Super Mario Maker 2 is a highly anticipated sequel that offers players the tools to create their own 2D Mario levels. The game provides a deeper level creation package than its predecessor, resulting in a wide variety of creations from the community. However, the biggest surprise is the equally imaginative and well-stocked experience for those who prefer to play rather than create.
