    The weakest 2D Mario game I have played

    Rated on August 19, 2012 by chocolate1325

    After Super Mario World came out in 1991 we had to wait over 15 years for a 2D side scrolling Mario game which came in the form of New Super Mario Bros which was nice it had good level design and mini...

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 might have a limited lasting value, but the perfect controls and nostalgia make it a must buy.

    It's been a few years since we seen a two dimensional Mario game being released in stores. In 2009, New Super Mario Bros. Wii featured up to four player multiplayer action, and had some interesting po...

    Most of us have 'been there, done that' with NSMB2, but even so, Nintendo still knows how to make quality games.

    Pretty much the same kind of platforming you will find in any Mario side-scroller, but this time is all about the coins.

    It's the same old Mario, only with a lot more coins!

    Rated on August 26, 2012 by JustPlainLucas

    In 2006, there was New Super Mario Bros. In 2009, there was New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Now in 2012, there's New Super Mario Bros. 2. Confused? Well, you should be because later this year, there wi...

    It's still a solid title but plays it too safe.

    This game has sort of come under fire. Mario taking a bit of flack for "going through the motions" and the reason this game exists is because the previous two 2D Marios both for the DS and Wii respe...

    New Super Mario Bros 2 is a great game for your 3ds collection. It has all of the stuff you love from Super Mario - the jumping, the stomping, powerups, baddies - it's all great. The controls are v...

    Wow. Total rehash of NSMB Wii. Miyamoto and the rest of the Mario crew at Nintendo are running outta ideas.

    Rated on September 28, 2012 by Ricecrispies95

    The game's a total rehash for god's sake! It did not live up to my expectations a bit. Same level design and the music is identical to New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and there is nothing really new. The o...
