Super Mario Delivers

New Super Mario Bros 2 is a great new addition to the Nintendo collection. Whether you are a newcomer to Super Mario or a veteran the game provides an enjoyable and suitably difficult experience. The controls carry the polish, control and precision necessary for a strong platformer. While the game does incorporate many of the features which have made the Super Mario games one of the most acclaimed and respected series, it fails to deliver on any meaningful changes to the formula. Keeping track of the coins earned throughout the game is an interesting feature. However the extreme ease with which lives can be gained from these coins truly takes much of the challenge from the experience. As a whole the game is an enjoyable handheld homage to it's predecessors, but fails to provide the depth or flare which made them so memorable.
