New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Classic Mario Perfection
New Super Mario Bros. Wii melds the side-scrolling gameplay of the classic Mario games with slick 3D graphics--and the result is pure platforming bliss. There's a little of everything here that made the NES and SNES Mario games great, including a few surprises. Along with the standard assortment of power-ups, there's also the Ice Flower, Propeller Helmet, and Penguin Suit to add a fresh twist (and yes, Yoshi does make an appearance in this game, albeit a brief one). Also new is 2-4 player co-op: Players 1-2 assume the roles of Mario and Luigi, while players 3-4 play as yellow and blue Toads. Things can get pretty hectic in co-op if you can't get everyone to coordinate their efforts--but it's still a blast, and less experienced players can always enter a bubble by pressing A to let others do the tougher portions for them. Aside from the main game, there's also the Coin Battle and Free-For-All modes to extend the multiplayer fun.
The controls are tight and play just like a Mario game should. You'll hold the remote sideways like an NES controller, with buttons 1 and 2 for jumping and actions. You can shake the controller to do a spin jump, as well as pick up items when next to them. Tilting it allows you to manipulate certain platforms, ect. It WILL take some getting used to, but the motion controls are never overused...so it's not an issue.
If you haven't played a Mario game in a while, fear not. Even though the later levels are filled with perils, checkpoints and extra lives are plentiful. If you die several times in any level, a Super Guide block appears in it. Hit it and you can watch as Luigi runs the course and shows you how to do it--an ingenius way to give beginners a boost. And if that isn't enough, you can also spend Star Coins you collect to watch gameplay videos that demonstrate how to farm for 1-ups, ect.
There's a lot to love about New Super Mario Bros. Wii, but Nintendo did drop the ball on a couple of things. There's no online support, which is strange for a multiplayer game in this day and age. Plus, Yoshi is only present is a select few levels. I'm not sure why Nintendo decided to do this; perhaps they wanted the new power-ups to take precedent.
Nevertheless, New Super Mario Bros. Wii is a stellar platforming game suitable for all ages. If you grew up in the 8-16 bit era, you may enjoy it even more than the Galaxy games.
This game is a great game, continuing on the Super Mario series. The graphics are good, the gameplay is incredible, and there are so many adventures to connquer. Hope this helped!
buy this game it is great there is some hard levels but you can beat it if you put you best into it i like it because the graphics are awesome get it you will not regret it trust me
I had this game preordered, but I really wasn't expecting much as this was my first mario bros game. Boy was I wrong! This was a a delightful game with hours upon hours of gameplay. Just when you think it's over, there is a whole secret world! I used to play this with my niece and nephew, and the wonderful thing with this game is that they put no limitations on multiplayer. Even to this day, I have all the large coins for all the levels except one. THAT is what gives people ocd.
Overall fun for the entire family
It was fun. The game was difficult for new gamers to get the hang of it, but it was still a fun experience.
I never finished this game. Why? Why not! Mario games are suppose to entertain, not infuriate people!
I have played Mario games since NES as well as in the arcade.I got this game about a yr. ago and love it but I don't play it that much and have never finished it.As it get's very hard the thing I really like about the game is if you can't beat a level after so many tries a green question mark will pop up like the boxes you hit for power ups,and you can hit it and let the computer complete the level for you and then you can try it again as it shows you where to go when to jump ect. The graphic's are great and the best for mario.Pick it up alot of fun and challenging game worth the money it also has replay value.Mario isn't just for kids anymore it is also good for hardcore gamers.
Mario keeps getting better with every game
I got this game last yr. when I got my wii. I always wanted to play this one and it lives up to all expectations and is the best Mario so far. I love the fact that four people can play at the same time on one screen.I also like that in single player mode if you can't get past the level after 4-5 tries a green question mark block appears,you hit it and the computer does the level for you and shows you how to get through it.You can play the level yourself if you want to.I love playing Mario it is fun and challenging as levels are hard very hard.If you like Mario you must get this game or play it at a friends house ect. whatever you do go buy this game.I am 46 and still playing any Mario game.
Amazing graphic, gameplay, and worlds. Super Marios Bros Wii is perfect. They had done well with the multiplayer. They also have cool powerups thats helpful to the game. Enemies are challenging and coins/lives are crucial. This game is an awesome remake of the ol classic on NES. This is a must have for Mario fans. Not to mention you can ride on Yoshis which is awesome!
Great Game, but Overpriced
Yes I know that this game is great... but it is very pricey. I must say though that if you do buy the game you won't run out of replayability.
