad into gameplay. A favorite of ours was also the Water Dinosaur boards where both players cooperatively steered the giant beast through fun water-slide-like board. The slide boards and the run-for-your-life boards were great ways to mix it up and have fun. Incorporating the Toad mini-boards were also a nice touch to give us a sneak peak at the upcoming launch of Captain Toad!
Overall, this is a must have game. Had Nintendo released this when the Wii U first launched, they could have dominated the other platforms.
