@Cheezy I admit, I was a bit skeptic about this one at first, but when my cousin bought it as an impulse buy (he owns Mario vs. DK 2, one of his favorite videogames of all time), he urged me to purchase it. I had the points, so I got it and almost instantly named it my favorite DSiWare download, even edging out MFC!, which I had previously seen unbeatable. I don't own the previous Minis, but I've played it at his house and tried the trial version, which, in my inexperience, I found hard. But the trial was a cakewalk compared to the one and a half worlds I've completed in this version thus far. The boss battles are extremely similar to those of the last game (according to my cousin), with only very minor differences. However, just when you think you've seen every boss battle before in the last one, think again... The many changes to regular gameplay include: Doors with timers that activate once one Mini enters them, frequently used pink blocks that you can arrange in many shapes, Shy Guys with spears (that means no more falling on top of one and living anymore), more powerful versions of old enemies plus some new ones, different rewards for collecting the MINIMARIO cards, a higher difficulty all around, and more. The Basement and Rooftop are once again included (they're not part of the main four worlds) and an awesome prize or two (involving the bosses) awaits completionists. Yet, none of that is the real highlight of this fantastic game; the online community takes the cake. Nintendo is planning on supplying you with new levels created by them, and the online community has been great so far. Friend codes are not required but make it easier to get levels from certain people. There are Top Rated and Lastest searches available when browsing for levels, though you can't type in the name of a particular one and find it. The actual level editor is extremely robust, with templates and items from many different "story" levels to aid you in your level creating. In closing, this is the best $8 I've spent in a long while. P.S. The only reason this might not be for you is if you didn't enjoy Mario vs. DK 2, and even then I'm sure you'd love it, if only for the sheer volume of the game. But hey, miss out on it now if you want, wait for it to be lauded by the reviews, and regret not buying it sooner.

Yes, I do love the previous one, and was just playing it the other day. I don't feel like I'm missing out, since I own MvsDK 2, though.

Yeah, get Swords and Soldiers, one of the best games on WiiWare, now, and when you have some cash floating around (sometime), grab Mario vs. DK.

To think people were afraid of there being little to no levels in this game. Looks like the total tally comes to 100 (8 boss stages). I was starting to think this game was a bit easy until I beat the first four floors, after which I was presented with Floor 1+. Yup, there are forty more (tougher) levels to master, not to mention the quite challenging rooftop and basement levels.

For eight bucks, this is quite a value.

My thoughts exactly.

Mario Vs. DK 3 is way better than 2. Its defiantly harder than the 2nd. The first one is still the best.
