New Super Mario Bros. U
Seems similar with a bit of freshness...
New Super Mario Bros. U is a solid title for the Wii U. In my opinion, it's not really a system-seller though. The reason being is that there's not too much innovation from New Super Mario Bros. Wii. The gameplay mechanics feel the same and the only innovations include new forms of Yoshis and new items. To me, it felt as though I was playing New Super Mario Bros. U in HD. That leads to my second point about this game, the HD graphics. It's very nice to finally see Mario in HD. Although it is a 2D side-scroller, when you play this game on an HDTV it really just pops. Very nice touch and very beautiful. Other than, that it feels like any other Mario. In my opinion, it is too easy for my taste. But, I guess it makes it easy for most kids to pick up and play. Another point, I have to make is the multiplayer. Once you get 4 players running around the maps, it becomes total madness (In a good way). The Boost Mode is what levels the amount of multiplayer madness and the level of challenge it creates. Anyway, New Super Mario Bros. U is a solid game for the Wii U. Although, it does feel very similar to past games as there is not too much innovation here.
Best of the "New" series
Being a "New" Mario game, I kept my expectations to a minimum. However, the game surpassed them. The "New" games have always been solid, but NSMBU adds little touches that put it above the others. I love the detail in the backgrounds, the progression of Peach's Castle turning into Bowser's castle and the sprawling map: featuring many branching paths/secret exits that are seriously secret. It's too bad the OST features just a couple memorable tracks and the graphical style of the New series is getting quite stale, or else the game could've joined the ranks of SMB3 and SMW.
Excellent graphics, excellent story, lots of fun, everything to expect out of a Mario game. Strongly recommend it!!
MArio da da da da da da da

Mario Bros. is A-mazing
Mario Bros. is A-mazing. Mario and Luigi are great. Mario Bros. is A-mazing. Mario and Luigi are great. Mario Bros. is A-mazing. Mario and Luigi are great. Mario Bros. is A-mazing. Mario and Luigi are great.
More of the same...
It's great if you really like Mario. If you've grown bored with the typical Mario formula, then don't bother. It's nice to see that Nintendo went back on their word about pricing none of the Nintendo developed games (i.e. Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda...) above $50. Yet another company getting too greedy and thinking their stuff is worth more than it really is. Not worth it IMO unless you're a kid or casual gamer.
Its Mario's hail mary
This is very good but doesn't push the Wii u's graphics and sound performance as strong. Mario was known for simple and complex gameplay at the same time and Nintendo did it again. But why don't you sit down and play rayman legends, and SHOW ME if Mario can best the graphics and sound
Best Mario title yet, JACK!!
When I first saw this game, I was obsessed with Club Penguin or LEGO or something, so I basicly thought it was really, really stupid. Then I got obsessed with Mario and NSMB2. Then I heard about New Super Mario Bros. U. I thought it would be great. Then I went to Gamestop one day and saw a Nintendo Wii U that had pictures of games on the gamepad. I clicked on NSMBU and started to play the demo. The game was plain Amazing. The graphics were BEAUTIFUl in HD. I LOVED the squirrel suit. The new Acorn Plains music is epic, and the level design and gameplay is great. The Baby Yoshis are the BOMB!!! Overall, go buy it!!! This game is great for everyone!!
Great, in most parts of the game!
This game is a great addition to the Super Mario series! I liked the gameplay, the stages, and the music! The only thing I didn't like is that when you played multiplayer with the GamePad, rather than actually playing as a character you would just provide assistance to players 2-5 rather than actually playing. However, besides that part, the game is pretty good!
Icing on Peach's Cake, if you will.
This game impressed me, and it's one of my favorites. My favorite part of it is Challenge Mode. It keeps you with something new! If there was 1 thing I'd make better if I was a developer, it would be to be able to "Super Guide" "The Final Battle" and unlock everything beating it yourself unlocks. Great for friends in 1-4 Grade.
