    All the important elements that made "Super Mario World" a classic are preserved in this portable version and should inspire other companies to revive other SNES titles for possible GBA ports.
  2. With even more improvements made over the near-perfect SNES game, Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 deserves the highest honors.
  3. Luigi is difficult to control and it will be a new experience to take him through the whole game, but it definitely adds to the replay value of this already huge game.

    Creative design, excellent challenges and tricky secrets. [Feb 2002, p.152]
  5. A remake of the 1991 release, and it makes a great game even better.
  6. Even if you have never even played SMW, it's still fun to go out and play one of the games that truly defined the Mario franchise. This is a great game.
  7. Super Mario World was a historic move for the Mario franchise that deserves recognition. You certainly won't regret picking this one up.

    I like that you can play 2 different games and don't have to change cartridges.

    This game is kind of good for a remake. It has voices included in the remake, it has more check points in levels, and when you takeThis game is kind of good for a remake. It has voices included in the remake, it has more check points in levels, and when you take damage, you just go big again. Don't know why they removed that in the original game when super mario bros 3 had that mechanic in the game. However the graphics don't look as good as in the SNES game, the graphics aren't as good, neither was the music, and there are no new levels in the game. As for the game itself, I first played smw when I was 7 years old back when I was just getting into mario. The graphics were great(not as good or mind blowing as super mario all stars) and it showed me that graphics can go beyond 8 bit on both consoles and handhelds. Before, I just played the gameboy color and NES but when I was at a hotel playing the SNES, I felt like I was in the future! Eventually I saw other kids playing the gameboy advance version a couple years later at a summer camp and I eventually I got it a couple months later. It took me and my brother alittle over 2 years to beat it and it was mazing when I beat bowser. I even had a dream about beating him the day before. What a masterpiece. Nowdays I say the game is alittle easy for a mario game but back then, it was a great challenge. The only thing I wish the game did was have more mystery to the story. Even super mario bros 1 and 3 had some mystory to it. Expand
