BFarmer1980 commented on Nintendo Reveal Why Its 3D Mario Title Isn't S...:

While I'm extremely disappointed in what I've seen, it's not because I think this is going to be a bad game by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, it looks pretty good.

But, the more full-on 3D world style of the previous console titles has a much bigger and grander feel, and that's really what I'm looking for. While this game looks great from one perspective, it also feels like more of the recent same. It's a bit of a different perspective version of NSMB. As such, a major selling point is the multiplayer aspect--which is fine if you live with a family or roommates, or in a dorm somewhere, and have gamer buddies at the ready. If you don't, that appeal is largely lost, and you're left playing a multi-player title by yourself.

But, even so, I'm still hopeful for a more full-fledged 3D Mario adventure somewhere down the line. and this game does look intriguing. But, that's also the problem. I'm intrigued by the games I saw Nintendo offer today, but I'm not excited enough about any of them to want to buy a Wii U yet. They haven't shown me a console-selling game yet.
