One of the best remakes in history. All Super Mario Bros Nes games remade for the SNES. I confess that this analysis is somewhat obstructed by nostalgia, this was one of the games that I have the greatest affective memory, as I played a lot in my childhood. I'll talk briefly about the four games in the compilation.
The classic Super Mario Bros. it's simple and faithful to the nes version, only with improved graphics, decorating Bowser's castles (which were just gray on the NES) and making the Toad's joke at the end of each world funnier and with better sounds throughout the game, obviously. The game has 32 stages plus a second mission, a little more difficult, but not that much.
Super Mario Lost Levels (Super Mario Bros 2. Japanese) is like the first one, only with much more difficult stages and with a few more stages than the first and having as a second mission, original stages, different from the original, which were the same stages . This game is really worth it, I didn't have the ability to finish it when I was younger so I just finished it recently, for those who find the first game easy, there will be a little more challenge here. The US had its own Mario 2 (Super Mario USA in Japan), which was a version of a Japanese game ?Doki Doki Panic? with character skins from the Super Mario series. This game has only 20 stages, one of the shortest Mario games, and has a different gameplay than the rest of the series (which I don't like). However, it still brings interesting things, like more playable characters, which in the past were just Mario and Luigi and brings different bosses, breaking the pattern of the previous ones, which were stupidly boring. Personally, I don't like this game, but it's not bad and, like the whole collection, it's worth playing.
Now the darling, Mario Bros 3, the third game in the series, was already amazing on the 8-bit console, on the SNES, it became a true masterpiece, with an incredible amount of levels and even distinct bosses, themed worlds (like became standard in the series) much more distinguished than the first ones. In addition to countless secrets, mini-games, steps that can be optional. This game was very innovative for the Mario series (I'm ignoring American 2 here, because it's more of a game with characters) and it set the mold for Super Mario World on the SNES.
The sizes of these games are sensational. Better graphics and sounds, it has a charm to this day, I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to try the games on the NES but doesn't want to see the 8-bit graphics. The negative points are the same as for the ported games, in my opinion nothing that could harm the experience. I just talked about nes games. I know there's a version that adds Super Mario World, but I think it's worth an isolated review
About the scores of the game i judge according to the games at the time.
