Helpful to the Last Exit 29 Nov 2012
By S. Rhodes - Published on Amazon.com
When it comes to 2D side scrolling gamaes a strategy guide almost can't fail in this day and age. And as you might expect, the New Super Mario Bros. U guide does not disappoint. New Super Mario Bros. U is a pretty straightforward game as it is, but all the secrets and goodies might be elusive to some players. This guide will help you find them all.

Let's just jump to the walkthrough. By this point in time all the preliminary basics should be known to just about anyone. You know how to make Mario run and jump. you know about the enemies and you know about the power ups. The only thing that's of any importance, really is the walkthrough. If you're still struggling with the basics, this guide will help but New Super Mario Bros. U is such a straightforward game you'll get by without ever having to read about the controls.

The walkthrough is done just like every other New Super Mario Bros. Guide. Each section begins with a map, usually showing you everything. You'll find out where pipes lead, where Star Coins are and where alternate exits are with no problems whatsoever. The guide uses the same waypoint system that every side scrolling Mario guide has used in the past few years. When you look on the maps you'll usually see a number. When you do, just look at the text below and find your number and it'll tell you what to do. Generally speaking the guide doesn't hold your hand, only giving tips in areas they've found particularly difficult or where secrets lurk. They do call out all the Star Coins in a special manner, however.

The maps are perhaps the most important part. In most cases this is all you need to get by and the guide has walkthroughs for just about every level. Everything you need is here.

In reality, there isn't much I can say here. It's constructed just like the previous New Super Mario Bros. guide. It's straightforward, has detailed maps and gives the tips you'd expect. By this point in time it'd be really hard for any guide company to make a bad guide to New Super Mario Bros. U. It's probably not going to be needed in anyway, but at least for those who are stuck it will help them find everything.

Mario U Aid 26 Nov 2012
By Michael Kerner - Published on Amazon.com
With the hype and drive around the Wii U, and with New Super Mario Brothers U a must have for die hard gamers of all ages, they really need a strong helping hand with getting from Point A to Point B. Prima has shown that well with guides before, and a few mixed bags as well. Their guide for New Super Mario Brothers U handles well, as you see detailed maps for each of the 9 levels and grabbing the elusive star coins, all the way to trying to rescue Peach from the vulgar clutches of Bowser. The guide shows good displays of each of the levels, but it could have shown a bit better at tips at how to control Mario with the Wii U gamepad. It might have been a better plus. But overall, this guide is a definite must have for any Mario fan who wants to make it to the top.
