Mario conquered the world of 3D with Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, but Nintendo clearly thought better of leaving the 2D realm behind.
This commercially successful Wii offering may have used 3D graphics, but the gameplay was very much old-school, calling to mind the classic 8- and 16-bit adventures of yesteryear.
Freshly repackaged for the Wii U, it’s striking how engaging and addictive this title is, even by today’s standards. Subsequent 3DS and Wii U sequels have provided entertainment in spades, but haven’t quite captured the same magic.
