Super Mario Bros 2 Featured Review

Super Mario Bros 2 Review by: sonicthehedgeho.. - 9/10


Ah Super Mario Bros. 2  I remember when I first played this game I thought it was amazing for it's time and thought it was an amazing sequel to the cult classic Super Mario Bros because at the time I was only 6 and I didn't know about the Super Mario Bros 2 on the Japanese Famicom so I considered it to be the sequel to the first game. Either way even now I still love the Super Mario Bros 2 that we got here in North America and I actually prefer it over the Japanese Super Mario Bros 2 even thought it was a copy of the game Doki Doki Panic from Japan I still liked it as it had a new story and new gameplay to it which made it more fun to play. The really funny thing about this game is the ending but we will talk about that later in the review. So without further ado let's get a started!

Graphics: 10 out of 10

You can just tell from starting this game that the graphics have taken a huge step up from the first Super Mario Bros game as Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Peach all show lots of quality in how they look compared to how they look originally even the enemies themselves have alot more facial features and moving/attacking features. The backgrounds and objects also have alot more visual detail as well as features to them such as having to pluck the vegetables out of the ground to throw them towards the enemies. The mini-bosses also have alot more detail added to them as you can clearly see when they are going to attack, for example with Birdo you know she is going to attack when she opens her mouth and prepares to shoot an egg out of it so you can tell that this game had alot more visual effects added to it. Great job so it earns a perfect 10 out of 10

Sound: 7 out of 10

While there are only 3 songs in this game so that's why I took of 3 points but with how great the songs are I consider that at least at 7 points. Now the three songs that play are: the song in the overworld of the game, the song for the mini-bosses in the game, and the final boss music in the game. The songs are really great as the overworld theme is like a feeling of adventure is a strange place and really sets the mood of the game right, the mini boss theme gives you a feeling of distress where you feel you have to beat this mini-boss and keep moving on towards the end, the final boss theme gives the feeling that after all the tough battles you've faced you're finally ready to take down the main point of evil in this game and it makes you feel powerful and ready to fight. So this deserves at least a 7 out of 10 even though there are only 3 songs in the game.

Story: 10 out of 10

The story of this game is kind of interesting with how the put it together as basically when you start the game up and select your character (Mario, Toad, Luigi, Peach) you fall from the sky and finally onto ground where you see a single door and once you enter through it you see a land with mysterious enemy's all around for example: Shy Guys, Mouser's which are Mouse mini-bosses with bombs, Ninji's, and Birdo's which are the bosses in a few levels each world. The main point of the game is to go and defeat the main point of evil in the land a giant frog named Wart, YEAH that's right BOWSER isn't the main villain of the game that is definitely a good change made to this game so you're not finishing Bowser off again. Now you remember when I said this game is interesting how they put the story together well you'll see what I meant now because after you beat Wart the final boss of the game you see a little credit roll with Mario and everyone else waving in celebration that the land is now save but then you see that Mario is asleep in bed and everything that happened was just a dream he had and the celebration was showed in a little story bubble over Mario's head. It's very funny when you see the ending and see that Mario is asleep cause it's like "wow you sure had the celebration done fast". It is a very great and interesting story which makes you interested in the game and makes you want to keep playing and finish the game so this once again earns a perfect 10 out of 10.

