New Super Mario Bros. for the Wii - Controlling Mario
(Page 2 of 4 )
The controls used in New Super Mario Bros. are a bit odd for one reason: the omission of support for the Classic controller. Since so many played Mario through the years on previous Nintendo consoles with a normal controller, this is somewhat of a deflection from the nostalgia of the series.
Regardless, the controls on the game work well, despite some hiccups that can occur during particularly challenging parts of some levels, where you really have to step up your game. You can control the game either in Classic style or Nunchuk style.
In classic style you hold the Wii remote horizontally (as if you had a Classic controller) and use its buttons to jump and perform varied attacks. If you want to perform complicated moves like picking up another player or spinning in midair, you will have to wiggle the remote in an abrupt fashion.
The same is true in Nunchuk style, where you use the Nunchuk to control motion. Performing all of these complicated moves by jerking the controller around repeatedly when on harder levels will definitely become a chore, and many times the moves do not flow perfectly, causing you to lose a life. Overall, though, the controls are solid and responsive.
