    Requires a subscription to play

    This game requires an online subscription to access others’ levels, which is the main attraction of this game. Without that, You cannot enter “Course World” and you’re stuck playing only levels of your own creation (or a cheesy story mode.)The unspoken pact between gamers and game developers is — you can either charge upfront for the game, or charge for subscription access. You can’t do both. This game does both.Some may argue, it’s only $20/year, stop complaining. I don’t care about the cost, it’s the principle.This is double dipping, and Nintendo and other game makers need to know we’re not okay with it.

    Lots of levels, but not a fun game by and large

    Suffers the same problem as the last 2D Switch game – sloppy controls. Add to that level design that tends towards frustrating gimmicks and mild puzzles instead of classic Mario level design, and it makes for a game that, when frustrating, is just an annoying game that isn’t very fun.Particularly awful parts of the game – wall jumping, which requires way too much precision for the Switch’s stick. There’s actually a level that’s all wall jumping, but there are so many failed jumps, that the difficulty is in the game mechanics themselves, not the level design. Another PITA – different levels have different movesets, so one level, you have to wall jump everywhere, but the next level doesn’t even allow it (which you typically find out by dying) I’ve been stuck on some levels simply because they require some new mechanic that I didn’t even *know* about (i.e throwing jump pads *up*) Add all that to the slip n slide motion (it’s like ice….until you get to an ice level, which is like Teflon)Don’t buy this game just because you love the Super Mario games – this is marginally one, and more like a clone.

    What a game!??

    I am not sure if I should call this game “amazing” or “a great game” because overall this game is more than those two meanings. In other words, the way they made this game was to make it for everyones liking while in addition to making each person feel free of exploring there own ideas towards making anything and creating the impossible while also having fun with anyone at anytime. In addition, while the game lets you create your own courses in game which can be super fun for some people there is also the other half that say it’s not there cup of tea which if you feel that that’s you don’t you worry yet your still not left out of the game yet because there is a mode called “story mode” which lets you play courses that have been made by Nintendo and are at times tricky in a way that can be fun and challenging for you at times. Also, lets say you also don’t like “story mode” in game right, well again you are still not left out of the game yet if you were wondering because not only did they include those two features that the games has but also you have the ability to play online with other people but it’s important that you have a subscription of Nintendo Switch online because without that you cannot play with other people and that can feel a bummer without having no one to play with online. But if you have Nintendo Switch Online or you bought the subscription you can enjoy your time playing millions of courses made by other people and competing against other people you would want to beat and remember since we don’t have the miiverse functionality here in the Nintendo Switch you still get to use or make you own mii character while using it as a profile of you in game for others to see your records in game etc… . As I said this game is beyond the two meanings I mention above and it’s more than a game it’s where possibilities and dreams happen all the time you start creating and playing while also having fun all the time and lastly creating what you thought to be impossible. So now, what will be your dream course in this game? Go find out now by buying the game because Super Mario Maker 2 is where you build your courses and always have fun. I hope you have fun after buying the game because trust me it’s more than having fun reading this lol.

    Did you love Mario Maker 1?

    If yes, you’re gonna love this one. It’s a “good enough” improvement to warrant purchasing.If no, if you give it a chance; you’re probably going to at the very least like this one.

    Definitive Mario Creator Toolset For All Ages

    Mario Maker 1 on Wii U was Nintendo’s answer towards players who wanted to create their own unique takes on Mario levels without venturing into the realm of modding or home brews. Mario Maker 1 created a deep, but simplistic toolset that any age of gamer could find accessible, but Mario Maker 2 takes everything we enjoyed back on Wii U, and it makes it bigger, deeper and even more fun. See, I always felt like Mario Maker 1 was a mixed bag: you might end up with excellent user-created levels, or you might find yourself putting the controller down while a moving platform takes you right to the flagpole. Creativity can be both interesting and dull at the exact same time. Luckily, Mario Maker 2 consists of actual single player content as well as Course World level filters so you have more ways to tailor the experience to your liking. The story mode is fairly good too, with the premise being that the ‘undo dog’ resets the structure of Peach’s castle, leaving you with ‘job’s (i.e. Levels) to complete in order to earn coins which can be used to rebuild the structure from scratch. This mode alone could have been a game in its own right, and it functions well beyond your everyday tutorial. Playing is only half the experience though, and I’m sure you’re curious how the Switch version handles level creation. My main question going into Mario Maker 2 was…how will the level creation work if my Switch is docked? On Wii U, you created levels using the stylus on the gamepad, with only dimmed overlays on the TV. Only after switching over to ‘Play’ your creation, were you able to finally look up and see your level in action on the big screen. On Switch, it’s physically impossible to be able to create your level on the tablet, then simply look up at the TV after it’s done; you naturally have to walk up to your dock and mount the console. Nintendo actually made this process fairly simple: when docked, you can use any controller to your liking, and utilize the analog sticks, which act as pointers on the screen(there is no motion control option currently). While in handheld, you utilize touch input, such as what we did on the Wii U gamepad. The controller inputs actually feel pretty good, and it is as accurate as you’d need it to be! The level creation tools are insanely deep, with literally hundreds of combinations that can be formulated to create challenges, puzzles and artistic beauty into a multitude of Mario backdrops. New to Mario Maker 2 is the inclusion of different backgrounds and customization options for Mario Bros, Mario Bros 3, New Mario Bros U, Super Mario World, as well as the newly introduced 2D gameplay from Super Mario 3D World! Course World has also has been given some much needed options, such as to properly filter out levels you actually WANT to play, such as by selecting ONLY Mario 3D world levels or puzzle oriented ones for when you are in the mood to solve something. Coop play is also a thing now, even if it ends up becoming a bit of a mess while working with someone else to play or create a level. The whole package is absolutely fantastic, and a must-play for anyone looking to create, play and experience the best Mario creator toolset Nintendo has ever released. Even if you aren’t into making levels yourself, there is enough content here to keep you entertained well between other major Switch games, and the replay-ability is nearly infinite, as active community engagement will keep the game fresh for years to come.

