"As Mario says: "Super Mario Bros! Whee-hee-heeee!""
New Super Mario Bros Wii is a new and revamped game of the older Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros DS. It has updated graphics, harder levels, new bosses, and much more. It is one of my favorite games of all time. But, there is a weak spot to every game... that is mentioned later. For now, let's talk about the important stuff.
Once again, the story is unknown. It would probably be "Princess Peach has been kidnapped!!! Again!!! Mario must go through tons of different levels to find her and defeat Bowser."
The graphics of this game are excellent. They are three-dimensional in a two-dimensional world. Every enemy looks good, and the main characters, Mario, Luigi, and Toad also look great in three-dimensions. All of the levels are also excellently programmed. There isn't a single flaw in the graphics, so I rate it a ten out of ten.
Another perfect thing about New Super Mario Bros Wii is its sound and sound effects. They couldn't be any better. The music of each level is very well fitting, especially the tower and castle music. Also, the sound effects are good, such as enemies, Mario speaking, and walking along the level. The sounds and sound effects are also flawless, like the graphics.
General Gameplay: 8/10
Here is the main weak spot I mentioned earlier. The levels themselves is what I'm getting at. In the beginning, they are of no problem whatsoever. But, as you progress through the game, they begin to get tougher and tougher. Once you get to World 7 it becomes outrageous. Worlds 5 and 6 are good for the better players, worlds 3 and 4 are the best worlds for somewhat experienced players, and worlds 1 and 2 are definitely good for beginners. They are well thought out, until you get to the last two or three worlds. Other than that major problem, the gameplay is exceptional. The controls are mostly good, but you can't move as fast as you could in the SNES or DS versions. But the rest is awesome. All together, the general gameplay deserves an eight out of ten.
For the most part, this game is very fun and amusing. Now after world 6 it gets to be excruciating, but for the most part, Super Mario Bros Wii is a very amusing game. You will most likely think its one of the best games ever, because its tough to get mad at it. I find this game very amusing (until world 7).
Overall Rating: 9/10
With all five (or four, considering the story) key areas included, this game deserves a nine out of ten. It is definitely worth it, considering no key area was rated under an eight.
Rent vs. Buy:
BUY. DEFINITELY. This game is worth the money for sure.
