Classic Mario is back and better than ever!

This is a very, very, very good game with more items, enemies, and more. This game has 3D graphics (unlike games like The original Super Mario Bros). The only thing I don't like about it is the title I mean New Super Mario Bros. is pretty lame but the rest is so good. When you can be Super Mario, Fire Mario, Shell Mario, Mini Mario, Star Mario, and Mega Mario enemies should watch out. Plus lots of fun mini games to play alone or with some friends. So if you like enemy stomping, shell tossing, Fireball throwing action then you should divinely try New Super Mario Bros.

New Meets Old And It Can't Get Much Better

New meets old in this great addition to the DS library. New Super Mario Bros takes the classic Mario formula and adds to it in new and creative ways, all of them fun.

Graphics: Mario looks great on the DS. The environments are all very colorful and look great on the DS.

Sound: Your standard Mario sounds and music are included. A lot of the classic Mario tunes can be heard in the game in a remixed kind of way.

Gameplay: Pure and simple platforming at its best. You can't get better than this. The game plays like a standard Mario platformer but there are new and creative ways to play as well. You can become a super sized Mario and smash through bricks or you can become a mini Mario and get into very tight areas. Also the leaning platforms are interesting. You walk on them and they will tip in the direction with the most weight on that side. Also the tightropes are well done. The gameplay is simple and great. The game provides all the stuff that made the original Mario games so great and adds to that formula to create a new experience.

Overall: New Super Mario Bros is great. It provides all the great 2D platforming you could ever want and spices it up with some new elements. Mario is back to his roots and it does not get better than this.

10/10

now i have been a mario fan since i was 3 years old and have never got tired as playing as the plumber, in this case i still don't!! mario returns in this very good remake of the original nes mario really had me going after seeing it at 2004s e3 and when i rented this from gamefly i was just amazed at what this game had. you might get stuck in tight spots but you will figure out how to get out, and like always in a mario game the 8th world will be the hardest.

and just because you completed the game doesn't mean you COMPLETED it there is still those 3 special coins in each level for you to collect and the special exits and short cuts for you to find to keep you occupied until you are completely done with this game. there is also a code in which you can play as luigi in story mode (hold l and r and push a on a save file used or un-used to play as him)

this game also adds a fun multiplayer in which you have 1v1 mario vs luigi or multiplayer 4 player. and mini games for single play

anyways i give this game a perfect flawless solid 10 out of 10
