New Super Mario Bros. 2 Review
The "New" series can still deliver, but loses a lot of its original charm.
"How can New Super Mario Bros. be considered new if they're releasing a third game?" If we hear anyone ask this snarky question one more time, we're going to scream. Not because we're irritated, but because those people are right. From the get-go it's apparent that New Super Mario Bros. 2 is strikingly similar to New Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
We enjoyed the game regardless, though for nine measly worlds we felt a little ripped off. Only a few levels could be considered memorable examples of the level design expected from the Mario series.
