Indeed, been playing this more than Mario. If only the battery life wasn't so crap, barely makes a day's commute thanks to NXEA's Christmas service.

Can't seem to work up the enthusiasm to buy at full price.

Maybe it's because I didn't really get in to Mario Galaxy?
I did enjoy New Super Mario Bros though.


Not quite, just the last couple of the special worlds to go, I've been taking it slowly (just playing a couple of levels each day) and getting all 3 of the special coins on each stage, I think it's a lovely game so it's a keeper (I know that does'nt help you), but I honestly think it's worth paying full price for. Plus these kind of Mario games tend to hold their value if you decide to pass it on at some point in the near future. It's very similar in feel to NSMB which IMO is a good thing I've enjoyed it much more that I did Galaxy 1 & 2 which I also did'nt get into as much as I have done with previous Mario games.

Mario is actually excellent. The special worlds were a nice suprise, I was expecting 10 levels tops.

I'm in the same boat as Paulie, playing 2-3 levels a day & grabbing all 3 coins as I go. I'm up to S2

Well worth picking up mate, I've only got the last 2 Special worlds left tho :( I really don't want it to end, so I keep putting off playing it, which I must admit sounds a bit bonkers.

I picked one up and it's great, completed the main game and now working through the raid missions. Excellent game, first one that I've played to completion in a while .

I bought screen protectors because it was leaving marks. Now that's sorted... what about the obligatory DS cracked hinge problem!? Yes it's happened on my 3DS! (currently waiting for a replacement.)

Had some CEX credit thats been sitting in my wallet for an age so spent it on Mario Kart 7 and Pac-Man &Galaga Dimentions today.

MK7 is great but not tried PM & GD yet, but it looks pretty good I know the reviws were not so great for this one but I think the main gripe was the pricing so hopefully should be good fun.

It doesn't hold very well for me either, but to be honest it's better turned off anyway.

I finally cracked and bought one, well the Mrs is paying for it for my b'day.

She was going to surprise me with a new one but I told her I had seen a second hand one for sale which I wanted to get and it kinda ruined her plan :awe:

I'm getting one with Mario Land, Mario Kart, Zelda and Ridge Racer. TBH I only really want it for Mario Land but I thought I would get a couple of other titles too.
