New Super Mario Bros. U Review | EuroGamer

EuroGamer: "Is the plumber's Wii U debut as good as his recent 3D outings? Not quite, but for the New Super Mario Bros. series, it's a real step forward in detailing, imagination and character. There's always been a keen Mario brain working away inside these 2D design exercises. Now, it feels like there's a proper soul to go along with it." (New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U) 9/10

"The ghost houses aren't as spectacular as Galaxy's, but they're amongst the toughest you'll ever encounter."

"The campaign stages are more creative than most things the New Super Mario Bros. series has offered to date."

Bring it on. :)

don't forget the challenge modes, I think that is where the community will take off, challenging people to do things, and then trying to beat them.

I was just about to joke that Eurogamer would give this a six amid a parade of eights and nines. Oh well, all aboard the Game of the Year train!

Sadly, the simple fact that this is from Nintendo and doesn't have gun and gore will prevent it from getting game of the year regardless of how many millions it sells and how overpoweringly good the scores are.

I agree with you that Nintendo games do seem to get bushed aside by the "too mature for colours" crowd, but remember when Mario Galaxy? It got a lot of GOTY recognition..

Let's all just give Mario a 9/10 because of nostalgia!
