The "Year of Luigi" continues with some special DLC for New Super Mario Bros U. Should you play it or is it a snoozer?
Welcome back to the most lethargic review series on the TAY blog. What do you mean Super Luigi U came out weeks ago? Did it? Well, that just means I've had plenty of time to play it. Here are the good, the bad and the meh.
- 80+ new levels for only $20.
- Completing the challenging new levels.
- Playing as Nabbit, the thieving rabbit.
- Short levels with a speed-run vibe.
- Classic Super Mario Bros action.
- Finding hidden pixelated Luigi portraits throughout the game.
- Pro controller support! Finally.
- Luigi's controls. They are hard to master and can frustrate often.
- Finding Star Coins. With only 99 seconds to complete levels you can't spend too much time snooping around.
- Dying often before you lock down Luigi's slippery controls. It's discouraging to say the least.
- Lack of Waluigi.
Yawnclusion: If you enjoy classic Super Mario Bros platforming and don't mind Luigi's unique feel than this game is for you. At $20 it's a steal, but prepare yourself for a bit of a learning curve.
