With the big success of the game Super Mario Brothes on the WiiU, there was going to be a sequel.
Well, sort of.
In New Super Luigi U, you get 80 more levels that feel like the original levels shrunk down by at least half.
And with good reason, too. Your time limit is 100 seconds per level – and another 100 seconds for the boss fights. The game will take much less time to get through than the original – which is probably why they put a $20 price tag on this game.
But what’s also clear is the jumps in this game are just as hard as the original – or even tougher. Even with the addition of Nabbit – the guy who can’t be defeated by other enemies – it may be a tough time getting through those jumps. This game can get so frustrating that some players will end up throwing their controllers at the screen.
New Super Luigi U is one game that beginners should not try – until after they spend some time with the original Super Mario Brothers U game.
But if you just want more of Super Mario Brothers U, then this is your game. More levels, more multiplayer mayhem (there are up to five characters on screen at the same time instead of the four in the original), and the same great powerups that were in the original are on display here – just in a speeded up version.
New Super Luigi U is one game that a definite rent – and fans of the genre should have little trouble paying up the $20 to buy the game.
I should have read the description, however I did not. Luigi U is unplayable for me simply because of Luigi's slippery floaty control. Talk about taking it back to Super Mario Bros. 2. At least the floaty control worked in that setting. In a speedy, precise platforming game such as this, the floaty game play mechanic kills this game for me. Other wise I'm sure this is a great stripped down version of Mario U bonus stages that are unplayable for me. How about a fresh new platforming game for Luigi.
