Newcomer and nostalgic Mario lover, Chad Drake, has tackled the latest Mario Bros. title, New Super Mario Bros. Wii to see if Nintendo's retroactive design nature can survive in this 3D gaming world we inhabit today.

The answer is, of course, yes. It's Mario - he can survive anywhere. And retro as it may be, the game oozes old-school charm while also very cleverly introducing innovative new gameplay elements and ideas, the biggest of which is the much touted four-player competitive/co-operative multiplayer. Wii owners really should put on their red caps and start jumping on goombahs and koopa troopers.

lulz. Deadspace got 9.5 so pretty much ignore the score and read what they have to say. I like the ads on TV for these games "hey guys, remember this shit you used to play in the 90s? Well we have released it again!" Nintendo perfection.

Its not Nintendo's fault they have been around so long and still kicking ass.

Im sure MS and Sony will be doing the exact same thing in ten years.
