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.
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.
have this game on my ds and i am saving u my money for tis game hope its even better than the one on the ds
Way better than ds. Would give graphics 10 if i wrote this before wii u came out. Im on world 8 now.
WORST GAME EVER
Its the same thing as the old mario bros if you want to save money just go buy the old mario much better than the new one
Pretty fun game
Let me start by saying I'm a kid, so if you want some adult review, look elsewhere. This is an amazing game. The graphics are great, the music is good, it is not very glitchy.(I have only had it glitch once or twice) It is pretty hard, but I'm typically better at super Mario galaxy. It took me 2 years to beat, but I hardly ever played it. The co-op it great, But my little sister just runs as fast as she can through the level and always kills me. (I like to try and explore instead of flying through the level) I'd say it is good for ages 9+.
Hard Game But Awesome
This Game Is Epic I Love It Best Game Ever 2 Percent Of The Reason Is Because I Have It It's Epic Great Gameplay
A Great Game for All
New Super Mario Bros. Wii is a great game for everyone. You don't have to be a "hardcore" gamer to play it. It brings back those feelings from playing Super Nintendo Mario games. Ahh, I remember those days. But anyways, the Nintendo Wii I feel is going to be forgotten, with the Wii U with the new Mario game.
This is a great kid game for wii. I think it is one of my favorite games! I reccommend you buy it!!!
This game is pretty good. The game itself is very fun. Mario, Luigi and blue and yellow toad are the players you play as. You go through 8 worlds and an extra world if you beat the game. This game is fun and exciting.
