Why not? 0

Why not? You know you’ve written too many reviews in your lifetime when you lie in bed at night and the words for a review for a random game begin to materialize in your head. The problem with this scenario is that once the flow of text starts to leak into your consciousness, then your night of sleep is lost, and the cogs in your brain spiral with one line after another, despite the knowledge that going to sleep would be the wiser move for your real life. So this is the result of one night’s ins...

A plumber out to save a Princess... it works! 0

 Super Mario Bros. is a platforming game where you take control of a character by the name of Mario. You are in the Mushroom Kingdom and are set out to rescue Princess Peach who was captured by King Koopa. Enemies consist of Goombas, Koopas, pipe plants, and many others. The main plot of this game is to jump from platforms, and stomp on enemies heads to kill them. You can also go down some greens pipes, to collect coins or take a different route. You can collect coins within the game, and 100 co...

Just Like You Remember It 0

Mario? Check. Luigi? Check. Princess? Check. Bowser? Check. Toad? Check. Super Mario Bros. on the Game Boy Advance is like playing it on the Nintendo Entertainment System. They kept the same graphics, same gameplay. This NES classic has now come to a whole new generation of gamers. I find no fault in this NES classic ported to the GBA....

After all these years, Super Mario Bros. is still a great game. 0

Super Mario Bros. is still fun to play after all these years. This game is what made Mario famous and yet mysterious. I remember playing this game when I was only 2. Ever since this game came out for NES, I've had dreams and memories of this game. It was always an old childhood favorite of mine; but because time has caught up with my NES, I had to sell it with all its games. When I got a Wii and saw the game for Virtual Console, I knew that I was going to buy it without a doubt. It might be old,...

This Wasn't in My Job Description: A Review of Super Mario Bros. 0

Well, here it is. One of the best-selling, most easily recognizable games of all time: Super Mario Bros.Loosely based on "Donkey Kong," this was the first game that gave our overweight Italian friend his independent shove toward mainstream stardom, as well as an official name: Mario. Countless sales, sequels, and photo shoots later, it's no wonder he's addicted to shrooms.Let's dawn our overalls and shoot some fireballs, 'cause boys and girls, review time calls.STORY 4/5This is just one of those...

The game that saved the (videogame) world 0

Super Mario Bros may be the game that saved the games industry, the industry as it applied to the common man at least. Bad games and even worse business decisions had sunk the console industry and arcade in the United States in the early 1980s. Gaming on computers was poised to do well enough, but in danger of being a niche market only. In 1985 Nintendo released their home console, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), and this launch title, one of the greatest of all time in the platforming ...

MacDaddy of Video Gaming 0

Front cover.Super Mario Brothers is a classic, without a doubt. The game is superb and justifies the prestige and pedigree to which Mario games are recognized for. If you have five dollars, spend it. You won't regret it.Mario's gameplay is finite and solid. Jumps made are precise, and just feel good. Many platformers have copied Mario's style, but they just can't compete. There's a fluidity to the jumping, and a feeling that cannot be mimicked or copied.Artistically, the colors are saturated, bu...

The Real Musher-Man 0

This was the First "Real" Mario game out. True we had "Mario Bros." and "Donkey Kong" already out, but they where not THE Mario game. This was a first for a lot of Characters that we know and love. Some of the biggest names are Peach, Toad, and Bowser. In this game, Bowser or King Koopa, kidnapped Peach Toadstool, the Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom. Now Mario Mario and Luigi Mario have to go and save her. These two plumbers are our heroes of the game. There are only three power ups to help you...

Still Great--Twenty Years Later 0

Mushrooms, plumbers, and goombas provided for a magical first experience with video games.  Regrettably, Mario wasn't my true first video game, but it's one of the first games that really resonated with me. Mario's side-scrolling adventure just felt so fresh, and the accurate controls made the portly plumber a dream to control.  I'm pretty sure that I first beat Mario back when I was four or five, but I'm almost certain that I made use of the game's warp pipes.  For my most recent play-through, ...

The perfect game. 0

There is not a single bad thing to say about Super Mario Bros. There aren't many new good things to say about it, either, since literally everyone (and also their mother) has played the game over the years, and loved it. You don't have to try to explain why SMB is so brilliant; it just is. And everybody knows it already!But... seriously, just why is Super Mario Bros. so good?The answer lies in its design.There's not a single line of code in Super Mario Bros. that is misplaced. It's all wired dow...

First video game I ever played. It still lives on with me 20 year 0

Super Mario Bros. was the first video game I ever played. It was back in 1989, I was 2 years old, it was my 11 year old sister's Nintendo and game. We were sitting on the couch together, I was watching her play, and she gave me a turn.I figured out how to run, stop, and jump on enemies, but I never quite could figure out how to simultaneously run and jump over a gap in the ground. I only played another 2 turns, doing the same thing, not getting passed the same gap, and I really didn't really pla...

Great Port 0

Super Mario Bros. on the Game Boy Advance is just like you remember it. It is a very well made port to the GBA. Mario takes on Bowser and tries to rescue the princess for his clutches. Mario can become big, throw fireballs, become invincible, and earn an extra-life. Two players? Add Luigi and you take turns playing. This is a very well made port to a video game classic, and I had no trouble playing it on my Game Boy Advance....

A legend that still holds up today 0

Most people reading this review have probably played this game at least once. However, in case that statement is false, well it should not be. The fact that I still play Super Mario Bros. at least twenty years after I first tried it speaks volumes to how great the game holds up. In another twenty years, chances are that I will still feel the urge to play this game.    There have been many Mario "clones" over the years trying the duplicate the success this title has enjoyed. But there is  Perf...
