Nothing New in Super Mario Bros. U | SWS Review

Smart When Shouting explains why New Super Mario Bros. U is, at best, a nominal upgrade from the last game and why most critics are overrating it. (New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U) -

Suprise suprise. It's definitely stale.

Yes, the odd review out of many that praise it (and from personal experience, it surprised me with how fun and unique it is) must mean the series is "definitely stale".

Technically the same argument can be used for any repetitively designed franchise. Madden, Assassin's Creed, Angry Birds, just about any popular first person shooter franchise, etc.

Just because it's 'samey' doesn't mean it can't be fun.

Angry Birds doesn't require a $60 charge attached to a new venture. And that's a poor example seeing as they've changed the birds abilities twice now..each time shaking up the formula. Mario is still jump,run, throw...same environments, same hazards and from what Ive seen same boss fights.

Right and the new levels and power-ups in Mario do... what exactly? I don't recall seeing a flying squirrel costume in New Super Mario Bros. on the DS.

With Angry Birds it is still pull back, aim, let loose. Same formula with minor tweaks. Same difference there.

I'm getting a Wii U in two days and plan on getting it because I haven't played a side scrolling Mario game since the paper Mario on N64 so it will be fresh to me!

Recently started playing Super Mario Bros 3 via Emulator. World 8 still kicking my ass 26 years later.
