    New Super Mario Bros. for the Wii - Mario Difficulty and Super Guide

    (Page 3 of 4 )


    The occasional control hiccups bring us to the next topic, which is the game’s difficulty. Even if you have played Mario games in the past until your fingers were sore, you will still be challenged by this game. Well, that is unless you are that kid from the movie The Wizard.

    While you can use your experience from previous Mario titles as a stepping stone through some territories that may look familiar, after the first level you will undoubtedly have to increase your skills and concentration. The game is not impossible, though, and having to repeat certain levels not only improves your Mario skills but also gives the game a lengthy life in terms of playability.

    Does the game’s difficulty mean that all casual gamers should avoid it completely? Absolutely not! Since the Wii is considered a family-oriented console, developers of New Super Mario Bros. were smart enough to make it accessible to those even with limited gaming experience.

    This effort is seen not only with the multiplayer integration, which will be discussed in a bit, but more so in its creation of the Super Guide. The Super Guide could be considered a cheat by some, but it comes in handy when frustration becomes too much to bear. It only becomes an active option when you fail a level eight times, so you at least have the incentive to try your best several times without just using the guide as an immediate crutch.

    What the Super Guide does is place a computer-controlled Luigi in Mario’s place and has him run through the entire level. Not only does this show you the  progression through the level, if you were stumped, but you also get the option of joining in to retake control whenever you want. If you choose to just watch, Luigi will finish the level completely, at which point you will have the option to either replay the level or skip it entirely.

    In essence, the Super Guide is great because it will encourage you to not quit the game by showing you the best path to beat it. Also, it does not completely cheapen the gameplay experience because you will not be shown any of the secret areas or locations of the star coins. So, you get some help but still have enough incentive to play the level again.
