Looks and sounds like a 99% port of the DS... which was a great game but come on, we need more incentive than that.

I love this on the DS, but it's looking far too similar, I hate to pick on the graphics, but I was really expecting more from this. The city part of the game does look really great, but why didn't the whole game take place there, instead of the same little village? Living in an apartment in the city would have been a much better basis.

Almost all of the content seems to be recycled from the DS/Gamecube versions as well. Same furniture, same clothes, same fish, fossils, etc.. I only recently completed my museum collection in the DS one, I don't really feel like doing exactly the same thing all over again.

The most positive thing I can say, is that I'm really happy that they've brought back the proper holidays. The weekend events in the DS version were dire, it's great to see things like Halloween, Easter and Christmas back. If nothing else, it at least gives some incentive to play during those periods, unlike with "La-di-day".

I'm with you, Winter. With as good as SMG looked, they seriously couldn't make it look ANY better than it did on the Gamecube? Nintendo is really settling into a "We don't need quality when we are making money hand over foot" funk.

    GriftGFX Now if you grew up on exploration/collect-a-thon platformers you probably have a hard preference for the other thing. (34 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: 2D Mario > 3D Mario. And 3D World feels like 2D Mario. That makes it feel more like a "real Mario game" to me. (34 minutes ago)

    Megido @Tinks: I like all the old 2D marios, and 3D world was great too. It's jsut the Mario 64 and similar ones that i don't like. The collect em up style fo gameplay is boring as shit to me :/ (1 Hour ago)
