Beneath the warm familiarity of 3D World lies one of the strangest Mario games in years - and that's wonderful news.

Super Mario 3D World is marvelous and its fantastic co-op and variety will keep you entertained for hours.

3D World sees the plumber at the top of his game, and it's finally as fun to play with friends as it is solo. It doesn't redefine the franchise like previous entries have, but when the total package is as fun as 3D World, that's hardly a complaint.

Easily the best game on the Wii U and one that can proudly stand alongside Nintendo's greatest, even if it doesn't quite top the Super Mario Galaxy games.

Nintendo does it again, blending novelty with nostalgia to offer some of the best couch co-op out there

Super Mario 3D World is a sublime platformer that's full of wonderful ideas and fabulous level design.

It gets the balance right between nostalgic touches and clever new twists, and never once let me down with a boring boss or too-familiar retread. In all my years of playing with the Mario gang, I've never been quite so happy to hurl myself into the unknown, and 3D World delivers challenge, surprise and joy in almost every moment.

Nintendo has knocked it out of the park once again, making its latest platformer a must play.
