In fact, it's reasonable enough for casual gamers to enjoy, maddeningly hard for challenge-seekingsolo gamers, and winds up as a great party game to boot.

This being game of the year for the wii is a good and a bad thing. To me it shows that nintendo hasn't lost their magic but it also shows that 3rd party support is still extremely lacking. If an enhanced version of a ds game is better than everything else, it shows that something is wrong.

Don't get me wrong, NSMB:Wii is an awesome game, i absolutely love playing with 3-4 players, i just wish 3rd parties would focus less on family style mini games and rail shooters.
