Summary

The king of platforms is back!

The Good

Lively graphics; Simple platform gameplay made unique; Very good, varied music; Just pure and simple fun!

The Bad

Some may find it too childish.

The Bottom Line

Ahh, good old Mario. He's back with a game that proves yet again that Mario just keeps getting better. It has all the quality gameplay of the first three in the series, plus more. The graphics are really unique and have taken a huge step forward due to the 16-bit power of the SNES. They're lively, humorous and just fit the game perfectly. For those who aren't familiar with the series, the gameplay, like with its predecessors, is the typical platform gameplay, involving koopas, and all kinds of strange creatures who just can't stop hunting you. The gameplay is very very polished and always feels very unique in every way. Let's not forget the music. Ranging from the happy, up-lifting forest tunes, to the dark and chilly haunted house melody, it just never fails to amuse you. Unless you think anything with too bright colors should only played by children, this is one game you'll just love, no matter what your age.
