A little harder, but just as fun!

If you've already played New Super Mario Bros U then you probably wont find anything new in this game, but if you haven't and if you're looking for a Mario game that's a little more challenging then this is probably the better choice.
The levels are a little shorter and you only have 100 seconds to clear each level but don't let it discourage you. When considering how more challenging they are they are just the right length.
In multiplayer mode you can play as a new character called "Nabbit", with Nabbit you cannot die from enemies although you can still die when falling into pits and gaps. This character makes it easier for a younger or much more less experienced gamer to join in without ruining it for the other players. You can use your old Wii motes, your game pad and classic pro controllers to play multiplayer, so you wont need more gamepdas or anything. Up to 5 players they say! Maybe even mum and dad could have a go?
Overall the game looks nice, clear and colourful graphics. What you'd expect from a Nintendo game. Controls are good, but remember that Luigi is supposed to be slippery compared to his brother Mario. Obviously though, the other characters in multiplayer wont be as slippery. What's better about Luigi is that he can jump higher. ( You can reach the top of that flag pole without much effort! )
Remember if you already own New Super Mario Bros U you can go right a head and download this game as an add-on from the eShop at cheaper price. ( Digitally. ) You buy this retail ver if you DON'T own the previous game and only want this one!
