Bland.

GoldenJoe, Amazon

  • 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.

Just another Mario game

  • 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...

New Super Mario Bros. U - Nintendo tricks us again calling this "New".

  • Summary: Unless you're a hardcore Super Mario fan, I do not recommend this as the deciding factor for picking up the Wii U.
  • Pros: Game Play is still playable, visually nice, multi-player can be fun
  • Cons: Way too easy, more of the same thing, lazy in places

Not quite 'New,' but a few fun additions nontheless

Michael S. Nokes, Amazon

  • Summary: Let me start by saying I've been a Nintendo fan all my life. I've played and, to differing degrees, enjoyed every main-series Mario title. I have nothing but love for the Mario series. That said, I think Nintendo's starting to risk devaluing the Mario brand by releasing these 'New' Super Mario Bros. games. The first was refreshing, a fun and challenging throwback to much of what made the first Mario platformers so good.

Decent

  • Summary: Never played a 2D mario game and I found this game extremely difficult and frustrating to play as I constantly die and get annoyed by the controls nevertheless I keep coming back as I do feel that as I grasp it more I will enjoy it more, bloody stuck on the layer cake world.

  • Summary: Looks nice, to bad that in the MP the 1player cannot play, only assist with the new touch system. Good game, just way too short ~6-7 hours of playtime with first play through.

Super Mario Bros Old

TobiasBelch, amazon.co.uk
27 January 2013
  • Summary: The New Super Mario Bros series has steadily been declining in quality since its inception. The game is mechanically sound, being produced to a very high level of quality. The biggest problem with this game is the recycling of elements from previous games in the series, both thematic elements and audio and video assets from New Super Mario Bros Wii, NSMBW. Level design and world themes are very similar to the previous title, NSMBW.

Super mario bros.U

27 December 2012
  • Summary: Great to see mario in HD, it does all look very crisp, but I came away feeling underwelmed, it is not a better game than the 1st new super mario on the wii. U cant use the padas a controller in two player even though u can on one player meaning if u want to do two player u need two extra controllers.
