Gamers XTREME - New Super Mario Bros. U Review (Wii U): “Platforming Brilliance”

Glacier928: "New Super Mario Bros. U is another outstanding installment that shows the plumber hasn’t aged one bit. Whether you’re playing solo, with a friend, or with a group of people, NSMBU provides for some of the most fun you’ll have on the Wii U. It’s simply a beautiful game to see in action, has the same whimsical audio and flawless gameplay that made it the franchise it is today. If you have a Wii U, then you must buy New Super Mario Bros. U." (New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U) 9.5/10

This is one of the few reviews where the different types of yoshi were included and explained. Great Review!

However, I take issue with one aspect of this review. The part were it says "There’s no button or feature you’ll have to switch if someone wants to watch TV in your room and you’re still busy traversing..." I've not heard this explained this way. Even though I don't have the game, it was explicitly shown in the commercials that one could play the game while another watches TV. Can't you simply change the channel, so someone can watch TV, while the other person plays the game on the gamepad? The article makes it seem as if it's impossible.

Thanks for the compliment on the review! We aim to provide in-depth reviews so the reader knows exactly what to expect when getting into the game (without spoiling any important plot devices).

As for the ability to play on the GamePad and TV, I simply meant that you don't have to do any additional work to switch from playing on the TV to GamePad. For example, if you play Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge and want to continue it on the GamePad, you have to access the game's options first to switch the output, then you can play on the GamePad. In Mario, the game is always displayed exactly the same on both the TV and GamePad so someone can simply come in, change the TV input to watch cable/satellite and all you have to do is look down at your GamePad to continue.

Oops sorry. I must have misread it. Anyway, you've got me more excited for this game then I already was. Thanks!

@Ben_Rage_3

No problem! Glad I was able to clarify that a bit and you'll definitely love the game.

I was not looking forward to this game much. I was disappointed in Nintedo's decision for another what I thought would be a rehash. So I did not buy it, but rented it. WOW I was wrong. The game is FUN plain and simple, and Mario looks very nice in HD. I will eventually buy this game for sure. The video game budget is blown for a month or so, with Christmas coming. Who knows Santa might get it for me. (LOL I am 41)
