Why does everyone like the kuriboh's shoe? It only appeared in one level. Next thing you'll know people will want the mega mushroom back in 50 years.

Um, because it would allow boundless creativity via user level design and level sharing online?

That's as pointless as having a level editor in Final Fantasy or Zelda.

There's this platformer out there that has a level editor. It's called LittleBigPlanet. You may have heard of it.
That pretty much proves why a level editor in a Mario game would rock.

Most of the 'hard bits' from this game comes from trying to collect ALL the coins you can, some are in dangerous areas, etc. IF you avoid the coins altogether, then what is the purpose of playing a game which main focus is to collect 'as many coins as you can'? Anyone can blaze through a game by just trying to find an exit. It's the hunting for coins thats what NSMB2 is all about. I wonder if NSMB3 will be "avoid coins at all costs?" lol

So you're saying I shouldn't play the game at all? I'm 100%'ing all the star coins + secrets at a very fast rate but the coin spam is just ridiculous as I've accumulated 100+ lives in the first world alone.

I will say the level designs are very... interesting. Fun. Creative. I like them. A lot. The first world is pretty swell, too, as I found the expected reused themes to be somewhat nonexistent. Or in English: There may be reused themes, enemies and even songs, but the layouts and backgrounds are completely different (most of the time). Maybe evaluating a Mario isn't such a good idea? :P

I agree. I want to complete the game, a tiny bit of extra glitter on my select screen makes no difference to me.

It's very lazy. The Galaxy duo released two years n between one another whereas the handheld New series released six years from another. The difference? The Galaxy games were actually full fledged sequels with new and remixed music, completely different levels, new, original gimmicks, new power ups and so on.

This game rehashes ideas from Super Mario World and power ups from SMB3 and plays it too safe by being essentially a New Super Bros. 1.5 or in other words, an expansion pack.

Just for you.

You only got 100 lives in the first world? You're going to need more than that if you want to get one of the stars.

Kachou on!

One of the requirements to get one of the five stars on your profile is too get 3 Crowns worth of lives. Speaking of which now that anyone has it I can't seem to find a Star Coin in World 1... nah maybe I should keep looking for it...

Why are you surprised? I mean, The NL review stated multiple times that it doesn't do much that's actually new. It's not like this was a big secret.

I knew there wouldn't be much new ideas but I bought the game anyway because I love my 2D Mario games. And since I knew what to expect I adjusted my expectations accordingly and I still enjoy the game a lot.

He's not surprised. He's stated before that's exactly what he was expecting.

Btw I want to say, you can gain your shiney stars back. Just beat the stage normally, that you used the White Tanooki Suit on.

So then, why complain? I mean, if you buy something knowing exactly what you're getting into, how can you complain about it anyway?

It wasn't like he was complaining really. He was just answering my question. If anything I'd be more inclined to view it as constructive criticism to the game?

I only read reviews when I'm not too sure about a new game coming out. And those reviews that I read are never NL's.

I knew there wouldn't be much new ideas but I bought the game anyway because I love my 2D Mario games. And since I knew what to expect I adjusted my expectations accordingly and I still enjoy the game a lot.

My expectations were so low, all of the small new ideas were surprising as I didn't expect them. But overall it's a pretty rehashed expansion. Just like Mario Tennis Open, Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land were.

I'm not the one to judge a game without playing it first. For buying this for $40 and having the word "New!" in the title, it's not very new.

I lowered my expectations way before I bought mine. Like I said, presentation wise, 90% of it is lazy. However the level designs are really clever and well done.
