    Mario's Time Machine should be avoided at all costs.

    I remember downloading Mario's Time Machine on a ROM, but this game just plain sucks for several reasons. Luckily, I deleted this game off my computer for good. As you may expect, you play as Mario to travel around d... Read Full Review

    Even though it's Mario, don't expect an exciting adventure...

    To be honest, it's been a while since I played this game. I rented it when I was younger, and when I popped it in my NES, all I could say was, "What the?!" That's right. This game made no sense to me back then, and from ... Read Full Review

    I wish I could use this time machine to go back in time to warn Mario about this game.

    Nintendo teamed up with third party developer, The Software Toolworks to create an educational Mario series (BIG MISTAKE). They made some games like "Mario Is Missing" and "Mario's Early Years: Preschool Fun" for the Sup... Read Full Review

    arg, my head hurts.

    Okay, I just beat the game today. Okay, I admit it, I cheated. But, seriously, how are you supposed to know all that?! I mean, Some of it's pretty easy, but the rest is just way too hard to figure out. Gameplay: Al... Read Full Review

    Mario isn't missing in this one. At least it's bearable to some degree.

    Mario's first edutainment adventure had him missing. In the sequel that shouldn't of been made in the first place, Mario makes a time machine and travels through history, saving people like Abe Lincoln, Julius Caesar, an... Read Full Review

    Can I use Mario’s Time Machine to get that pair of hours in my life back? Please?

    After noticing that many people who’d posted reviews for the NES game ‘Mario’s Time Machine’ didn’t review the same game as mine, I decided to check out the SNES version as well. It couldn’t be that much worse, right? A... Read Full Review

    Words fail me.

    However, they don’t fail me enough to stop me from writing this review – such as it is. You see, in order to ‘justify’ the time children have spent on video games, Nintendo decided to release games that were somewhat ... Read Full Review

    Know those cd-i Zelda games? They rock compared to this.

    Before I start, I want to say that learning games can be fun and entertaining. Too bad this game is the opposite, not fun at all to play. You will get tired of it before completing level 1. And you wont learn anything... Read Full Review
