Neither the ad nor the subsequent test during the Nintendo Direct on the showfloor impressed us, leaving us instead the feel of a “minor” episode voted more three-dimensional to the declination in New Super Mario multiplayer formula Bros. that the fulfillment of the desire to single player “the Galaxy” that many fans were trying. Nevertheless, a partial excuse, that the House of Kyoto took its: before choosing to abandon the “feast” of the classic La-based Conference in favor of a more concise and sober Direct, then install demo not able to give the perspective of the real value of Super Mario 3D World. But, looking at the glass half full, it is also true that in this manner we throughly enjoyed the pleasure of discovery, enthusiasm across the total reversal of the convictions that we have grasped the GamePad for the first time, addressing the 1-1 level, without imagining what would have been the beginning of an amazing journey and a lot of fun …
Usually it happens that a game offers a great single player experience coupled with a multiplayer added almost by obligation, or on the contrary you come across products expressly directs you to use with human opponents that include very slight Panel if not depressing story mode nothing short of forgettable. Super Mario 3D World is the perfect mix of both worlds, precisely because they are not treated as separate entities, but rather as essential ingredients of a single batter.
But at the same time, the effort of Tokyo is a product with a quality, quantity and variety of content be left almost speechless, even because they simply represent factors that we are no longer used nowadays to see all together in one game . But Super Mario 3D World is just that: an epitome of ideas able to fit perfectly with each other as in a magnificent puzzle.
The starting point of the project was that Super Mario 3D Land appeared two years ago on Nintendo 3DS, and that in fact it represented a kind of prototype of embryo to a new approach in developing a Mario platformer capable of being halfway-co me stated by the developers themselves-between the 2D and 3D anime series; from there, the concept has virtually exploded, giving rise to what in fact is the first true must-have for Wii U. In Super Mario 3D World you can take control of a character to choose between Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad (plus a fifth to unlock, as you might have read); each of them is highly distinguished in characteristics that affect speed and jump, offering a range of choices that can bring substantial differences in practice. As mentioned earlier, you can choose whether to tackle the adventure alone or with up to four participants; all within the same levels, without having to operate special selections or navigate menus. Everything is there, at your fingertips, which is at most a KeyPress.
