I realize Mario has a legacy and everything, but I really couldn't get into this one. Same old thing, only this time in barely noticeable HD. Same level designs: desert, fire castles for boss fights, etc. It's amazing how they can keep on repackaging the same game 100 times. People complain about Call of Duty and Pokemon. A least Call of Duty gives you a new story every time with updated multiplayer and Pokemon gives you 100 new creatures and a new land to explore. Mario Bros gives new levels that will only be distinguishable from ones in past entries of the series if you've played through them dozens of times and spent the time learning all of their secrets. It's really getting old, legacy or not.
And it's a stupid idea to make us repeat three levels if we lose all of our lives in the boss fight levels. It doesn't increase the difficulty, it's just tedious. It feels like it's just there to pad out the length of the game.
well first of all i would like to say that I LOVE THIS GAME the graphics are amazing there is finally a really good background in the levels and also i would like to say that i love the new baby yoshi they are so cute and they are really helpful in the levels especially the pink baby yoshi wich if you shake tthe wii remote or press zr in the wii u gamepad they turn into big cute ballon yoshi wich can float until they run out of air and also the new power up the acorn is pretty much a tonooki suit except that you can shake the wii remote or press zr on the wii u gamepad to go up a bit and this helped me out a lot in gameplay i can actually beat the firs castle in just 2 minutes with the acorn suit now back to the graphics warning spoilers coming up but in the final battle with bowser bowser actually looks like a reptile he has scales and the texture to the skin you could tell that his skin is rough the challenge mode is good the boost mode is good as well so now the rating in a scale from 1 to 10 i would give it a ten so this pretty much wraps up my review of new super mario bros u
