Wii's World writes: "The Mario franchise. Nintendo's prize horse. It's gone through countless recreations and new directions. From 2D to 3D to racing, golf, and tennis spin-offs, well you get the idea. When the average person thinks 'video games', Super Mario is at the forefront of those thoughts. New Super Mario Bros Wii is the latest in the behemoth series, and more than anything it returns to the original formula."
