Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3
23 October 2005
have to admit, ever since the first Super Mario Advance game was
released, I was waiting for a re-release of the classic Super Mario
Bros. 3. However, as the second and third Mario Advance games were
released, my hopes for a GBA version of SMB3 sank.
Summary: Re-used Nintendo magic is still Nintendo magic.
Pros: Balanced learning curve, Impressive level variation, Perhaps the best Mario game ever in the palm of your hand, Remarkable sense of freedom, Upgraded graphics and sound, Wonderfully simplistic and intuitive controls
Cons: Can be beaten in a few hours, Not much new stuff, Predictable multiplayer mode
Excerpt: Super Mario Bros. 3 is the best selling video game of all time. Well if you want to get technical, it's the best selling stand-alone game. The original Super Mario Bros. actually has the most copies sold, but it had the advantaged of being packed in with the Nintendo Entertainment System.
Excerpt: In case you have not played the original, here's the pulse: Bowser and his seven Koopa Kids have stolen seven magic wands from each country in the Mushroom World and used them to turn the kings into animals.
Summary: On February 12th, 1990—two days before TYP’s sixth birthday—Super Mario Bros. 3 made its long-awaited North American debut. For its 2003 Bar Mitzvah celebration on the GBA, all I can say is, “Huzzah!”
Pros: e-Reader Cards with new and remixed levels, Rumble support using Game Boy Player, Superb platform gameplay and level design, Support for 2-players alternating!
Cons: Game + 2nd GBA + e-Reader + cards = new levels - $, Mario & Luigi voices more annoying than ever, “Just what I needed.”, Where’s the classic SMB3 battle mode?, Where’s the original ending credits music?
Excerpt: With the recent surge in the release of classic video game collections (you might have seen the collections from Atari, Midway and Namco for instance. Or the old school Nintendo games being put out for the GBA) I thought this would be a good time to touch bases with one of those classics, Super...
Conclusion: Apart from that though, SMB3 is exactly the game we wanted and expected to get, except now with mid and end-of-world save points. The levels are still as engaging and well thought out as we remember, the boss levels (the bobbing ships!
Conclusion: Mit einem gequälten Lächeln schaltet der PG Redakteur seinen GBA ein. „Tschuuuus ääh gäim“, dröhnt die blecherne Stimme aus den Monolautsprechern. Wenig überrascht schnellt eine Augenbraue in die Höhe.
Summary: Avec Enslaved : Odyssey to the West, les studios de Ninja Theory proposent une aventure action/plate-forme où vous suivrez les pérégrinations de Monkey et Trip, deux survivants d'un monde post-apocalyptique. Une histoire contée de fort jolie manière...
Pros: Un univers superbe, Des héros attachants, Un gameplay efficace, Bande son très réussie
Cons: Assez répétitif dans l'ensemble, Peu poussé dans ses différents styles de jeu
