Summary: The Gameboy Advance is unique in the Nintendo catalogue as being a system without an original Mario title. Barring the abysmal failure of the Virtual Boy, the lack of a Mario title has never occurred before or since. Much like a person without a country, a Nintendo without a Mario just feels adrift and cut off from the rest of the gaming universe and real time gamer economy. Of course, one could argue that Mario IS Nintendo.
Summary: ok its a good game and i mean a realy good game its just that my dispacher gave me some trobles ordering The game wich was ok but it almost stoped me from geting the game but over all ita a great game engoy.
Summary: Bought this as a game to use on the go and all in all it's ok. I don't like the mario bros. part of the game because I simply don't know how to do it and it's not as though i'm an inexperienced gamer. However, super mario bros. 2 is really good, enjoyable and actually completable!! I wouldn't have bought this if I knew about the poorer side to this game. I recommend you just buy super mario bros. 2.

I honestly spent hours trying to rescue the Princess in games such as Super Mario Bros 1, 2 and 3, Super Mario World 1 and ...
Summary: Though not fundamentally flawed, Super Mario Advance runs the risk of not being everything you expect it to be. Old series expectancies--goombas, koopas, fire flowers--do not feature here, and expected conventions--despatching enemies by way of jumping, for example--are abandoned. Uprooting vegetables and deploying them now fells your antagonists, many of whom are unfamiliar.
Excerpt: "...of the original NES adventure Super Mario Bros 2 is present and correct, and like all of the original Mario games, time has been kind to it. It's still as fun as it was in 1983 (Pointless Fact: It's as old as me!) To add extra sweetness to the mix though, the game has been tweaked and adapted to fit its new home on the Gameboy Advance, so we're now treated to new extra large enemies, items and power-ups, plus new bosses and animation. They've even ...
