As the first of the traditional side-scrolling Mario games to be developed specifically for Nintendo 3DS and 2DS, gamers will find a great mix of the familiar and the not so familiar when they play New Super Mario Bros. 2.

Available now to buy or download, New Super Mario Bros. 2 comes packed with more than 80 brand new courses which are stacked with all sorts of secrets and hidden surprises to discover. At first glance, it's classic Mario platform action, but there are also some major differences to look out for, like the opportunity to collect an incredible one million coins for the first time ever!

But the gold rush doesn't end there, as there are three all-new gold-themed elements that will help you out throughout the game. The first of these is the Gold Flower power-up, which sees Mario become the amazing Gold Mario. Not only does this transformation allow you to shoot Gold Fireballs at enemies and blocks, it will also mean you can turn them into valuable coins. In addition, if you're quick enough, you'll also get the chance to turn 10-Coin Blocks into special Gold Blocks, which can then be worn over Mario's head to collect a steady stream of coins as he runs before the power runs out. The third option for collecting coins will come when you spot a Gold Ring on a course. You'll need to be skilful enough to jump through it, but when you do you'll see all your enemies turn to gold – then all you need to do is collect the additional coins they produce in their own unique way.

Players of New Super Mario Bros. 2 will also be glad to hear that the game has retained some of the more classic elements of the franchise that have made it so popular over the years. This includes the Super Leaf power-up which changes Mario into fan-favourite Raccoon Mario and lets our hero float in mid-air attack, block enemies with a tail swipe, and fly for brief periods of time.

But there are plenty of new challenges and features to enjoy, too. For example, New Super Mario Bros. 2 lets you complete the entire adventure in co-operative mode, so you and a friend can team up to rescue the princess as Mario and Luigi (as long as you each have a Nintendo 3DS system and copy of the game). There are even three special moves to master in co-op mode that will help you as you take on each of the courses together. Coins that are racked up in this mode will count for both of you, so why not see if you can get a friend to help you reach that big one million target?

Other new features include Coin Rush mode. This challenges you to collect as many coins as possible, but without failing once. This mode will really get your competitive juices flowing, as it selects three random courses for you to attack and only gives you one Mario to do it in. You can then store and share the results with others via StreetPass and pick up scores to try and beat. These collaborative and competitive fixtures of New Super Mario Bros. 2 will keep you coming back for more, even after you've managed to rescue Princess Peach!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but great? 25 Aug 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you haven't heard of Mario, you have been seriously deprived or living as a caveman for the past 25, or so, years.
I don't need to mention the story, because you already know it.
Obviously, Mario is not a game about dramatic plot twists and epic story lines.
But, it is damn fun and has kept Nintendo in business (as well as Zelda and Prof. Layton).
I don't know how long they can keep doing what they do.
Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Super Mario Bros. etc... On each console.
But for now, it works and it keeps me buying their stuff.
On a side note, I also have an Xbox 360.

Anyway.. The game is good, but nothing you've not already seen.
Anyone who likes Mario should like this, but some may find it disappointing because there's nothing really 'new' about it.
A lot of reviews already point out the problems with the game, so here's a summary:

- It's pretty short, depending on how you play the game
- Still has no online co-op/multiplayer. Nintendo are lagging behind with this, always
- You have FAR TOO MANY lives and don't have the worry of seeing a game-over screen, which can make gamers feel determined to carry on playing
- It seems like Nintendo have tried too hard to make a game easy enough for kids
- The boss battles are pretty much a joke to be honest
- Toad houses offer nearly nothing... Apart from power ups you easily get during levels, and More damn lives!
- The coin thing is a bit ridiculous. The new powers ups are fairly fun, I suppose, but is it worth trying to find 1 million coins? I personally don't know the 'reward' for doing this, apart from wasting some precious time
- The 3D is rubbish and you end up turning it off. After Super Mario 3D land, this is very disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old Super Mario Bros. 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed, 'New Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo DS)' for the Nintendo DS. The single player is good fun, with the familiar gameplay that is seen throughout similar past games in this series. However, this was the first time 3D and 2D elements were used in the series, which made it stand out more. It also has a fantastic multiplayer element to it, featuring a wide variety of fun mini-games, with the addition of a two-player Mario Vs. Luigi game, where players need to collect the most amount of stars in a given time limit across a selection of levels.

'New Super Mario Bros: 2' for the Nintendo 3DS is a step backwards. The gameplay stays the same, which I suppose is to be expected but for me, I wanted something more. Something that I could say, "Yes, this is an improvement on the first game." However, this never came through. There is no multiplayer section, no fun mini-games to play with friends; just a single player coin rush mode - which to obtain additional courses you mostly have to purchase them separately! If you've spent thirty pounds on a game, then I believe you should not have to purchase additional content that could have easily been put on the game, when it was first released.

I recommend renting this game, and if you want a better experience then I can highly recommend, 'New Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo DS)' for the Nintendo DS.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun Mario game! 21 Sep 2014
I bought this for my 5 year old daughter who recently started playing the 3ds. I have to say we both found this game a lot of fun. The music is very catchy and I particularly enjoyed the new features such as the new power ups, Gold Mario, and the incentive to collect the 3 special coins per level. My daughter enjoys using them to unlock the Toad houses that give various special items and extra lives. Yes, the game is a bit short, we completed it in a day, but we enjoyed completing it and playing it over again to unlock the extra worlds. I would recommend this to people with children as there is little reading if they are slightly younger and it is very easy to play.

2.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat of a disappointment 20 Aug 2012
(DISCLAIMER: This review was originally posted in 2012, but got deleted somehow. This is a repost of my review that I wrote on Amazon from back when this game came out.)

Super Mario: the name alone sends shivers of joy down gamers spines. Nintendo, in it’s long and interesting history, has never made a bad Mario game. Each entry into the franchise brings new, intuitive and original ideas; implements them flawlessly and crafts a platforming masterpiece, whilst still retaining that classic, untampered touch to the Super Mario formula that we all know and love.

After treating gamers with the brilliant ‘Super Mario: 3D Land’ in the November of 2011, less than a year later Nintendo announced another Mario game releasing in the summer of 2012. When the first screenshots were leaked, gamers wet their pants. “a side scrolling Mario game for the 3DS? AND the inclusion of the raccoon suit?!” It seemed too good for a full scepticism of any sort.

Alas it was true. A triumphant return to classic 2D Mario platforming was the way to go. Getting my hands on a copy the day it came out was incredible..no, in fact, words couldn’t describe my excitement. The yellow case, the funky cover, I was all over it. That was, until I got home and played it. Or, should I say, completed it.

My disappointment far outweighed my love for the Mario series. Simply put, as a platformer, it was solid fun, as a Mario game however, it was stale, underdeveloped, unengaging and far too easy. Allow me to explain.

The story is the usual. Bowser kidnaps peach, Mario goes out to save her. End of.
