the game play is awesome and with the new items you can unlock tons of secrets. the bad parts of this game is that it is too short, the levdels can be finished in a minute or so and the game itself only has 8 worlds and you dont have to go to 2 of them. the bosses are too easy and the game play starts easy and then once you reach near the end of the game it gets extremely difficult first timers of the mario games should replay levels several times to get a feel for the controls before they take on the harder levels.
I love what I call Old School Mario, and that's what this game is!I also love the old school music. You can go to funny junk com and look for the video Mario Twins for a funny version of the song but I don't think the begining of the song good for young children. I gave the game a 9 because it's awesome and I've never given a game a 10 ever since Resident Evil 4. I recomend this game to everyone and anyone. Also check the polls on Cheat Code Central because they had a bunch of polls asking what you would do. Also look up some tips and cheats. This is another report from the DJ Gamer.
Mario is back in this DS new version of super mario brothers. Now don't be fooled this is not the original version, it has the same feel and pace of the original while throwing in alot of new aspects. The mega and mini mushrooms are a delight to see altough they dont happen very often. The goombas, koopas, and everyones favorite baddy Bowser are back and in this non stop Mario adventure their out for vengence. The downside is this is a VERY short game. Completing everything it took me onl about 3 hours. If you are a mario fan, or you are looking for a good action game NEW SUPER MARIO BROTHERS does not fail. 8/10 -Esposito-
