2) Necessary items given in the wrong time, so is pretty useless
3) Music is boring
4) Bonuses are useless
I thought my new console is faulty, or the remote, hmmm, no, the game is pretty problematic to me!
I am back to DK Tropical Freeze, finished it twice, and successfully playing now Rayman, so I am not at fault, this game software is problematic!
It's been on all weekend in my house and we're having great fun with it. I never owned a Wii U so for me and my family it's a whole new experience that we're really enjoying.
I also appreciate the fact that there is a very easy mode- so my 4 year old can play this game without being killed by the enemies- ie- Goombas and Racoons and everything else- and he can enjoy it without getting too stressed out that he's being killed every few minutes. As it's not a 3D world like Odyssey he cant just run around the enemies- so the extra easy does really help.
Although on extra easy you don't get the ability to glide like the other characters so getting the giant coins is damn near impossible if they are high up or hidden.
I've not gotten very far in it- as every time i sit down with it my 4 year old wants a turn- so hopefully pretty soon I'll be able to have a long play without interuptions.
Although it's a port of an old Wii U game- graphics are crystal clear and the game suffers no lags- it's pretty much flawless!
As I refused to purchase a Wii-U I never got to play this version which is why I am glad they ported it to the switch for this reason. It’s worth pointing out that with the deluxe game you also get New Super Luigi U which is a much harder and challenging version of the Mario story line which mixes up the maps with more enemies and harder platforming along with the fact that Luigi handles like melted chocolate. Also you unlock a challenge mode consisting of time attacks, coin collection, 1-up rally and some special levels which all provide the player with hard challenges to complete.
The Mario game isn’t too difficult, there are sections that will test you however I managed to get my lives up to 99 pretty quickly and remain with that amount. The later Superstar Road is where the levels really step up in difficulty especially when trying to claim all 3 Star Coins. Speaking of star coins these can be a challenge to find in some levels especially the ghost mansions which have multiple exits. Not only this but there are secret levels to find which also can be difficult to locate and I wouldn’t have looked if it wasn’t for accidentally finding one and being shown the level in the menu system.
Some issues I do have with the game come down to Nintendo tropes, I don’t understand why they kept the U in the title and added deluxe, I know it’s a Wii-U port but in honestly who wants to remember where it came from. Nintendo have a habit of explaining things to you constantly, other games will tell you something and then leave you too it but in this game every mushroom you visit you will still have to wait for instructions on how to play and then wait at the end while it tells you, you will be getting an item. This is not only subject to the mushrooms but when you die in a level you are booted out and have to re-enter which all takes time. Why the couldn’t have a try again screen is beyond me!
The game itself took around 10 hours to complete and then a further 5-6 finding all the exits and star coins. I couldn’t stop playing it which is obviously a good sign, its what you come to expect from a Mario 2D platformer. Having said that the levels can be pretty samey, it doesn’t mix things up like Odyssey or the 3D Mario games which are head and shoulders better than this but that nostalgia and speed runs make this a fun to play game.
Before I finish up I found the multiplayer pretty fun to play although it becomes frustrating really quickly (depending on who you play with) the camera follows the lead player so it’s easy to drop off the screen if you lag behind. You can get that sense of working as a team with the right players but it’s very easy to just go forward and make it difficult for everyone else. In multiplayer the bosses become really easy so if you do struggle on your own, great a trustworthy team.
Personally though I prefer to play solo.
