Summary

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins is the best Mario game I've ever played.

The Good

This game has much better graphics than the original Mario even though it doesn't have color. With new secret levels, this game has been much improved. There are many new baddies for you to kill and the final few levels are actually a challenge. This is the first Mario game with Wario in it. There's all sorts of new weapons the enemy uses to kill you and you have to stay alive. There are less levels though they make up for it in graphics and characters. This game is by far my favorite game for GameBoy and GameBoy Color. The only Mario game I like better is Super Mario 64. This game challenges you to uncover its secrets and earn the highest score you can. You can also save your game. With newer, harder bosses, this game has exceeded all expectations set for a Mario game.

The Bad

There's really not much to not like in this game. The only things I really don't like are the sound, and no color. The sound is great except in a few levels and those I don't like. Of course, being for Gameboy, it's black and white. That's really not that bad because it's a Mario game but I think they should've waited to put this game on Color or Advance.

The Bottom Line

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins is an excellent Mario game. It exceeds all expectation with new characters, bosses, and weapons. There is great sound in most of the levels and expanded gameplay. Unfortunately, there is no color but that's not all bad. There are some excellent new levels for you to play in and secret levels you have to find. This is a game that you could play over and over if only you had the time. You can save your game so you can start right back where you started. You can win prizes and do much, much more. This game is a gem Mario game with so few flaws that it's scary. An excellent Mario game and I hope you will all play it.
