    The best thing about this is that we finally get to see Mario in glorious HD; regardless of it being a solid game.

    The "new" in the name is pretty much redundant as of now, presented here is what we were all introduced in the Nintendo DS glory days of 2006. Ever since that DS game 2D Mario has been a constant for Nintendo. There's no... Read Full Review

    Mario 2D (and Luigi) in HD!

    The visuals in NSMBU almost make up for the fact that this is the same tried and true 2D Mario formula. The game tries a few new ideas that work for the most part, and at least it doesn't any gimmick like the coins in th... Read Full Review

    Same old, same old but the Luigi DLC makes up for it.

    What else can I say about New Super Mario Bros that hasn't been said already? The DS version was great. The Wii version was pretty damn good. The 3DS sequel was easily the weakest. This one, while not as bad as the 3... Read Full Review

    A Familiar but Good entry to the Franchise

    New Super Mario Bros U is a very familiar entry to the Mario bros lineup but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The Visuals On the Wii U for SMB U look beautiful in HD, all of the worlds look vibrant and everything is c... Read Full Review

    New Super Mario Bros. U plays it fairly safe

    As usual, Bowser has captured the Princess, but this time he has taken over her own castle! Mario must travel the lands, defeating Bowser's minions as he goes in order to get back to the castle and save the day. Graphic... Read Full Review

    Brings back the challenge from the older Mario games without the Mario!

    The year of Luigi has been good to me and I bet a lot of other people out there feel the same way, but it’s also been good to the Mario series as a whole. While I wasn’t particularly interested in the New Sup... Read Full Review

    It'd be alright if it wasn't Mario 3 again, just like last time.

    Boros here, after too much damned laziness, and after my aquiring of a Wii U, I can finally start reviewing again, and what better way to restart my year of reviewing than with New Super Mari... F@%K! How many of these ... Read Full Review

    Back to the Roots

    Yes, I played every single Sidescrolling Mario title from the last two decades (except the handheld games), but i am still not getting tired of them. This release, the first Mario game in HD, still feels fresh and shows ... Read Full Review
