    So, has anyone played it yet? I just picked it up during my lunch break, and I can't wait to try it.

    Both of you guys need to post what you think about it after a couple days... I'm trying to stop myself from getting this until I finish the game I am playing now... :)

    I've only played multiplayer vs. a friend so far. It's pretty fun, though I don't see it being fun forever - it seems like you could only fireball the other guy and steal their stars so many times before it gets old. It certainly can have its moments though. It was pretty hilarous having the micro mushroom and being chased down by my friend who had the mega mushroom, who was tearing up the landscape trying to get me (and somehow I lived! :D ).

    But hey, I didn't buy the game for the multiplayer mode. I'm really looking forward to trying out the single player.

    I've played through 2 worlds. Seems like Mario Bros. classic goodness. I need to play some more before I make a judgement.

    Monday, I was at a local Wal-Mart during my lunch break for work (that's how I roll) and I saw the Wally World employee shelving the game. Needless to say I stood there staring at it for a good 2 minutes wishing I had a DS Lite.

    I'll probably pick it up if I'm able to afford a DS Lite once they come out in the US. I'm really excited about this game since it kind of brings me back to my gaming roots. I'm not all about playing generic FPS #49028 nowadays.

    I haven't even finished the first world yet, but it's pretty cool. I LOVE the wall jump. As far as saves go, it's similar to Super Mario World (my personal favorite) with saves after major levels/castles.

    1st player is fun. Classic Mario with a few new moves: Wall jump / slide, ground pound, etc. It takes me back. I especially like how at the end of the level you jump to catch a flag and then slide down it, and there are fireworks depending on the time when you hit the flag, just like on Mario for the NES.

    One thing that's taking me a little bit to get use to is when you start moving, there's a little bit where you are slow, like a normal person trying to run - it takes you a sec. Not overbearing, just noticeable. It feels like he has some drag.

    The game is fabulous. On world 1, there are 2 'castles' and you can save it after you beat each one. There are multiple paths you can take throughout the worlds (top or bottom). This game is great. It's just another one of those reminders of why I love Nintendo. It's just fun and enjoyable, smashing goombas and looking for pipes to go down. Definately buy this game. Now for the Wii...

    Yea I know what you mean, he has a longer start up. It's not like SMW, but you adjust quickly, reminds me a lot of the first SMB.

    This is the most pure fun I've had playing a video game in a while.

    You've been missed Mario!

    Yeah, it's pretty cool. Just did the first "waterworld", the sharks were cool. Fish and sharks doing torpedo spins was neat. As far as movement, I have noticed that there is some acceleration involved. It did kinda throw me off for about a minute, but then you get used to it. That said, I really like the new powerups. The mini-mushroom is cool, being able to float and fly skyhigh.

    NO JOKE.

    At least we know it's just a supply issue, and making enough units to meet what is certainly going to be a heavy launch demand. These things are still flying off the shelves in Japan & it's still $200 to import them!

    What I like about the mini mushroom is that you can run on top of the water!
