Ugh, A Disappointment

NOTE: I had never played the original version of this game.

The Super Mario Bros. series takes Mario on adventures where you have to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser, and in this case, his kids.

I had hopes of this being like the original Super Mario Bros., but it wasn't. One BIG reason this disappointed me was NO FIRERY MARIO. They replaced him with some stupid thing where you have to grab a leaf and it turns you into something that looks like a fox that supposedly flies, and it doesn't help you at all. That automatically takes away from my rating. Other than that it's pretty good. The graphics look great. Their are sometimes levels that take you on a mission, and that is an improvement since Super Mario Bros.. The gameplay, as I suggested earlier, got worse, though. But I do recommend this to anyone who likes Mario-style action. I give this game 6 out of 10. 3 points were taken from that score because of the exclusion of Firery Mario, and another was taken just because of the disappointment it gave me.
