Collecting coins is certainly nothing new in the Mario games. I've been doing that long enough to know every 100th coin you get hands you an extra life. New Super Mario Bros.2 , however, is the latest entry in the renowned Nintendo franchise that extends this parliamentary gameplay boon to entirely new heights. While it isn't without its blemishes, NSMB2 is a fine addition to the Mario family and a great romp for 3DS owners looking for classic Mario thrills on the go.Once again, Princess Peach h...
Another Nintendo platform and another game for their famous mascot. It isn’t hard to see the formula at work here and why should it be? It has only been the exact formula that has allowed Nintendo to still maintain relevance all these years later. Upon the launch of the 3DS Nintendo has released a slew of Mario themed games for it. New Super Mario Bros. 2 is just another in that list. The difference is that I happen to have a copy of it so I can provide you with my thoughts on it. In case you mi...
In 2006 Nintendo released New Super Mario Bros., the first side-scrolling platformer starring Mario since the Game Boy’s Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. At the time New Super Mario Bros. was an exciting nostalgia trip, evoking fond memories while still managing to feel fresh and new. Now just six years later, Nintendo has sent Mario into outer space (twice) and put him in 3D. In the process they have pushed the conventions of platform level design in new and exciting directions. With the lev...
Miyamoto once said that having established characters and franchises such as Mario allow development teams the freedom to effectively create a new IP with each release of a game under the Mario banner. This statement seems odd at first, however closer inspection suggests some truth to the claim. Just think; Super Mario Brothers, Mario 64 and Mario Galaxy share almost nothing in common other than the basic art style and characters.As a result of this, it is more than a little disappointing to fin...
I gave super Mario bros. 2 a 4/5 because it was a very adventurous and exciting game. But I think that it could have had a few more new qualities that were different from the first ds game super Mario bros. I thought that the flying was cool, but i thought that you should fly longer. Also I think that the golden flower should be used more than it is. The game was fun but the boss levels were cool nothing like they have ever done before. I absolutely love the coin head where you get coins when yo...
Note: Watch the video review here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KThrRt1inA&feature=context-chaNew Super Mario Bros. 2 ReviewNew Super Mario Bros. 2 for the 3DS does a bunch of things right. In fact there isn't really much of anything particularly wrong with the game. But that doesn't exactly mean it does anything spectacular. Which really is my main complaint with New Super Mario Bros. 2. It plays it too safe to the chest and as a result I ended up being pretty bored throughout my entire ...
