I read this review over on Ars and I thought they were being totally nit-picky with the coins. But based on your review, there really are coins oozing from the ground and falling from the sky.

Sometimes it really does feel that way, yes. I rather enjoyed it, as my review makes clear, but some people are so busy finding such things odd that they forget to notice the clever level design that is happening all around them. I liked this new game more than I ever liked the original NSMB, but apparently I'm in the minority as far as critics go. Personally, I think this will likely be a case where general gamers are going to enjoy the game more than most critics.

"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world
