  • Summary: This second installment of the mashup of classic Nintendo games features challenges from later NES games like Super Mario Bros. 3, Kirby’s Adventure and Metroid. Just like NES Remix, the sequel includes stages from the original games with new challenges, as well as modified stages that introduce new elements. Expand

    With bite size nibbles of the most challenging or salient aspects of what made these games great, NES Remix 2 also delivers more iconic and well-recognized games from the library that made Nintendo famous.

    Simply stated, NES Remix 2 is a real sequel’s sequel, with stronger games, weirder remixes and better bonuses. Players who’d like an interactive history lesson and anyone with fondness for old-school Nintendo could do far worse than romancing these ROMs.

    It revived my love for a number of classics, and showed me precisely how and why they worked so well. There's life and depth to these titles, and that shines particularly well when they're so artfully and cleverly jumbled together.

    Another fun and massive minigame collection for hardcore gamers. Maybe lacks in the innovation side, but still a very addictive experience.

    Narrowly surpasses its predecessor. [Issue#148, p.126]

    I enjoyed my time with NES Remix 2, but it’s ultimately a shallow experience.

    The thing that really crushes the game, though, is this: There are "convenient" links to the eShop to buy the full versions of the included games from within NES Remix 2 itself. Absolutely not, Nintendo. Absolutely not.

    This is everything, as advertised! The "remix" are a bunch of mini games (WarioWare style) set in classic Nintendo worlds, that are completed with an emphasis on speed. I'm having a blast going through old SMB3 levels and having a fresh take on Dr Mario, Kirby, etc. Really fun, and also really social with the Mii Universe posts and stamps and tie-ins. Really good job, Nintendo! This is a download I'm really glad I made. Collapse

    Imagine that you bought a game, but after you finished a level it would link you to older version of the game but the full version. Nintendo quality.
