I played this at a local gamestop. Even my graphics-whore brother was impressed

I agree. Nintendo really dropped the ball this time.

Nintendo is too attached to the style of Mario. I could possibly see them making a Wario game in this style though.

I will contest there's still more they could do to spruce up 2D mario, but honestly I'm completely happy with how NSMBU looks. These new Rayman titles are good games but the platforming isn't anywhere near as tight as a Mario game, with the edges of platforms being such detailed objects it can be hard to know precisely where the edge collision is. If NSMBU's platforms and artwork were as busy as this, it wouldn't be able to play how it does, the pixel precise nature of the gameplay would be muddled.
