  1. It's a solid title and it'll pay for itself if you can addict your significant other to Dr. Mario's gameplay.
  2. A good addition to the Classic NES Series mostly thanks to the brilliant wireless multiplayer feature, but also because it's a timeless puzzle game.
  3. Great overall game, challenging and fun, you'll be playing for hours.
  4. And like any good puzzle game, Dr. Mario's addictive style of gameplay has stood the test of time; the inclusion of wireless networking capability adds even more value.
  5. Nintendo Power
    Simple, but infinitely fun. [Dec 2004, p.148]

    The game scores well thanks to its simple fun and its quick ability to get into two player mode.
  7. Play Magazine
    It's nice to be able to save high scores in this version. [Dec 2004, p.100]
  8. If you already own the Game Boy Advance version of "Wario Ware", you may want to pass it by since it's included in that game as Dr. Wario.
  9. 45
    Like Mario Bros., the Famicom Mini version of Dr. Mario suffers from a single terrible flaw: it was completely obsolete long before it was ever released.
  10. Cheat Code Central
    In Dr. Mario, its all too obvious that Mario is practicing in Tetris territory without a license.

    Not worth buying. You can get it free in " Wario Ware".
