Mario Pinball Land – Consumer Guide

Brad Gallaway's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Comic Mischief

Parents
should probably keep their kids away. The game is bright and colorful enough to attract young ones, but they probably won't get much playtime out of it unless they have large amounts of patience and coordination. (Or they don't mind playing the same few boards over and over.) There is no questionable language or sexual content.

Pinball Fans should be aware that the game is not the average videogame pinball. The small boards and change in focus are likely to bore folks looking for a more traditional experience. But, it might fit the bill if a challenge and change of pace are desired.

Mario Fans, forget about it. This is definitely not one of the pudgy plumber's better efforts. Gamers on the go or those with short attention spans should note that the game is perfectly designed to be played in tiny chunks, the only downside being that the save feature is completely stupid-if you don't actually save before you turn the power off, all of your previous data is lost. You've been warned.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will have no problems. There's only a small snippet of text story during the intro, and the rest of the game is dialogue-free.
