Excerpt: The New Super Mario Bros. Wii game is a lot of fun. I just learned how to play it last night when I bought it. It takes some time getting used to the various controls on the Wii remotes for that game, but it isn’t impossible.
Control issues banged together with tough level designs doesn't go well,which is a shame because the game is presented beautifully.

Summary: I've been a fan of Super Mario games since the 1990's and until I played this game I had loved every Mario platformer I've played with the exception of Super Mario Bros 2. The main problem I have with this game is it's controls are slow to respond which feels unlike a Mario game because every other Mario platformer I've played have had fast-to-respond controls.
