New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Nintendo Wii. 2009 Rated E
Summary and Evaluation
New Super Mario Bros. Wii continues the Super Mario saga as Mario must fight his way past Bowser’s minions to rescue the Princess. Familiar power ups like the Ice Flower, Fire Flower the the Starman aids Mario by endowing him with special abilities. There are nine worlds and 88 levels to conquer before rescuing the princess.
Fans of Super Mario of all ages will enjoy this game and as of March 2012 is the best selling game for the Wii. The Wii format has added fun new options like spinning the Wii remote to spin in mid-air.
Why I included this game
Super Mario Bros. is a classic game that many generations are familiar with. The content is acceptable for all age groups unlike some of the more violent games such as Call of Duty and yet is still enjoyed by teens. I felt this would be one of the less controversial games to have available in a library.
