Games review: New Super Mario Brothers


Format Wii

Publisher Nintendo

While on one hand, New Super Mario Brothers is a case of business as usual, with a familiar cast and objectives (rescue the beleaguered Princess Peach once again), the sheer skill with which it has been put together makes it as fresh as a brand new title. Accomplished as a single-player, pick-up-andplay game, it comes into its own when you play it with others. A retro classic that’s thoroughly modern.
