Nintendo goes back to its roots to create the first 2-D Mario game in 14 years
23 July 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

New Super Mario Bros is like the sequel that never came, until now, 16 years after the last one, Super Mario Bros 3. If you ever played those classic Mario games on NES, than you know what to expect. It's not that much different, the storyline is the same; you have to rescue Princesses Peach from Bowser. And it has some new items like the super-mushroom, which brings you to nearly the full size of the DS screen, and you can walk through almost everything. Also a blue mushroom (is not poison like in Super Mario 2) which make Mario to a Mini-Mario, which allows you to go places in the game you couldn't get to when you are normal-size. Another new item is a shell, a blue shell that you have on your back, I really didn't find that shell so much useful thou. Another new thing is that Mario can do is jump walls. But the flying power is gone, a small disappointment maybe, because I really loved Raccoon Mario. The biggest different from the classics is the graphics, is really amazing, really beautiful and perfect. They have also added Mario sound (not much), and the music is still pleasant. For experienced players could this game beaten easily and very fast, I believe it took me slightly less than five hours, and I wasn't trying to beast it fast. But the whole game wasn't completed, There are whole worlds that are skipped under "normal" playing through. Some levels have more than one exit and there are pipes and cannons to take you to various parts of the map and even other worlds. And you also got the 3 special coins that you can collect in each level, you actually need those coins to save. This is a great game and I will already call it a classic, all people who enjoy video-games will love this game. I actually bought a Nintendo DS lite because of this game and it's worth every penny. Let us just hope that Nintendo continues to keep these classics coming.
