    Just got it and played the first 6 or 7 levels on Single Player. Here's what I think of it:

    • Two new powerups are very cool and fun. Innovative way to use the Wiimote
    • The 2D / 3D mixup is very nice to look at
    • It's like the DS game but improved. Levels are similar but made Wii specific
    • Love the idea of coop (up to 4 players) however... No online play... which sucks a bit. It IS do-able but Nintendo have just been lazy?
    • Speaking of Nintendo being lazy, the 4 characters you play as are Mario, Luigi, and 2 unknown, unnamed, identical-except-for-colour Toads... nice imagination.

    I wish they didn't change the graphics. I hate the "3-D" look of Mario. I mean, if they were going to do it, at LEAST make it look better. Mario in Super Smash Brothers Wii (Brawl?) looked awesome. I really think you're right about Nintendo being lazy on this game.

    They're selling it for £40 and there's hardly any extra effort in it. Just because it's Mario and the "first new Mario platform for Wii"... people will buy it.

    The game IS fun. Just feels... Lazily developed. Though those 'Hint' videos are amazing. I think they spent more time doing those than making the game haha.

    Also, I wish there were more powerups. Maybe bring SMB3 powerups into the mix. Those were the best.

    ALSO ALSO, Allow for a level editor! Some people can make REALLY awesome Mario levels!

    Yeahh! On the DSi they have a Mario Minis March download where people can make their own levels for the game, and some are incredibly creative.

    We're all thinking the same thing... Online integration was needed. Whether it was high scores for each level, a level creator, online play with Wii friends, online battles with anyone from the world...

    But it gives me an incentive to invite 3 friends over for Xmas. They can bring their own Wiimotes and we can let the nerd-fest begin!

    Physical. Though for its size, it should be DDL.
