This game is amazing! It is a new Mario game with the old style side scrolling Mario gameplay! If you loved the old Mario games then you will love this game!

Pros:
Oldschool side scrolling Mario style
Tons of levels
Many things to collect
Nice music

Cons:
Controls a little different than other oldschool Mario games. Takes a couple of levels to get used to.

Graphics: 10/10
Sound:
Music: 10/10
Sounds: 10/10
Gameplay: 10/10
Controls: 9/10
Replay Value: 9/10

Overall: 9/10

You may want to take my brief review with a grain of salt since, despite being semi-obsessed with video games, they constantly disappoint me, and even those I like best I consider to have serious flaws and weaknesses. Okay then…
after 8 billion mario games i've suddenly had to come to the painful realization that, this treasured franchise, spanning multiple genres and sporting amazing production values, produces game after game that i, well, dont like. new super mario brothers is perhaps my least favorite of them all. for one thing its the sort of game that garners lots of complaints about being too easy but that i find tediously difficult (besides never having difficulty levels of any kind in their games they are the sort of games that if you play well you tend to be mildly rewarded with things that make it easier but if you play poorly you tend to be up against the wall all the time). people also might comment on the standard perfunctory story of this game but i feel it would be more fair to say it doesnt actually have one. what else, i don't know, it's a side scroller where you jump on peoples heads. it tends to be cleverly designed and if you liked mario games in the past i don't know why you wouldn't like this. if you've never tried one you sort of have to. but as for me i sort of hated this game.
