When it was officially announced most people were quick to disregard it as another shameless money grab. Despite all the prejudice and completely opposite to the majority of expectation, Super Mario Run turned out to be quite a blast to play with.
While definitely not your everyday Mario title and honestly speaking, besides recognizable characters world art and music score, there is barely anything connecting this title with the rest of the Mario games. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not a good game on its own, not at all! In fact, most of us are actually enjoying the game on a daily basis. It definitely beats other games where you run and collect coins, that’s for sure. Toad Rally is especially fun when you have a lot of friends who are also playing the game. There’s nothing quite like beating your friends highest score and earning the bragging rights for that, don’t you agree?
Truly, the game has been nothing but pure fun for everyone we know so far, ourselves included and we don’t see any reason not to recommend it to everyone who likes a bit of casual game every now and then. And no, this is not a sponsored article.
Furthermore, the game is completely free to try out so you may see whether or not it’s for you. This is always a nice move from the developers side because that way we do not have to worry about paying for a product we might not be interested in. Also, for those of you that want a quick tour about what the game is all about but are too cool to watch a review of it, there are many ways to hack Super Mario Run, like this one for example so you may unlock all of the content while spending nothing at all. Think about it as an expanded demo, just don’t abuse it now since developers are also people who need to make a profit, alright?
So, yeah, all in all, Super Mario Run was a blast and a very fun experience to play through and it still is since the game has multiplayer feature which kind of grants it immortality. But, is it a good Mario game? Probably not. There’s nothing Mario-ish about it and as we stated before, it barely classifies as a Mario game save for some aspects.
But, is it a good, fun game overall? Most definitely! For those of you willing to overlook that it’s a Mario based game with nothing Mario-ish about it, you are certainly in for a lot of fun time with this one. And remember that it is (just like every other video game with multiplayer mode) always better to play with (or against) friends!
