Super Mario Advance

Portable Review
23 October 2005
  • Excerpt: One of the launch titles for the Game Boy Advance, Super Mario Advance was well-recieved by people who grew up with the game and those who were new to Nintendo's portly plumber mascot. What's odd about the game's success, is the fact that it isn't the real Super Mario Bros. 2 (this game is known as Super Mario Bros. USA in Japan). Actually, this game was originally released in Japan under the name Doki Doki Panic! and was modified to include the Mario gang.

Super Mario Advance – Review

27 November 2002
  • Excerpt: The best reason to own the original Game Boy and Game Boy Color were Nintendo's exclusive titles. For the last decade, Nintendo has been the only publisher consistently releasing not only good games for the handheld, but delivering great exclusive titles like Tetris, The Legend Of Zelda: Links Awakening, and the many shades of Pokémon.

  • Summary: It got lost in the mail for a while, but TYP's long-awaited review for Super Mario Advance is finally here!
  • Pros: Classic gameplay with tight controls, Difficulty level is hard for newbies as well as veterans, Great tunes, Luigi is playable!!! With unique characteristics no less!, Wonderful Multiplayer
  • Cons: All characters in Multiplayer are Mario clones! Where's Luigi?!, Controversial gameplay (it is somewhat a “hit or miss” with Mario fans), It's a remake, Limited graphics, Often annoying voices

  • Summary: Nintendo screwed up here and did not try at all, SMBDX 2 it is not. If you want a real port get SMBDX, but if you do like SMB2 a lot get this, but its not much more than the original.

Nintendo World Report
19 June 2001
  • Summary: Looking for another opinion on the GBA's launch Mario title? Good, because here's what Justin Nation thought of the pudgy plumber's first outing on the GBA...
  • Pros: A great challenge for those complaining platformers have become too easy, For completists, this is a no-brainer, The conversion of Mario Brothers Classic is great for sweetening the deal
  • Cons: At times in SMB2 the scrolling screen can be VERY distracting, It is a mere conversion of existing games and doesn't offer anything terribly revolutionary, The deviation from the Mario formula, to some, is criminal

Super Mario Advance

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: "Seasoned gamers might look at it and pass it over since they’ve already lived through the experience but newcomers and Mario fans can’t do wrong by getting Mario Advance." There’s a crowd of players out there unfamiliar with the Mario legacy so Mario Advance will be a fresh experience.
  • Pros: - Blast from the past, - Multiplayer is a good addition, - No slow-down, - A few new challenges, - Original Mario Brothers game included, - Better gambling!, - Save game option
  • Cons: - If you mastered Super Mario 2 for the NES, you’ll quickly blast through this, - The ending still feels like a rip-off!, - You’ll have to buy a peripheral for the multiplayer aspects, - The cartridge is so damn small it may go missing
