Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis review

Donkey Kong is up to his old tricks again, but Mario's not toying around in their latest battle on the DS


  • Feels like a classic Donkey Kong title
  • Puzzles offer a satisfying challenge
  • A virtual buffet of levels to play via Wi-Fi


  • Not the usual Mario action
  • Can blow through game in a few hours
  • Using only the stylus becomes tiresome

Still fighting over girls after all these years, Mario and Donkey Kong reignite their old feud once again in Mario vs Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis. The story begins with the opening of Mario%26rsquo;s new theme park, inspired by a series of toys Mario has created, which include wind-up versions of himself, Donkey Kong, and other familiar characters. The lovely Pauline (of earlier Donkey Kong fame) is the ceremony%26rsquo;s guest of honor. When Pauline chooses the Mario toy over the DK toy, gazing longingly at the little wind-up plumber, Kong%26rsquo;s old jealousy takes over. He swiftly snatches away Pauline, daring Mario to come after him.

DescriptionBoss around a group of wind-up, mini-Marios so they don't accidentally kill themselves. Kind of a hands-off puzzler, but could still offer up some decent headaches.
