    Need recommendations!

    Okay, so I'm really lost here.

    I bought a copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii and I was very impressed with it. It's 2D side-scrolling platforming in all it's glory.

    So, I need recommendations on similar/better games of the same genre and somewhat similar gameplay to NSMBW.

    Any idea?

    I read some reviews about these games:

    Donkey Kong Country Returns
    Wario Land: The Shake Dimension

    Do you think these games are good?

    Donkey Kong Country Returns is awesome! Very much like the old SNES games. You should get it.

    Also look into Kirby's Return to Dreamland, Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition & Metroid Other M.

    Sorry, but I haven't played the SNES DKCR. Are you sure about Kirby? It seems to me like a "childish" game. And I thought Metroid Other M was a FPS?

    I've played SMG 1&2 and they were terrific. I'll try Rayman Origins on your suggestion. (coz there's a limit to how many games I can buy actually, 3 to be exact.)

    Other M is part FPS part side scrolling shooter. There's more side scrolling action than FPS though.

    And Kirby is great, it's not really much more childish than Mario :P

    Don't be limited at 3. Make it 4 !

    NSMB
    Origin Rayman
    Kirky returns to DreamLand
    Sonic Color


    replace Sonic Color with Mario Kart , if you want to play on-line worldwide competition, sometimes

    I wish I had the money to make it 4. So the 3 I'll be buying are DKCR, Wario Land and Rayman Origins.

    @SNES_Master Sorry, but retro's just not my preference I saw the games that come with it, and I've played all of them. The only one I liked was SMB 3.

    :P no problem, just throwing out a few suggestions. IMO the best games that seems to fit your criteria (ie being similar to NSMB Wii) would definitely be Donkey Kong Country Returns and Kirby's Return to Dreamland. Even if you've never play the old SNES games they're based off (but not remakes of) you'll still probably like them. I'd say at least rent them...or maybe watch some video reviews online lol.
