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.

  • 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.

  • 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

10 June 2001
  • Summary: Of course Planet GameCube's first ever review is going to be for Super Mario Advance! Is this game worthy of adding to your collection?
  • Pros: A near-perfect multiplayer upgrade from the classic Mario Bros., An upgraded and shiny new look to both SMB2 and Mario Bros., At its heart, it's 2 Mario classics in one., Classic Mario sound and music in full stereo sound (with headphones)., Easy multiplayer setup for all ages., Graphically, Mari...
  • Cons: Mario 2 has been done before, and not much has changed from the NES title., No left-right camera movement, (ala Super Mario World SNES) or at least it wasn't documented well. I can't get it to work., No sound menus to control what you do like, and mute what you don't., Only different color Marios...

Super Mario Advance Review

  • Conclusion: It's strange to think that Super Mario All Stars is now eight years old, and even stranger still when you realise that SMB2 itself has now been around in various forms for 13 years.
