New Super Mario Brothers

It's been a long time since I played the last Super Mario on Nintendo. Now, it's time to do it again.

With more features, better graphics, challenging adventures, more difficult levels, and absolutely fun! I wonder if there will be a Super Mario Brothers game for Xbox360 arcade game.

The Best

New Super Mario Bros. is one of the best games I know of for the DS. Here's some stuff about this game.

Graphics: 10/10

Beautiful graphics, I love just looking at the backround. Mario looks really good this time when he's in 2-D.

Gameplay: 9/10

You see, really the gameplay is great. They just keep giving you replay value, like the floating red boxes that appear every once in a while, or the Hammer Bros. I also love all the new enemies. They are so mario-like, which makes me happy.

Sound: 10/10

Very well made music, it's very enertaining listening to it, all the music fits into each music. Mario sounds just what he did when he died, or jumped.

Controls: 9/10

When you are doing World 5, the controls can get cranky because of all the ice in the levels. Otherwise, they work great. I do like Mario's new moves alot.

Other stuff: 10/10

The new enemy's are wayyyyyyyyyyyy to easy to beat. I beat the World 5 boss on my first try. Collecting all 240 star coins can be very hard, this keeps me on the game. I just got World 6 today, but I havn't tried it yet. All of the World's are very intresting, there's no fire world, electric world, or any of those types of world's. Also, hidden, it's wierd because after you beat World 3, you go to World 5, and you have to unlock World 4. It's the same with World 7.

Mario vs Luigi: ?-?

Sorry, I can't review that because I havn't tried it.

Minigames: 6/10

I'm pretty dissapointed with the minigames. I knew that there would be some from SM64 DS, but instead, theyr'e all from SM64 DS except like 4! Only like 4 new ones! They were taking the short way out by adding all these minigames from Super Mario. I mean, sure, they are fun, but after playing them 500 times already on SM64 DS, theyr'e just boring.

Here's some Pros. and Cons. to pretty much wrap it up.


New enemies

Great Graphics

Great Sound

New minigames

lots of replay value


Not enough new minigames

Bosses too easy

When your stuck, get's boring

Overall: 9.9/10

This game is a must buy game for DS owners. If your getting a DS, get this game with it. Trust, this game is something you will be playing for weeks.
