The sad thing is that there's just nothing "New" about New Super Mario Bros. anymore, hell, I'm honestly not convinced that there ever was. It's a pretty shitty launch title to go with too, given that it's clearly not doing anything that couldn't really be done on the Wii, or even the 3DS. It's just the same old shit that we've seen in three other similar games already, it does nothing to present the leap in technology at all. Nintendo should've been brave and daring with an exciting new Mario entry, but instead they went with "quick and easy" with yet more New Super Mario Bros. Great.
