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.
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
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.
And the graphics. They are glorious.Read more ›
