Summary

THE MOST OVERRATED GAME EVER!

The Good

After releasing Super Mario World for the SNES, Nintendo decided to milk it's Mario cow AGAIN and port the stupid game to the GameBoy Advance in 2001.

Since that year, people can play a "classic" wherever they go!

What's good about the game? Maybe in the near future this game will be worth a lot of money and I can sell it and use the money to buy much better games like expansion packs for The Sims 3!

The Bad

Oh my GOD! It's the SAME story, yet joined with new characters like the dinosaur Yoshi! Princess Peach is whisked away by that evil Bowser yet again and since she is too lazy to find a way out herself Mario and Luigi must rescue her. It may not seem to bad, but the designers obviously were unable to come up with a story from previous games. It's like that in EVERY Mario game. Rescue the stupid princess, again and again and again.

The graphics are some of the blandest looking I've ever seen in years. The backgrounds get so repetitive I feel as if I'm playing an Atari 2600 game, which have really repetitive graphics.

The music is also horrible. It loops over and over again before your ears nearly go deaf. The PC Speaker from those old IBM computers in the 80s make much better music.

All of the above things may seem pretty big, but this next one is what kills this game (and pretty much all other Nintendo-developed games). This game, is so FRUSTRATING! It's easy to die, and when Mario touches an enemy for the 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000th time you want to rip the cartridge out of your Game Boy and tear it into pieces! This game was made for children(obviously). If it's frustrating for those of us who are older, then I cannot imagine what it's like for a 8 year old!

The Bottom Line

Please do not play Super Mario World. I cannot stress this enough. Do not play ANY game developed by Nintendo, period. All of them are of abysmal quality. Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing is a much better game than this masochistic piece of garbage, and certainly a lot more fun!
