If you have played any of the other New Super Mario Brothers games, then this is pretty familiar territory for you, not much has changed really from any previous iterations you might have played previously.

If you absolutely gotta catch em' all then I suppose this will extend your enjoyment of the game a little bit, but I find it to be boring and not worth the time or effort to go through all of it.
