Why Nintendo, did you waste your work on a game as bad as Mario Pinball? The
least you could do was add more levels. You could beat the game in 2 hours if
you only went for the 5 bosses in the game. And then you don't even unlock
anything when you beat it. Sure, the graphics are great and the pinball idea was
good but... Its a boatload of junk almost. Did you really need to waste your
money on a Mario game that would almost promise to not sell?
Nintendo, why did you make SMRPG, which was one of the best Mario RPGS ever made, and not make a sequel? All you could do was throw a Mario turned into paper at us. And then you make a sequel for that? You must be crazy! All you can do is make short but sweet games like Mario Pinball Land and re-release Donkey Kong, a four level game, for $20.00???? You must not be thinking about anything except MONEY, MONEY MONEY. Nintendo, you need to think about money AND QUALITY! If you really want to make people happy, make sure you think first.
Some suggestions for you Nintendo:
1. Make Mario Pinball Land: The "extension" You could make the first ever dual disc/dual cartridge game! Seriously, make a code for when you beat the first part and put it on the second part. It would make your games a big success.
2. Get a life. Seriously. Do you think people will buy a game with four levels for $20.00? Whoever came up with that idea for that price needs to have Donald Trump come and say, "YOU'RE FIRED!"
The point is Nintendo isn't living up to what it should be sometimes. (at least in the Mario sense) They need to think about if people will buy a game before they even begin to make it. If a game doesn't buy, Nintendo loses money. If Nintendo loses money, they go bankrupt. (I don't see that happening but it will if they keep making "blah" games like Mario Pinball) I repeat myself again: If you really want to make people happy, make sure you think first. Wow, that can actually go to real life too....
