SmashPad: New Super Mario Bros. U Review

SmashPad: It has been 16 years since Nintendo has had a new installment of the legendary Mario franchise ready for one of its console launches. To find the last such instance, you’re going to need to go all the way back to September of 1996 and Super Mario 64. Since then, the company’s history has played out in ways one would have thought unimaginable upon first getting their hands on the Nintendo 64; a decline, an identity crisis, and a return to prominence that many argue was built on the backs of the existing fan base. Today, the Wii U marks Nintendo’s sixth entry into the console market, and if headlining launch title New Super Mario Bros U is any indication, this one aims to serve as a complete return to form. (New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U) 10/10

It is very good. Much more challenging than recent Mario games, which is great. It's one of the reasons you buy a Nintendo.
