New Super Mario Bros. U Review: Higher Definition, But Not Highly Different - Error! Not Found

"Nintendo’s flagship franchise faces a problem that so many series’ this late in their game are susceptible to: fatigue. There have been five “New” games in about as many years, and we haven’t had a proper 3D Mario since 2010′s Super Mario Galaxy 2. Just earlier this year we had New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the 3DS, which was received in a decidedly mixed fashion. I think most people agree that Mario needs a jump-start, or a break, or anything that could mitigate what’s fast becoming over-saturation. New Super Mario Bros. U is an immaculate and pretty game that relieves none of that dread or tension." (New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U) 3/5

We picked up a WiiU with Mario, game is amazing the last mario I have played is MN64, this is just amazing to me.

In a way, yeah. I thought the game seemed real easy compared to NSMBWii with rather less inspired level designing. Nevertheless, good game. But could have been better.