Difficulty: 7 out of 10

Super Mario Bros 2 on NES isn't the hardest game on the NES but it can be annoying and hard at some parts in the game as you can have multiple enemies that will come and gang up on you so you really have to move fast and think about your attacks before you actually rush in and try to finish off your enemies, if you rush in and just start attacking without any thought at all I can guarantee that you will either lose a life, fall into a pick, or barely even survive at all. One of the main reasons why the difficulty is higher is you only start of with 2 hit points and I think the maximum that you can have is 4 and the only way to earn more hit points is to get a magic potion and use it to make a door appear and hopefully a mushroom will be in there if there is one in there then you can grab it and you'll earn an extra hit point. However once you complete that level it will revert back to only 2 hit points at the start of the next level. If you take the time to understand the layout of the levels and the enemy's as well as choosing which character will help you out the most in the level you'll be playing since all 4 of them have different qualities which are (Mario= Normal Speed, Normal Jump), (Luigi= Slow Speed, High Jumping Ability's), 
(Toad= Poor Jumping, Normal Speed, and fast plucking of vegetables/plants), 
(Peach= Slow Speed, Can levitate in mid-air for a few seconds after jumping). So with all the choices you have to choose which person will benefit you the most which does make this game slightly easier so a 7 out of 10 is what I'm giving the difficulty level of this game.

Depth: 9 out of 10

The game is 7 worlds long each having 3 stages per world EXCEPT for world 7 which only has 2 stages so basically 20 levels in the entire game which you're probably thinking "wait a minute this game is even shorter than the first game on the NES and the Super Mario Bros 2 from Japan on the famicom" In which you are correct it is shorter however with it's difficulty it does make this game last longer and it will take a while for beginners of this game to beat and if you're an expert at this game it still will take a good chunk of your time away while you play the game so either way if your good or bad at this game it still will take some time to beat. Just like the first game on the NES and the second game on the famicom there are warp zones hidden out through some stages in the game which are: #1 = World 1 level 3 where you have to find a potion the go all the way to the right side of the screen where you should see a vase, use the potion and enter the door and once your inside go down the pipe and you will be transported to World 4, #2 = World 3 level 1 where you have to go through the door to the large waterfall with all the clouds and then jump down and land on the platform in the center and enter afterwards to do the same thing you did in World 1 level 3 by using the potion and entering the vase which will take you to World 5, #3 = World 4 level 2 where you have to progress through the level normally until you reach a door that's sitting on a cloud and their is a black whale underneath it, once you are there you have to go to the left of the screen to get a potion and then continue to the right until you see a vase once you are there use the potion and be careful as their is very little space to move and once you enter the vase you will be warped to world 6, and finally #4 = World 5 level 3 you're going to want to choose Luigi or Princess Peach as you need a person that jumps high to be able to reach the vase anyway when you start the level continue through the level normally and right when you go up the ladder you should see the vase right away go and jump up there and there will be a potion that you can use and do that same thing as the last 2 times go down the vase after using the potion. Whew that was a mouthful anyway this game does have alot of time that you can put into it and alot of things to find so I'm going to give this a 9 out of 10.

Addictiveness: 8 out of 10

This is a game that I had when I was around 9 years old for the Super Nintendo on the Super Mario All-Stars cartridge and I loved playing this game as I liked the idea of being able to pick up your enemies and throw them into other enemies and I wondered why they never thought about that before but like I said a million times already it was only the second game in the series so a change was probably a good thing. One of the main reasons why I think this game is so addictive is the fact that you are able to choose between four different characters before entering a level and each of them are different in their own way which adds a nice touch to the game. Plus with all the new enemy idea that they had with having to throw the eggs that the birdo's shoot out of their mouths or having to throw the bombs back at the mouser's in other levels in the game it just give you that feeling of power and happiness inside. So if you're looking to pick this game up or play it on vizzed then I would suggest it as it is very addictive in my own opinion so an 8 out of 10 is the right rating for addictiveness to me.

Overall I don't see why people look down on this game so much, I mean yes it was a clone of Doki Doki Panic but is that really a bad thing? If you think about it all games released in North America by Nintendo are clones as they all are made in Japan first and released here later. But I'm not here to argue about why people like or dislike this game I'm here to give my thoughts about this game and I'd have to say I'm glad we got this game and we got the real super Mario bros 2 in America anyway. Ahh I think it's time for this review to come to an end and now I'm going to go fall asleep <---- (Just a joke)  just like how Mario was doing throughout this game.

