Video game journalists and reviewers were unabashedly blown away by New Super Mario Bros. Wii this week, and rewarded the recently released Nintendo title with their highest honor for Nintendo titles: The coveted “8.0 (decent)”
The reviews were legion for this highly anticipated title, but all seemed to share an unbridled enthusiasm for this, the first side-scrolling Mario title to grace a Nintendo console in more than a decade.
“Nintendo should damn proud of this quirky 4-player affair,” said Elite Players Extreme to the Maxx Monthly editor Shades McBloodsport. “8.0 is the highest rating attainable for a Nintendo product in our publication. Even so, giving this title recognition and a perfect 8.0 was an easy decision. The game is absolutely flawless,” he said, adding “for a Nintendo game.”
