The title returned Mario to his 2D platformer roots, and took inspiration from many of his past adventures. However, it was far from perfect. Many criticised the game for being a little on the easy side, and the Giant and Mini Mushroom power-ups felt like a gimmick instead of a compelling part of gameplay. Overall though, the game was fun and a welcome addition to any fan's collection. New Super Mario Bros. Wii is more or less a sequel to its handheld counterpart, but it brings with it captivating level design, tremendously fun multiplayer, and the return of everyone's favourite green dinosaur."
