IGN has their review posted for New Super Mario Bros. Wii and gave it an 8.9. I’m okay with most the criticism of the game (like no on-line play, can’t save levels that you played, even though the developers got to do it with their in-game Super Guide).
The one criticism I didn’t care for was the comparison to Super Mario Galaxy. This game isn’t the successor to Super Mario Galaxy; it’s the successor to New Super Mario Bros. Just like Super Mario Galaxy 2 will be the true successor
IGN made a list of the Top 100 NES Games of All-Time and I’m every pleased that the right game was named number one: Super Mario Bros. 3.
As many of you may know the Xbox 360 Elite and PS3 Slim recently cut the price of their systems to $299.99. That’s big news since both systems have been know in the past to be on the pricey side and made the Wii seem like a bargain at $249.99, when the Wii was first released back in 2006.
The problem though is that with the current price of the rival high-end versions of the 360 and PS3 now at $299.99; having the Wii still at $249.99 doesn’t seem like such a bargain anymore.
I’m a HUGE Super Mario Bros. Fan. Have been one for a long time. The announcement of Super Mario Galaxy 2, at this year’s E3 brought a lot of joy for me because I had so much fun playing the original, but still I did have some problems with the original Galaxy that (hopefully) Nintendo will fix in the sequel when it comes out in 2010.
1. The Life System
Traditionally, when you earn extra lives and then save the game you keep them. Not in Super Mario Galaxy, where if
If you think about it. There really haven’t been that many Adaptations of Nintendo Characters in other media. Animation especially. I mean as Pokémon Fans we have been both very fortune and lucky that for 11 years (12 in Japan) and counting that there has been a Pokémon cartoon to watch.
I mean, look at the other Nintendo properties. Despite their popularity there have been very few cartoons about them.
