Description of Product:” New Super Mario Bros. Wii, like all the previous releases in the Super Mario Bros. franchise is a side-scrolling platforming game where players collect coins as they attempt to make their way through progressively more difficult game levels using their ability to time jumps over obstacles and avoid a slew of enemies. But although the game contain several well-deserved nods to previous games in the series in the form of iconic characters like Mario, Luigi and two Toads, as well as familiar enemies, sound effects and levels, it is not simply another trip down Mario Bros. memory lane. Taking advantage of the flexibility and power of the Wii and Wii Remote, New Super Mario Bros. Wii manages to preserve the retro experience that fans love about the series, while adding new game features. Notable additions among these include, expansive play levels and new powerups and characters, but by far the most important, and in fact game-defining new feature is simultaneous multiplayer.”
Review of Product: I remember playing the first Super Mario Brothers over and over on my Nintendo in the 80’s. When I finished one of the higher levels, I took a picture of the TV screen because I was so happy with myself! Now I have a Wii and video games have come a long way. Remember those Nintendo controllers? You couldn’t really get Mario to do some of the things you need him to in order to beat Bowser. The New Super Mario Brothers for Wii takes care of that problem. Using the Wii remote, Mario can slide, jump, fly, etc. to your heart’s content. The music is whimsical and your old favorites like Yoshi are still there. I bet many adults out there will buy this for their kids and then spend hours playing it themselves!
I received a sample of this product to review at no charge but my opinions remain my own.
