Quick thoughts on Super Mario 3D World
With all the launch mayhem between the PS4 and Xbox One, the struggling Wii U gets what I think is the best game release this holiday season. 3D World is a colorful and amazing sequel to 3D Land on the 3DS, and each level stands out on its own. You'll have a hard, hard time stopping.
Multiplayer is even better thanks to more open space to run around in, so you don't accidentally bump into others like in New Super Mario Bros (unless you do it on purpose, which is just mean). Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad have their unique abilities like in Super Mario Bros 2, and I found that each character works well on mostly all the levels.
