After what seemed like forever, Mario is finally back to 2D Platforming.

Gameplay: New Super Mario Bros. is a mix of old and new. Brand new worlds, powerups (like the mega/mini mushroom), etc, but it still feels like a classic 2d Mario Game. When you're done with the main single player story, theres a great selection of minigames and you can even battle your friends over wi-fi.
Graphics: New Super Mario Bros. Graphics are different from the other 2D Mario platformers in that this is the first one to feature 3D (or 2.5D, whatever you want to call it) graphics. Mario and the world around him look suprisingly good.
Sound: Like the gameplay, the sound features a mix of new music and old sound effects. Depending on what time you beat a stage in the game, it will play the classical Mario Bros. 1 "Stage Clear" music.
Value: After beating the main game, you might get bored of the minigames after awhile, but there's always multiplayer battle mode.
Overall: New Super Mario Bros. is a must-have title if you are a true Mario fan. I hope Nintendo continues this "New" Mario series in the future.
