Gaming Age writes: "It's been a long time coming, but we finally have a new 2D (well, 2.5D?) Super Mario Bros. side-scrolling for a home console with this newest release, New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Don't let the name fool you into thinking this is just another ho-hum attempt at the franchise by Nintendo after the less than stellar New Super Mario Bros. that popped up on the DS a year or so ago. It would seem that a few lessons have been learned about what fans enjoy from one of the longest running game franchises out there, and NSMB Wii is a far better effort than it's DS brother. It's not a perfect romp through the Mushroom Kingdom, but it's definitely worth a look for old and new fans alike."
