So, this game really isn’t what I expected. That’s what I get for not paying attention to the previews.
Buuuut I can’t talk about that at the moment. However, I can definitely say that I’ve decided any game in which Toad speaks can never, ever receive a top score. I have to dock Nintendo at least a fraction of a point every time I’m reminded that they’ve turned the best and most playable character in the Mario world into a shrieking retard whose voice sounds like it belongs to a chain-smoking five-year-old girl speaking in falsetto.
