    Great game. Some aspects are missing like going to the left of the screen, at this point you can only go to the right side of the screen. SomeGreat game. Some aspects are missing like going to the left of the screen, at this point you can only go to the right side of the screen. Some animations are kinda slow on my Wii too. But overall a very nice game. Hope they fix those issues on next updates. Expand

    I feel like it's a crime if I don't award Super Mario Bros a perfect 1010. It is by far the most revolutionary game of all time. SimplyI feel like it's a crime if I don't award Super Mario Bros a perfect 1010. It is by far the most revolutionary game of all time. Simply because there would be no video games today without this NES classic. We should also take notice that this game is a heck of a lot of fun. In 1985, Super Mario Bros started the long running side scrolling trend that would dominate the NES library. Stomping on famous enemies, the secrets, the adventurous feel, and the clever level designs were only a hint on why Super Mario Bros is a masterpiece. Expand

There would be no more gaming industry if it wasn't for Super Mario Bros. Classic formula and still challenging, even to this day. True gamers must pay homage. Expand

(Hopefully) And just like many people say, it is definitely one of the best NES games out there... Wait, one of the best games since the beginning of the video game industry. Very fun and addicting, indeed. Although the game is short (Just like most NES games) it still has a very high replay value. Especially multiplayer mode. Playing as Mario or Luigi with a friend, you won't get bored easily. All in all, a really good game for any casual or hardcore gamer. 9 out of 10 from me. Expand

    There's some sort of challenge this game still holds to this day that allows it to engross the player pretty well.
    The graphics may be considered disgusting, but unless if you're a retro fan who doesn't give a fuss about a 16 x 16 display.

    Overall, pick this game up! It's still good til' this day!

    It's amazing how well this game holds up -- and how challenging it can still be to newcomers, more than a quarter-century after its NESIt's amazing how well this game holds up -- and how challenging it can still be to newcomers, more than a quarter-century after its NES release. If you're too young to remember playing this in its original format, or if you just never bothered, you owe it to yourself to experience this classic. I give it an 8 out of 10 based on how it compares to modern games; the graphics of course are blocky, pixelated and of a limited color palette, the variety is a bit limited, and the ending is weak, but the play control is still the gold standard for every single video game that followed. Recommended. Expand

The graphics,The reason why I'm giving this game somewhat of a low score is because it's nothing special. Everything about it is... simple. The graphics, the level design, the story, the music... however, I can recommend this game to anyone who hasn't played any game yet. Hardcore gamers, however, can beat this game in five minutes. No joke. Overall, this game is good, but other games in the franchise are definitely better than this. Expand