Super Mario Bros 2 Game Description

One night Mario has a strange dream, where he opens a door to another world filled with even stranger creatures and lands then those in his last adventure against Bowser. Amazingly, the next day, Mario, Luigi, Toad, and the Princess stumble upon a cave, which leads to the world that was in Mario's dream.

Subcon, the land of dreams, is under an evil spell thanks to Wart, so Mario and the gang must save the day. New creatures to defeat and plenty of nasty surprises await.

Choose from the four characters, each differing in speed and jumping ability, and head on through 7 levels each filled with puzzles, bosses, bonus money, the always helpful mushroom, and invincible star, plus bombs and magic potions. After each level, depending on the coins you collect, you can use them in the bonus game to collect extra lives.

awesomenoobdude 03-09-15 - 09:56 AM
 This game gets me so nostalgic.

 My favorite Mario Bros game
Vanelan 01-18-15 - 08:38 PM
 This game is highly underrated. Even if its not canon, and a remake of Doki Doki Panic, its still a fun game.
rcarter2 02-03-14 - 11:27 AM
 madison: The reason for the time removal was because I was testing something. I wanted to see if the delay in the game loading up was counted in the overall time. I decided not to resubmit my other time because I was going to beat it.
Richard geller 02-03-14 - 12:55 AM
 Felicidades,Madison por tus records del primerísimo lugar tanto en super mario bros uno como en el dos en la categoria de speedrun. Ya solo te falta batir mi speedrun en super mario bros 3 para ser el rey de los super marios bros ????
jerryaberry 01-29-14 - 07:23 PM
 Thanks madison. It's a deathless run but definitely one of the easiest routes using primarily the princess. Anyway, 15 min is just bonkers!
madison 01-29-14 - 02:19 PM
 And nice new run, jerryaberry. Vastly improved over your previous one.
madison 01-29-14 - 02:18 PM
 Hmm, rcarter removed his time. He must be scheming something. . .
jerryaberry 01-26-14 - 01:39 PM
 Yeah those guys can make this speedrun super technical. I'm avoiding anything too crazy like that for now. In my last run I gambled A LOT on free lives to little avail. I didn't even need the lives!
rcarter2 01-26-14 - 12:34 PM
 Just one stage is giving me trouble. Stage 6-2. Sometimes the Beezo's don't appear at the same time, which makes me fall. If I get through that level without dying, then I can have a chance at taking back the first place spot.
Razor-987 01-22-14 - 03:25 PM
 poor rcarter :(
rcarter2 01-21-14 - 07:06 AM
 I can get that time in under 16 minutes. I just have to do a flawless run. Thing is, the 2 parts where I died were parts I usually don't die on :(
madison 01-17-14 - 11:21 PM
 Thanks, jerryaberry. My run is much less impressive than you think. I lost enough lives during it to get a game over!
jerryaberry 01-17-14 - 01:31 PM
 Great entry madison. You're one of my favorite speedrunners particularly with Mario games (Although this isn’t exactly a Mario game). Anyway, glad to see you competing.
4444alex 01-06-14 - 04:10 PM
 Love the game! I haven't played it for a long time.

 Haven't played this game in a long while.
8bitNESPlayer 07-09-13 - 06:34 PM
 @RcKl3ssGamingHD, it's because it's based on the Doki Doki Panic game. The original SMB2 (in Japan) was so hard, so in USA they made this game version.
SuperCrash64 07-09-13 - 06:23 PM
 lolol, You have to pick up items and throw them at enemies, the boxes are gone i believe, the coins are used for tokens I think..
RcKl3ssGamingHD 06-23-13 - 12:00 PM
 ERRR HOW DO YOU KILL ENEMIES, AND WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE COINS AND BOXES???

 If you guy didn't know this version of Super Mario Bros. 2 is the true sequel to the first game, And the Prototype for Doki Doki Panic was This, Don't believe me? Watch "DYKGaming Super Mario Part 4" on Youtube.

 I just beat it only using Mario. Now to do it 3 more times as the others.
