    I don't think the PSP had a better battery life, and both Ocarina and this are better looking than anything I've seen on the PSP.

    I definitely got at least 4 hours on average on the PSP, lucky to get two and a bit on the 3DS. You're right about this and OoT so i will take the graphics comment back. But to add to it the psp read from a disk and still lasted longer (... Assume that is a bigger drain)

    @Kay - Hopefully the inevitable 3DS with dual analogue will have a higher capacity battery like they managed to do for the PSP, they did a double power battery at one point.

    Is this as good as it looks?
    I don't really want to spend 200 to get a 3DS this and MK, but I may have to...

    I was somewhat surprised last week when I went to plug in my DS Lite to charge it and discovered I hadn't unplugged the charger to charge my 3DS in the time since my last DS Lite charge. Although I suppose that says more about how little I use my 3DS than how much I use my DS Lite. That said, I don't own this game yet - am strictly waiting for MK 3DS.

    So, for all the carping about battery life I've read here (my own included, I guess) has anyone invested in the many extended battery packs available? I was temped by one of the combined grips and batteries, but it seems that for now they're US only.

    Just you wait until special stage World 7... one or two courses may test your patience a little bit, like me!

    The satisfaction when you finally jump onto the flag-pole is great though.

    I think this is my Game of the Year to be honest.

    The special stages are awesome.

    Clone Marios, the SMB3 statue suit, bullet bills with racoon tails, skeletal Bowser... and that's just in the first world.

    How is this with the 3D off?
  • Deleted user 22 November 2011 11:08:37
    fine imo, it looks fantastic; bright and colourful.

    Fine is probably the right word, in the way that there's nothing really wrong with it, but if you play it without 3D you are massively missing out.

    I quite like the way the 3D effect is used in Mario and I think it's quite understated. It definitely makes a difference but it's just quite subtle and never too OTT.

    I found I hardly ever used it in Zelda but I have it on constantly in Mario.

    I've reached world 3-4 now and I'm taking it really slowly. I just don't want the game to end!! The levels may be fairly short but they're just so much fun! Absolutely brilliant game so far!

    I'm very anti 3D in general but this game is all the better for it I think. Only game I have it on constantly, all other games I have it off. Wonderful stuff :)

    Quite a coincidence that this reviewer has managed to sum up exactly how I feel about the game.

    @kay, wish i hadn't read that... I've been picking my way (and loving every minute) through this very gently thinking that it would all end after world 8. Now I'll probably hammer through a bit harder.

    On no it was quite a surprise for me. A very nice one i might add.
  • Deleted user 23 November 2011 22:37:28
    This game is harder than some people seem to suggest. At least for me anyways. I burnt through 48 lives before completing world 8, though I did collect every star coin and hit the top of every flag pole. Some great level design though and its been fun throughout.

    The lwvel design are great and so much fun. I've not found them difficult untill special stages then i'm struggling a little getting all coins and not dying lots. Good fun though

    Got my very first game over in one of the special world levels - the music beat platform level. To be honest there are very few tricky levels even on the special worlds (currently on world 6).

    I think I'm getting a little burnt out on the game though, might give it a bit of a break before tackling the last three worlds.

    Just when I thought I'd exhausted the content, they went a surprised me with a bunch more. Nintendo are a class act when they want to be. :)

    This will sound slightly stalker-esque but I have been street passing a Eurogamer staff member on my train to Brighton. It's good to see the competitive times for completing levels!

    My best on level 1-1 is 48 seconds

    Yes finally i three coined all the regular levels. Took me ages to find World 5-2 coin 1. So obvious now i look back. Now for the specials. Loving the game sunk about 14 hours into it so far
  • Deleted user 27 November 2011 12:25:56
    Yep, i'm avoiding the tanooki also, trying to 3 coin each stage with vanilla mario, that's just how I roll.

    Tbh, i got a game over on the world 5 bowser stage.

    World 8 special is giving me a bit of trouble. First time really in the game but to be honest i've like the fact it's been easy but do wish they's done missions like in M64.
  • Deleted user 27 November 2011 21:03:34
    Just started playing this. Holy shit is it good.

    No one does it like Nintendo and this is a prime example. It's just goddamn spectacular and an excellent display of what the 3DS can do.

    This is much much better than I anticipated. 3d is really spot on and controls are great, 3d doesn't give you any headache control-wise.

    Levels are really varied, but perhaps I would have liked to see more those open exploration style levels.

    I would definitely pay for DLC levels for this.

    Just starting world 7- have got all coins so far, but the last couple of end levels have been quite tough!

    The level of creativity on show is awesome, new concepts with each level etc. I particularly liked collecting each of a line of music notes in order, and realising that it played the Super Mario World (or Smb3, one of them anyway) 1-1 theme.

    This is probably the first game where having the 3D on is a benefit to the gameplay. That sense of depth can make even the toughest platforming section much more achievable.

    Although those white-on-white cloud levels in the sky can fuck off, as without shadows it's like playing an Escher painting. :)

    Loving this. I'm only six worlds in, but I'm making sure to three-star everything as I go through.
