    To say this is not the most important gam ever created would be foolish. Not only is it fun, but it single handedly revitalized the video game industry after the crash of 1983.

    Super Mario Bros was the first console game I've played as kid, there's not much to say,best game.
    I remember that there was duck haunt, bundled, and every time I sat close to the TV with the gun to win; i was such a cheater haha..

    I Wish this didn't exist... JUST KIDDING! this game is fun. it is.
    The only problem is that Nintendo aparentally doesn't know how to make sequels for it
    and now, its being PRAISED!
    Call of Duty does the same....everyone hates on it. But its still fun, a fact that we cannot ignore.
    but then Mario gets praised like THE ONLY GAME. THE ONE AND ONLY. for **** sake, sometimes Gaming just ****s up.

    When I saw this on amazon I cried with joy, my first game, reborn, the smaller screen is a small price to pay for me to re-enter my first ever game, and after all this time prove that my skiils as a gamer are diminished because I can't complete it anymore.

    This is the game that started everything. And, as always, it's incredible. It still holds up today as the most famous and important video game ever. The best in the Classic NES series, the game set the standards for all 2D platformers.

    Not only you can play the first super mario bros on PC, NES, or gamecube, you can play it on an amazing handheld and with amazing gameplay! But toad gave me the finger...

    This a great game for those who are into old school gaming but don't have the appropriate console to play the original. There is nothing new about this version from the original. A great new classic! 9/10.

    it's not the version that I want to talk about, but... The latest time I played this game was two years ago on my phone with an external controller, and I enjoyed like when I play it 20 or 25 years ago!

  1. Super Mario Bros. was, is, and always will be a gaming masterpiece. Its oft imitated, yet rarely equaled combination of gameplay responsiveness, superb level design and visual flourish, combined with that special loving touch that only Miyamoto seems able to wield, makes it one of those rare games that seems to transcend time.
  2. For purists, this is the cream of the crop in retro goodness. [June 2004, p.138]
  3. Pocket Games
    This is it, the game that brought video games in America back from the dead. [Summer 2004, p.15]
