    This one is for the die-hard Mario fans who want something a little harder. 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.

    Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels is an OK game. It is really hard and a bit cheap sometimes which can cause a lot of fustration. It's also too similar to the first game, but still you can get some fun out of the game. Overall, The Lost Levels was OK.

    This game is for the Super Mario player who wants a challenge. 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

    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 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
