Puts the ds version down the drain! (please read this),
A Kid's Review
This review is from: New Super Mario Brothers (Wii) (Video Game)
18 years it's been since a proper 2-d scroller! And now mario makes his way back to rule the living room.
I won't make this to long!
Straight to the point! The first thing you will notice when you play this game is it's charming new look. Playing it on a big telly will add to the amazement. Older gamers will be happy to know that everything from the origanal mario bros. is still here! The music is in-geneous, It is a remix from the ds version. The new multiplayer is excellent! And if all this still isn't enough, the levels are completly new and never played before!
This is all a bit overwhelming if you are a parent thinking of buying it for a child for christmas. So i will do what I always do sum it up in points.
1. fun for everyone (even parents!)
2. great to play for a party
3. new gameplay is excellent
4. controlls are as simple as beans on toast
5. kids will, I repeat will love it!!!
6. game lasts for ages
7. ideal christmas/birthday gift
8. multiplayer and i will say it again is excellent
9. Starts easy ends as hard as nails
11.timeless mario magic present
12.GAME OF THE YEAR!!
uh oh.. BAD points
1. Yes you can ride on yoshi but it's limeted
2. as the game gets harder, yes there will be cursing going on.
3. is it a bit to hard for young kids?
4. the mega mushroom is missing...
5. can be a tad frustrating at times
Overall though an outstanding game for people aged 3-infinite. Ideal for x-mas and don't hesitate to comment on the review. I will awnser any questions.

My five year old has asked for this game for Xmas - does he need to buy any extra wii accessories to play it. We literally have two wii remotes and a nunchuck. Will we need anything else for Super Mario Bros?

My four year old loves it, it is the first game he has played and isn't very good but he tries.

Hi I would just like to say that my four year old daughter finds this game far to hard but loves playing Mario Kart Wii which she finds alot easier to play. Wii Sports Resort and Boom Blox Bash Party are two other games which she is able to play well. I think you need to be at least seven years old to be able to play New Super Mario Bros. Wii because it is a tricky platform game which requires very good coordination skills. I hope this helps other parents out and I rate this one of the best games to come out on the Wii this year if not the best because I have been a Mario fan since the NES days in the late 80's.

I want to buy a Wii for the sole purpose of playing Super Mario (initially). We want 3 of us to be able to play at the same time - what remotes do I need - Iseen remote controllers, motion sensors and nunchucks listed but not really sure ?!?! Please can you advise which 3 remotes I would need. Thx a million.

Hi bronwyn, you will only need 3 normal Wii Remotes to play "New Super Mario Bros. Wii" with your family or friends that you play with with. I did review this game under my nick name Dragonlord and love it!

Thx. Still saving but hope to get one soon !! there is no point just getting the console first - need to get mario and 3 remotes at same time. Appreciate your help.

Your most welcome and I hope you enjoy the game when you have also got yourself a Wii too.
