Long after the previous battle with King Bowser Koopa, the Mushroom Kingdom was safe again. Mario went to sleep one night and had a strange dream: He, Luigi, Toad, and Princess arrived in this strange world called Subcon, filled with strange beings, like snakes that spit bullets, walking cactuses, and birds that drop bombs. Also, the land is ruled by the mean Wart, a mutant lizard who hates vegetables, so once again Mario and Luigi with Toad and Princess must stop evil, where ever it is lurking: in the ice lands, in the woods, high in the sky, in caverns, in magic doors and then come face to face with Wart. This is not an easy mission, but then again it's all just a dream...Or is it? Written by Dylan Self <>

I first played this game nearly nine years ago at a friend's house. I was familiar with it because of the original, Super Mario Bros. I didn't like as much because instead of stomping on the enemy, you have to throw stuff at them, and because it didn't have Bowser or other favorites. What was good about this game was you got to choose who you got to be. You didn't have to be Mario, you could be Luigi, Toad or the Princess. What really shocks me is the fact this isn't the actual sequel to the first game. The actual Super Mario Bros 2 never left Japan. So Mario and friends were put in an unknown game. Overall, it wasn't that great but still fun to play.
