For those who didn't click the link, Famitsu just release a review of New Super Mario Bros. 2. All four reviewers gave it a 9 out of 10, which certainly speaks for itself. Also helps that the magazine is incredibly respectable in Japan.

Think it's going to be that high in your opinion, perhaps a straight 10? To me, this confirms just how new the game is going to be. I can't read the review of course, but the score says enough.

    Wow, this is really good! I'm really hoping it actually ends up being a 9, that'd be great!

    & Yeah, with all of the new features and such, I could definitely see it having a 9. :3

    I like how there are reviews already even though the game was just released in Japan...

Nice! Finally the reviewers agree with me. This game is better than I thought.

I must admit that I'm shocked about the score, seeing that this game doesn't appeal to me as of now.
Good for those who enjoy the series though.

I am looking forward to reading other reviews. Maybe they can convince me to check this game out.

I have a feeling the professional reviews are going to anywhere from 7.5-9, nothing lower or higher than that. I can understand your point canderson, especially if you weren't a fan of the first one. Nevermind the reviews, I'm sure everyone here would be able to convince you otherwise.

I wonder how I forgot to post this as I saw this a while ago...

Famistu usually gives out good reviews and this is another good review for sure. I'm interested to see what other sites will give it.

I guess we will have to see what kind of reviews it gets in the US. Overall I think it could go ether way based on whether or not they like the coins.

Not just that, I'm sure most reviews are going to take points off for the lack of online gameplay and the rehashed music.

Well if anyone is curious. NSMB2 does sit at an 82 atm on Metacritic from 7 reviews.

Here's a few of the reviews:

Destructiod (70/100
Official Nintendo Magazine UK (90/100)
Guardian (80/100)

The Destructoid review is pretty much what I expect from most reviews. I decided to at least rent this game instead of skipping it.
I'm hoping the WiiU game will add some new original content.

I just read the Destructoid review, and I agree 97% on the Final Verdict. The other 3% is the fact that they might think that NSMB2 might have low replay value, too short, or large faults. But I do agree the experience will be good.


Oh, and my b-day's today!

I might check those reviews out sometime later on. Also, I'm guessing GameSpot will give this game an 8.5 or a 9.

If I was a reviewer, I'd give this game(the way I think this game is so far) a 9 or 9.5.

The Destructoid review sounds pretty accurate.NSMB never had a truly high replay value, few games actually do. I'm hoping all the extras in the future will change that though. Online play would be really strange, I'm not sure what they could make out of it.

I'll just see what I think of the game myself.
