Pros
+New Super Mario Bros revolutionizes the traditional 2D Mario experience with a new visual style with classic style gameplay.

+Finish stages by going through different routes and thus finding access to new hidden levels.
+Power ups such as the Fire power return with new additions such as the shell power and tiny mushroom power ups.
+Lots of cameos an easter eggs in terms of level design that often reminds players of old experiences with Super Mario Bros 1, 2, 3 and World.
