New Super Mario Bros U vs Super Mario Bros. 3

#1Paulf001Posted 11/24/2012 1:43:32 AM
Just how good is New Super Mario Wii U compared to Super Mario Bros 3? Its really the only game I see worth buying for a Wii U at the moment still undecided on getting one now or when they are like $150 a couple years down the road.

I was only 8 years old when Super Mario Bros 3 came out on the NES but it was so fun of beat the game at least 300 times or more.

So does New Super Mario Wii U compare to SMB3?

I am guessing you didn't play SMB3 when it was first released?

A lot of people compare NSMBU to Super Mario World, but I've always felt Super Mario Bros. 3 was a better comparison. In that regard, it probably is better than 3. It's sort of between 3 and World in terms of quality IMO, with some of my favorite aspects of SMW being incompatible with levels that are designed to be doable with 4-player co-op.

Anywho, to answer your question, I think this game is better than SMB3 in most aspects, and is similar to it in many others. It has the Koopa Kids in their airships with their magic wands again, there's a giant world, and a cloud world, and that ****ing fish that eats you in one gulp, and items that are used on the map... Yeah.

Super Mario Bros 3 is the very best main 2D Mario ever made.

New Super Mario Bros U is the very worst main 2D Mario ever made (to give it credit though, it can be argued that NSMB2 is the very worst 2D Mario game ever made).

Super Mario world to this day is probably still the best ever Mario game. At least of the 2-D ones. All of the NSMB games are really good though. We probably just aren't as fond of them simply because they aren't from when we grew up. If you were around when Nes and Snes came out there's no reason you shouldn't like them.

IMO new super mario bros U is the best 2d mario game, nostalgia aside.

Most horrible opinion ever. nsmbu is one of the greatest. Top 3 for sure.

Am I supposed to be blinded by my nostalgia and say SMB3 beats every 2D Mario game ever? Well, it was good, but Super Mario World, New SUper Mario Bros and New Super Mario Bros U beat it.

So, to answer your question, NSMBU is better.
