There's nothing like rampaging through a horde of Goombas. That is but one of the appeals in "New Super Mario Brothers" for the Nintendo DS, Mario's first new sidescrolling platformer in 16 years. Personally, I think NSMB lives up to expectations as it returns to a retro feel of stomping Koopas, throwing fireballs, and knocking Bowser into lava. The graphics get a 9 out of 10. They're catchy, but not overworked, and smartly bring out the gameplay, which gets a 9.5. Mario has a few new items - a mega-mushroom that makes Mario grow to monster proportions; a mini-mushroom that lets him go in small pipes, run on water, etc; and a blue Koopa shell that the mustachioed plumber can slide around in. The only flaw with the new items is that they are underused, except for the mega-mushroom.
