8.7 Great game with very few flaws.

This is a remake (I think) of the original Super Mario Bros for NES. It's a very good game and will be the best starter of the series for you if all you have is a DS.
It's classic Mario, there's 8 worlds and 2 of them are unlockable, the last castle in World 8 is where you fight Bowser and finally save Peach. Some of the levels were a bit tough to collect all 3 stars, but most of them were really easy.
The graphics are very cartoonish, and it's all 2D. Nothing wrong with that though, I like 2D. The sound effects are good, but there is no voice acting. Some good Mario tunes in there too.
Not much to do after you finish unless you didn't get all 3 stars for each level. There's also a batch of minigames to play that are like Clubhouse Games, except they're Mario themed.
I loved this game, but it was too easy. I completed the game without dying once, not on my first try, but I did it. If you like games like that, then pick this up.
