So Far With New Super Mario Bros. Wii

We recently got Super Mario Bros. Wii, and it is a blast!  In case you haven’t heard of it, this game plays much like the older Mario Bros. games, but with co-op.

So far I have only played it with 2 players. (me and my brother)  It is great running through the stages and planning strategies together. We jump off each others heads to reach items and pipes.  Also, if we ground-pound at the exact same time, we can wipe out all nearby enemies.

The game has been designed so that the more talented players (my brother) can help the less gifted players (me) along.  For example, if there is a place that I do not think I can get past, Steven can pick me up and carry me across.  Another stategy might be that Steven makes his way across by himself then I press A to enclose myself in a protective bubble that I can ride to him.  The bubble turns out to be verry usefull in getting past difficult places, since only 1 person acually has to make it.  Also, if you find yourself falling into a bottomless pit, hopping into a bubble can prevent you from losing a life.

But its not all teamwork and helping hands…with an extra player on the screen, you are extra likely to screw up. (and make your partener pay)  So many times has one of us accidentily threw a shell at the other.  It is also really easy to accidentily bounce of each other and knock your teamate into a bottomless pit before they even know what happened.  If there if one word you will find yourself saying a lot in this game its “sorry!”

This is shaping up to be a great game so far.  I just can’t wait to try it with 4 people….imagine the chaos!

Sometimes you want to go, where everybody knows your username...
