New Super Mario Bros. (DS)
Advantages: Hours of fun
Disadvantages: Very hard in places
This is more like the original Mario game, a 2D platform game. Of course the princess has been kidnapped again! While she was out on a walk with Mario they noticed a fire at the castle, as Mario rushed into action the princess vanished! I'm sure you all know who has taken her!
You have the usual map screen when you start the game and you move along completing one stage of each world. This is no different to the original Mario games. At the end of each world you battle Bowser Junior. There are eight different worlds.
As the game is in the original 2D format the graphics are quite basic to match the game, but it is one of those games where you don't actually pay that much attention to the graphics, as the game play is so good. I find it amazing that Nintendo have produced so many games of this nature yet they are all totally different. It is a credit to Nintendo and makes the game even more enjoyable as you don't really know what to expect next and it is always throwing new things at you.
As with most the games on the DS this game has a section full of mini games. There are around 20 of them on this particular game, making them a nice addition to the game.
The game starts off pretty easy and as you move on through the different worlds it gets progressively harder. This is good because it stops you getting bored with the game with it being too easy and it also eases players into the game who find normal game play hard.
The controls are extremely simple on this game, you use the +control pad to move and press one button to jump and another button to perform an action such as fire a fireball out. This means that anyone can master the controls within a couple of minutes.
The fact that this game is in the classic 2D style also makes it seem quite retro, and retro is definitely in at the moment!
This is another game that hasn't reduced in price that much since it was introduced to us. This shows us its huge popularity. The game reminds me of the reasons why I first purchased as DS. You will get hours of fun from this simple yet very enjoyable game.
Summary: Good Mario offering
