New Super Mario Bros.
Retro meets modern!
If you're a Nintendo fan, particularly a Mario fan- you'll definitely find this game fun. It's not truly difficult, but great for something to do when you have your free time. I grew up with Super Mario Bros. so this was an absolute delight to play. It really brought the retro idea and made it work, but with a fresher appeal. A lot of things are the same- Mario and Luigi are playable of course, the goombas, koopa troopas, Toad, and Bowser's castle is all there, though they've managed to introduce some new things as well. Such as jumping up the walls, mini mushrooms, and mushrooms which make him seriously giant! The graphics really do add a lot to this game, it's a pretty gorgeous upgrade from the old Super Mario Bros games of fame. My only complaint is that at times, it's a bit difficult moving Mario, he seems to slide a bit, oddly. Besides that however, it truly is a nice game to have in your collection and I'd recommend it as a must for Nintendo and Mario lovers.
DS Owners Must Get This
If your a DS owner then you should get New Super Mario Bros. The game brings back the classic 2D adventure feeling this time in the palm of your hands. The levels are well designed and are just beautiful. The game is very fun and engaging. To add more spice it is equipped with gorgeous 3D graphics some of the best seen on the DS. The game is packed with tons of contents including variety of fun Mini games and unlockables. Like I said before, you got a DS or even a 3DS, this game is definitely worth a pick up, you will not be disappointed.
It's alright. Better than average, but not phenomenal. I only beat a few worlds because it couldn't hold my attention, but it was a solid game. Perfect for kids who obsess over Mario.
This is a great game.The only reasons I didn't rate this a 10 was because,I don't like the sound and the graphics are bad.
It started out ok but as time went on in the game it was the same as all the other Mario games I guess I'm stuck back in the day when it was Nintendo 64 those where the good old days. Not a fan of the new Mario stuff. SORRY.
Brought back my Mario memories!
I love mario and this did not fall short! It brought back my original mario game memories from when I was little! I think this is a must have for everyone!
A New Classic!
I got this game a while back (3-4 yrs.) and I still play it to this day. Just from that, that can tell you a bit about the game, with it's lasting appeal. The gameplay is new and enhanced from the old Super Mario Bros, and is about a million times better! The only con I can find about this is the graphics are typical Nintendo DS tink. But do graphics make gameplay? Not at all! Sure, they enhance gameplay, but you only need a LITTLE bit of graphics to make a game. It doesn't have to be all shiney, new, and golden! Now, let's get back to the game. The game is SO amazing that I have kept my DS for 2 years longer than I wanted to, JUST to play this one little game! -OGameReviews, 11/25/12
Another Great Mario Game
Super Mario has had so many great games. We start to think eventually he will have his first bad game. This, however, is another awesome Mario game. The most iconic video game character of all time is back in another awesome platformer. This game has new power-up such as the Mega Mushroom. If you love Mario this belongs in your Nintendo DS.
Nintendo did it again!!!!!
Ok. this is the best game I have right now, out of all 11 games I've gotten. There are so many things that make this game epic: 1. Its fresh, new original, and fun. 2. Its got all-new power - ups. 3. Its like the wii version, but on the go. 4. AND SO MUCH MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are a few things that make it stupid . 1. mini mushrooms get you killed 2.blue koopa shells and mega mushrooms aren't used often. 3. the bosses. if it would let me, id say its great for any gamer!!!! i got it on monday night, and im at the beginigng of world 5. whoever says this game sucks , has gaming issues. multiplayer is just amazing, but the graphiic are a ok. this is even better than super mario 3d land!!! Overall, an epic game.
Gameplay awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sound :( . The could done better with the music. And the boses are EASY
