5.0 out of 5 stars Wow... 6 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mario in HD is something everybody needs to experience. This game is crisp, beautiful and vibrant in colour and graphics. Gameplay is divided into challenge type mini games that include speed runs (very fun - and I find helps improve your gameplay ability) and the regular story mode. It's worth noting that even after all these years, and using the same foes Nintendo continues to provide unique level design. The real beauty of this game (and those before it) is the level of difficulty. It walks a fine line between being easy for a beginner who takes their time, and being quite difficulty for a veteran who wants to get through levels very quickly and with all coins/not being hit. Simply brilliant game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded my Expectations! 12 Dec. 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was rather sceptical about this game since so many reviews and blogs stated it was just another re-hash of the former NSMB for the Wii. Since I love all Mario games I still got it (expecting to enjoy it but still feel bugged about all the supposed 'drawkbacks' people were talking about).

My mind was soon changed and I was completely captivated by the crisp, beautiful graphics of this game. I'm still not quite over my initial surprise. The small videos throughout the game are a great addition and the background scenery to the stage really makes you feel like your in a BIG world compared to the former game. There are many nostalgic touches like the return of baby yoshis - which are just awesome - and boom boom as well.

There are a lot more new things in this game compared with the wii version such as the titles for each level, the world map, the videos throughout the game, yoshi abilities, different challenge modes, squirrel suit - the list just goes on. The twist in the storyline actually makes a big difference in my opinion.

So far, this games has just been pure enjoyment and bliss - I go into my own content world when I play it, the stages are extremely captivating and engaging. I'm enjoying the music as well.

I don't think this game needs to be compared with NSMB Wii because this just blows it off the scale!

If your thinking about getting this game, I wouldn't hesitate in buying it, despite what more picky people may say about it.

New Super Mario Bros. U is a new, side-scrolling adventure featuring Mario, Luigi, Toad ... and your Mii character! Now's your chance to step inside the Mushroom Kingdom and explore new worlds, new power-ups and new ways to play. Up to five players can jump into the fun, with up to four people using Wii Remote controllers and one on the Wii U GamePad. The experience is different, depending on which controller is used.

It’s difficult to find freshness or brilliance in a 2D landscape. Mario’s world is now three decades old. That would seem to suggest new territory is scarce, and in some ways the formulaic New Mario series had come to reinforce that fear. But New Super Mario Bros. U demonstrates there’s not just life left in this type of game, but that it can be modern and nostalgic at the same time.

Nintendo’s approach here strikes a great balance in all areas, ranging from its difficulty to design to enemies and bosses. And for everything the basic Story Mode does right – and that’s a considerable amount – the Challenge Mode will be remembered as a key moment in the life of the New Mario series, where Nintendo realized it didn’t have to sacrifice the core gamer’s experience at the expense of a more casual audience. This is how Mario can and will appeal to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has everything a Mario game should ... 27 Nov. 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
FINALLY! Super Mario in HD, the first thing that hits you about the game is how bright and beautiful everything looks, The game is everything you'd expect a Mario game to be to be honest, we expect high standards and Nintendo deliver. The game is a little more challenging than some of the previous Mario games but still pretty easy 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Mario adventure for all the family! 7 Jan. 2015
By Suchet
This is an awesome Mario game hugely challenging and fun for the entire family.. It also bright back many memories of my youth playing games like SUPER MARIO WORLD on the Super Nintendo.

The great thing about this game is that's it fits all age groups and the controls are simple to learn and you can have upto 5 people playing in the living room. The Amazon price is amazing considering the huge value of the game.

Also the graphics are in crisp HD and the animation is superb. If you have a WiiU then you must get this!

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful bundle of platforming joy 26 Dec. 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Control. Precise, responsive and unmitigated control over Mario is the fundamental ingredient which makes New Super Mario Bros U the best launch title on the Wii U and an excellent game in its own right. As you navigate the various worlds of the game and attempt to capture the perilously located star coins dotted about each stage, it is your ability as a player to shape Mario's movements exactly as you want - that is, as recklessly or as cautiously as you want, depending on your playstyle - which makes the game a breathtaking experience as you narrowly escape death due to a well timed running jump which if you had pulled off a millisecond later (or perhaps earlier) would have resulted in a game over screen. In this respect every success empowers you, knowing it has been fought for by your own skill and rapid reactions, whereas every failure compels you to pick yourself back up and try again knowing that your death was not because of cheap level design or unresponsive controls (two pitfalls which so many platformers fall into) but because you simply were not good enough or sharp enough on that particular occasion. But you will be, next time. In this respect the game's difficulty is perfectly pitched, challenging enough that you will certainly fail numerous times especially as you go after those pesky star coins, but not so difficult that you feel the task ahead is insurmountable. And thus, because of this finely tuned balance, New Super Mario Bros U keeps you coming back.

And the graphics. They are glorious.
