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

    even better than odyssey, the very many creative worlds, feels fantastic to control, beautiful graphics, first game to have yoshi, when I playeven better than odyssey, the very many creative worlds, feels fantastic to control, beautiful graphics, first game to have yoshi, when I play this game I am ready to have a smile on my face for 1 hour, true odyssey did it but it didn't do it with the amount of excitement and creative level design, I strongly recommend buying a SNES classic Expand

    Super Mario World. Yeah. The very first SNES game and by far tied in #1 with Chrono Trigger. This game is simply amazing. Best Mario gameSuper Mario World. Yeah. The very first SNES game and by far tied in #1 with Chrono Trigger. This game is simply amazing. Best Mario game ever. 96 levels at 300 seconds. Definitly a lot of deaths and practice. But the best.

    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.

    Playing the SNES version on New 3ds for the first time. Some small moments of inspiration in an otherwise uninspired game. After playing SuperPlaying the SNES version on New 3ds for the first time. Some small moments of inspiration in an otherwise uninspired game. After playing Super Mario Brothers 3, level design just does not hold up; too simple and repetitive. Controls are slippery and awkward. I can't help but feel all these positive reviews were written by people who played this as kids, and can't see this game for what it is; a below average platformer. Play SMB3 instead. Expand
