New Super Mario Bros. U review

Reviewed November 23, 2012

Jason Venter says: "The original Super Mario Bros. games were quick to move from one idea to the next, and certainly it’s easy to see why developers would do the same thing here, but New Super Mario Bros. U does a better job of reminding the player how awesome the franchise has been over the years than it does delivering a new batch of that same old magic."
