Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Ranking NSMB U with other launch Mario titles

Best Mario Launch title?

Super Mario Bros
Super Mario World
Mario 64
New Super Mario Bros U

Currently at Soda Jungle with all the star coins collected and 3 of 4 secret exits found (through self discovery), I have to say that even though the game is gorgeous, controls are top notch and being able to play the game lying down on my bed is an awesome experience, I would put the game last in terms of launch Mario titles that I have played in the last 25 years.  Super Mario World being first, followed by Super Mario Bros for the NES (Did not have a N64).  I don’t want to say that the previous Super Mario titles (both 2D and 3D, console and handheld) that have been released in the past 6 years are diluting the game experience but well I guess I am saying that.

How are you enjoying the game so far and how does it rank for Mario Launch games you have played?

I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

I think the problem is with the production values and content rahter than the artstyle itself.



I LOVE ICELAND!

Yeah that too. Give it the AAA-treatment, new visuals and new audio. Bingo!!

I would say that U is the best installment in the NSMB series. I would also definitely say its better than SMB. I am not done with it so I can't compare to SMW yet, but that game will be tough to top...

Mario 64 is just too different for me to compare. So I won't

That´s reserved for 3D Mario.

I don´t think they enjoy making these 2D Mario games, they only make them because NSMB (DS--2006) and NSMB Wii reminded them of how much it sells.



Now my mind may change as I use more features of the game such as challenge mode and boost rush (which i plan to do as I introduce the system to the family this thanksgiving)

Sadly, this could very well be true :p

They also have really douchy double standards with the games. They say they want to make new experiences, and give us Galaxy 2, while the ole 2D Mario gets "I've made that game, I don't want to make it again". If they justify Galaxy 2 as a new experience due to the new content and ideas, they should be able to make new 2D Mario games with the same philosophy.

IDK, I have seen a lot of new ideas in NSMB:U, and ones that are new but based on old ones (homing torpedo teds?)  which made me very happy
