New Super Mario Bros (Wii)

 

You better bring your butt-stomping A-game to New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Like the best Mario 2D games of decades past, this game is unashamedly and deliciously challenging. It will even test the most seasoned platforming veterans. And it's not just the...

Multiplayer fun with classic 2d platforming. Too bad Nintendo decided to not really do everything they can with New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Using 2d graphics for NSMBW, Nintendo succeeded on giving that retro feel bringing back fond memories of playing Super Mario Bros. back on the NES. It's far from breaking any new ground graphically, but it does fit the game perfectly. The music also...

Although I love playing videogames, very rarely do I ever pay full price for a game - normally I wait until it has gone down in price at least somewhat. Super Mario Bros. Wii was an exception to that rule, after I heard many great things from all my...

New Super Mario Bros. Wii Review - Frictionless Insight

 

Once again, Princess Peach is in peril. This time, however, Peach's rescuer isn't just Mario. Joining Mario and his brother Luigi in their 2D platforming rescue effort are Yellow Toad and Blue Toad!

(Home)Wrecking Crew

Watching rivalries and alliances unfurl and collapse over the course of a single stage

With four players, the final stage was filled with nothing but weeping, wailing, and the gnashing of teeth

NSMBW isn't unfun. It's uninspired. Like the games that came before it, New Super Mario Bros. Wii evokes concepts and imagery presented in its predecessors. Unlike those games, it makes no effort to expand upon any of those ideas. It falls short of...

Review: New Super Mario Bros. Wii

 

Nostalgia has always been a hit or miss thing with me. Sometimes the best parts of a game aren't articulated well enough in today's gaming world, while others hit the ground running, reminding us how far the video game industry has come. New Super...

Super Mario Bros Wii Review [Wii]

 

Mario is back to his former glory in this 2D side scrolling platform game. The story is much the same as previous Mario games with Princess Peach being captured — again — and it is left up to Mario and friends to save her — again. Seriously what is the...

4 player multiplayer ; Replayable Mini-Games ; Challenging

Needs more save points ; Lack of Motion control features ; No in game points/coin tally in mini games

This 2D side scrolling platform game takes Mario back to a time we thought he had left to go to another galaxy. Now with added multiplayer support!

New Super Mario Bros. for the Wii

 

Those who are fans of the Super Mario Bros. series can rejoice with the release of the New Super Mario Bros for the Wii gaming console. This new edition keeps much of the main ingredients the same that made the game a legend and adds in a few tweaks...

As far as the new additions go, you get two cool suits that can make a huge difference in your gameplay success. The first is the propeller suit, which allows you to propel yourself high into the air and hover to avoid enemies. The second is a...

Game Review: New Super Mario Bros. Wii

 

I was very skeptical about the New Super Mario Bros. Wii. For starters it seemed like the DS game was ported over to the Wii and given a slight visual upgrade. Also when compared to its 3D counterpart (Mario Galaxy) the title seemed very “last gen” to...

Mario returns to his 2D roots in one of the best games the Wii has had to offer in all of 2009.

From the opening title screen to the epic final battle, New Super Mario Bros. Wii has everything a fan of the franchise could ever want. Gaming has changed a lot in the last 18 years and I've often wondered, where have you gone Super Mario? Between the...
