The Video Game Critic
This version plays extremely well with tight controls and sharp graphics. There are even introductory screens for each stage. Still, I'd give a slight edge to the 5200 version because of its more elaborate animations and richer sound effects. Also, in that version you could send the creatures flying in different directions when you bumped them, but in this version they always just flip over in place. Still, it's hard to find much to fault with this fun, arcade-style title.
Atari Gamer - XL-XE Game Review Edition
It looks very similar to the original arcade version except for a few strange colour choices and plays just as well too. Mario Bros. is one of the best co-op games on the system and a great piece of platform gaming history too. Well worth the price of admission!
