Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

It feels a lot like classic Mario gameplay, but there's a bit more frustration factor than there should be.

Graphics:

Okay - the graphics are stunning, early on. In later levels, it feels like someone was deliberately just being cheap.

Sound and Music:

Nintendo traditionally doesn't bother voice-acting most of their titles, but the music's great, and the sound effects are wonderful.

Difficulty:

Is it difficult? Not really. Beyond a few annoying puzzles, most of the game is classing run-and-stomp gameplay.

Controls and Interface:

The controls are beautifully done; getting into any menu pauses the game. The only thing slightly annoying is switching the remote forward for the identification Pixl.

Overall:

Mario and classic Nintendo fans will find plenty of references in the game to enjoy; newcomers and young kids will probably appreciate the game, if not to the same extent.
