You need to check out our New Super Mario Bros U review. The appearance of a new Mario game seems to go along with the launch of every Nintendo console, and the Wii U is no different. Sure, old Mario is nostalgia, but is it actually good? We turned to Jason "Make A" Wishnov to get his expert opinion.
Here's a taste of his New Super Mario Bros U review:
"New Super Mario Bros U is the first ever first-party Nintendo game produced in high definition, and I’m very unsurprised to say it matters very little. The graphical style (save for a few relatively inspired levels in the Soda Jungle) is cribbed from previous entries in the NSMB series, which was never much worth your attention. Some impressive backgrounds via parallax scrolling are achieved, and boy do those coins look crisp, but this is not a game that in any way shows off the graphical capabilities of the Wii U. Combined with a remarkably disappointing musical effort, in which no risks are taken and entire songs are stolen wholesale from previous entries, one can’t help but shake the feeling of a very un-Nintendo level of polish here."
