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

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.
Excerpt: Publisher: Nintendo Developer: Nintendo Genre: 2D platformer Release Date: November 30th 2012 Console: Nintendo Wii U Story Another Mario game another genre-defying gripping storyline: Mario’s arch enemy Bowser has once again successfully kidnapped Princess Peach.
Pros: The HD graphics are fantastic, baby yoshis and squirrel acorn are fun, great 4 play mode
Cons: Music could be better, very similar to the last game on the Wii,
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.
