Summary: This is a pretty cute game! Great to goof around with if you have a good humour about it; if you're the type to get frustrated easily, though, this title might not be for you. On multiplayer, it can get really chaotic. So play it for laughs! My biggest complaint: the two Toads. They're cute, but seriously? Why can't we play Peach or Daisy?
Summary: I never was a huge fan of the old Mario Games. I remember playing the very first Mario Bros. game in the NES (Nintendo's first home entertainment system) and liking it but not loving it like many people around the world can claim. I picked up this game after buying a used Nintendo Wii U for my little ones. But after playing with it for about a half hour, I can tell you that this game is Mega fun!
Summary: I've been playing video games since the first Super Mario Bros on the NES. There are many stellar Mario games, some of which are timeless classics. Unfortunately, the New Super Mario Bros series as a whole is the bottom of the plumber's barrel. It's a good game...but not a good Mario game. The absolute worst offense for me is the re-use of the terrible music from NSMBWii. Mario games often have catchy, memorable tunes, but this is as bland and forgettable as they come.
Summary: I bought this game so I'd have something to do with my little brother who's not old enough to get away with M rated games, but anyway...all that could be said about NSMBU is that it's just another Mario game, and frankly it's a bit too easy with the block creation mechanic. I'd suggest waiting until this goes down to $20-30 if you really wanted to play it, but then again if you really wanted it this isn't going to stop you, but don't take away from this that this game is...
Summary: It follows the standard 2D Mario formula, however unlike the last couple New Super Mario Bros games this one is actually pretty tough and will please hardcore platformer fans. I actually ran out of lives a few times. If you want a Mario game that feels new go for Super Mario 3D World but if you just want a solid 2D platformer this is a pretty good choice.
