I am basically just posting this for the first line of this review.  I think we will all be thinking the something. I know I will.

97%: “It’s funny because the thing that annoys us most is that its fantastic graphics show us the sort of games we could have been playing for the past year had some developers bothered to pull their finger out. Throughout the whole game the graphics constantly amaze, with stunning visual effects, some remarkably huge playing areas, and characters that are positively filled to the brim with personality. The sound is some of the best we’ve heard in a Mario game. Some of the power-ups give a similar sense of nostalgia. While some of the missions are quite simple, others will test the skills of even the most dedicated Mario fans.” – reviewer Chris Scullion
