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!

Amazing family fun addictive me and my wife haven't played a game this fun with our family in well a looong time... my ONLY complaint is
I wish you could turn off character collision for when the young ones are playing cause that is fun but it adds a whole new level of toughness when doing levels with moving floating rotating platforms in the air and dungeons.. Do not get me wrong i like it but i wish you could turn it off to make it easier for the children when they are actually trying to complete it and not just goof off and through each other into bad guys..
Bottom line I after 2 hours of play i ran out to Bestbuy and purchased this game for myself.. its a timeless classic made better and will be its own timeless classic in the years to come!

New Super Mario Bros. Wii is my 2nd favorite game for the Wii. This game is fun to play and looks good. The levels are different and the coins that you need to find in all the levels makes it so you'll have to keep coming back!
Story: if you're looking for some really awesome story from a Mario game then either A: you've never played Mario before; or B: you're just weird. Once again Bowser kidnaps the Princess and Mario and Luigi with help from two Toads, have to save the day.
Gameplay: this game returns to its classic side-scrolling adventure that Mario fans know and love. It has new power-ups including the helicopter hat and penguin suit each with there own little benefits. Penguin suit allows you to go on ice with out sliding and also swim much easier and shoot ice balls to freeze your enemies in there tracks making this power-up (in my opinion) the most useful of them all. The Helicopter hat allows you to take to the skies! with a quick shake of the Wii-mote you go up,up and away! This is great for those who are beginners to the platform hopping action; its also tons of fun to play with. The ice flower is kinda pointless. All it does is shoot ice balls just like the penguin suit- but that's it. The multi-player is what makes the game chaotic because it is rather easy to "accidentally" kill your teammates. This is bound to happen unless you want to spend HOURS tying to jump through these tricky platforms one by one because they're to small for both to stand on. Of course you could just put yourself in a bubble and let the more skilled player get past this difficult spot, but what fun is that. Multi-player is the best part of the game! The game is challenging but not to an extreme that you will never get past certain levels.
Summary: Great! fun, chaotic, great to play with a friend(s), and best game on the Wii (in my opinion)!
