Who doesn't love Mario? This game takes him to a new level of fun. Mario is supposed to be on vacation and some guy that looks like him starts to pollute the island. So now you have to go and clean up his mess! Along the way you collect shine sprites, blue coins, and red coins. Once you get 10 blue coins you can turn them in for 1 shine sprite. Also there are tunnels under the first level, there are coins, blue coins, and free guys down there...search well. I went out and bought a game guide and it has helped me a lot. Have fun and go rent this game, I'll bet you end up buying it.
I know this game has been out for a while now but I really enjoyed it and I thought I would review it. The gameplay is very good as allways in a mario game. You've got your jumping and your kicking and sliding plus water pumping action with FLUDD. The story is pretty much like all the other Mario games, Peach gets kidnapped and you have to save her. Although there is more to it than that, like getting the shines for the piantas and Mario being framed for vandalism so it's fairly interesting. The graphics on this game are excellent, some of the best I'v ever seen. When I got this game I was raving about the realistic water for weeks afterwards. All in all this game is alot of to Mario fans and to newcomers alike. It's an easy game to get good at yet it offers a challenge for those who want to get all 120 shines.
