Started out this game and got into the first 2 hours of it. What I saw I loved. This game I think is quite under rated.

I never really got into this game. It takes all the things I dislike about Mario 64 and pushes them to the nth degree.

Words cannot describe how messed up this game is. FLUDD made Mario feel like he was carrying a rock on his back, and he felt really restricted. The setting of the game was meh, and even Yoshi was messed up (Yoshi DIES in water)! Both SM64 and SMG are far superior games and SMS might be the only actually bad Mario game.

Apparantly, it's one of the least like Mario games, but I really can't see why. It was released when I was two, but I love it now; one of my favourite games.

This is by far my favorite Mario adventure. I remember when I first played it, It was and still is AWESOME! Tragically, I can't play it on my Wii U Deluxe...Darn!
