Bowser’s Fury: Mario’s latest is not Mario’s greatest

In 2007, as a nice surprise for people who bought their Orange Box bundle, Valve bundled Portal: a short game, full of great ideas executed perfectly, accompanying a larger product as a deal-sweetener for people who might have already played the main parts of the bundle. Bowser’s Fury is similar to that, but I wouldn’t say what it accomplishes is nearly as impressive in 2021 as it was back then.

Can’t say it doesn’t look pretty. (Also can’t say that it matters too much.)

The very definition of breadth over depth.
