Quoted from New Super Mario Bros. U Reviews:
Check out these quotes from New Super Mario Bros. U reviews & previews
"But what makes NSMBU interesting is the way it occasionally toys with series conventions despite leaning on so many predictable themes. Take one of the seemingly standard underwater stages in Sparkling Waters as one example. Everyone knows what to do in a sunken Mario stage: Swim to the end of the level and gather coins while avoiding enemies, and hunting for Special Coin along the way. But NSMBU adds a twist in the form of a giant sea monster that swims into and out of the frame. Players have no choice but scurry around and seek safety underneath the beast as it swims to and fro, and the race for shelter becomes even more intense in multiplayer sessions."
"Squirrel Suits, inflatable Yoshi's and touch-screen blocks spice up a familiar formula."
"We're hopeful, then, that while New Super Mario Bros U hasn't rocked our socks yet, we may still need to take a trip to Primark and stock up on them anyway just in case. Of course, it also still remains to be seen how the Miiverse functionality will work, but for now New Super Mario Bros U is guaranteed to be great fun and offer lots of laughs. It's definitely a worthy launch title - it's just not necessarily guaranteed to take any risks or surprise you."
"You'll complete it in a weekend, but the challenges will keep you plugging away for months. Ol' Faithful delivers another strong 2D platformer without even breaking sweat."
"It may not be a reinvention of the 2D Mario series, but stuff like Boost Rush mode shows that Nintendo is still working to find new ways to make local multiplayer feel fresh and exciting."
