The best "Super Mario" game I've played

The Good

It had amazing graphics and sound. The story was very humorous and thrilling. The battles were challenging, especially the boss battles. I enjoyed each setting. There were many hidden treats, such as Link, Samus, Yoshi, the Lazy Shell, a casino, Yoshi's Island, and a battle in another dimension against Culex. You could fight as Bowser, Princess Toadstool, Geno, or Mallow along with Mario. There were enemies from almost every other Mario game. The game had many RPG elements, such as level-ups, many items, the ability to use three different characters in battle, many special attacks, and strange characters.

The Bad

It would have been better if you could use all five characters in battle. You have to control Mario outside of battle; it would have been better to control other characters. Some boss battles could be frustrating.

The Bottom Line

The first and best Mario RPG. A great adventure. One of the classics.
