Its something that Nintendo will just have to take on the chin. They are always going to be called out on the re-hash thing. It would help if they released more New IP on a regular basis, but at the same time, i feel some people judge quickly on trailers without really looking at them. |
Aside from all the new items, enemies, power ups, etc (i don't really count that has new stuff really - although they do dramitically change the way the game is played), Super Mario 3D world, as a 3d camera (which i never noticed till today), and the first 3d mario to have 4 player MP, which for any game in a series, is a pretty big upgrade. Which in turns gives the game a different feel - the main level shown in the demos, is quite big, a good size bigger than the 3DLAND, levels. Whether that is going to be a good thing, or not as 3dland levels are percise, and good lengths, i don't know.
It does feel like a proper good sequel to a great game rather than a rehash. I understand people wanting a big 3d mario, pushing graphics etc but, i seriously think 3DWorld looks like a hell of a lot of fun, a nice balance between the 2d and 3d games.
