Summary

A great game - possibly the best Mario Game ever!

The Good

Hmm... where to begin? To start, it had the best graphics of it's time. It has excellent music and good controls. There are 96 levels, some are hidden, some are Castle's, Fortresses or Haunted Houses. You get power-ups suck as the Mushroom, Fire flower and Magic Cape. There are lots of new and exciting enemies. Each castle is unique in it's own way and has a cool boss at the end. Each fortress has just as many enemies and traps at the castles and each has 4 Reznior's at the end. There is usually one ghost house in each of the 7 world's, and the ghost houses are usually trickier than the normal levels. You also get to ride on Yoshi and there are different colors of Yoshi that have different specialties. What can I say, great game. If you think it's to easy just try doing it with no power-up's (I completed the whole game this way - no Yoshi, either).

The Bad

Well, the game's great but there are definitely things to add here. One thing is if you play a lot you get to good and it's to easy. But the main thing I don't like about it is okay, you beat Iggy, then Morton, then Lemmy, then Ludwig and it's all cool. Then Roy is exactly the same as Morton. Should he be harder, though? Like maybe it takes 5 jumps to destroy him and he throws punches at you or something? Then Wendy's the same as Lemmy and then Larry, the last boss besides Bowser, is the same as Lemmy, the first boss! Larry should be much harder, though, since he's near the end and Lemmy was way back at the beginning!

The Bottom Line

Go get it and play it. It's fun.
