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.
Excerpt: The new Mario game follows the same formula as the Mario games made 20+ years ago. It might have been fun and exciting having a new side scrolling Mario game again, but really? Didn't they just did this for the wii and the 3ds?
Mario hasn't looked better, but feels almost too famaliar

Summary: It was finally time for Mario and company to make the transition to HD. They have never looked better. Too bad the game doesn't live up to the looks. By no means is this a bad game. If you are a fan of past Mario games, then you will be a fan of this game. If you are a fan of Mario Bros.
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.
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: With every system nintendo has made there has always been a mario game to go along with it. Ever since the NES and super mario bros to the latest games on the Wii such as paper mario and mario galaxy this iconic brand has sold more systems than any other brand that is out there.
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,
