Not just one of the most versatile 2D game creation tools on consoles but the best collection of new Super Mario courses since the 90s.

Building your own Mario levels isn't as exciting as it was in 2015 on Wii U, but the story mode is a lot of fun and the new tools lead to some novel experiences

Nintendo has delivered a much more robust and feature-rich Mario maker, and hope players will use it well.

Players now have the chance to make their own hellish, evil Mario levels on Nintendo Switch. Super Mario Maker 2 starts with the foundation established in the first game, and adds new themes, new game styles, and new items. It falters due to the loss of the second screen of the Wii U and 3DS iterations, and the lack of Amiibo costumes hurt, but this is still a fantastic package for a Mario fan or budding lever designer.

But that toolkit is only half of the equation. The other half is a platform game with no quality control, no impetus for putting legitimate effort into your original designs, and no way to weed out poor content creators other than trusting that players will be able to discern the difference between a bad level and good level and rate them accordingly. Given how many positive messages I've seen attached to genuinely bad stages, I don't have much faith in the Mario Maker community right now and I question whether it'll get better down the line.

Super Mario Maker 2 has given birth to one of those proposals that will become as big as your community wants them to be. In short, a work whose content feeds itself for its possibilities and which is deployed as a video game that meets all that could be demanded.

SMM2 it's more fun and full of content than its precursor, but at the same time it's a step back, because it put walls around some content (World Levels, created by players), forcing you to subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online to play that part of the game. And it's an important chunk, because after completing the Story mode, it's the place to go.

Super Mario Maker 2 is all that the original was and more. The Story Mode feels like a proper campaign, demoing all of the old and new feature and barmy possibilities found in the intuitive level creator. It's a shame that it features some typical Nintendo online stumbles, but it shouldn't be long before that's forgotten in the face of the boundless creativity of the Super Mario Maker community.

Nintendo brings to Switch one of its most successful games of Wii U, although it comes already without that surprise. Multiplayer modes, new styles and tools, more intelligence in the puzzle levels ... This second Super Mario Maker is essential if you didn't have the original, and if you are excited with the challenges created by others. This game is a tribute to 35 years of jumping and Goombas.
