Mario's first 2D outing on a home console in over 15 years is his best yet. If you own a Wii this is a no-brainer. If you don't, it just might be time to invest.
There was a lot of skepticism about New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and rightfully so. The way Nintendo was marketing it you'd think it was a shallow port of the DS game; a watered down party title disguised as a Mario adventure. New Super Mario Bros. Wii isn't just another Mario game -- it's Mario's best 2-D outing yet, even managing to top Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World.
