Excerpt: Nintendo has a history of trying new things, and Super Princess Peach on the Nintendo DS is no exception. Princess Peach was out for a stroll when Bowser came a kidnapping. Since he was not able to get the princess, Bowser settled for Mario and Luigi. In an amazing role reversal, the damsel saves the heroes. This damsel has all kinds of distress in her lengthy adventure to save all the Toads, then Luigi, and finally Mario.
Excerpt: Kind of like saccharin, bubble gum, and Barbie dolls, it comes in a pink package. Unlike saccharin, bubble gum, and Barbie dolls, the stuff inside this pink package is very, very good. Before you pass off Super Princess Peach as a no-boys-allowed, chicks-only version of the Mario universe, play it. The story takes place on Vibe Island, which rests not far from the Mushroom Kingdom's shores. Otherwise, it's a cut-and-dry direct role-reversal of the standard Mario plot.
Excerpt: It’s about time Peach got her own adventure. Sure, she was a playable character in a few Mario games, but she’s never had an adventure to call her own. On top of that, this is really the first new 2d platformer we’ve gotten from Nintendo since Yoshi’s Island. Huzzah! The roles have switched this time around, and Mario, Luigi and a bunch of Toads have been captured by Bowser. It’s up to Peach to save the day as soon as she returns from her afternoon stroll.
Excerpt: For the last couple of months, thousands of players have been going at the multiplayer demo for Battlefield 1942. This is another of those games that had little hype and managed to gain its popularity solely based on sheer fun; the initial demo release had some pretty major bugs, but people played the hell out of it anyway. Now that the full game is out, everyone is wondering if the full game is as fun as the demo was. Is it worth the $50?
Conclusion: Super Princess Peach is niet meteen een klassieker van het kaliber Super Mario Bros, maar weet desondanks aardig te verrassen. Het is een van de betere platformgames op de Nintendo DS. De eenvoudige gameplay maakt dit spel ook toegankelijk voor erg jonge gamers die vooral het 'emotie'-systeem ongetwijfeld de max gaan vinden. Leuk!
Pros: Voer voor Mario-fanatics Vrolijke snoepkleurtjes Uitmuntende gameplay Emotiesysteem is leuk
