Average User Score: 8.4Nov 21, 2011This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Fun game! Even if you play this single player, it is a worthy entry in the Mario series.
The bulk of the fun comes from multiplayer. While it can be frustrating at times, especially with newer players, the fun factor increases as people become more comfortable with the game. In a nutshell, it's a traditional 2D Mario game with multiplayer but you don't have to take turns. It's a fantastic experience.
So why not a 10? The difficulty. I don't mind difficult games. I have fun with easy games as well. The problem with this Mario game is the first 8 worlds are relatively on the easy side. The difficulty goes up progressively as you move from world to world but it is still manageable. The problem I have is when you successfully collect all of the star coins from Worlds 1-8. After you accomplish this, a special World 9 opens. The difficulty in World 9 almost gets to the point of not wanting to finish the game. It can get extremely frustrating. Again, I don't mind difficulty in games but I was completely unprepared for World 9. If you want to finish the game (and I did), be prepared to be patient and be almost perfect to complete this World.
Other than this one minor gripe, I recommend this game for everyone!… Expand

It does not equal the excellence of Goldeneye of N64 but on its own merit, it is still a very good game. Great controls, good single player, and a surprisingly fun multiplayer mode that has a COD like unlocking system (the more levels you gain, the more weapons, etc. that unlock). The only downsides are the graphics, which are a bit subpar even for a Wii game, and the lack of voice options in multiplayer (although I don't miss it too much because the voice chat on other systems can be annoying and downright obnoxious).
If you're looking for a good shooter for the Wii, look no further. After being out for one year, I still pick this game up and play. And at $20 at most places now, this game is an absolute must for fans of first person shooters.… Expand

Been playing it since this morning. Great controls, story, graphics, etc. In my opinion, it may not turn out to be as great as Link to the Past or Ocarina of Time but from my initial time with SS, it deserves its place alongside the other Zelda games. As always, Nintendo doesn't fail to give their fans a fantastic experience. Great game for gamers of ANY age!… Expand
