    The ugly duckling of the series . . .

    Rated on July 19, 2006 by fenix1022

    Just because the gameplay was different and the final boss was not Bowser does not make smb2 a bad game. I think it expanded on the concept of the first game, as far as sidescrollers go, and added co...

    Super Mario Bros. 2 is the sequel to Super Mario Bros. This game is a remake of the Famicom game Doki Doki Panic except the characters from that game are replaced with Mario characters. The Japane...

    Nintendo demonstrates the use of innovation! :idea:

    I've never played the original Japanese version of this game called "Doki Dori Panic" so I can't say truthfully if I think it is a clone or not. But one thing's for sure: Shigeru Miyamoto and the rest...

    This game took Super Mario Bros into intriguing new territory, and did so very successfully.

    Rated on April 07, 2012 by J-Man2244

    The follow-up to the classic Super Mario Bros for the NES was probably shocking to a lot of players when it first came out because, characters aside, Super Mario Bros 2 bears very little resemblance t...

    Mario 2 dosen't stand out to me as a Mario type of game. But rather a uniqe game that alot of people didn't enjoy as much as the other series. I think nintendo was trying to do something different in ...

    The best Mario across all consoles!

    Rated on May 29, 2007 by dodgersfan7800

    Often considered the black sheep of the Mario series, Super Mario Bros. 2 is still my favorite Mario game of all time. In case you didn't already know, the original Super Mario Bros. 2 was a virtual ...

    A slight disapointment, but still a fun game to play.

    Rated on September 29, 2009 by KingBoo112

    This game's alright, but it ripped off Yume koji Doki Doki Panic. Why couldn't Nintendo just release the _REAL_ Super Mario Bros. 2 in North America also??? Is it an anti American game or something? W...

    Not as good as first.

    Rated on January 06, 2006 by LivleyLegend

    I don't like this game at all. I think it's boring and pointless. The different characters to choose from is a plus but the levels are dumb and far not as good as the first. The gameplay not to good b...
