I'm Living a Dream: A Review of Super Mario Bros. 2 0

America waited with much anticipation for the sequel to the smash hit original. Japan felt it was too hard for American audiences. America retaliates by bombing Japan and cutting off all trade for some time. Japan retaliates by giving us a dumbed-down version of their sequel and slapping it on Super Mario All-Stars.Yes, readers, I am referring to none other than Super Mario Bros. 2. STORY 2.5/5After his doped-up adventure in Super Mario Bros., Mario has retired for the night, fully equipped with...

Doki Doki is Missing 0

Super Mario Bros. 2? This game was 100% different then any of the Mario Bros. Games that we have seen! Why? Well, after Super Mario Bros. 2 came out in Japan, Nintendo thought it was to hard for the US. To help everyone out side of Japan have a Part 2, Nintendo did some thing weird. They took another game and replaced the Heroes with Mario and Friends! The game is called, “Yume Kojo: Doki Doki Panic”. You’ll have to read the review to learn more. :PWell, the game just starts. You really don’t kn...

Is this really Mario? 0

Super Mario Bros. 2 is a simpler game than The Lost Levels (the true sequel to Super Mario Bros.)--but it takes the series in a completely different direction.  There's a reason for that, and it's not because Miyamoto was on acid.  Rather, Super Mario Bros. 2 was based on an entirely different game called, Doki Doki Panic.  Nintendo liked the concept behind the game, and decided to do a character swap.  Instead of the Lost Levels, we got this retooled version of Doki Doki Panic in the U.S.  Does...

Super Mario Bros. 2 is a sequal to the 1985 smash hit 0

This is the second game in the Mario series to be released in North America. Your main goal is to travel across 8 worlds with all new enemies different from the first game, as well as 4 playable characters. You can play as Mario who controls the same, and Luigi whos has a fluttering jump, then Toad who isn't very playable at all, and lastly, the Princess Peach who has a glide after she jumps.  The basic gameplay looks similar to the first game, but has you jumping on enemies then picking them up...

Not a Mario Game, but Still Awesome 0

Super Mario Bros 2 is actually a game called Doki Doki Panic. When Nintendo brought Doki to the United States, changes to the game were made and the Mario Characters and name was added. That being said, it was created by the same team at Nintendo and while it is a huge departure from other Mario games, it is a great game in its own right. Having the ability to choose between 4 different characters, each with different running speeds, jump heights and jump floatiness, and special abilities is uni...
