This game is very fun for most Mario Fans, and is considered a very good game. The Dual Mode is a very good addition too. However, there are also absences like shops. There's also no new items, but the pre-installed Power-Up is quite unique. Many challenging levels and bosses make this game not recommended for beginners, but it is ideal for those who want to take ant challenges. The Easter Eggs are also funny, and some of them are nostalgic too. It's overall rating is 4/5.
