New Super Mario Bros.

PlatformNintendo DS

Year Released2006

After receiving a great number of 3D Mario's, both on the bigger consoles and with Mario 64 DS, New Super Mario Bros. was quite the pleasant surprise to see Mario returning to his 2D roots. The game was just phenomenal, with giant sized Mario, mini-Mario, and the blue koopa shell being nice additions. The game was a bit short, though, and you could make it even shorter with a bit of skill. But it was still a magnificent game, handheld notwithstanding.
