The good thing about the Dr. Mario series was its multiplayer. This game does not have it. Other than that the game is exactly the same as the original but with updated graphics. If you have any game in the series, use that instead. If you have a console for any other game in the series, get that game instead. But if you do not have the system required, than this game is worth getting, it is still fun without the multiplayer, but would be better with it.
