After playing Super Princess Peach for the DS, I have to say that I was pleasantly impressed. What appears to be a game aimed toward the young and/or newer gamer, it also features enough depth with a twist on gameplay that even the most experienced gamer should take a look at this game. With enough items to find and purchase (and unlockable bonus stages), there is a high replay value with this game. A game done in true Mario fashion. I would highly recommend this game to anyone that is in need of a break from the norm. A title that every one in the house can enjoy.

Super Princess Peach has the princess rescuing Mario this time. Bowser has stolen the magic Vibe wand and has used it to capture our favorite plumbers and its up to Peach and a talking umbrella name Perry to save them. Peach use her four "vibes" to solve puzzles - joy to fly, anger to burst into flames, gloom to cry and run faster, and calm to regain health. You can activate them using the touch screen.
The game has you using the different vibes to solve numerous puzzles, and to defeat enemies and bosses to rescue a ton of Toads that are trapped in boxes across the levels. In some off the later levels, you do have to think a little to find some of the Toads, but it never becomes to hard. That is one of the down sides of the game, it is far to easy. The end of the world bosses' weaknesses are even given to you, making the easy battles even easier.
This game was aimed at the younger audience, but even the older crowd could get into it if they give it a try. :)
