It's a blend of those games and the 2D Mario as far as gameplay (but with linear levels as @Anthony_ mentioned). So if you like those then you'll love this one. It's also four-player co-op so that's a lot of fun, and I believe they're bringing online capabilities for that as well. I put it up there with Odyssey in terms of enjoyment (although it's been years since I've played it on Wii U). It's also one of the most difficult Mario games I've played. I remember some of those final levels requiring absolute precision to collect everything.
