Default New Super Mario Bros Wii

Anyone tried it ?

I just bought it, and I already love it. The graphics are nice (think 2.5 D), the game is hard, but not too hard, new power ups, team play, etc.

highly recommended.

I tried it at best buy and I fell in love. They brought back the Airship in the intro, and it plays like SMB3 but with a hovering yoshi!!

As a 2D and Sidescroller enthusiest, I have to buy this game!!

I actually got it as an early Christmas present. I have to admit, I'm really enjoying it. I really like the fact they seemed to take a lot more inspiration from SMB3 and SMW. Also, it could just be me but the controls seemed to be a bit tighter compared to the DS version (which is a good thing). I remember when playing New Super Mario Bros. on the DS it felt like Mario was sliding on ice.

My only complaint about the game is I think the price was a little on the steep side at $49.99. I'm a big fan of classic side-scrollers but the amount of content here just doesn't seem to justify the price. I think this should have launched as a $29.99 release.

Well, alot of people complain when a game costs that much and there isn't that much content in comparison to modern games, but I really don't care. I tend to have alot more fun playing a 2D game than I do playing a 3D game, so even if the game doesn't last as long, I'm still having alot more fun playing it.

Anyways, think of back in the day, spending like $40 on Megaman X and then beating it in an hour. It's still one of my favorite games.

I haven't got it yet, but I will probably end up getting it as a Christmas present (and if I don't, I'm totally buying it the next day .

I played a little bit at a Gamestop and immediately loved it. I've also heard that it's rather difficult at times (at least to the degree of Mario 3) and that has me intrigued. I don't want any spoilers of it, but I think I heard somewhere the final boss battle was amazing.

A friend of mine picked it up, because he has a Wii, and he was very surprised by it. So I went over to his house and tried it, and the game is a blast to play, I really enjoy it.

When I bought megaman X the day it came out, I spent 100 bucks on it and beat it the same day also. (friggin' kmart.. but then again I even remember mario 3 being 99.99 here when launched for NES.)


At the time I was kinda pissed about it being so easy... but it is still to this day so fun to have a megaman game you can pretty much fly through and have a hell of a good time doing it.

On topic of new SMB , I have yet to try it. It looks great though. I'm mainly blown away by the fact that there is a level editor already xD
