    The only playable characters are Mario and Luigi, but there are a bunch of Yoshi's in the game, and Geno even makes a cameo (Didn't put that in spoilers b/b it really has nothing to do with the story). So yeah, there are a bunch of old characters making cameos.

    ...but none of that saves the game from its repetitive gameplay. I think Nintendo, or whichever developer, tried too hard.

    Repetitive gameplay in a 40+ hour RPG may be a bad thing, but M&L's 20 hour story is just short enough to keep the simplicity from getting to you.

    If anything, M&L's battle-system frees you from repetitively mashing "attack" in battles, it frees you from simply pressing a button to execute monster attacks, and it keeps you focused on the action. If anything, M&L's few innovations are designed to keep the RPG genres most repetitive aspects, random battles, involving and fresh.

    Though I agree, the overworld and adventure puzzles are nothing to gawk about.

    While some of the platform puzzles, such as the mirrors in the university, did tend to drag out a bit, I thought the fantastic battles more than made up for it.

    Sure seems like 40+ hours! I bought this game 2 weeks ago and I'm not even halfway!
