This review is from: Super Princess Peach (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Princess Peach, the annoying princess of mushroom kingdom allowing herself (instead of just running lol)to get captured by Bowser in every Mario game since 1985, finally gets her own game for the DS entitled 'Super Princess Peach'. The premise of the game is just like any other Mario game but in reverse Peach as our protagonist rescuing the Mario Bros from an army of Hammer Brothers. With the aid of her trusty parasol Perry and her 'emotions' she sets off through 8 levels to rescue the boys. The game itself starts of pretty basic the Vibe Scepter is the newest additional 'power' using her emotions to aid her (Calm,Gloom,Rage & Joy) which are pretty entertaining and turn out to be very useful. The controls are very easy to grasp, if you have never played a Mario game before (where have u been!) you'll pick it up in less than a minute, it's just that simple. The only thing i found a bit annoying with the game is once you get to Bowser's castle you have to backtrack and get all the Toads that you missed which can get pretty frustrating. The bonuses on the game aren't too bad Toad Jump you have to blow into the mic to make him jump which is pretty cool, Toad Tote involves using the stylus to navigate Toad through a maze of fire and Toad Shot requires you to tap the screen to defeat the various enemies, The first seven levels for each game are buyable at the shop, but the last three levels are hidden in the levels. Eight puzzles are also featured. A few of the pieces are buyable at the shop, but most of them are hidden throughout the worlds. After the pieces are found, it becomes a minigame which i havent got them all i fount it pretty tricky finding all the pieces.
So overall the game is pretty good and longer than you expect don't let the cutesy graphics and the fact that it's Princess Peach put you off it plays just like any other Mario game but with a twist i recommend it highly one of my favourite DS games so far.
