Super Mario Bros. 3

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Patrick Super Mario Bros. 3 is probably by far the best Mario action game ever made for the Nintendo Entertainment System! In the sequel to Super Mario Bros. 2, Bowser decides once again to capture the Princess of Mushroom Kingdom. But this time, it will be tougher! Bowsers 7 evil kids, Larry, Morton Jr., Wendy, Roy, Iggy, Lemmy, and Ludwig have stolen the magic wands of the 7 kings in Mushroom World and turned them into animals! Each one is guarding a wand on board their airship. Mario must fight the Koopa Kids and turn the kings back to their old selves again, then go to Bowser's Castle and save Princess Toadstool! Along the way he will encounter lots of monsters, including Smilax, Nipper, Chain Chomp, Big Bertha, Jelectro, and those old Goombas and Parakoopas! He'll find new items that were not in Super Mario Bros. 1 or 2, Including the Raccoon suit, the Frog suit, even a Hammer Bro. suit that all have special abilities! He'll have to go through 8 perilous worlds, with hundreds of enemies, including Bowser's 7 sinister children! During the game you get to play lots of bonus games, including a game you can play anytime with 2 players. It is a clone of the original Mario Bros., and you can play anytime you want as long as you have a friend!

Graphics 7 out of 10

For a Super Mario Bros. game, the graphics were great! Compared to the other two Super Mario Bros. games, it is like a Super NES game. In fact, when I first saw it, I thought it WAS a Super NES game!

Music and Sound 5 out of 10

Pretty good music, catchy tunes! If you listen to the Bowser Battle music in Super Mario RPG, you'll notice it is just a remake of the Bowser Battle music here!

Game Challenge 7 out of 10

It kept me busy quite a while. The levels are easy at first, and progress slightly in difficulty after each world. Worlds 4 through 6 kept were tough, and I never did make it past world 7 without using the warp whistle, which was disappointing because I wanted to see Ludwig von Koopa! I think this game was really challenging, but don't expect a big challenge out of Bowser. It kind of makes you notice exactly why he needed the Koopalings' help.

Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10

Man, this is the best Mario game I've ever played for the Nintendo Entertainment System! I liked the Koopa Kids, good way to introduce a new character! I like all of it, except I think Bowser was a bit of a let down, and I think they should've gotten Yoshi in there somewhere.


Well, I have to admit that It is difficult doing things such as getting through Iggy's airship, and getting to Ludwig (which, as I mentioned earlier, I never DID manage to do), but once you get more confident that the enemies aren't so tough it's not that hard. I got pretty frustrated during worlds 7 and 8, though.

Replayability 8 out of 10

Are you kidding? This game is always replayable! You have to play it quite a while just to get tired of seeing Wendy O' Koopa, etc. get demolished! The only problem is after a while it gets too easy. But if you don't play it for a while, you will come back with less memory and experience of the game and it'll be almost as good as new!

Overall 8 out of 10

Overall, it's the best Mario game for the NES!
