Rated 10 out of 10 by Vaux A Return to Hard Games
The downward trend in gaming to ever easier games has made things a bit boring. Mario Games have even gone to the point of putting in Super Guides if you die too much. Back in my day that sort of stuff was reserved for cheats. If you want to breeze through a game in 2 hours with cheats fine, but they shouldn't be apart of the standard game. Luigi removes the hand holding, cranks up the difficulty, and shortens the levels. Comparing my game play of the Original Game to the Expansion shows that even with shorter levels the added difficulty evened out the play time so that I spent about 25 hours on each. The only thing this could have used was modified boss battles, and a changed up world map. However, since it was an expansion it was much more than I expected. 80 brand new levels is much more than has been expected of expansions over the last 5 years. It's a welcomed change of pace. If you passed on MarioU because of the easy trend then pick this up when it is released Stand Alone.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Gameknight GREAT ADD ON!
I wouldn't recommend this for people to buy alone, but with the New Super Mario Bros U it's well worth it. This is an extremely hard and challenging version of a mario game starring Luigi. I also love playing as Luigi as much as I did on Super Mario Bros 2 on Nes. The only downside of this game is that they are reusing the same world as New Super Mario Bros U when they could've just made a Luigi type world of his own. With that being said it's so much fun. I hope you guys loved it as much as me It's a bundle buying rating for me.
Rated 1 out of 10 by legoland1324 This game is horrible.
This game is a waste of time and money. Does Nintendo really expect people to actually by this game? It's impossible to explore the game or get any star coins. You can only play for 100 secounds on each level where in other mario games it's 500 secounds. There isn't a real point in getting this game. Now we all know why this game is so cheap. Luigi get his first chance in the spotlight and he gets screwed over. This is the only game every where you can lose on the first level.
Rated 8 out of 10 by legoland1324 OK I take my last review back.
When I gave my first review, I had just purchased this game. It took me a couple tries (OK a LOT of tries), but I finally had beaten the acorn plains world. The reason it took so long is because I was trying to explore the levels a little to get secret worlds and star coins. When I figured out the time limit, I was outraged. But I already had spent 20 bucks on this DLC so I figured that I might as well finish the game. It's actually not that bad. If you want a challenge, get this game!
Rated 9 out of 10 by enderboy221 Even better than the original.
New Super Luigi U is a fun side-scroller that is even better than New super mario bros u. The gameplay is fun, and the challenge is welcome. The graphics look great, but just like the music it could be better. For $20 though, this game has a large amount of content. Buy this game if you have a Wii U
Rated 9 out of 10 by smoov It has it's ups and downs.
Basing off my summary, I will use "up" or "down" from the original. Bringing out propeller and penguin to the whole game- UP. Cuting down the time for levels-UP. Getting rid of challenges, boost rush, and using Miis-DOWN. Graphics, play features, and Nabbit-UP. Soundtraack- No different, but DOWN.
Rated 6 out of 10 by wiiu360 This reminds me of super mario lost levels
This is a good game but for some reason it reminds me of super mario brothers lost level I guess because they made it more harder to comply beat the game I guess
