I enjoyed playing this Mario game but Princess Peach is the worst character.
12 February 2020 | by crosswalkxSee all my reviews

I have played this 3ds game New Super Mario Bros. 2 and you get to play as Mario, it's like playing Super Mario Bros 3 or Super Mario World except you get to collect 3 star coins and find secret room exits. There are a total of 9 worlds to explore.

I like the Raccoon Leaf item that allows Mario or Luigi to fly and I like the fire flower and golden flower, I didn't like the mini mushroom which left Mario or Luigi vulnerable. But like all items I have one question, why can't Mario have both power ups like a Raccoon Leaf and Fire Flower at the same time. I would've loved to fly while using my fire balls why can't I have 2 power ups at the same time? I'm glad you can get an invincible Raccoon Leaf if you die too many times.

About the story, the annoying whiny Princess Peach allows herself to get kidnapped by Bowser's minions and Bowser himself. Seriously what the heck is wrong with Princess Peach, is her castle security very bad? She should've hired competent security guards that would actually defend her. Princess Peach is much better character in Super Mario RPG, Super Princess Peach, Super Mario Bros 2, Super Mario 3D world, so why is she being a complete wimp, if she did that in real life she would be assaulted or killed.

Anyways it was fun to play on the 3DS. But seriously I would've fixed Princess Peach to fight back. Also why is Bowser being so dumb as to allow Mario in the castle, he should've just locked him out to make it more challenging for Mario. Also why does he have a button to collapse the bridge but stands on the bridge, come on, even a clueless villain would have the sense to stand behind the bridge on the button to prevent the opponent from crossing the bridge. It does get a little repetivie playing the levels trying to find secret exits and star coins that I had to search the Internet for helpful game tips. But this is a game to play if you're into platform games.
