New Super Mario Bros. review

Reviewed June 29, 2006

Branden Barrett says: "There is one particular thought that you should dismiss from your mind before reading a review or perhaps even going out to purchase this game. And that is, do not expect this to be along the same monumental line as Super Mario 64, Super Mario World, or even the first game Mario appeared on for that matter. Think of Mario’s latest venture as more of an anthology of sorts; an assemblage of positive features from his best games, spanning over the last twenty years. "

Jason Venter says: "I knew better than to hope for a DS game that could capture all of that for me again. Nostalgia sets unrealistic expectations.

Albeit, a bit dated, the original Super Mario Bros. is fun at its purest form. While Nintendo followed it up with a slightly disappointed sequel, it was still more tha..."

ghostyghost says: "Everyone’s favorite hero, Mario, returns to his plumbing roots in New Super Mario Bros, essentially a more detailed look at the 1985 classic, Super Mario Bros. Despite being showcased in Super Mario Strikers and Mario Baseball, NSMB shows that Mario still can be the perfect piece in an excellent side scrolling adventure, and it brings a simple control scheme that allows for crazy level design. The plot and some of the environments from Super Mario Bros are re-used, but the game is significantly ..."

Reviewed January 03, 2010

Halon says: "With most modern games choosing to focus on today’s big trends, the occasional nostalgic title is (ironically) a breath of fresh air. It feels refreshing to have something that is not concerned with wowing you with cinematic presentation, providing a deep, complex story, and whatever other ideas and gimmicks the big games of today might contain.
