Disappointing

I was so looking forward to this game, with the great reviews and cool-looking graphics and all. But I honestly can't see what all the fuss is about.

For a start, the game is just too damn short and too damn easy with nothing much to make you continue playing. I don't buy into all this 'unlockable' crap and the bonus stuff in New Super Mario Bros. isn't all that interesting anyway. I'm not going to waste my time doing over a level I have already completed just for the sake of unlocking a new background. Only a sad, pathetic loser would do something like that.

And the so-called 'ton' of mini-games is a bold-faced lie since most of them are the exact same ones featured on Super Mario 64 DS and only about 2 aren't. There's only about half the amount featured on SM64 DS too. So there's another wasted opportunity.

Maybe it's because I played this so soon after the GBA version of SMB3 or maybe it's because it's just so damn short and never really gets going, but I was just so let down by New Super Mario Bros. The giant Mario thing is cool but it lasts for 5 seconds. I do wish the flying ability from SMB3 was featured. Or that the game was simply worth the money.

Don't believe the hype. Only pick this game up cheap!
