First, it must be said that you shouldn't get this game unless you've played and enjoyed the main game, "New Super Mario Bros. U". Super Luigi appears as downloadable content for that game, even though it's a standalone title as well. The only advantage to getting it as a disc is if you need to save space or if you'd prefer to be able to resell it individually at a later time.

The game is classic side-scrolling Mario style fun in the same vein as the original NES games, much like all New Super Mario games. To be more precise, they should be calling these "Retro Super Mario Bros." because that's exactly what they are.

The Luigi game brings back nearly all of the levels of the Mario counterpart but remixes them into all-new designs that are made about half as long, but with slightly harder sections. It was actually cool to play both games back to back to see all the same familiar levels redone in completely new challenging ways. People who've played the first will be used to this enough to be able to do well, but the game may feel incredibly hard to those new to the series. As an expert gamer, in some ways I found this version easier simply because the levels were over so soon. Don't let the short length scare you from buying this, though. There are still about 80 levels, 3 star coins to find per level, multiple paths within the levels, and plenty of replay in going back to find everything you missed. At the budget price it's a pretty good value.

The main drawback to the game is just the quick pace of play if you're in the mood for something more laid back. This game is absolutely out to kill you at every turn. You need to be on your toes and ready for the most unexpected and occasionally frustrating deaths.

I pre-ordered this without a thought because I loved New Super Mario Bros. U. Perhaps that was my first mistake. I love platforming games and have since playing the original Mario Bros. since the 1980's. The reason why I was disappointed with this game was simply because it wasn't what I expected from Nintendo's Mario franchise. What I wanted was 8 new worlds with all new levels. After all, the game description did say over 80 new levels. Instead, this is what you get:

* All the worlds are the same from New Super Mario Bros. U (Acorn Plains, Layer Cake Desert, etc.). I was expecting new worlds with completely new levels just for Luigi. I was most disappointed with this.

* Most of the cut scenes are the same (minor tweaks based on the lack of Mario as a playable character)

* Each level in each world is a re-hash of the original (although some do feel completely different)

* Almost every level you only get 100 seconds to complete it. There are no checkpoint flags and the levels are short. I don't understand this design decision as I like to take my time and not feel rushed through a game. I like to figure out the best path and the best way to grab Star Coins instead of just plowing through a level. You can argue this adds to the challenge (and it does) but I don't care as I personally don't like speed runs.

* Luigi's handles differently than Mario. He can jump higher and "float" down after a jump. He soars through the air compared to Mario. This makes completing the levels more fun and I do like this change of controls. The amount of ground Luigi can cover in a short amount of time is amazing. Perhaps this is why there is a 100 second time limit (which I still dislike).

"New Super Luigi U" is downloadable content for "New Super Mario Bros. U", staring Luigi rather than Mario. Two months after its first appearance in the Nintendo eShop, priced at $19.99, Nintendo has released the game as a retail boxed version at $29.99, ten dollars more. The DLC version requires you to have the "New Super Mario Bros. U" disk in the Wii U to play this extra content. Obviously, the boxed version can be played as a stand-alone title.

Please note: Mario does not appear at all as a playable character. After beating the game, you can play as Luigi using the standard physics of his brother.

To put it kindly, the Wii U has had a rough first year. The sales have simply not been there, and Nintendo is fighting tooth and nail to get the install base up for their new machine. One of the key factors has been lack of software titles. Nintendo skipped the full blown dog and pony show of E3, instead issuing a Nintendo Direct (an online presentation of the new software titles that the company was launching). In April 2013, we first learned about "New Super Luigi U", a full blown game starring Luigi. To say we were surprised due to "New Super Mario Bros. U" had jut launched November 2012 is putting it lightly.

However, this isn't the whole story. "New Super Luigi U" straddles the fence between a "brand new game" and an extensive "downloadable content" addition to an already existing game. I personally believe we have gotten a retail version of "NSLU" for a two fold purpose: this DLC is long enough to merit a stand-alone release, and, much more importantly, acts as a stop-gap release in preparation for the all important Christmas season for the admittedly very slim library of Wii U games that have been available in its first year.
