"Disappointing."on by jsthorpe
Pros The visuals are exactly what you'd expect, presentation is flawless. Nintendo clearly wanted to continue where it left off with the traditional Mario platform series.
Cons Not enough room here to explain why I don't like this game. Move on to the summary.
Summary The controls are truly shocking. why bother to even try to implement "classic" controls and then introduce using the Wii Remote's movement functions, something completely alien to the Mario platform world? Game physics - character movement is innacurate and slow, leaving you with a sensation that you have to anticipate your character's movement ahead of time. It may be realistic, but its totally out of place! The ever-present timer in the top right of the screen only makes this situation worse. I felt the entire game was disappointing and not much fun at all. The difficulty of the levels is probably about right, but I found myself lacking the patience to put up with the appalling control methods... this extends to the map screens too. I got very frustrated with this game, despite giving it more than enough chances... its not at all what I expected from Nintendo. Definitely could do better, especially to justify the price tag. Such a shame as I really wanted this game to be brilliant.
Pros Great graphics
Cons extremly hard to beat or even play
bad freestyle mode
Summary New Super Mario Bros Wii:
In this e rated game, our famous Mario characters as well as new ones sprout to life. The graphics and storyline are amazing, as well as other super Mario bros games, but it was extremely hard to beat World 1! If you lose your life you go straight back to stage 1 on whatever stage you're on. You need to be good at thinking and strategy games to do this one. The only freestyle mode you could possibly do one player is by going on 2 player and making player 2 stand still and you just play... now how fun is that?
Pros - Great structure
- Platform stages have good graphics
- Easy to get to grips with
- Sustains long term interest
Cons - Perhaps something more to unlock or personalize your nintendo character etc.
Pros Fun mutiplayer, Retro-gaming, FUN FUN FUN!!
Cons No online wi-fi.
Summary It's all the classic fun from Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario World, put together!!
Pros This game does exactly what it was meant to do and that is to make a newer fresh version of the Super Mario Bros you played on your older system 5-10+ years ago.
Cons The only negative I have is the fact that it can become repetitive, but what game doesn't at one point.
Summary The bottom line is that this game is a great buy and I would recommend it to anyone who like the original Super Mario Bros games.