    Good for teaching kids Coding!

    Kids haven’t stopped playing! Great game- admittedly I skipped the original of this title, but I saw speed run stuff on YouTube.I wasn’t sure how I’d like it- but I have to admit, the kids love it, and it’s a great reinforcement to coding for young ones. My 7 y/o makes a stage or a section, tries it, sees the errors or pitfalls, and modifies until it works.So it’s really more brain building than I ever would have expected. Pleasantly surprised.And I’m having a blast playing on the online community shared games, so I can try other people’s crazy stages.

    List of Changes /Features

    First thing to note is that if you don’t have Nintendo Online subscription, some features will be inaccessible to you: Share and play user created levels.This game has more tools to make your own Mario 2d levels. Some features are omitted from previous game, but overall experience is better. There’s a new Super Mario 3D World theme that can be accessed; opening up more possibilities, and this version includes local and online multi player.Let’s go over some of the games’ features:1. Story Mode:Beat levels to restore Peach’s castle.Similar setup to the 3DS version of the game100+ original levels made by NintendoLevels are made by developers of the game, and is really creativeThese levels give you great ideas to make your own levels2. Yamamura’s DojoIn depth tutorial mode to build levels.When creating levels, better to use capacitive stylist than your fingersBest to create levels in handheld mode. TV mode can be more tedious especially when inserting multiple objects in quick secession3. New objects:A. Create slopesCan now create slops. Original game was all flatAlso make slops with conveyor beltIn Super Mario Bros theme; small Mario now has a crouching sprite, but cannot actually slide down the slopesB. On/off switchSwap red/Blue blocksChange tracksMake conveyor belts change directionsC. Angry SunCan insert Angry Sun into your level.Will follow and attack you while playing through levelD. Snake blockCan setup trajectory of moving blockE. See SawsAdd to play around with balanceF. Swinging clawGrab and swing to get to new destinationG.

OnlineNeed Nintendo Online Membership to play onlineGo to course world to browse other’s users creationsBrowse by popular courses. If anything like old game, popular youtube, twitch users will show up top and not much creative levels in the long run will show up top. which is super lame.There’s a like (I like it!) and dislike (Boo!) button. Hopefully this solves the issueAble to search by tag: Puzzle solving, auto scroll levels, short and sweet, speed run, etc.Endless challenge mode. A mode where you keep playing random custom user created content until you lose all your lives or exit out. This mode has a leader boardAble to play multiplayer with others in same level in cooperative or competitive settingIf you play competitively, you get a versus rating (ranked)Still have to input Maker ID to view friends’ levelsCan download courses and play offline when not at home or at location with no wifi.7. Online Maker ProfileCreate your own mii-like character/avatar.Get shirts and hats by completing various objectivesMaker points. Get points if people like your levels. Again popular online streamers get advantage here which is unfair to other players as it’s hard to get noticed.8. Co-op play:Can play levels together (local only). Cannot play online with friends (unless you get a lucky match-up). Heard Nintendo is going to patch this in later, but as of this review you’re not able to play with friends online.Able to build levels cooperativelyWireless nearby play. Able to play with 3 other Switch consoles9. Set winning conditionsExample: collect all coins, defeat all enemies, finish level with power up, finish level but must defeat certain amount of a specific enemy, etc10. Mario 3D world game styleMore options than traditional level builder like climbing walls as cat Mario, insert clear pipes, use warp boxes, ride in koopa troppa car, banzi bill can fly toward screen, new enemies, do flips, etcCannot toggle through Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 3, and Super Mario World when in this mode. If you try to toggle through in create mode, it will erase all dataSome items/options not available in this style vs the others. Have to memories what works and what doesn’t when creating11. The title screen no longer contains hidden Easter eggs in it.12. No longer have The Gnat Attack (fly swatting) minigame13. No longer have shaking functionality, but can tap and have pop up menu on items/enemies without going into sub menu14. New music themes15. Cannot record sounds since the Nintendo Switch doesn’t have a mic16. No amiibo costumes17. No pipe stacking18. Course ID shortened to 9 characters19. Able to see would record time completion for each level in pause menu20+.

    Worth It

    Let me start this by saying I’m not a creative person, and I do not design levels. My review will be from a playing only point of view, not a making one.Super Mario Maker 2 is a great Mario experience, in which there is a full-fledged story mode, as well as endless user-generated content. The story mode alone has as much gameplay as a standalone 2D Mario game, and is a fun experience. As for the user-generated content, as long as you have an online membership ($20 USD a year) and an internet connection, there is a nearly unlimited selection of levels to play through. This game is truly limitless.If you do not have an online membership, you are limited to just story mode levels (and any you create) and has the amount of content expected of a $60 Mario game.If you do have an online membership, the game has well over $80 ($60 game + $20 online fee) worth of Mario content as long as you can connect to the internet. You can play any level form the online selection, posted by other players, and can even download levels for offline playback.For the price, I do not see a need for any other 2D Mario game to exist at the moment, as this will provide infinitely more content across the five game styles provided at launch.TLDR: Get it, it’s fun and worth the money

    I’ll pour Pasta Fazool all over my face if you don’t end up enjoying this game. It’s worth it for the 100 pre-made levels alone! My wife is getting tired of hearing trite Italian phrases out of my mouth every several seconds while playing this game though, so use those sparingly is my advice. AYYYYY IM WALKIN’ EEERE
