|Title: Super Mario Bros. 3 (4th review)
Rom Player: NESticle
Reviewer: thank god for bacon
Synopsis: I donít think anybody who had an NES didnít have this game, because everyone I know at least owned a copy. Like before, Bowser kidnapped the princess again, for one reason or another (a horny one or something), but this time, he sent his little bastard kids to get in Mario's way. How Bowser has kids is beyond me. There are 7 or 8 worlds, with like 15 mini levels each, which makes this a long game to beat. Oh, and like I said, for the few people who havenít owned this game, if you ever saw the movie, The Wizard, you would have definitely seen a good glimpse of this game, and if you donít have a Nintendo around, donít despair: Just now, I looked at ebgames.com and saw that Super Mario Bros. 3 is being re-released on the Game Boy Advance. Of course, if you donít have a GBA.....well....you can still watch someone play...I guess. But I was told the original was always better.
Gameplay: 6 Just a sidescroller, pretty much everyone seen it.
Graphics: 10 The graphics were one of the best for the NES. Not exactly top of the line by todayís terms, but this was made in 1990, when graphics were weaker and this was considered awesome.
Music: 8 Good songs and sounds.
Originality: 7 Getting to be Raccoon Mario to fly, and Frog Mario to swim was a unique concept, but the princess being kidnapped again was pretty repetitive.
Overall rating: 9 This was probably one of the best NES games out there, and a must-have for anyoneís collection.
Best Cheats: Nothing Entered
Game Play: 6
Overall Rating: 9
