    Even though it misses a few chances to do more, Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure is still the best version of this classic puzzler so far. [Issue #16 – July/August 2015, p.21]

    Featuring three different game modes from throughout the franchise's history, as well as preset scenarios to clear and online multiplayer, this is easily the most packed Dr. Mario game yet.

    The new Miracle Cures add welcome new flourishes to the classic puzzle gameplay, and the sheer wealth of content on offer makes this a bargain. Even once you've ignored the awful Luigi bits.

    It's still a good puzzle game, good for nostalgic players.

    Fun puzzler, until you run out of new things to do and feel the drain of the repetition.

    Another installment for the Dr. Mario franchise that doesn´t represent a step forward for the series, but nevertheless it´s a right puzzle game.

    There’s nothing wrong with modernising older games. However, therein lies the problem for Miracle Cure: it’s just a modernisation.

    I think there's a missed opportunity here: Nintendo could have called this "Dr. Mario Bros." since it includes most modes from the Wii U titleI think there's a missed opportunity here: Nintendo could have called this "Dr. Mario Bros." since it includes most modes from the Wii U title Dr. Luigi alongside traditional Dr. Mario gameplay. Nonetheless, this is a solid entry in the Dr. Mario series, and one of the best puzzle games available for Nintendo 3DS. Expand

    I like this game. Since it's for 3ds you can play it anywhere which is nice for times when you're away from home with nothing to do. TheI like this game. Since it's for 3ds you can play it anywhere which is nice for times when you're away from home with nothing to do. The gameplay is the same as the previous games but with miracle cures added. It's only about 7 dollars and I would definitely say it was worth it. Expand

    Despite the inclusion of Dr. Luigi, this quick game literally does nothing to add to the tried and true formula of thr Dr. Mario franchise weDespite the inclusion of Dr. Luigi, this quick game literally does nothing to add to the tried and true formula of thr Dr. Mario franchise we have come to know and love. Challenges are split up into bite-sized pieces and levels you keep track up by charts, and they get more difficult as you go along - predictably. It's nothing new, but it's still pretty fun. And that's never a bad thing. Expand

    I wanted more . Not best tetris which the I have seen because Dr. Robotnik Mean Bean Machine, Tetris for ios/android, Tetris Blitz and otherI wanted more . Not best tetris which the I have seen because Dr. Robotnik Mean Bean Machine, Tetris for ios/android, Tetris Blitz and other tetris game is better than Dr.Mario Miracle Cure and I think this game isn't best game in Dr.Mario Series . Graphics is normal and awesome idea but not very good implementation . This is not really good game, but not **** . Expand
