Have your say

SEASONED Mario gamers will probably have been relishing and dreading this new release in equal measure.

Eager to experience dozens more levels of delicious platforming, but with a tinge of worry that it won’t live up to the ludicrously-high expectations each Mario launch title bears.

Well, you needn’t have worried. New Super Mario Bros. U presents the finest 2D foray into the world of Princess Peach, Bowser and co, delivering a number of innovative game experiences along the way.

And, finally, all is delivered in glorious HD.

Don’t underestimate the impact that will have on your enjoyment of this title – it’s taken a LONG time to for us to be able to see the plumber in his prime.

Of course, thanks to the game screen built into the controller, you can also continue your game away from the big telly if programming schedules conspire against your gaming desires.

Another fantastic feature that will change the way we play games.

Big characters, a big bold console approach and, on this showing, a big success.
