This what makes me glad I kept my Wii and why I loved nintendo all along. I loved mario when I was a kid and this is just classic 2-D mario. No 3D mario, No collecting eight coins to open up another world, just go to world 1-1 to the castle beat a bower kin and move on. This is kind of Mario 1, 3 and Super Mario World combined. You have the classic Mario 1 Power ups, Mario three and Four esque memorbolia (The Koopa Kids, and Yoshi). Mario can fly once again but instead of a cape or racoon tail you have a beany propeller and now ice flowers that freeze your enimies or fire flower that burns them to a crisp. Yoshi is great because he can hover for 1.5 seconds. The Koopa Troopers are back and you can jump on them pick up their shells and use as a weapon and they dance to the background music from time to time which is kinda cute in a Mario type of way. Straight from mario three you have the mushroom houses to pick out prizes (Extra Power Ups) that you can save in the main menu and use anytime. All and All this game is a must own basically for the fact that this is a classic mario game, you just take the Wii remote hold it sideways and run jump, power up, ride Yoshi, beat a Koopa Child and repeat. I just don't why they keep pushing Bowser Jr. so much cannot get into him.

Truly a blast from the past. All the levels resemble the originals but with a modern twist. The multi-player option was fun but a tad difficult at some points. It's a nice extra that you can "bubble" one player when it gets tough. (by pressing the A button with the player you want to bubble) The whole family enjoyed it. Myself 27, my husband 34, my sons 11, 9, 4 and my daughter 3!

Back to the old gaming board. New Super Mario Bros Wii is a mix of all the old sidescrollers, Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 2, Super Mario Bros 3, and Super Mario World. Well as you probably guesses, its the same old story, Bowser kiddnapps Princess Peach and he sends out his kids to do away with the bros. Same old story, Again. This will be the koopalings ( The original 7) first 3D adventure so if the look a little diffrent, thats why. And with new multi-player additions, where ever you are we will be playing together, so lets say it together. HERE WE GO!
