Summary

A masterpiece among Mario's.

The Good

This was it. This was perfection on the NES. When this came out no videogame had ever been so addictive, so fun, so simply flawless. Graphically this game was the Doom 3 of NES, everything was so colorful and bright and things were much more clearer than other games at the time. The levels were all fantastically made and the map screen was was much better than just jumping from level to level like in previous Mario videogames. The controls are like all Mario games, PERFECT and the mini-games on the map were always fun. The power-ups are to die for and this is the kind of game you turn on and just don't stop.

The Bad

The fact that the only way to save your progress was to get the secret whistle, which is cheating by the way.

The Bottom Line

Without a doubt this is the best Mario videogame and is up there with Punch Out as one of the best NES games of all time. You MUST buy this!
