  • Summary: Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels was originally only available for the Famicom Disk System in Japan and expands on the original with all-new level designs, trickier enemies and obstacles, and secret worlds to explore. For the Mario purist this is the ultimate gaming treat.

    Screw the user score. I know what you might be thinking. Oh, it's just Super Mario Bros., just only harder and have more features and worldsScrew the user score. I know what you might be thinking. Oh, it's just Super Mario Bros., just only harder and have more features and worlds than the original. What you're seeing isn't the case. While also lovable like Super Mario Bros., this isn't going anywhere from getting that 10 score, but hey, it works better than our Super Mario Bros. 2. Expand

It might look and sound the same as the first Mario game, but this is a game with a whole new 8 worlds. I just beat, and it is HARD. I think this is the reason it took so long to get the original 8 bit version released in the states. Japan knows we suck at games, hence the reason we play so many crappy games that hold your hand like Call of Duty. Buy this game. It's only $5. Expand

Some of these levels are very difficult, and it's also a pleasantly long game. There's a lot to like about the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2, but it is going to have the biggest appeal for those who loved the first Mario and want to play a game in the same format, only much harder.

    Okay so when people downloaded this from virtual console alot of people were asking What is this? and Why is this Super Mario bros 2 insteadOkay so when people downloaded this from virtual console alot of people were asking What is this? and Why is this Super Mario bros 2 instead of Super mario bros the lost levels? Let give you the run down. Super Mario bros 2 came out in 1986 for the famicom disk system. The famicom is the japanese nes by the way. It was the same gameplay and same engine as the first super mario game expect that the levels are too hard for anyone to play because originally this game was targeted for advance players who wanted a challenge. Meanwhile nintendo made a game for the disk system known as doki-doki panic and what they did in 1988 was take doki doki panic and slaped it with mario characters and just retitled it super mario bros 2. So that's how we know doki doki panic as super mario bros 2. It was later released in japan in 1992 as super mario U.S.A. That should explain that so back to japan with the disk system game. The game starts at a castle and the turtle just hopping across the screen. If it hit mario at the title screen then players would know how hard the game would be. So if you played the original super mario game then you know how this goes. You go from point a to point b get pass bowser and save the toads and princess toadstool. But now this time the game can be a pain in the neck. Some stages requires you to jump from spring to spring. Go through windy levels. and even go through pipes just to clear the stage otherwise you'll end up in a loop. After you beat the game 8 times you unlock worlds A,B,C, and D. And there even twice as hard as the other levels. The game is a nightmare and one of the most hardest games out there. It's a good game but it's just too hard to play. Expand

    Super Mario Bros 2 has an interesting story behind it. While japan got THIS Super Mario Bros 2, America and Europe got a graphical hack from aSuper Mario Bros 2 has an interesting story behind it. While japan got THIS Super Mario Bros 2, America and Europe got a graphical hack from a game called Doki Doki Panic with some Mario characters and the addition of a run button. It wasn't until 1992 Super Mario All-Stars that Americans and Europeans got to play the original Super Mario Bros 2 in the form of Super Mario Bros: The lost levels, which is what i'm going to review now. Why did we get a total different Mario 2?...let's find out.

    STORY: Koopa kidnaps princess Toadstool, Mario must go save her.

    PRESENTATION: To put it simply, both versions of the game (Famicom and SNES) have the exact same music, graphics and sprites as the original Super Mario Bros. Oh of course some things have been redesigned and re-colored, but aside from that...it's the exact same.

    GAMEPLAY: Just like with the presentation and story, the game really didn't change in terms of gameplay, it's pretty much a copy paste of the original game..., but with one little difference...the game is extremely DIFFICULT!!!.

    First of all the level design is otter horse ****, it's loaded with unfair challenges, pain on the *** enemy placement, cryptic hidden blocks and new gimmicks like the wind or the new types of enemies like the red piranha plants, that come out of their pipe regardless if you are standing on the pipe, and evil mushrooms make this game a serious challenge to overcome.

    I'll give this game this much: at least when you get a Game Over you don't start at the beginning of the game like in the first game, but that's the only "fair" thing it has going for it.

    And that's it...no really that's all the things that the game adds to the Mario formula. There's no new power-ups, no new bosses or different enemies, there's nothing here, just a copy and paste job of the original game, but with a huge step up on the difficulty side. With that said i'll give the game a 6/10, if you want a good challenge go for it, otherwise stay away.

    Remember in my Super Mario Bros. review that I said the game was way to simple? Well this game is anything but that! I gave Super Mario Bros1Remember in my Super Mario Bros. review that I said the game was way to simple? Well this game is anything but that! I gave Super Mario Bros1 a low score mainly because of how simple it was. But this game... it did nothing to improve the previous game's flaws! It's also one of the hardest games I've ever played. Harder than Zelda 2, harder than Megaman 4, and harder than ghouls and... okay maybe not that hard, but it's still pretty challenging. Aside from that, it's the same game. Just harder. I can only recommend this game to people who are up for a challenge, or Mario enthusiasts who love just about any Mario game. Expand
