Set a new standard for video games at the time
9 May 2002 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

This was one of the first really good games I played on the Nintendo. While I found some of the first parts rather challenging, the game is quite enjoyable to play once you get the hang of it. I had a lot of fun playing this game, and it was the first video game my dad played ever, even when I wasn't around (he actually finished the game before I did!). Sometimes I still wish I had it.
