    The original Super Mario Bros. is a game that has been there for me since childhood. It's always been a nostalgic security blanket, the video game equivalent of comfort food. It's nice and familiar, but not especially challenging or exciting. Super Mario Bros. 35 took this classic and truly gave it new life. I feel excited, tense and downright giddy about this game for the first time since I was a child.

    Super Mario Bros. 35 is not your typical BR game where balance changes come left and right, forcing you to adapt to new metas every few weeks. It’s the kind of game where even if you come to it late or take breaks from it, you aren’t going to be painfully behind the pack. You can pick this up either as a 2D Mario veteran or noob and have fun with it. Unfortunately, this game will only be playable until March 31, 2021, and I hope that isn’t the case.

    Super Mario Battle Royale, as simple as that. It's free and highly addictive but pay attention... you'll need nerves of steel to prevail.

    Combining battle royale with classic Mario gameplay, Super Mario Bros. 35 is an interesting and fresh idea that could use some more depth.

    The classic Super Mario Bros. is getting refreshed because of this game. Even though the core gameplay remains unchanged, Super Mario Bros. 35 create some new multiplayer strategies. But those strategies doesn't always make you feel happy or enjoyable.

    Super Mario Bros. 35 is a flawed game in some ways while offering something new and unique and a whole lot of fun in others.

    Despite everything Super Mario Bros. 35 offers and the fun it provides, it's the lack of security in the investment of time that players make that overshadows the experience. While it's fun on its own, a big part of its appeal is situated in how much fun it is to unlock options and sink more time into it, which will amount to nothing in March - and in that light, this game is difficult to recommend outside of a few brief sessions.

    Best game ever dragged down entirely by balancing issues (in part due to the game being in the early stage still).

    Best game ever dragged down entirely by balancing issues (in part due to the game being in the early stage still).
    There's a voting system for the stages that will appear, and at the beginning of the run, you'll encounter endless 1-2s, 1-1s and 2-2s. There's a warp at the end of 2-2, which lets you chose from 3 levels taken from the pool of stages that got votes. If you encounter a later level, the lack of incentive to complete later levels makes it so that looping 2-2 - 1-2 is the route taken by many players. You may only encounter harder levels later on in the run, after a whole lot of the same few levels.
    It's not only a problem with stages that repeat, but ennemies as well. I've won multiple times, yet I've encountered bullet bills only once.
    The voting system needs to get fixed, or there needs to be some matchmaking added.

The concept fits pretty good for this game and the execution is mostly excellent. There are only two downsides with this, namely the absurd length of the matches, which asks a lot of endurance from the player and the fact, that it's going to be gone after March 2021, which is a shame, since this is still a stellar battle royale game with tons of potential just like Tetris 99. Awesome game. Expand

    I respect Nintendo because they love experiments. Some experiments, however, should stay on the drawing board. One of those is Super MarioI respect Nintendo because they love experiments. Some experiments, however, should stay on the drawing board. One of those is Super Mario Bros. 35, an 8-bit peg awkwardly hammered into a battle royale hole.

    This game is an attempt to bottle the magic of Tetris 99. This time, however, the concept falls flat. SMB35 doesn't know what it wants to be. An exercise in nostalgia for people who grew up with the NES? A challenge for competitive players? A call to action for speedrunners? It's all of those things, but they're all getting in the way of each other.

    For example: one of the joys of good multiplayer games is their forgiveness: a mistake is an opportunity for a glorious comeback. But at its heart, the first Super Mario is a cruelly unforgiving game from the 80s, where a missed jump can instakill you. So in SMB35 you can play great, only to get kicked out because of a single misstep.

    Even games that are not forgiving, like Fortnite, give you an opportunity to spectate games when you get kicked out. Spectating games in SMB35, however, only makes its flaws more obvious. Once the bottom-tier players have killed themselves by jumping in a pit, and the medium-tier players have eventually been sieved out, a small bunch of Super Mario veterans gets stuck into a boring tug-of-war. They know every secret block and hidden passage, and are used to cope with the game's infamous inertia since they were in primary school. They go on and on, until one of them runs out of time, or makes a fatal mistake. It's extraordinary unexciting to watch, and it doesn't make you want to get better at the game. Sure, you might put in the effort to become a Super Mario Bros master. But why, when you could play a modern Mario game instead, or a modern battle royale?

    When I heard that SMB35 it's a limited-time release, I was disappointed. I don't like Nintendo's trend of creating artificial scarcity by taking games off the market. In the case of this game, however, I don't think that I'll miss when it's gone. It sure looked like a good idea on paper, but it's too awkward in practice.
