I just finished this game today. I started it months ago, much later than everyone else under the sun, and had a nice chunk of time over the past couple days to finish it.

Overall, I'd have to say I'm disappointed. I was level 16 when I finished-- I had no real problems with it except for a few *major* frustrating sections. In 8-4, if I hadn't been in the last level I would have turned it off and never finished it. After the credits roll, you can go back and do some sidequests. I checked into them online to see whether I wanted to bother and found that some of them aren't recommended unless you are level 40.

And there's the part that I hate. This game is a platformer. Sure, it's also an RPG, but the idea of grinding in a platformer because my stats aren't high enough seems foreign.

So yes, I had some fun, and I would recommend it to anyone, but there were so many missed opportunities.

I have this on the Wii and I thought it started well but then got fairly boring. I did like some of the power ups, like when Mario is huge he is all 8bit and destroys everything. It dared not have Bowser as a bad guy but they didn't seem to bother making non-bowser interesting.

The graphics were interesting and I liked the 2d/3d switching around a lot!

Yeah, I'm with you. The first half of the game was amazing, but it's like they ran out of ideas and the ideas that were fun and interesting in the beginning were a bit tired later in the game.
