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.

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.

The nice thing about Super Mario games is that anyone can pick it up and play.

I think my best gaming years past with the PS2 but I bought my son a WiiU which was on special so I treated him (read: me) to Super Mario. Never having played the Wii version I found things had come a long way since I last played on the SNES. Crisp clean graphics and sounds, but all the while retaining the pick up an play elements.

I love the new powerups you get to allow mario to perform a variety of unique skills. flying squirel, fire and ice balls and the propeller head. Yoshi also makes an appearance. But its all still good old Mario fun.

The story is similar to the usual.. in this case Bowser and his cronies turn up in an Airship attacks the castle throws Mario and friends across to the other end of the world map. Mario must then work his way across all the worlds (lands) using the help from his various sidekicks to get back to the castle and rescue the princess, defeating various bosses in their Airship along the way.

I wonder if I had a Wii version of this if I would have still plumped the cash for the Wii U version. As it is its a good game, even sweeter if you can get it for less than the RRP by shopping around. I think I saw it as low as £30 here on Amazon.

Oh and before I forget the co-op mode is good if probably under advertised.. and I love the fact you can play the game on the controller screen. This means I don't even need to steal the TV from teh kids when I want to play :-) WinWin

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.

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.
