I hated this game. I finished it because I was determined to beat it, and because I hoped that it would end with some kind of actual battle, but it didn't. It's purely educational, but the fact that it's a video game means that you'll want to finish it.
I don't have fond memories of the actual game, but I learned a lot from it. In college classes, I remember stuff that I learned for this game. This game is more like school than a Mario game, but if you don't mind that, you really can learn a lot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mario getting into an issue with licenses January 18, 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
What happens if you hand over the Mario license to some other game company? They make a game that isn't as good as Nintendo's Marios. Mario's Time Machine is a good example. It was released for the NES, the Super Nintendo, and the computer. The NES version is the best one out of the 3 versions.

The game's story is Yoshi being kidnapped by Bowser. You must gather up the stolen objects from past times and bring them back to where they belong in order to be able to rescue him. It may not be such a great story, but at least the game itself is decent.

The game starts out with you navigating Mario in a hall. There are several doors to go into. You go in a door to end up fighting against Koopas in a Mario Bros arcade setting. In educational games, don't forget that you can't die, so there's no challenge whatsoever. You are also able to exit out of the pipes. It's kinda reasonable if you want to go get a different item first, but if you are trying to kill the Koopas, it's possible they can push you out.

After killing them all, you get an object from a past time. You must go into the time machine, select a year to go to, and then you warp there.

Each year will be in a different setting. 80m (Which is meant to be 80 million years ago) is a land with dinosaurs. Not a lot, but with some. 1969 takes you to space. 1947 is in Russia. There's more, but I don't feel like spoiling them. They would also contain clues for you to figure out what item belongs to the time. They also teach you about the time periods you're in.

The area you drop the item at is a bit precise (only a bit, though), so be sure you put in the right place or else a bird will come, take the item away, and then you'll have to go back to the time machine to fight the Koopas again.

Nintendo is getting out of hand. Mario games are getting crappier, crappier and crappier. Mario is for one year olds. He should die. Maybe Sonic, Halo or any other character that doesn't come from nintendo should be world famous than this weakest-character-in-the-video game-history. All of his games is junk. This game is badd.
