Super Mario 3D World


The most prominent issue the majority of naysayers have voiced with the recent entries in the Super Mario series has been their general sameiness and lack of imagination, but while Super Mario 3D World definitely doesn’t stray too far from its nostalgic roots it does manage to throw in just enough variety to be sufficiently different from its peers. Most of this comes from the greater shift in focus towards competition between players, emphasizing the ongoing score chase in a manner very similar to Four Swords Adventures two generations ago. 3D World leans on this aspect a bit too heavily, though, as just with Four Swords Adventures attempts to play alone only highlight just how much everything in the game was designed with multiple players in mind. This is a game that flourishes as a multiplayer sport and flounders in solo play, so whether or not it deserves a spot on your shelf depends on how many willing participants you have available.
