    A 4.9?? Are they out of their minds!??

    This is the mario bros. before the super one. No mushrooms, no princess, just you and your brother Luigi clearing the pipes of nasty creatures. It's a fun and balanced mix of co-op and competitive gameplay that's a no-br... Read Full Review

    Fight smiling mutant non-ninja turtles.

    What many non old-school gamers don't know is that Mario & Luigi were around long before "Super Mario Brothers". Mario was actually introduced in Donkey Kong. But the first game named after him was Mario Brothers, a game... Read Full Review

    I accidentally downloaded this thinking it was SUPER Mario Bros... What a costly mistake that was.

    I seriously mistakenly downloaded this thinking it was Super Mario Bros. but found that this was just Mario Bros. which is a port of an old arcade game. This game features nothing exciting in terms of gameplay or graphic... Read Full Review

    The original game that started all the Mario Madness!

    Obviously this is not a game you would rate as an all time Great, but it does have it's benefits. For one thing, its really fun to play and it goes on forever. You play as Mario, of course, or Luigi if you play 2 play... Read Full Review

    It hasn't aged well like other Mario games have...

    Mario made his debut in Donkey Kong in 1981 in the arcades, and soon became a well-known video game character. So in 1983, Mario left his girlfriend and that big ape, and took on the role of a plumber. With the debut of ... Read Full Review

    Your five dollars is better spent on some better VC games, as this Mario title isn't worth it.

    You've got 500 Wii Points left. What do you do? Buy a Mario game, since you're a fan of the series or missed these classics? Well sure, go ahead and buy Super Mario Bros 1, 2, 3, or Donkey Kong. This one... well... it's ... Read Full Review

    Just plain fun! Two player mode is great!

    This is a fun game, and that is pretty much it. If you like games where you are on different screen, this is not a game for you. This game takes place on one level which features different enemies which you must hit from... Read Full Review
