Excerpt: New Super Mario Bros Wii is one of those games I had to go out and purchase at full price. Family Friendly Gaming has spoiled me over the years. Brand spanking new video games cost a lot of money to purchase. Nintendo is one of the worst when it comes to price too.

Wii was an exception to that rule, after I heard many great things from all my friends about it. Thankfully, unlike some games in the past, I was not disappointed. Super Mario Bros. Wii is entertaining, well designed, and offers plenty of challenges for Super Mario fans and non-fans alike.
Excerpt: et's take a ride in our time machines: the year was 1986, and my good grade school buddy Brendan and his brothers had just received an NES. "Look at those graphics," we exclaimed. I don't think any of us even knew what graphics were at the time, but there was one thing we knew for certain: was something special.
Summary: Parents need to know that New Super Mario Bros. Wii offers fun cooperative gaming for players of all ages. While this "E-rated" game has some light cartoon violence, it is of the jump-on-top-of-baddies variety.

Excerpt: mentioned together in the same article very often, if at all. But, until their respective releases, the two occupied the very same apprehension-driven space in my mind.
