Yes it's great. I'm a platformer nut so having New Super Mario Bros. along with Sonic Rush, Super Princess Peach and Kirby Power Paintbrush makes me very happy ^__^. I have Yoshi's Island 2 and the new Kirby game to look forward to as well! Having a DS rules!

Yep, I have it, and absolutely love it. I constantly come back to the old Mario 2Ds, so it's lovely to have a new one to plough through :D I'm deliberately going through it slowly though, I hate completing games so quickly after buying them.

I unlocked worlds 2 and 7 yesterday so I'm almost done. I just need to collect the remaining star coins now.
Giving it 100%, 60% of the time.

OK, so i spent a few hours playing this over the weekend and got to world 5 I think.

It's great fun and I love some of the things they've been able to do with a 2D game that couldn't be done on lesser machines. The level design is good, although a little frustrating sometimes (not in a good way) and there's a new concept of some description in every level so they've clearly spent a lot of time thinking up good ideas.

However, the problem is that there's clearly a lot of stuff that I haven't collected and levels I've missed, but I just don't care! The game just doesn't make me want to explore and go back and find everything.

I've said it in the other thread already but I really think that mario is better in 3D, 64 and sunshine made you want to explore, I could run around for ages looking for hidden platforms, trying new things and I just had to complete every red coin challenge (which are crap in NSMB) , I just don't get that from NSMB, I just want to get to the end of the level so I can finish it.

I'll get about 8 hours of gaming from NSMB where I got over 40 hours each from 64 and sunshine so I feel a bit ripped off paying £29.99 for it. Still there'll be a cheap copy for sale on my site in about a week when I get fed up with it :)

Oh i forgot to mention, the other reason I had to keep putting NSMB down was that I also took polarium away for the weekend with me and it really is a fantastic game, managed to unlock about 80 of the 100 puzzles over the weekend and I can't wait to finish the other 20. Best puzzle game i've played for ages.

I finished this the weekend it came out (that was without getting to the two secret worlds though!!) but haven't been disappointed with it as I keep going back to it to look for the odd secret exit and star coin that I've missed, and also, it's just bloody good fun to play. :D

I don't understand all these people who keep saying it's too short and easy, they obviously aren't bothering to explore the levels properly and find everything. The older 2D Mario games weren't particularly 'difficult' either, don't forget.

It's kind of like the people who knocked Yoshi's Story on the N64 for being too easy without playing it to find all the secret melons and extra levels methinks. Why bother paying good money for a game you aren't going to play to it's full potential?

I finally bought this yesterday and I think it's very good. I'm up to world 4 now but I've only found 1 hidden level. How do you gain access to the other 'hidden' stages on the map? I thought you had to collect all 3 big star coins, but that doesn't always work?

Some levels have more than one exit.

I got this yesterday and I'm up to World 5, I'm really enjoying it.

I'm trying to find all the coins but sometimes you don't get the right power up(Mini-Mario) to get to them, so you have to go back and play it again. I haven't had so much fun in a platformer since I first plugged Super Mario World into my Snes 14 years ago!
