That prehistoric bully, King Koopa, has returned to the Mushroom Kingdom in a flying doom ship. This time he's accompanied by his seven bratty, evil children: Wendy O. Koopa, Morton Koopa Jr., Roy Koopa, Iggy Koopa, Lemmy Koopa, Ludwig Von Koopa, and Larry Koopa. They have stolen seven wands from the seven kings of seven worlds: Grass Land, Desert Land, Water Land, Giant Land, Sky Land, Iced Land, and Pipe Maze. So Mario and Luigi are off to stop the Koopas. New features are at their aid: the simple touch of a leaf can transform Mario or Luigi into part a raccoon and allows them to fly. If they obtain a raccoon suit, they can briefly turn into a statue, and more! The fate of the Mushroom Kingdom lies in the hands of the Mario Brothers, can they defeat the seven Koopa kids and even King Koopa himself? Written by Dylan Self <>

The best NES game ever!!
9 December 2002 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

Out of the 3 "Super Mario Bros." games made for the NES, this one is hands down the best one. What can I say? This game is AWESOME!! All new enemies, cool new power-ups (like the Tanooki Suit, Hammer Bros suit, Raccoon,and Frog power-ups), warp whistles, and 8 different worlds. What more could you want? Overall, a superb game.

This gets a perfect 10!
