"Yank and Shank" is strangely more satisfying than a chainsaw bayonet to the face.

Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

What do these ratings mean?

It's been 15 freaking years.  15 years since the last platformer starring Mario in 2-D (Yoshi's Island does not count).

15 years since we saw Sega's rise and fall, Sony's rise and soon-to-be fall, and the birth of !%@# Halo.  3 presidents, and 12 different teams won the Super Bowl.  And finally, this game is here.

New Super Mario Bros is well, pretty fun.  It's not as perfect as Super Mario World, BUT it's not a remake, it's a reimagining... it could be called Super Mario Bros 4 even.  This game builds up on the world of the ORIGIONAL Super Mario Bros (that means no racoon suit and no Yoshi).

80 levels spread over 8 worlds, although you could cut a third of that out if you wanted, really.  This game brings back all of my memories of the 8-bit masterpiece.  They really wanted this game to be better than Super Mario 64 DS.  And they did it.

From the beginning to the end, I never was bored, in fact, my friend had to stop me from playing it all in one go.  Okay, so what now?  What will I do after I win... well, alot.  They put in 240 star coins to find and a different mode in even, so really, you can't get bored.  And you can be Luigi.

Multiplayer minigames are pointless, but are a good way to kill, oh, say 2 minutes.  Online play is fun...which is good.... but it's basic.  Also, some of the items really are pointless... but hey, this made the game fun.

I can't recommend this game higher enough.  Ignore my shortcomings.  Now go get the game, because your princess is in another castle.
