Äußerst simpel, aber ungemein Spaß bringend. Wenn Eure Wii-Punkte nur noch für einen Titel aus dem NES-Sortiment reichen, dann ist dies Euer Spiel! Gesetzt den Fall, Ihr habt die acht abwechslungsreichen Welten unverbrauchter Jump and Run-Genialität nicht schon im Schrank stehen.

Virtual Console Reviews
This game needs no introduction, this was really where it all began with our favourite Italian plumber. Having been originally bundled free with the NES console in 1985 Super Mario Bros. Proved to be a killer app at the time helping to shift millions of consoles. There have since been many imitators but none have quite captured the original Mario magic except perhaps the excellent sequels of course!

Dozens if not hundreds of imitators have tried to improve or revolutionize the formula that Nintendo spawned back in 1985; some have failed, while others have come close. Even with the most successful of these attempts, coming back to play Super Mario Bros. is still just as much fun as ever, and truly makes you appreciate how games were designed in the past – and how they should always be made in the future.

Dozens if not hundreds of imitators have tried to improve or revolutionize the formula that Nintendo spawned back in 1985; some have failed, while others have come close. Even with the most successful of these attempts, coming back to play Super Mario Bros. is still just as much fun as ever, and truly makes you appreciate how games were designed in the past – and how they should always be made in the future. 500 Wii points is an absolute no-brainer. This adventure is an absolute must for any gamer’s Virtual Console collection.

Super Mario Bros. was the face that launched a million consoles back in the mid-'80s, and its amazingly memorable graphics and sound, along with its still-sharp gameplay, make it stand out among the rest of the Virtual Console releases. At a cost of five dollars, this is a great purchase if you're feeling nostalgic, but even if you're too young to remember the game's first release, you'll find that this is one of those rare classics whose gameplay is good enough to still be fun after all these years.
