Nintendo Life review: New Super Mario Bros. U (Wii U)

Quoting Nintendo Life's review:

"While the level designs may appear fresh and engaging, there’s less progress being made elsewhere. The only new power-up is the Super Acorn, which grants the Flying Squirrel costume - handy for arresting your fall and performing last-minute leaps onto high platforms. A powered-up variant is also on offer which bestows the power of unlimited flight for a single stage, and is obtained by chasing down a dumpy little thief called Nabbit who occasionally pops up to raid the nearest Toad house before dashing to a previously completed level. Entering that level and capturing Nabbit will not only restore Toad's treasures, but also earn you the desirable P-Acorn. Other power-ups make a return from previous New Super Mario Bros. games, including the Ice Flower, Mini-Mushroom and Penguin Suit - and the fact that you never really crave any further additions to the repertoire indicates that Mario’s arsenal is as developed and robust as it needs to be - at leas... (New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo, Wii U) 9/10
