Heck, I spent 1 hour on first level alone (which had a clever boss, might I add!)
Dont list to the person below who said it's not worth $5. I think it's worth $10, and, I hope the expand and offer us more great levels. If they do, Im buying!… Expand
Average User Score: 6.2Dec 17, 2016Fantastic, fun, frantic, new way to play Mario. I have played them all but never one like this.
People who say the game is only an hourFantastic, fun, frantic, new way to play Mario. I have played them all but never one like this.
People who say the game is only an hour long (because they completed world 6-4) are lying. The game is about collected the hard to get coins. Get those and you open more levels.
Additionally, Toad Rally will last dozens of hours. It's innovative, a great way of playing head to head Mario and uses a scoring system that I feel will change head to head gaming for Mario for years to come.
Best $10 every spent at Itunes. Steal this and stop listening to the whiners who expect everything free in life.… Expand

Though thisI have played every Paper Mario game ever. And they are all fantastic, creative, original experiences (yes, even Sticker Star)
Though this one is, without a doubt, is the most beautiful, both visually and audibly (the music is unreal) Paper Mario game ever. It's a game you never want to stop playing because you are anxious to see what happens next. I have never laughed out loud as much as I have in ANY video game. The writing is pure genius. The battle system is not perfect, but, it's fine and it adds up to something special.
Do not listen to the salty haters out there who didn't get the THOUSAND YEAR DOOR sequel they wanted. Nintendo gives us this gift, a fresh take on the series, with less RPG and more action, adventure and story than ever. And at over 40 hours long, it's a great value.
I advise you to 100% this game. And you will be rewarded.
I would give the game a 15 out of 10 if I could!… Expand
Average User Score: 5.3Aug 22, 2016Wow. The hate for this is so annoying. Just because you didn't get the Metroid game YOU wanted, stop abusing the score by spiking it with aWow. The hate for this is so annoying. Just because you didn't get the Metroid game YOU wanted, stop abusing the score by spiking it with a ZERO score, just because you didn't get your way (just like an entitled whiney toddler)
This game, from the creators of the great LUIGI'S MANSION 2, is fantastic. It is everything you want in a Metroid game (yes, even Samus is in it. In cuts scenes, AND, you can play as Samus if you scan her Amiibo into the system - which you greatly benefit from, as she will give you 10 missiles vs the standard 3!). It has exploration, architectural puzzles, backtracking, and, some damn fine combat.
Is the game hard? Hell yes it is. It's Demon Souls hard at times. However, as you play a level again and again (and having fun doing so), you truly do get better, especially as you gain mods and expansions that help your character get stronger.
Single player is worth the price alone. Mission 13, 14, WOW. Though the online is a game in itself, and, if you feel the heat in a certain level (14 talking to u!), go online, and beat the hell out of those wretched bosses!). THEN, you get Blast Ball! Think soccer with guns! Thats a $10 game in itself.
Folks, trust me on this: this is a polished, beautifully made, deep deep big game that will give you well over 25 hours of play. Lots of objectives, medal, strong replay value. The controls take a little getting used to, however, once you learn them, you get even better (yes, in sense, this game would have benefited from console/bigger controllers, though, I feel, a big console Metroid is coming to NX in 2017, so, Nintendo gave us something a little different, like Tri Force Heroes last year, to tide over until the big console game comes out)
IGNORE THE HATERS. People scoring this a ZERO simply have not played the game. I mean, if the game is not your cup of tea, fine. Though to score a game a ZERO with such love, polish, great gameplay, as Meroid Federation Force, shows ANGER, HATE, not an honest score.
I felt compelled to post this review because of the utter shock and dismay of the hate and lies being spread on this game. If you like great gaming, give this a try.… Expand

Average User Score: 7.5Apr 23, 2016Great game all I have to say, a big BOOYAH to SFZ!
Yes, the controls are a bit different at first. But, thats what I love and trust aboutGreat game all I have to say, a big BOOYAH to SFZ!
Yes, the controls are a bit different at first. But, thats what I love and trust about Miyamoto, who is a game innovator who takes risks, with unique control schemes on the highly rated Skyward Sword, Pikmin 3.
What he does with SFZ is takes a chance, to make the game more innovative and challenging to the typical "Yawn Fest" twin stick shooting scheme, where he has the balls to be different, and, in the end, take a chance and scores big.
Once you "get" the controls, you will smile at the pure genius of it. Then realize, the strong hate and prejudice by"gaming journalists" from Forbes and Polygon, who are being whiney because they didnt get their way with hand-held twin stick controls they find easy to play. Shame shame shame on media like that not even giving the game a chance.
SFZ is a wonderful gaming experience that I am having so much damn fun with. Easily worth the price, especially when it's packed with Star Fox Guard that has at least a $20 value to it (gaming wise)… Expand

TakingFantastic deeper than I thought game that captures the charm and magic of Animal Crossing while presenting hours and hours of fun. Taking away around $30 for the amiibo, the game drops to $30, which is well it!

Looking forReally stunned at some of the reviews for this game. It's a different type of platformer. It's more about challenge and discovery. Looking for everything is great fun. The game is polished, entertaining, the Amiibo is a must, wonderful. I have put in well over 20 hours of play to beat the base game, much more if you 100%, which is fun to do.
The gameplay has a nice build to it, with new items slowly being rolled out to you. Love how new ideas and elements present to you.
My feeling is the destiny wheel turned off many critics. Which is silly as, it's not horrible, not great, but in the end, does nothing to impede the game. So easy to land on the number you need.
Also, Chibi-Robo has always been polarizing. Critics want basic, paint by numbers. Not into edgy, different.
Also, do NOT get the complaints on the vehicle levels. The cart, balloon, etc are all fun. Once you understand the controls, it makes great sense. Are they challenging? Sure. That's what I want in a game, a challenge. Not paint by number hand holding.
The costume element of this game is great. In where you find codes within the game then share these codes with others on Miiverse, gamefaqs, etc. And, the 100%ing of this game is something I am truly going to shoot for. It's very addictive and fun. Getting all the costumes is something I feel will be quite rewarding to do.
This is a game that is TRULY about exploration first, then platforming. And, the exploration is challenging and clever at times. If you are the nook and cranny sort of exploration person, who loves to find everything and smiles when discovering new items, this game is so much for you.
The presentation is fantastic. Great menu, great Chibi Universe, many configurations of things to do, and, the Amiibo is greatly used in this. Heck, even other "non" Chibi Amiibo are well used in this!
The sound effects are strong, the music light and catchy. Nothing special but serviceable enough to where you smile.
If you love the Chibi-Robo Universe, and are looking for something different in game-play, get this now. Honestly, very surprised at some of the low scores on this game. They are not deserved and no doubt, if you try to collect everything, you will get at least 40 hours out of this wonderful, fun, inspiring, colorful game.
