Product Description

Product Description

Re-released in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Nintendo entertainment system console, Super Mario Bros. brings you back to the first epic battle between Mario and Bowser. Relive the mushroom-eating, Koopa-stomping action, and Mario's merciless jumping as you enjoy a great classic from the early days of Nintendo. Comes in a standard Game Boy Advance box featuring the classic artwork of the original game.

Review

Admit it. You played it. You loved it. It might have been that first game that made you realize what was coming in this little hobby of ours. This is a perfect port of the original Super Mario Bros. Every last mushroom and goomba is accounted for, and you'll feel yourself slipping into a blissful recollection of your early days as a gamer. Just don't expect anything revolutionary here. The closest thing to newness is the ability to link up with another GBA to play with a friend, but don't worry. Two-player is still available on just one unit. If you're looking for innovation, check out the excellent Deluxe version on Game Boy Color. But for purists, this is the cream of the crop in retro goodness. So, if you're willing to drop the 20 gold coins for this one, enjoy your trip down memory lane.

5.0 out of 5 stars NES Classic Perfectly Ported to GAEMBOY ADV June 9, 2004
If you want to buy one of the RETRO Classic NES carts Nintendo is offering this is definitely #1 on the list for sheer ease of play and memories. SUPER MARIO BROS is a perfect port of the NES game (minus one glitch at the end of the 3rd world that gave you infinite lives). Several have bemoaned you can not save your progress, and that's true ... but in the original game this was not an option. Learn the game well enough and you can WARP your way through the beginning levels anyway! You play as Mario or Luigi jumping your way through many worlds (levels) to get to save Princess Toadstool and her courtiers. Set in a land where evil mushrooms, turtles, fish and birds attack from all directions (okay 90% of them are on the right!).
The graphics and controls are the same ... no embellishments or "lost zones" or challenge modes ... just straight up classic MARIO and LUIGI in their first adventure back in the NES days. It's a very nice port, and I like the ability to take it with me on the road in my SP. It also brings back memories when I hook it up to the TV and get to see it normal size!
I've kind of gone off about paying $20 for Donkey Kong, Ice Climber, and Excite Bike (why not a compilation of those on ONE cart - especially when you can get the e-reader versions for $5). But this one is well worth it because you have many levels to play, and the ability to play 2 player! This is still a fun game, and I can't believe how instantly likeable it still is even after playing all the latest! Cute, simple, and fun! Any age can enjoy it! Highly reccommended - not just for nostalgia freaks. Though they will get a kick out of the perfect replica packaging - from the instructions, the cart, and the box -- it all looks old school! Trademark classic 80s game that helped build an empire around Italian plumbers attacking mushrooms! Wow!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mario : From The Beginning June 13, 2004
When I look at older video games, they always seem to grab me when I least expect, time after time. It really is nothing new, but something to really grasp on. That comes with the case of the original Nintendo games, and the original taste of the Mario Brothers. It has been a great feeling, time and time again. The duo of Mario & Luigi, has been known as one of the most successful video games of all time. The original Super Mario Brothers made it into full stream 20 years ago in the arcades, and then it made it fully on the first supersystem, the Nintendo Entertainment System. Arguably, the games still ring out bells very well, as well as welcoming newcomers to the plumber light again, and again from the warp pipe.
Super Mario Brothers, the 1985 video game returns to the Game Boy Advance. Only the second time this game returns to the system, the previous one was just for the earlier Game Boy Color system. The games graphics are really old school, and a little bland, compared to the later Mario Brothers games, but this cartridge was designed for it, as a way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the NES. The other downside is that many people may not want this one, because they might be hooked on the recent Super Mario 3. The game features the same 8 different worlds from the original Super Mario Brothers, without any hidden bonuses or surprises. As you play, you will encounter the same enemies, Bowser, goombas, and koopa troopas and a whole lot more than meets the eye. Still, I thought it would've been a better move to reissue it with the same graphics feel from the Super Mario All-Stars from 1993, but not what Nintendo created years earlier. All in all, the game still remains addictive as earlier eras in the video game world, and that is nothing to sneeze at.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bros. First Adventure is Back! June 16, 2004
Way back in 1985, Super Mario Bros. was a revolutionary game that defined the ever-popular 2D sidescrolling adventure. Age certainly hasn't slowed Super Mario Brothers down one bit. In fact, since this is part of the classic NES it means its a direct port of the original Mario game. This means it was before Saving was thought of.
The graphics may not hold up a candle to what the GBA is capable of but that's because this is the "classic" NES series. This isn't meant to showcase what the GBA can do. This is meant for nostalgia and it is perfectly captured on the GBA this way.
As I said, it's a direct port straight from the NES to your GBA. But it does have one downside. For one, it seems that because of the GBA's screen some things had to be squashed just to be in proportion. This is very noticeable when you rescue the many toads in the castles.
This shouldn't stop you from picking up the game but that's exactly where the other problem lies. Like other classics in the Classic NES series, Super Mario Bros. has already been released several times! If you have a copy of Super Mario Brothers Deluxe that'll do just fine.
I'd easily say this is worth it to put down 20 bucks if you want the original classic. But if you have Super Mario Brothers Deluxe or an E-Reader you may want to grab Zelda instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Mario May 21, 2004
By Mode7
The formula for the best Mario games started right here at number one. Yes he was featured in Donkey Kong and Mario Bros. before this game came out, but SUPER Mario Bros. invented platform games. To this day the game remains as playable as the first time you opened the box of your NES (back when they packed in games, I miss it). The graphics are great for the time period they were developed for. Remember a true reviewer considers the age of a game and doesn't compare to games that have the benefit of todays technology. Back in 1985 this game was top billing at arcades and at home, the fun factor and replay value was the top priority back then. Unfortunately that philosophy has practically died, and your lucky to even want to play a game after you beat it the first time now days. This game echoes a time when games were fun, replayable, and didn't require a large investment of time to beat. As you get older you find you like these games better and better because life is so busy. SMB is a fine example of Nintendo's trademark quality and the roots of gaming for most of us in our twenties +.
