  • Summary: The story begins with the nefarious Bowser and his koopa horde plotting a diabolical scheme to capture the famous defenders of the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario and Luigi. The plan is successful, and with Mario and Luigi out of the picture, who else is going to save the day but Peach? After a lengthy intro cutscene depicting the ill goings-on at the castle, you'll take control of Peach as she makes her way to a showdown with Bowser and the rescue of the plumbing pair.

  1. With great core gameplay, tons of unlockables, a cast of memorable characters, and an audio visual feast for the senses, Super Princess Peach is a must play. [JPN Import]
  2. While it presents nearly perfect platforming, primarily young ones and frantic fans will favor the game.
  3. A solid 2D platformer. Because of its overall easiness, it is best suited for younger players and beginners. [Aug 2006, p.51]
  4. I'd definitely recommend that you play Super Princess Peach. You're very likely to enjoy it if you are a fan of sidescrollers.
  5. Super Princess Peach is a forgiving and entertaining slice of a game that’s at its most successful when it evokes the same feeling as a two-dimensional Mario. [Christmas 2005, p.103]
  6. Younger DS owners, especially female ones, will lap it right up, finding the challenge level and frequent save points a good fit.
  7. Super Princess Peach is as average as they come.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Princess Peach must rescue Mario and Luigi. Peach has her own game in this game. Plus it also has emotions of Peach. When Peach cries it makes the plants grow. When Peach is raged the ices melt. When Peach is happy she spins the windmill, so it can open. I beat the whole game. I've rescued Mario and Luigi. Princess Peach is my favorite character. They also have fun mini games too. Like puzzles, and Toad mini games. Princess uses her umbrella to attacked enemies. I loved this game very much!!! This game is great. Expand

    I recently got this game because it seemed interesting and I was happy that Nintendo published a game with Peach as the main character and not Mario. The characters are cute and the graphics are pretty good, but the graphics, as I've also read before, seem to fit a GBA just fine, which questions if this game was meant for the DS in the first place. But the game is fun, and there are a lot of things to collect. Expand

    Super Princess Peach is an enjoyable platformer with some neat ideas. Unfortunately it does suffer from some very irritating level design. Throughout each level there are a number of totally unnecessary warp pipes that can take you to different parts of the level. But these serve absolutely no purpose other than to confuse and frustrate (which they do immensely). Also, the developer has gone for (what I like to call) kitchen-sink game design, and thrown in lots of extra things to fatten the game up, ie. loads of collectable items...... Expand

    To be honest with this game, I got it for my birthday, I liked it so far with the vibe powers allowing Peach to run through the level without having to jump at ? boxes and collecting power-ups, such as the Mushroom, Fireflower, etc. Anyways I liked how Perry lets Peach absorb enemies for their Vibe energy. I also liked how Perry lets Peach attack without having to jump on people's heads, it was annoying to me in the Mario games. Sadly, a lot of the levels were too easy and too hard for me. I also had to free all the toads from every single level in order to face the Final Boss.

    Positives:Peach is finally the main character, Vibe moves are easy to use, attacks are more convenient with Perry around.

    Negatives:Perry's backstory interferes with Peach's storyline, some sexist undertones, and some levels are too easy and too hard.

    Ugh. Way too many collectibles, and in order to actually complete the game 100%, you're forced to go back through it all over again, back through each level just to get some stupid puzzle pieces. Great graphics, and cute music, but gameplay gets very tedious and sometimes painful. Expand
