    A better game when playing multiplayer.

     Well to start off to describe this game, it is your basic formula for an old school Mario game. The catch here though is that for the first time you can play with up to 4 players. The game itself is pretty fun but can get boring when only playing by yourself, but when you play with other people the difficulty goes up and you just have more fun than you are when you are playing alone. For the 4 players you get Mario, Luigi, and a yellow and blue Toad. I wish for players 3 and 4 they could have been someone different, maybe have one Toad and hmm I dunno Wario or something. I think it would've been funny to have Yoshi in it too and have Yoshi ride a Yoshi, now that would be funny. Anyways this is your basic platformer from back in the day with some freshened up graphics for todays age. If you have played a Mario game in the past like Mario 3 or Super Mario World you will be right at home when playing this game. This is more of the same gameplay from back in the day but it is still fun today. You basically go through each level until you reach the boss of each level then go on until you get to the final boss, which I have to say is by far one of the best in the series. Some of the levels can kind of be tricky, but I have been playing Mario games for over 20 years so it wasn't to bad for me. Finally this game is just plain fun and a must own for every Wii owner out there especially if you have a lot of people around the house to play the game with.

Both are twins so therefore must dress identically in fashion but different in colour. Both have a strong resemblance to Ron Jeremy. They exist in a land paved and constructed almost entirely of bricks and sewage piping is used as transportation. These European plumbers must leap on top of unassuming turtles and teeth-boasting plants while see...

      New Super Mario Bros. Wii marks the return of 2D Mario games to consoles - I believe the first since Super Mario World.  Although it is in some ways a return to the classic formula that made Mario the king of gaming, Nintendo does their staple move of taking what made those games great, and expanding it, making it a unique yet still immensely enjoyable experience.  Obviously, the biggest change to New Super Mario Bros. Wii is the inclusion of cooperative play for up to 4 players.  I personally l...
