GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on video games. The site was launched on May 1, 1996, created by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein. It was purchased by ZDNet, a brand which was later purchased by CNET Networks.
The enhanced version of the 2013 Wii U game, Super Mario 3D World, drops on February 12 for Nintendo Switch. Ahead of its release, reviews of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury have begun circulating, and we’ve rounded up a list of some of them to give fans an idea of what critics think of the enhanced port, which includes Amiibo support and online multiplayer.
The game currently holds a 90 on GameSpot sister site Metacritic. Our own Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury review awarded the enhanced port a 9/10, with associate editor Steve Watts calling it “a spectacular package” that shows the “full extent of versatility in what a Mario game can be.” Many of the reviews share a similar sentiment, saying that both of the titles work together in tandem to highlight the breadth of Nintendo’s creativity and interests.
The bundle, which includes the enhanced Super Mario 3D World and the open-world campaign Bowser’s Fury, takes between 11 and 15 hours to complete and do everything. Check some of the review excerpts below to see what critics think of the dual package.
