Super Mario Bros. 2 review
Not your usual Mario game
You can play as Toad & Peach! Different elements of gameplay compared to other Mario titles.The bad:
DIfferent style of gameplay may not appeal to everyone.Summary:
Although this game's title is the same as the Japanese sequel, this version is totally different (Japan's wa like the original SMB). Instead, this title takes Mario & friends to the world of Sub-Con, a dream world of sorts. The gameplay differs because instead of stomping enemies and using fireballs, you have to rely on vegetables & mushrooms pulled from the ground as weapons! Each character also has different atributes-Mario's balanced, Luigi jumps really high, Toad's a strong lifter, and Peach can float in midair-which makes the game more interesting as sometimes stages are best cleared with a certain character.
Graphics are much improved over the first SMB, with more color & detail in the backgrounds. Sound/music are nice but they get annoying after a while. The new controls are responsive although it takes a little practice to use them effectively.
While this is unique as far as Mario titles go, some may be turned off by the lack of koopa-stomping and not racing against the clock. But if you give this one a try you may find it's actually a fun and challenging alternate to the original SMB style of gameplay.
