New Super Mario Bros. U Review (Wii U)

Softpedia
22 January 2013
  • Conclusion: New Super Mario Bros. U is clearly a must buy for those who have picked up the new Wii U home console from Nintendo and it might also be one of the main reasons to get the new hardware. The game is solid when it comes to core mechanics and as classic as possible without turning off modern gamers, but the Challenges and the Boost Mode also introduce some interesting new ideas to the series.
  • Pros: + Level design, + GamePad control, + Four-player matches
  • Cons: - Limited innovation, - Requires 4 scavenged Wiimotes

New Super Mario Bros. U Review (Wii U)

Vooks
16 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Not even six months have passed, and Nintendo is already release yet another New Super Mario Bros. title to the world. I’m not sure about you, but after New Super Mario Bros. 2 earlier this year I was ready to give the classic series a little bit of a break (at least, the 2D iterations). There was nothing wrong with the game conceptually, but it did lack that spark of joy most players feel when playing a classic Mario game. With the release of New Super Mario Bros.

  • Summary: New Super Mario Bros U has the ability to save the hardcore gamer in all of us, reminding us that classic gameplay can still be as fun as ever. There's no stopping that plucky Italian plumber; he always saves the day.
  • Pros: 2D Platforming at its finest, Gorgeous HD level design, Frantic co-op modes
  • Cons: Being betrayed by a fellow player in said co-op

New Super Mario Bros. U

  • Conclusion: In spite of a somewhat lazy presentation, New Super Mario Bros. U manages to captivate with just the right balance of fun, challenge, and variety. Perhaps it doesn’t leverage much of what makes the Wii U different, but via masterful implementation of the basics, it’s the closest thing to SNES Mario that we’ve seen in over 15 years.

  • Conclusion: All in all, New Super Mario Bros. U is Wii U’s first must-have title, especially if you’re a fan of Mario or platforming games. It’s the culmination of the New Super Mario Bros. sub-series, and perhaps the best 2D Mario title since the SNES era. This is all thanks to how well it strikes a balance between the offering of recognizable mechanics and original ones. It’s also great to finally see Mario enter the HD era, even if he didn’t get the full 1080p treatment.
