Product Details:

It's been more than 20 years since Super Mario Bros. first arrived, and now Mario and Luigi are back in an all-new platformer for Nintendo DS. Boasting incredible 3D graphics to accompany classic 2D gameplay, this fast-paced adventure will have Mario fans cheering. New Super Mario Bros. features eight all-new worlds, each filled with extra levels, hidden paths, and secrets galore. It's possible to complete the game without visiting every world, which means you'll have to track down many alternate exits to visit every nook and cranny in the game.

  • Run, jump, and stomp your way through raging volcanoes, tropical islands, snowcapped peaks, and unimaginable challenges!
  • Grab a Mega Mushroom and grow to incredible proportions, or smash through your foes in a blue Koopa shell!
  • There are two multiplayer modes in New Super Mario Bros. -- Mario vs. Luigi and Minigames. In Mario vs. Luigi mode, it's brother vs. brother in a race for Stars. The goal of the game is to collect the Stars that appear throughout the stage at timed intervals. If your brother gets a Star first, don't worry. Any time you damage your bro, he'll drop one of his Stars and you can claim it for yourself. This mode is available for two players, and you only need one game card to play.
  • New Power Ups! You'll find classic power-ups like the Super Mushroom and the Fire Flower in the game, and there are some all-new power-ups that let Mario explore the Mushroom Kingdom like never before.
  • New Moves! New Super Mario Bros. expands Mario's arsenal of moves to include some very powerful advanced techniques. If you want to uncover every secret in the game, you'll have to master them all.
  • The Minigames mode offers a wide variety of simple touch-screen activities. You can challenge them solo, or use them as the basis of a minigame tournament for up to four players. The minigames may be simple, but they're surprisingly fun when you're putting your skills to the test against your friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Times have sure changed...for the better. It's been almost 30 years since the original release of Super Mario Brothers for the Nintendo Entertainment System. If you're a newcomer on the internet and were born around 10-15 years after this game was released...you should close the browser right now or at least find a more kid-friendly website because the internet can be a very evil place. Or just stay here and read this review. Anyway, long story short, Super Mario Brothers: Innovative, popular, successful, breakthrough...at the time that is. And it can still be fun at times here and there. Okay, I haven't played the game all the way through, but I played a demo of it in Super Smash Brothers Brawl (worth your money), and I did have some fun and joy looking back on how it all started. I did notice one thing though: the game has been pretty outdated. The levels aren't that creative, the gameplay is a bit simplistic due to the whole environment, the fast timer feels kind of cheap, even though the levels are rather short, and not being able to scroll back to an area of a level felt kind of cheap. Not to mention the fact that if you were tall, fire flower or not, and you toughed an enemy, you went to small Mario no matter what, which was a bummer. 20 years later came the remake on the Nintendo DS. And there were many improvements over the original. If you touched an enemy and you had the blue shell or a fire flower, you just went to regular tall Mario. Meaning you can take more than 2 hits without having to get another power-up. The visuals look WAY more appealing, especially with all the new areas you visit like a Boo House or even a snowy field. And there's more complexity to the gameplay such as a new collectible and new bosses other than Bowser. The new collectible in this game are Star Coins. There are 3 Star Coins in almost every level. They can be used to open pathways to different levels or even mushroom houses that can lend you power-ups or even more lives. The new bosses though, while a nice way to get away from the whole fighting Bowser thing, are pretty simple, just jump on them 3 times, and you win. There are some bosses that have some unique spin on them, but other than that just jump on them, then ground pound them, and you're done. There are new power-ups in the game also such as the mini mushroom, the blue shell, and the mega mushroom. The mini mushroom shrinks Mario into a very tiny version of him that allows him to jump higher and walk on water (Hallelujah). However, if you touch an enemy while you're mini, you lose a life as well the mini ability. The blue shell lets you ram into enemies Koopa style while running. However, you won't move as fast if you were regular or fire Mario on maximum speed. The mega mushroom makes you into a huge version of yourself and lets you ram into enemies and other obstacles for a limited amount to time. But if you destroy enough obstacles, you can earn lives. Just fill up the gauge on the top while mega from yellow to green, and you get a 1-up. So far this game sounds fine, so what's its main flaw? It just feels too simple. Most of the levels are nothing spectacular, the locations are your typical Mario locations, and the game isn't rather hard. I only recommend this game to kids who like to play simple games since this game isn't too complex and also because if they decide to play this game again after 5 years or so, they'll have a more carefree nostalgia feel. Meaning they'll remember the days when life was rather easy and fun. Much like this game, but they will easily note lots of flaws like the lack of wonder or excitement in the levels or how the music, while still fine for the most part, isn't still that spectacular. I'll still probably play this game again just to see how fast I can beat the level as well as have some nostalgia value. If you want a fun and engaging Mario platformer, try out the Wii edition called New Super Mario Brothers Wii. However, this game does have some positives, but there's already the Wii edition and Sonic Classic Collection also on the Nintendo DS. Is is still worth trying this game out if you're 15 and have never played it before? Not really.
