People only don't like it because we've played all the other ones.
If you've NEVER played a New Super Mario Bros. title, you'll LOVE this game.
I found it the weakest entry of the series, but as I said, that's because of having played all of them and beaten them.
It's just like the second poster said, if you enjoy a good platformer, and haven't played the others, you'll love it. Even better if you download it instead of retail, as you can quick save and do a few levels, then quit, then come back whenever you itch for a quick game.
This. I hate it, due to it being too similar to the others, but on its own I understand it'd be decent. --- "Thank God Bramble Blast is such an epic track or else I would be beating my kielbasa against a waffle iron by this point."-ResidentEvilKoala

If you are craving a 2D platformer fix then sure, go for it, but if not, it's not a tragedy to miss out on what I consider to be the worst in the NSMB series. The DS one is much better.
Wow so that reward is definitely not worth it to me, no offense to those who want it.
Also, what makes the ds version better exactly?
honestly some people say it's better because they feel it's more unique or harder. I can unstand the first part but since i perfer my games to be easy i don't get the second part.
i say at the very least rent it,see if you like it then decide if you want to buy. --- Jirachi is the best pokemon ppl who agree:3 Pokemon Black 2 [OU rules player] Rosa:4170-2970-6954 PM Me if you add me.

The main reason why critics give this game a low rating is cause they say it's too much like the other nsmb titles. But, if you haven't played those then you should definitely give this game a whirl.
I own it and I've gotten hours of fun out of it. --- 3ds friend code - 5069-4253-9174

I enjoyed the game. Coin Rush mode is like cocaine to me when I get a street pass. There is this one guy at College that keeps beating my coin limit and I have to go back and beat it again then it just keeps going.

NSMBWii is the only NSMB worth playing, the only NSMB where they actually TRIED

If you haven't played the others GO FOR IT! However if you have a Wii U, get NSMBU instead. Although I hate the NSMB series in general, I love the level design of U, and have been having a lot more fun with it than with the other 3. --- 3DS FC - [1203-9218-7780] | XBL - [NettoSaito] | PSN - [NettoSaito] | Nintendo Network - [NettoSaito] My Backloggery - http://www.backloggery.com/NettoSaito
