SMW features the best art, level design, music, game design and gameplay of the 16-bit generation. It also further established the direction of Marios art style and theme that would continue to this day. Even the release of New Super Mario Bros Wii released in 2010 which was essentially a copy of the SMW formula was not better than this masterpiece. SMW is a timeless gem and the first game I will always recommend to those wanting a retro classic of Super Nintendo. Expand

    in the 80's super mario bros was amazing, then super mario bros 2 was not as good as the first one, super mario bros 3 was one of the bestin the 80's super mario bros was amazing, then super mario bros 2 was not as good as the first one, super mario bros 3 was one of the best games ever made, now nintendo wondered, how can they top that, well they did with super mario world on the SNES. Super Mario World Was amazing. So the plot is different from the other games, instead of being in the mushroom kingdom, mario is on a vacation to dinosaur land. This game introduced yoshi to the series and that's great. now the gameplay is like super mario bros 3, just with yoshi and a cape that lets you fly forever as cape mario, I have to say that I think that cape mario is the best power up in a mario game to date. anyway, all elements from the super mario bros series are in this game, like the flying bricks, mushrooms, and flying koopas, but for some reason there are no goombas to be found. and also there's no flagpole, instead you go through these hill like things to clear a level. the graphics, this games graphics are amazing, it's the SNES's 256 colors that make the characters and the game looks so good. and the music is AWSOME these are some of the catchest songs that i have ever heard in a video game. everything about this game is simply amazing, it's one of the best games ever made.

    This game has a better engine and mechanics than Mario 3, but the enemies are more spaced out in levels, so it's much more open. This takesThis game has a better engine and mechanics than Mario 3, but the enemies are more spaced out in levels, so it's much more open. This takes away the difficulty that 3 had, not that 3 was hard to begin with, but this one is even easier. Expand
