New Super Mario Bros. U

 

New Super Mario Bros. U is a very well designed game, and is perhaps one of the best Mario experiences to come along as of late. The multiplayer capabilities are where the game is at its strongest, but there is still plenty of fun to be had playing...

New Super Mario Bros. U

 

Mario is like a rock, steady and unchanging. Princess Peach will always find herself in the grasp of Bowser, a villain who has yet to write a single ransom note. Once again it is up to Mario, Luigi, and two generic Toads to hop and stomp their way...

The New Super Mario Bros series was never one to defy expectations, but rather build upon years of refined nostalgia. New Super Mario Bros. U is formulaic Mario and is a delightfully fun time for it.

New Super Mario Bros. U Review: Nintendo's Safe Bet

 

The latest entry in the Mario series doesn't rewrite the platformer playbook, but still takes incremental steps forward.

You need to understand right up front that New Super Mario Bros. U follows a deliberate style of video game design. It takes players on a tour through all the well-known Mario tropes, but it also tinkers with a few ideas along the way. Naturally, the...

New Super Mario Bros. U review: A return to form

 

Super Mario World ruined me. Ever since it was released in 1991, I've been waiting for Nintendo to top it, to one up its brilliant levels, wonderful music and sheer creativity. Don't get me wrong, the 3D Mario games are great, but I grew up with 2D...
