Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World User Reviews
Ah Mario, your platforming gems are so often precisely that. After storming the NES with three SMB games, the plumber brothers returned onto the SNES with Super Mario World. It's no secret that the game was extremely well received and an excellent example of how to do 2D platforming. After the odd decision to port SMB2 for the first Advance Mario title, Nintendo decided that gamers on the go should get a taste of this SNES classic for the second outing. Yes, this game is still awesome and I'm here to tell you why.
The story is pretty typical of Mario games, where the princess has gone and go...
Incredibly deep yet delightfully simple. Easy to pick up and play but beware - you won't want to put it down.The bad:
Steep difficulty curve - The early stages are incredibly easy, but later on the game gets much harder, at times bordering on annoying.Summary:
There have been other Mario games on the GBA since Super Mario World 2, but this is without a doubt the best. Like having the classic SNES version in your pocket, even when you think you've done everything (and that will take a long, long time) there are still more secret exits to discover, switches to press and enemies to bounce on.
The game may have "kiddy" cartoon style graphics and a dire "damsel in distress" plot, but they suit the simple gameplay perfectly. Jump, bounce, spin, climb and swim your way to the end of each stage, eventually leading you to the boss stage. Each of these take...
nuthin i can think ofSummary:
Graphics: Clear and pretty colorful, but not that detailed and some parts are very sparce and primitive.
Sound: The sound-effects are as they should be, while the music features many nice Mario tunes that sounds good on the GBA.
Gameplay: Flawless control, tons of varied, well-designed levels, a playable Yoshi and some nice items makes the gameplay brilliant.
Lifespan: Does not take such a long while to finish, but secrets and strong replays makes you return to it.
Overall: Excellent stuff, the first game was crap!!!
This reincarnation of one of my first games has been done perfectly, and then some. Graphics are as werid/beautiful as always, the sound is dead on, the extras are hot. Everything about this game is perfect.
This is what I call perfection. Never have I had such a good time with a handheld game. AND I played and conquered the original SNES game about 80 times. Mario finds himself going after the princess once again, but now he has Yoshi, Luigi and different upgrades to help him. The map you use is pretty cool, it actually changes shape with specific events in the game*cough beat 4th boss*cough*. The gameplay is flawless, no glitches, you fall you lose, just the prefect formula. Nothing else to say, A must-buy classic!
Taken from bri89's review, alternate account.
My brother owns this game and I play with it at times, and this is the best Mario game for Gameboy Advance ever made. First off let's start with the music, the music is a silent and yet a catchy tune it never gets annoying(which is unbelivable because in all my games the music is very repeatitive). Than there's the game itself, I find it challenging yet fun, but this isn't the type of game on which you could throw it against the wall and break it to pieces all it takes is some practice and the game becomes easier. Now like all other Mario games you have to rescue Princess Peach from the evi...
Good graphics, and it's the best classis game ever to come to Gameboy!Summary:
If your a Mario fan and if you don't have this game, and even if your not a mario fan, you are missing out! This game was brought back from the past and was made into a new game with whole new features you and your friends are sure to enjoy!
So, if you got the need for some action and if your bored, try buying this game, and you'll be glad you did!
