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

By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 May 2013
Nintendo's decision to reboot side-scrolling adventures for Super Mario has, by all accounts, been an unprecedented success. While sales and reviews back this up, what makes it all the more interesting is that New Super Mario Bros for the Wii was little more than the original 1985 release updated with some new ideas. The real genius, however, is that the new game was designed around a family and friend atmosphere, making it easy to just pick up a Wii remote and follow the leader.

So you may be thinking that New Super Mario Bros U is much of the same. Well, it's not... It's even better!

That's a difficult feat in itself, but this latest release for the Wii U feels so polished that it should have been the original 'New' Super Mario Bros. The story is of course nothing new; Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad are all gorging themselves in a castle when, suddenly, Bowser and family hold the hapless princess captive. If by now you're wondering why Peach isn't just tied to the ground, then bear in mind that Nintendo has been using this plot device for almost 30 years. Even James Bond has defied ageing and heavy drinking for longer than that.

The familiarity doesn't end here, because the entire game takes cues from some of Mario greatest adventures. If like myself you grew up with a NES and SNES console, then you will recognise how particular enemies are carried over from Super Mario Bros 3, the continuation of the level 'map' from Super Mario World, and all manner of other small hints to past games. The game never feels repetitive however, it's actually very refreshing to encounter all the old memories once more.
