In Booster's Tower, Mario can go through a curtain and come out on the other side looking just like the Mario from Super Mario Bros. This only works once. See more »


When you arrive at Bowser's Keep via the Cloud Bus, a group of people can be seen on Vista Hill, celebrating your getting into the keep. But if you visit Vista Hill on the map again, they are gone. See more »


Mushroom Kid: 1... 2... 3! Hey, Mario! You think if I practiced enough, I could be as good a jumper as you?
Mario: Yeah right, kid!

Crazy Credits

During the credits we see that the Mushroom Kingdom is celebrating the defeat of Smithy by holding a parade. As Luigi leads the parade (yes, Luigi makes a cameo in this game), we see humorous scenes that involve Bowser and his minions fixing the castle, Booster with his new wife Valentina and her henchman Dodo, Johnathan Jones and his crew on his ship, prince Mallow with his real parents, and finally Mario and Peach together. The sky turns dark and the Mushroom people's costumes glow a la Disneyland electrical parade and it shows the Mushroom castle (resembling "Sleeping Beauty castle") and ends with fireworks (another Disneyland reference). How many fireworks you bought in Mole village determines which firework is shown. The whole thing ends when Geno returns to his home in the stars, while the music from the original "Super Mario Bros" game plays. See more »

Mario's Greatest adventure!!!!!!!!
15 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is possibly the best game for the SNES. The Three greatest games for SNES are: Legend of Zelda:Link to the past, Kirby Superstar, and SMRPG. Nintendo and squaresoft worked together in 1996 to try something new with everyones favorite SuperHuman Plumber by putting him in a new RPG adventure with all kinds of new friends and enemies never imagined.

Many people say it's easy and that is true, but there is so much to find and go after. Alot better than the lame save the princess plot. It brings a whole new world. And then some.

This is one of Marios only games that is not just another cliche of the classics. I mean the Mario Games for N64 get really old. And I was really disappointed at the pointless Paper Mario.

Overall Mario fans will be pleased at this SNES masterpiece, RPG fans might think it's too easy but will like it a little, and those that are neither one, but like any video games will try to find other things in the game.

My favorite character would have to be Geno because he is the most mysterious main character plus I like the Geno Boost attack which if you do just right can hit 9999 points on opponent. And I also like Booster because he's strange, him and his snifits, and the funniest scene in the game was when he tried to have a wedding with Toadstool and do other stuff with her.

Well If you still have your old SNES, and have a little cash, go and buy it. If your tired of your Same old Mario crap, want a different kind of RPG,or just want a cool game, this is for you.
