Honestly, it hasn't excited me that much. I seem to be alone in this opinion, but I didn't like Galaxy much, mainly because of the linear level design (I grew up on Super Mario 64). I prefer larger, more open levels than smaller segments. As this is sort of a cross between a 2D and 3D Mario game, I don't think it's going to be to my taste. I'll keep an eye on reviews though.
I feel the *exact* same way. I loved having the open levels of 64 and Sunshine, the linearity and occasional stupid occasion for Mario to throw himself into a black hole annoyed the hell outta me.
This looks like Galaxy with a few less stars floating around. Not really interested.
And if Mario Kart 7 includes a barrage of annoying items to keep you knocked out first place like the Wii one, then count me out of that one too. =/
Double Dash was the best of the lot, IMO. Especially utilizing multiplayer controls the way it did
