Can't get enough Mario in our home.

We Love it, love it, love it. The gangs is all back - Mario, Luigi, Princess, Yoshi and Toad. I originally had the DS version of this game and was hooked on it till I finally completed the game. Now I am able to play it on the Wii on my 56 inch HDTV and have up to 3 more players play along with me as a team. Our family spends hours and hours playing and laughing, arguing, joking around, complaining and just having the time of our lives. New Super Mario Bros is a great family game.

Nintendo has done it again. I can remember the original Nintendo game system that came out and finding all out the little secrets to get tons of lives and tricks to beat the game. Things have surely evolved since then. Now I have a hard time finding all the large gold coins on each level. Compared to the DS version, this version has new features such as propeller and penguin Mario to help you in times of need. Those times come in more often than not.

One handy dandy move that comes in real handy is that we always have one player convert into a bubble. This way if we are in danger of ending the game that person can save the day. This probably does not make sense to someone who has never played the game, but if you have more than one player you are able to press a button on the Wii remote and your character will go into a floating bubble. Everyone else can keep playing until someone touches them and it pops and you are back in the action. Players are also able to be added in and dropped after each level played, no need to restart the game.

A must have for any Mario Bros. enthusiast.

New Super Mario Bros Wii is an experience that every fan of the classic 2D Mario games may want to purchase and play. It features the same sort of game style that we have come to expect from all of those classic Mario games and combines most of their mechanics into one game. It uses mechanics that were seen in Super Mario World 2 with the ability to ride Yoshi, some of the music choices from those games, some of the level designs and mechanics from Super Mario Bros 1, 2, and 3, and uses their music. …

Everyone knows Mario.  The happy go lucky Plumber that saved the gaming industry once and redefined gaming several times over.  In 2006, Mario finally returned to his original 2D platforming roots with New Super Mario Bros.  The game itself, while great, was pretty short and easy.  In spite of that, that title has sold nearly 20 million copies worldwide in three years.  Whether it was because Nintendo had nothing better to do or because New Super Mario Bros DS is still flying …

It's Mario ... Just like you remembered and loved it. Only now it takes full advantage of the Wii's motion controls.

A refreshing new look and feel to the addicting NES classic that started it all.

Wiki

Developers at Nintendo have dreamed of creating a simultaneous multiplayer Super Mario Bros. game for decades. The Wii console finally makes that dream come true for everyone with New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Supporting 2-4 players in side-scrolling co-op and competitive platforming action, and featuring a mix of fan favorites and new characters, new powerups and various input options via the Wii Remote, it is destined to become an instant classic in one of the most beloved game franchises of all-time. dent { list-style: inside disc; text-indent: -15px; } table.callout { font-family: verdana; font-size: 11px; line-height: 1. 3em; } td.vgoverview { height: 125px; background: #9DC4D8 url(http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/electro...ail-page/callout-bg.png) repeat-x; border-left: 1px solid #999999; border-right: 1px solid #999999; padding-left: 20px; padding-right: 20px; padding-bottom: 10px; width: 250px; font-family: verdana; font-size: 12px; }
