Super Mario Bros Review by Matt Mullen

Reviewed Tuesday 1 June 10
/ 10

The first game ever out for any Nintendo Entertainment system was Super Mario Bros. for the NES.

Even though this game isn't quite as technological as Super Mario 64 it is still a classic. In this game first player is Mario second player is Luigi. You go around stopping on Koopas, and trying to get to bowser. There are eight levels each with three stages a piece.


Graphics 5 out of 10

Because this game has only 8-bits the graphics aren't to good, but that doesn't matter in this game, you can still get plenty of fun!


Music and Sound 7 out of 10

The music and sound aren't the best on this game but they still keep you on the edge of your seat waiting for what comes next, whether it be bowser or just a fish.


Game Challenge 8 out of 10

This game can be very challenging if you don't use the warps. You must complete all 24 stages without losing your lives or you must start all over again (unless you use the continue code.). But this keeps the game challenging and you can still beat it. With warps I have beaten it under an hour, without warps, about 5 hours I think.

Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10

This game is very fun to play even if it doesn't have the best graphics or sounds, or 3d graphics. This game is a classic side-scrolling game which makes it even more fun, whether it is as fun as Super Mario 64, well, I'll let you decide.



Sometimes this game can be frustrating if you cannot get past a certain level or stage. This can be frustrating because it can take ever to get past, and you can't save your game and come back to it. This can also be frustrating because if you are on the last level and you didn't do something that your parents asked you to do you have to turn it off then start all over again.


Replayability 7 out of 10

This game is fun to replay because you can play against friends to see who can beat it fastest or who can get the most points. It doesn't have a battle mode or anything, but that's all right.


Game Value 9 out of 10

This is defiantly worth the $1 cost because it is so inexpensive, it only loses a little bit of it's cost because lots of regular Nintendo games don't work very well which is a down side. There is another up side though, not only does this game come with Mario Bros. but most of them also come with Duck Hunt which you need one of the guns for.



Overall 10 out of 10

This game is very fun and I recommend that if you have a NES, go out and buy it if you don't already have it, this way you can experience not only the first game for Nintendo but also Duck Hunt. I recommend this game to everybody who has not yet played it, if they like side scrolling games and cheap graphics. But you got to give this one a 10 out of 10 overall, I mean after all it did start Nintendo.
