Every review is over an 8? For Nintendo on top form I expect the vast majority of reviews to be well over a 9. Pointless number at the end of the article withstanding. But let's be honest, no matter how great this may be, this isn't SMW.
This is just as good as smw minus the cape to me.
Why does it matter what the number is as long as they enjoyed it? And I think every reviewer as enjoyed it so far............
Whats shocking to me is the high nintendo land praise
You brought up the numbers, Carol. So let's forget the numbers then... do the words/tone in the NSMBU reviews read like the reviews for SMW?
None of us have played it yet, so we don't know. I'm just going off the words in the reviews. SMW is regarded as a classic - this might be a lot of fun, but I don't see it being deserving of that type of lofty praise. I'm not saying it has to be as good, games that aren't as good are still lots of fun, but I personally just don't see it.
