General Comments
Never has a game with Mario's cheeky face stamped over it been bad and Nintendo not about to start! The latest in the line of mario games is a stunner! Despite the console leap, mario's image has remained intact and the game is undoubtably from the same line as before. The obvious leap is the graphics, pin sharp and utterly believable (if you believe in giant ducks). This time Mario's main line of defence is a hi-tec hose. This at first might seem incredibly strange (I know it did for me) but it doesn't spoil the game in the slightest, it just makes it a bit easier to predict the challenges.

As sound goes, the music will scar you for life, you'll be humming it for ages and the sound effects are typically cartoony. The only voices used are 3 second babbles at the beginning of each paragraph (yes, you'll need your reading glasses) but each character still has a unique 'voice'.

The one thing I find amazing about this game is how interactive it is. For example, if you bounce on a civilian (as you do) they will be shocked and then shout at you. If anything gets wet (which it often does) something usually happens including exploding birds (?)

This is a seriously addictive game, seriously! I wish my bladder was bigger! All this fantastic game fits into just a few blocks on your memory card!

One thing gamers seem to be a bit confused over is this and let me explain it...

...colourful does not mean babyish! Blood isn't everything!

Anyone who can get over this (and is smart enough to have a gamecube) will have a great time for ages.
