GamesBeat: New Super Mario Bros. U is far from new (review)

Judged in a universe where no other Mario games exist, New Super Mario Bros. U would easily be a triumph. As-is, it feels like a smaller effort, a checklist completed with recycled items. Nintendo fans will enjoy Mario U immensely, and they should. This game carries the standard proudly, offering all the smart level design, split-second escapes, and tight gameplay that creates (and deserves) such devotion. But it’s not a system seller, and it lacks inspiration. (New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U) 83/100

I really want to play this in HD. Damn you, Nintendo.

It looks like a good Mario, but not a great Mario. NSMBWii was a fresh experience because they introduced 4-player play, but the stuff they're adding to NSMBU is lame. I wish they would just make a massive, challenging, secret-filled Mario game instead of focusing on gimmicks.

Why can't CoD get this same treatment?
Blastoise  +   652d ago
Because CoD has been big for about 5 years. Where as Mario has had 2D platformers since 1985...

And CoD at least creates new characters, has a different (if generic) plot, and different environments/guns/etc. Though it is still pretty samey.

NSMBWii U

IN a 3rd of the time they have released almost half as many COD as Nintendo has Mario platformers...

Sybabat, It's hard to take you seriously as a Mario player when you claim they havent added any new environments yet they clearly have in every Mario game so far.
