Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 User Reviews

Packs a Punch

The good:

The graphics are extremely loyal to the original version, in some aspects, it has been improved. Also, the music stays true to it's Mario-theme roots, and it packs 8 worlds filled with fun and challengeing levels. It also is compatible with the E-Reader to scan in new power-ups, levels, etc.

The bad:

The only thing is that it's essentially an old game. A good remake no doubt, but I never liked the original as I liked Super Mario World. It seems a bit too linear in places.

Summary:

Well, I got this game only because I wanted to complete my Super Mario Advance collection. And I did. I had never beaten the original, it was too hard, so I simply game up. So I started the game, got back in the groove of things, proceeded with no problem because I had played the game both on NES and SNES. That gripped me is how much more fun it is on a handheld. It gave me a lot to do when I was bored, on a boring trip outside, and I had enough time to beat the game. it then dawned on me that this is the second greatest Mario game ever. My recommendation cannot be higher on this game. It i...

Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3

The good:

Graphics, Sound, Sound Effects, Sharp World Maps, Good Learning Curve

The bad:

Lack of Bonus Material

Summary:

I recieved this game as a gift in the Christmas of 2003 (last Christmas) along with my Game Boy Advance SP. As with all new games, I neglegted 'family time' somewhat to play. Basically this game is a replica of the SNES version of SMB3 with a few new additions, and when I say a few I mean a couple. In fact, the only things that come to mind are the Perfect Clear screen upon beating a castle and the World Chooser (SNES may even have that, I haven't beaten it on SNES). I am not saying that takes away from the game because it will still keep you up late at night trying to beat the World 8 tank...

Mario is back! Better than ever!

The good:

There is many things to do, and many things to choose from, it has good graphics, and everything you need for good play.

The bad:

Well, you get timed on every level, I guess that kinds of rushes ya, but at least the timer isn't too long.

Summary:

This is a great game. It is also an old classic, back from the original Super Nintendo, but, Nintendo took that game and brought it back, so now you can enjoy the adventures of Mario and Luigi for their search for Princess Peach.

This game is great, Mario and Luigi were created way back, and you can still be with them today, you can get this game and have that same feeling in you, so you can always be prepared for the best.

This game is great to follow, and is packed with a whole lot of fun, so if you want action, this is the game for you!

Super Mario Advanced 4

The good:

The return of a classic . . .

The bad:

Mario speaks such profound things, not!, original Mario Bros. game is getting boring appearing in almost all Super Mario Advanced games

Summary:

Nintendo has once again brought a classic game to the Gameboy Advanced system, and for those like me who didn't get much of a chance to play it when it first came out, it is an opportunity to play a good game, and it allows people who have played to go back in time.
Graphics:
Thankfully this has been improved on GBA since the nintendo version. Backgrounds are the most noticeable improvement. Luigi looks like his Super Mario 2 self again in this game instead looking like Mario's twin. Very crisp and clear. (4.0/5.0)
Gameplay:
This walks into very familiar territory to those who've played previ...

Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3

The good:

This game has some of the best gameplay I have ever seen. I think it is argueably the best game for GBA. It brings back the Mario Bros. from 1989, with eight different worlds, it may take a while for the Joe Gamer to complete it.

The bad:

The only thing I would say is bad about this is the story, but since this is an action game and not an RPG, I will grade it a 5.

Summary:

Gameplay:5/5 With this alone I would grade this game a 5/5. It is a rare occasion that I would give a game a perfect just for gameplay.

Story:5/5 To tell you the truth, the story wasn't that great, but it was logical and I had to remind myself it was an action game, so it is worth a 5. For all you RPG lovers, the story is a 1.5.

Sound:5/5 The sound was awesome, especially for GBA.

Overall:5/5 Perfect. I see no flaws.

Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3

The good:

This game is called the best Mario game for a reason and that is cause it is. This Mario game not only feautred 8 worlds with tons of levels but they also had sub-bosses and the best power-ups. This game featured over 7 different items which is probably the record for a Mario game. Not only that but the power ups are fun to use and great. The game play is traditional Mario with some nice extras put in.

The new e-Reader feature is definitly a plus. Players can actually upload power-ups whenever they feel like and the game comes with the a Racoon Mario power-up card to begin with! Not only that but it comes with a level card, Wild Ride in the Sky.

The bad:

The only bad thing is that the game is focused more on Mario rather than both bros. You can either play only as Mario, or alternated between Mario and Luigi after between levels(this is automatic). There have been some hints of an unlockable modes, perhaps a Luigi mode.

Summary:

Personally, the power-ups are the best aspects in this one. There is a power-up for almost every level. Not just that but I also think the mpa design is unique. I think this is going to be one of the greatest GBA games ever.
