Super Mario Maker (for Wii U)


If you ever wanted to make your own Mario levels, Super Mario Maker for the Wii U is the way to do it.

Easy to use, relatively powerful level design tools. Graphics and mechanics feel faithful to the source games. Excellent level sharing and playing system. The best reason to collect Amiibos we've seen yet.

Tools don't support deep, complex changes to how objects and enemies work. Can't upload levels with recorded sound effects.

Super Mario Maker (Wii U) Review


Super Mario Maker is so much more than a toolbox. It's a stage.

Super Mario Maker is a toolbox and a stage that allows players to show off their imagination and long-built Mario platforming abilities. Its jam packed with content, much of it designed by the community and running the gamut of spectacularly good and...

After a last year that suffered from underwhelming gameplay, missing modes, and a general lack of creative vision, developer EA Canada needed to come out strong this year to prove it still has what it takes to make a relevant hockey game. With...

Super Mario Maker review – A phenomenon in waiting


I didn't think I'd like Super Mario Maker this much. Straight up. I thought it was going to be a one and done experiment on the part of Nintendo, and I assumed I'd play it a bit, familiarize myself with the process of making, sharing and playing levels...

If you buy this game, you’ll get your money’s worth. If it takes off like it has the potential to, Super Mario Maker will be be on everyone’s lips for a good long while.

Super Mario Maker


The first thing you need to know about Super Mario Maker on the 3DS is that, currently, you can't share or access created levels over the Internet. The reason I bring this up straight away is because you may think that the major selling point of this...

Super Mario Maker 3DS takes everything that worked on the Wii U and replicates it for a handheld experience. It's a shame that sharing levels via the Internet isn’t yet possible – but this game’s a joy all the same.

Super Mario Maker review


Nintendo gives players the crown jewels of 2D level design in Super Mario Maker, but it could do more to guide the creation process

Tutorial issues aside, there's still a lot to love about Super Mario Maker. The game's presentation is stunning, the nods to the SNES's Mario Paint are delightful, and if you're creatively minded, then you're sure to get a lot out of it. However, for...

Super Mario Maker


In anyone's hands but Nintendo's, Super Mario Maker could easily have fallen apart at the seams. Released this month, it is incredibly simplistic by design - players spend their time either making classic side-scrolling levels for - you guessed it -...

"Trusting other players for quality levels is risky business, but making your own is creative heaven."

Super Mario Maker review


Nintendo has delivered the perfect playable history lesson.

Super Mario Maker is the best creation game I’ve ever played. It’s so easy to make your own Super Mario stages, themed to the style of four different games, yet some of the levels made by the community are simply astonishing. While there’s no...

'Super Mario Maker' turns everyone into a game designer


'Super Mario Maker' for Wii U review: Making your own 'Mario' levels is deeply satisfying. And playing others' creations is pure, magical chaos.

Easy-to-use tools inspire creativity ; 's entire toolchest across the ages is available to you ; Endless number of fun player-made levels to try

Gated content means you can't dive into everything out of the box ; Wish it had filters for tagging levels

dumps Mario's powerful toybox in front of you, with elegant tools that can turn anyone into a creator.
