    Default New Super Mario Bros. U

    I started playing the game today and have gotten through World 1 and the tower on World 2. So far, it's a lot of fun and it looks to only get better from here. It was easy for me to lose track of time when I played it. I also love feeding enemies to the baby Yoshis. It's a little easy but I'm not focusing on getting any Star Coins just yet and I don't have a problem if a game is easy if it is also a lot of fun. So what does everyone else think of the game so far? How does it compare to the other New Super Mario Bros. games?

    I'm enjoying it so for. Though anyone know if there is the hint movies like there were in NSMBW? Also, are there any secret exits?

    I don't have the game (or a Wii U for that matter), but this game looks really neat, though, a definite improvement in the NSMB formula and everything NSMBWii and NSMB2 should've been.

    I don't have them either, and your right; it looks like an improvement to the last two games in the series.

    Just beat world 2 and I have to say, this new title feels fresh and surprisingly difficult.

    Until it starts handing you lives, just like NSMBW did. That is my main complaint with it so far. Have missed some Star Coins, which I will go back and get after beating the main game.

    I just beat Bowser and I have to say that this is the best of the New Super Mario Bros. games. It was a lot of fun. I haven't gotten all of the Star Coins yet so I'll have to go back and do so, but I have caught Nabbit in all worlds. I also like how no one super power is miles above the others in usefulness (save for the Power Acorn, but that's just an Acorn version of the P-Wing) like the Raccoon Leaf in New Super Mario Bros. 2 was. Each super power had its own strengths and weaknesses. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes 2-D Mario games, or Mario games in general.

    I would say that the Squirrel Suit, in general is miles above anything else

    Significant air control, an extra jump, & the ability to cling to walls make most levels a breeze (and majority of the star coins as well).

    I really like the final boss fight. It actually involves trying to defeat Bowser instead of just running away from him. I also really like controlling the Koopa Clown Kart so that should be fun

    Only on the platform levels with a lot of pits or on the fire levels in World 8. In the towers and castles, the Ice Flower is king, while against bosses and on overworld levels with a lot of Piranha Plants, the Fire Flower is the power-up of choice to tackle them. Underwater, either the Ice Flower or the Fire Flower is great.

    Underwater the blue baby Yoshi is unmatched, unless the red one can be used the same way.

    They can. I'd assume the Golden one can as well, but there aren't any chances to test it. It's meant to be a substitute for other underwater powerups, since this is the first game since World to not have a powerup that affects the way you swim, and even then you could consider holding an item while swimming a powerup in world, so it'd really be the first one since SMB1.

    At least until Post-game.

    I really liked that as well. That's one of the reasons why before this game, the original New Super Mario Bros. was my favorite of the NSMB franchise, and why I liked the two Super Mario Galaxy games so much, too.

    So, this is a good game. I have beaten Bowser and gotten all Star Coins and caught Nabbit in all of the first eight worlds. I am currently in the process of beating Superstar Road.

    9-2 was not as difficult as I had heard, but the timing was a real pain, especially that third Star Coin. I could've cheated by using Propeller Mario, but I wanted to do it tough. 9-3 wasn't hard, just annoying. As long as I remembered to take it slow and shoot the damn fish, I was fine.

    So far there has been nothing as difficult as NSMBW's 9-7, so let's see what the next five levels are like.

    That's Thrilling Spine Coaster, right? Yeah, that's one of the more annoying Star Coins.

    NSMBU is a great game. I've got it since (European) launch. The music sounds a bit tropical but I like that.
    The levels look great in HD and Squirrel Mario is a great new power-up.
    I like the idea that the adventure doesn't start at Peach's Castle
    but somewhere far far away.
    My favorite world is Frosted Glacier because of the world map music :-) .
    My favorite boss fight is the fight against Wendy. Don't know why, it's just good.
    But now I have a question. Does anyone know how to get to Fliprus Lake, the secret level of Frosted Glacier?

    That is one of the nastiest secret exits I have seen in a Mario game.

    I got close once, but wasn't high enough to get on the floor. I just used a regular Acorn from the normal exit.

    Currently working on getting all the Star Coins in the final world, then will head to the rest of Superstar Road.

    Anyone know how to get the 5th star on your save?

    Catch Nabbit in Worlds 1-7,or find all 94 exits (flagpoles).

    I got the game recently and I'm liking it a lot so far. Sparkling Sea is my favorite area as of now.

    Done both. Got all the secret exits, caught Nabbit in each world, got all the star coins (including Super Star Road), beat Bowser, got all the exits through Peach's Castle. Am I missing something?

    From what I can find, you need to
    Star One - Defeat final boss of the main game
    Star Two - Find all star coin from worlds 1-8
    Star Three - Beat every level and search every exit of worlds 1-8
    Star Four - Find all star coin in Superstar Road
    Star Five - Catch Nabbit in worlds 1-7 once/

    Maybe if you used any assist blocks you can't get five stars. That's what I've heard.
