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.
Summary: When the first NEW Super Mario Bros came out I was PUMPED! Finally, they'd gotten away from the 3D style (don't get me wrong, I do enjoy that!) but I REALLY love the old school fill. However, now it's just kind of the same ol thing.
Another 2D Super Mario Bros game,except this is the first HD Mario game.This has the fun feeling of classic 2D Super Mario platformers whilst having features to make it feel fresh.

Summary: Here we go again,another 2D Super Mario Bros game,however this one is the first HD Super Mario game. I've been a fan of Super Mario platformer games ever since I played them on the NES back in the early 1990's and I've played most of the Super Mario platformer games and every time a new Super Mario...
Summary: This game is fun, but it is not as good as the Wii version. The game looks great in HD, is loads of fun in co-op and the levels are well designed. However, this game gets very boring after beating the main campaign and there are very few levels that are worth repeating.
Summary: This is a great looking update to the traditional Mario format, which has always been a favourite with my kids. My son brought his friends home from school to play it on the day our new Wii U arrived. Cue 3 hours of non-stop shrieks of enjoyment!
It doesn't push any boundaries, but it's familiar and refreshing offering makes for one of the best Wii U launch titles!

Summary: "It's yet another familiar entry into the New Super Mario Bros series. But it's definitely the best so far." Last year has been a significant one for the New Super Mario Bros series, since Nintendo had released two games of it in that year. That isn't to be said it was a very good one.
Summary: I had fun playing New Super Mario U and this is really all that matters. The game has the bright and cheerful animation that we all have come to expect from any Mario games. It has great responsive controls, and a decent variety of levels.
