    Finally, a Mario game taking after SMW. Super Mario World was a fantastic game, it will be nice to get another game like it.

    The list I'd REALLY like to see one day: "8 ways the New Mario game is totally fresh and new".

    2D Platforming Mario is supposed to keep the same familiar formula but keep refreshing it so we keep enjoying it. All the real new changes are for 3D platforming Mario, which Mario never disappoints in, even Galaxy 2

    But then people will hate because it "doesn't feel" like a Mario game

    The levels being larger is good to hear. But perhaps more importantly, how many are there? The game will stick to the usual 8 world formula of course, but how many levels per world will we be seeing this time? This is a console game, not a handheld one, it needs much more than NSMB2 had. And less importantly, do we know if there will be leaderboards for the speedruns? I couldn't care less personally, but leaderboards seem to be popular these days.

    NSMB2's problem is that the stages themselves were short and easy as your goal was to find coins, this game's levels are longer as they just said and the game has it's share of big replay value that sadly Super Mario 3D land didn't. Considering the challenge packs on NSMB2's DLC is specifically for leaderboarding, who knows, we get something of the sort.

    I thought Super Mario 3D Land's replay value was pretty good considering once you completed the game, it opened up every single level again with a new goal or limitation. I hadn't read reviews, so that genuinely surprised me. I agree with NSMB2's levels being too short and easy, although I still have a fair few of the star coins to collect. I was annoyed with it's lack of a secret world 9, and some of the worlds had too few stages I thought. I just always want more levels basically. They could have 500 and I'd still want more.

    NSMB2 basically had the Star world as its world 9. Super Mario 3D Land indeed did have good content especially with opening another 8 worlds the more hardcore players. Its just after beating it all, we crave more, and its with all Mario games really but it just makes you wonder what Super Mario 3D Land wouldve been if they didnt rush it.
