From Amazon.ca

Developers at Nintendo have dreamed of creating a simultaneous multiplayer Super Mario Bros. game for decades. The Wii console finally makes that dream come true for everyone with New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Supporting 2-4 players in side-scrolling co-op and competitive platforming action, and featuring a mix of fan favorites and new characters, new powerups and various input options via the Wii Remote, it is destined to become an instant classic in one of the most beloved game franchises of all-time.

Gameplay
New Super Mario Bros. Wii, like all the previous releases in the Super Mario Bros. franchise is a side-scrolling platforming game where players collect coins as they attempt to make their way through progressively more difficult game levels using their ability to time jumps over obstacles and avoid a slew of enemies. But although the game contain several well-deserved nods to previous games in the series in the form of iconic characters like Mario, Luigi and two Toads, as well as familiar enemies, sound effects and levels, it is not simply another trip down Mario Bros. memory lane. Taking advantage of the flexibility and power of the Wii and Wii Remote, New Super Mario Bros. Wii manages to preserve the retro experience that fans love about the series, while adding new game features. Notable additions among these include, expansive play levels and new powerups and characters, but by far the most important, and in fact game-defining new feature is simultaneous multiplayer.

A Franchise First: Simultaneous Multiplayer
Since the very first Super Mario Bros. game took the world by storm in the late 1980s gamers anxious to get into the action have patiently and impatiently waited their turn as the infamous 'player 2.' Those days are no more. In New Super Mario Bros. Wii players can now navigate the side-scrolling worlds alone as before or invite up to three others to join them at the same time, on the same level, at any point in the game for competitive and cooperative multiplayer fun. With the multiplayer mode, the newest installment of the most popular video game franchise is designed to bring yet another type of family entertainment into living rooms and engage groups of friends in fast-paced Super Mario Bros. fun.

Controller Choices Via the Wii Remote
In another nod to the series' Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) roots, the Wii Remote controller used with New Super Mario Bros. Wii is held sideways, allowing for easy, classic inputs using the D-pad to direct playable characters, the 1 button to jump and 2 button to spit out projectiles like snowballs and fireballs. In addition, players can access powerups with their choice of either the push of a button, or by shaking the Wii remote, again demonstrating the perfect merging of classic gameplay and modern game design which is New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

  • New Super Mario Bros. Wii offers a combination of cooperation and competition. Players can pick each other up to save them from danger or toss them into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit of nostalgia, a lot of fun with friends Nov. 15 2009
By Meagol
Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is one of a very few games I can get my wife to (pay and) play for more than a few minutes. The upgraded, faux 3D visuals are great, the controls are as spot on as ever, and the mayhem that comes from playing it with someone else is incredibly fun. The level design is excellent, imaginative, with a perfect balance of challenging sections and more relaxed stretches that allow the chubby plumber and his lanky brother to catch their breaths. It's polished, and lovingly crafted, though it is by no means revolutionary--the only novelty is really the co-op/competitive play--but that is one heck of an improvement. So far I've only completed the first world level, but I can see how this game would have a better replay value than the original; the co-op makes the levels fun and unpredictable--sometimes there's a benefit to having someone to boost you up to a too-high-to-reach-on-your-own coin or platform, sometime the players just end up tripping each other up with funny consequences.

The cons for this game are the omission of online multiplayer--not a big deal, since Mario games have always been more fun when the players are physically in the same room; and the second is that players 3 and 4 are both toads, making them hard to distinguish during frantic play. Really not a big deal at all.

This game is definitely worth the purchase, whether you liked the original platformer and would like to revisit it with updated graphics and additional play mechanics, or just simply looking for a fun game to play. [...] [...].

Wow-wow-wow - Amazon censored my issue with the pricing?

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It!!! Nov. 20 2009
By Gwen
Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is so much fun. I loved the original Nintendo Mario Bros games and even kept my original Nintendo just to play these games. This updated version was extremely well done, it kept with the originals concepts and added on some amazing updated. I loved the penguin suit and the game saver option is great for when you just can't beat a level and just want to get on to the next level. I'm not a big video game fan and normally don't play a lot of video games but i found my self addicted to this game and ended up playing it for hours at a time. I would definitely recommend this game for anyone looking for a great wii game to play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mario Rules Jan. 13 2010
Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game for the girlfriend, who bought me a Wii for my birthday, but she plays it 10 times more than I do ... but I digress.

This game is a lot of fun to play, very true to the original game from way back. The only thing the girlfriend mentioned as a negative was the fact the controller is used differently than all the other games she has for the Wii. Typically the controller is used in line with the TV, however, for this game the controller is used "sideways" which took her a bit to get used to. For me it wasn't a big deal since I dont play the Wii as much as her, and to be honest, if you are a Mario player from olden Nintendo days, the use of the Wii controller is more like the original controllers, so it has a nice nostalgic feel to it.

Game play is really good .. a mix of old and new and still a lot of fun for this old timer!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a great sequel to the 2D Mario platformers of the early 90s! It brings back the Koopa Kids, The Airships, and the rest of the elements a Mario game needs. Not to mention is is a huge game for 4 players to play at the same time. The old music tracks brought back great memories. The best game on the Wii hands down. It plays to the console's strengths.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grandson gift Jan. 3 2010
Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased two copies of the game for two of our nephews and two of our grandsons.
It was the the most popular request of the season by the young people in our family.
The game provided our grandsons fun well into Christmas Eve.
I played the game for a while after the kids went to bed and it provides a good challenge even for us old timers.
I'm sure it will provide many hours of entertainment.
Grandpa

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute blast in multiplayer!! Dec 21 2009
By Alex
Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this game for my youngest brother as a gift. We just played it for the first time and it is absolutely hilarious in 4-player mode! We've gotten past the first two worlds after a couple hours of non-stop playing and it's been fun the whole way through. For anyone who likes multiplayer co-operative games, I would recommend this without hesitation.

In my experience, this game in multiplayer mode is fun for all ages, regardless of whether they've played the original version back in the day. My little brother is 11 and doesn't even know what the original Nintendo system is, but he loves this game so far. And I'm enough of a geezer to have played many hours of Mario Bros. on the NES back in the 1980s and I love this new Wii version too!

I haven't tried it in single player mode yet but again, going 4-player on this game rocks!

4.0 out of 5 stars new super mario bros Feb. 6 2010
Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was a gift for a 10 year old boy. He played it right away when he got it. I stayed and watched what he does for little over an hour. He really got into it and i also really like to watch and follow what he did. We both liked the secret passages and music reminded me of the old super mario from 15 years ago. in my view, it really looks like original super mario but better. controls were behaving well once you get used to the game flow and how to press controls. if a newbie adult that is not used to playing these type of a game tries to play it, it is not very discouraging like most shoot them first type of games like doom used to be. one can play this game only for 15 minutes or for 5 hours and always continue later with ease. i thought it is better than expected.
