Review New Super Mario Bros. (Wii U eShop / DS)
When New Super Mario Bros. released for the Nintendo DS back in 2006, it had been roughly 15 years since the portly plumber starred in a proper 2D platformer. Not only that, but side-scrollers in general had been largely ignored since 1996, when the Nintendo 64 hit the market and assured us that 3D gaming was the way of the future...
Review New Super Mario Bros. (DS)
New and improved?
Just a little over 20 years ago, Nintendo released their Nintendo Entertainment System onto the US gaming market and packaged with it, a game that would forever change the landscape of video games. This game was the original Super Mario Bros. and it single-handedly sold millions of NES systems. Over the next five years Nintendo...

Wahoo, it's Mario Day! Sorry, MAR10 Day! Or, if you're in Europe, 10MAR Day!... Hmm, 'Iomar' doesn't work at all. Look, it's March 10th and Nintendo is celebrating all things Mario. There are movie trailers, Switch game sales,
About The Game
Twenty years after Nintendo's biggest franchise was born, the Mario Bros.® return in a dazzling, all-new platformer sure to set players' fingers twitching.
Fans from Mario's classic days will see their dreams answered in this return to the Mushroom Kingdom, while a new generation of Mario™ players will learn what true platforming greatness means.
Jump, bounce and power-up through visually stunning side-scrolling worlds filled with Mushroom Kingdom madness. Mushrooms make Mario ultra-tiny or ultra-huge, and new items like the Blue Shell (which transforms Mario into a spinning shell that wipes out enemies) will keep players on their toes.
The worlds are swarming with classic enemies like Goombas and Koopas, but watch out for new foes, big bosses and unbelievable challenges. As Mario and Luigi, two players can battle for stars on specially designed levels over local wireless. The game won't end until one bro. reigns supreme.
Game Storyline: Bowser and Bowser Jr. have kidnapped Princess Peach again, and only Mario can save her.
Characters: Mario, Luigi, a ton of Mushroom Kingdom enemies, both new and old, Peach, Bowser and Bowser Jr.
How to progress through the game: Run, jump and battle enemies through multiple levels in each world. Every time players finish one world, they can move onto the next, but each level features impediments in the forms of fortresses, Hammer Bros. and bosses. After defeating the boss of each world, players can move on to the next, culminating in the final fight in the last world.
Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Mario and Luigi can do all kinds of jump maneuvers: increasingly high triple jumps, wall jumps and high bounces off enemies.
Mario also can use power-ups like Mushrooms (grow big), Fire Flowers (throw fireballs), Starmen (become invincible), Blue Shells (turn into a speedy, blue Koopa shell) and other mushrooms that make him tiny or huge.
In addition to the main game and the wireless two-player mode, players also can use the touch screen to play tons of minigames (either by themselves or over DS Local Area Network with 1 to 4 players via DS Download Play). These include card games, target-bopping-type games and much more.
This Game Was The Jewel Of The DS. I paid $190 for the DS and this game, not to mention the free Nintendo(g)s Best Friends. Worth Every Penny.
I LOVE New Super Mario Bros. DS! It's supposed to come out for Wii so i'm going to get it for cristmas.
Really fun bet it getts pretty hard!
very fun game
I have this game on the DS. It really is good. But kinda a bit short and easy compared to the other Mario games. But still a great game and highly recommended.
Final score for me: 9.5/10
The gameplay is great. But the Wii version has a much better gameplay experience. I still recommend you get this version, it's really that great.
Wii and ds are different, but ds hass mega shroom, wii has ice floower, hat, yoshi, mini shroom(as does ds) who knows what else. ds has great minigames, though
I don't know if I should get this...
New Super Mario Bros. (DS) - 9.5/10
New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii) - 10/10
im going to do something i hate to do for this game. clean the house and mow the yard
Great game! But kinda short. 7.5/10
I have every level memorized, every star coin and mushroom house and I'm bored. I wish you could download more levels like in Mario vs donkey kong mini land mayhem. That would be SO SICK!!!!
this game is aaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwsssssssssooooooommmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeee!
This game isnt 4 players...Is it?
@UltraGamer Only on Multiplayer.....
I meant minigames.....
@varia01 Minigames are 4-player, Mario vs. Luigi is 2-player. I speak from experience.
@LuigiSucks Do you have a 2ds/3ds? On New Super Mario Bros. 2, you can pay& download more "Coin Rush" packs.
@FinalFantisiac yes you should
My #1 Most Favorite Video Game of all Time!!
