    Cheers, thing is I'm trying to do it with Mario as I've done every other level with him so want that stamp at the end. Just looked at the video and the timings don't actually look that bad.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    “Just looked at the video and the timings don't actually look that bad. “

    Did you mean, the youtube video I posted? The text in the video, should explain the timing, and specific inputs. But it is so difficult to read, because, so much, is going on so fast, that the text, to explain what is happening, needs to change every couple of seconds. It is a mad level. But certainly worth the effort to finish it.

    Side note: my friend's little sister deleted my 100% save file on purpose. And then played coy about it, and of course, her save file was fine and dandy. Since I use my Wii U for demos, I've had to play through it a second time...

    ... And it still puts a smile on my face. :D

    Check out my talk show on YouTube, the Wii U "Five"!

    I've still to do this myself.

    Gave up months ago, used to try it every day for about an hour. Got as far as the crazy speed ramps and choked every time, even with the catsuit.

    This level is truly soul crushing in every sense of the word.

    When you say 'choke', do you mean good strategy with poor execution? Or poor strategy?

    Trying everyday for an hour will get you there in the end. If it is just a strategy issue you are having, check my video at 43secs, 52sec or 74secs and that should show you the easiest strategies for those sections.

    Remember, that Mario only reaches his top speed after he's been running (straight line or in a circle) for a while for the second smoke trail to show when his turbo kicks-in.

    @PirateRoberts That is bloody impressive! I think a lot of it, (once you have the strategy) is having the confidence to implement it.

    @binky

    It is and it isn't - putting to one side the part at 73secs - when you are only hypothesising about a strategy and are then maybe 60secs away from trying an idea again - if you fail - then that is a lot about confidence, but the stuff in the video is all pretty easy once the timing is explained and it is broken down into basic moves. There's not a lot you can get wrong if you use the d-pad at first.

    As said previously, the part at 73secs is probably an exception to that, and even now I'd struggle to do that part 10/10 times (after a practice). What you can do to build confidence is to count when you've did 3 jumps (so you are on the first block of the 4th - different coloured – step).

    At this point, just jump back to the far left side of the previous step(the 3rd step); run half way across the step and jump up to 4th step again. If you then jump back down again and run again, you will eventually get your timing so that you can run the full width of the 3rd step and gain enough speed (and be at the correct timing) to leap on the second block of the 4th step in one jump.

    You would then be faced with the same problem again, when you jump on to the lower block of step 5, but now you are between two steps that are made of two blocks. So you'd just jump back and forth between the top block of step four and the lower block of step five, until the timing was right to run the full width of the top block of the fourth step 4. The confidence comes from staying alive for a longer period on a difficult section, even if you don't feel like you actually got any further when you fail.

    In that part of the video, the most important aspect of the strategy is seeing where the feet of mario lands on each block; typical you want to land nearer the beginning of a block to have more space to run to pickup speed before you jump to the next block.

    Boss Blitz is a pain simply because of the time allocated.  I can get to the last boss but dont have enough time to take him out.

    Its the first time in the whole game where I feel cheated.

    There are strategies for killing each boss pretty quickly, however its a pain to pull off without losing a life.

    Managed to do it. Have still some stars and stamps to collect from flower world though every other world is 100% complete.

    To be honest, Champions Road is for the super dedicated and elite, so not me basically. I could bow out with the following stats and be happy :)

    319 stars
    76 stamps
    428 retries
    Total time played: 25:53
    No. Times Played: 35

    I finally did Boss Blitz after a fair few tries and then missed the top of the flag :confused:

    Just finished this with 191 stars. Started to go back and 3 star all levels, did the first world and then got bored.

    It's good, but not amazing. Certainly a step down from Galaxy, which was itself a step down from Mario 64. Compared to something like the new Raymans it just lacks a spark. (There was nothing that I will talk about to my friends in this, whereas the music levels in Rayman were a great topic of conversation.) It just seems Nintendo make less effort every generation. Torn between 7 or 8/10 really. Probably deserves an 8 I suppose as it is really polished.

    I quite liked the cherry worlds, and some of the boss fights, but I hated the "ride the crappy thing" levels.

    Is it worth playing on at all? Are there any secret levels or bonuses for reaching 200 stars? It just seems very short, only took 2 sessions really to complete. It was also extremely easy, with only one level that I can think of actually giving me any trouble. (Side scrolling chase the train, which I kept dying while trying for green stars.)

    Edit: Oh, I did love the levels which were just puzzles of grabbing green stars. Some of those were fantastc.

    @RyanDS Make each level your bitch before moving on, its so much more enjoyable that way.

    3 stars, stamp and top of the flag.  25 hours in and still havent finished the damn thing.  Having seen the final level, I probably never will.

    Thinking I might get this for my son for Christmas. I know nothing about it, but I know I loved SMS on GC and SMG on Wii.
    Is there co-op? Can one of us play via Wiimote / Classic Controller?

    I'm tempted by it too having just bought a Wii U, and rate SMG2 as one of the very best games ever made.

    I'm stunned at how Nintendo's games keep their prices though. I really can't afford another full price purchase. See also Wind Waker HD, an up-rezzing of a near decade old game that has been out for ages, for which £35 is considered the cheaper option o_0

    IMO it's as good as SMG2, don't hesitate for a second.

    I wouldn't say it's as good as SMG2 (which is pretty much the greatest 3d platformer ever made). It's bloody close though and probably the best game on the Wii U (haven't started Bayo 2 yet).

    It's without hesitation my favourite 3D Mario game of them all, if that helps.

    You rating SMG2 as one of the best games ever made and owning a Wii U but only being tempted by SM3DW has short circuited my brain a little bit :)

    That being said I skipped SMG2 because I thought SMG1 was kind of overrated. Is there a vast difference?

    21 consoles, 5 handhelds, 2 PCs, 1 Mac and about 700 games from the past 30 years. Every major manufacturer and developer represented. Still a fanboy for disagreeing with you.

    @Psiloc Like I said, it's a money situation. I was hoping it had dropped in price by now. That, plus I'm a new Wii U owner who has a back catalogue of other brilliant Wii U games to browse through.

    As for SMG2. It essentially the same deal as SMG1, but better designed levels, more fan service, and with more imagination poured into the same core concepts introduced in the first. It's just better in every way. More fun and more challenging.

    Fair enough, but it should be the next game you drop money on. No question.

    Might have to give SMG2 a try, I like the idea of the first one more than I liked playing it I think so a more refined version might sit well.
