New Super Mario Bros. U Review (Wii U)

Softpedia
23 January 2013
  • Summary: New Super Mario Bros. U is a game that never strays from the classic mechanics of the series and manages to introduce enough content to keep fans occupied for dozens of hours. The quality level also makes it a very good reason to buy the new Wii U home console.
  • Pros: + Level design, + GamePad control, + Four-player matches
  • Cons: - Limited innovation, - Requires 4 scavenged Wiimotes

New Super Mario Bros. U Review (Wii U)

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.

Review: New Super Mario Bros. U (Wii U)

Gamer 2.0

  • Conclusion: Every system launch wishes for a game like New Super Mario Bros. U , but only occasionally comes up with a SoulCalibur or Halo to show for it. This is the big one — the game out of the Wii U’s launch crop that we’ll still be playing for years to come. The main quest isn’t going to demand a huge time commitment from you, but it will leave you wanting so much more that you just won’t be satisfied until you’ve been through all the modes at length, gotten through every...

  • 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.

Teamwork plays major role in another fun Mario platformer.

Common Sense Media
26 November 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that New Super Mario Bros. U is an old-fashioned run-and-jump game. Players stomp on goombas, avoid spikes and pits of fire, and eventually take on Bowser himself and his minions in scenes with very mild, cartoonish violence. Teamwork and cooperation is more important than ever, with one player assigned to help his team mates by creating platforms at critical times to catch falling players or just block enemies.
