As an old-school gamer who was 6 years old when the original Super Mario Bros came out, this game is one of the things my inner child is utterly thrilled with. My older brother and I would sit designing our own Super Mario levels using graph paper, working out how many squares Mario could jump, producing scale drawings - we had so much fun back in the day, and the only thing missing was the ability to play it. 30-odd years later, we finally get that dream. Mario Maker is every bit as perfect as you would expect. A wealth of options, so easily interchanged from level to level, from game style to game style. Add to that the Challenge modes, and the endless amounts of levels available from players the world over (including some which are just unbelievably complex, imaginative, challenging, brilliant and inspired in equal measures) and a community of people who GENUINELY love the series and the platform the game provides, and Super Mario Maker is firmly cemented as yet another example of a "must-have" Wii-U title. Wonderful game. Worth every single penny.
