Super Mario Land 2 Review
Overall - 9.4
Super Mario Land 2 - 6 Golden Coins on the Game Boy is a very fun game to play. I did not know that there was a sequel to the first Super Mario Land, but there is. When I played this game, my opinion was that the game played 2 parts: Super Mario Bros on the NES and Super Mario World on the Super Nintendo. At first I thought this game was going to be similar to the first one, but I am surprised that it is not, which is a good thing. I really liked playing this game and I guarantee that you will enjoy this game.
Graphics - 9
The graphics are very interesting, even though it is in black and white, it still is not that bad for a Game Boy game. The effects were slightly bad, but in a way, it plays as the first one and I seemed to not bother me much. What I am talking about is when you are an adult or you have a fire flower and you get hit, the game does not pause for a millisecond, it will keep on playing while you are getting smaller. That is really good because we all know how it feels to get hit in the air and you suddenly mess up and accidentally end up being in the dead zone.
Sound - 8
The sound is kind of disturbing, but I seemed to not care much on a count of how old this game is. First off is the music. The music is okay in some levels. The sound effects really caught my attention. For example, when you get the star in the game, it is not going to play the melody that we all seem to know in all the other Mario games, it would play something different and that is kind of weird to not hear the star melody. Other than that, the rest seems to be good.
Addictiveness - 9
The game is very fun to play, like I said. I would love to keep on playing this game till I get to the end. I would say that it may get addicting, but that is what I like in a game, addiction.
Story - 8
The story connects to the first game. After the first game, Wario comes in and brainwashes everyone in thinking that he is the king. Wario takes over Mario's castle and it is up to Mario to retrieve the 6 golden coins to get to Wario and defeat him. This is surprising because I would never expect to see that Peach and Bowser have nothing to do with this game.
Depth - 8
The game has a lot to offer, surprisingly. For instance, at the end of a level, you get a little bonus game where you can get either a mushroom, 3 lives, a fire flower, and other interesting items and there is no losing to this, which is awesome. Another thing is that the levels look a bit small, like it is zoomed in. Kind of weird, but a long as there is nothing coming from the top is okay. Also, the features in the game, when choosing a level, are a bit different than Super Mario World. You can move around places in the area instead of having to beat every level to reach to where you want to go to. There is another thing that surprised me and it was the check points and the end of a level. They are bells. I thought it was for decoration, but I realized that the bells are the checkpoints. All of this is very interesting as a Game Boy game in my opinion.
Difficulty - 4
The game is not that hard, but it is a little when you are playing it with a keyboard. The enemies are what you would expect: goombas, koopas, and all them piranhas (Ha, tried to make a little rhyme there :P). For the levels, it is not that bad. I do not see anything very hard in the game as far as I am concerned.
Wrap Things Up...
Super Mario Land 2 - 6 Golden Coins is a very interesting game to play, especially when you do not expect it to have some of these things. I highly recommend trying this game out if you have not already. I really enjoy playing this game and I hope that it is the same to you. :)
