Although I felt totally embarrassed by every level the game threw at me, I couldn't help but want to keep playing. It's as if Nintendo wanted to silence the critics with a knockout punch. You wanted hardcore? Take this. I walked away from the controller, humbled, feeling as if Reggie Fils-Aime punched me in the gut -- and I loved it. I can't wait to see the stunned look on Grandpa's face when he thinks this is just another New Super Mario Bros Wii. It might just kill him.
