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 <>

Is different because .... (see the ending!!!!)
31 July 2004 | by (Costa Rica) – See all my reviews

That's because is so different, (also cause it was another video game in japan who got modified i've heard, but the landscapes are a lot like Mario & the main theme is very Italian!)

I think that all Mario's are amazing, every one was an experience in its time. This has enough Mario elements, it was the real second. (lost levels was just a re-edited Mario 1), also the way u take on the enemies is very fun, nice bosses & killer last boss, very colorful, naive & funny, i just looooove this game, & it resembles to me a little to MARIO64 in some ways.

The ending of this game justifies every difference u may find with other Mario's, is unique & it deserves a direct sequel as well!
