New Super Mario Bros. 2~{3DS}~

Just finished NSMB2 this game on the 3DS is awesome I really got into it, side scrolling action at its best. The 3D effect on it is ok but I played majority of it without 3D, IMHO one of the best Mario games to be released. Co-op is decent but what really got me was the coin rush mode which I feel is classic collecting gold gold gold, collect as many coins as you can in a set amount of time. You can play this as regular Mario or the invincible White Raccoon Mario, all in all if your looking for great side scrolling action this is it.
