Super Mario Bros./ Duck Hunt

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Dee The Mario Brothers are probably the most popular characters on any Nintendo system, whether it be NES, Super NES, Nintendo 64, Game Boy or Virtual Boy. But here is the first Mario game ever on a system that you can switch games on. This is a classic, and has with stood the test of time for over a decade, and will continue to withstand that test long into the future.

Graphics 7 out of 10

The graphics are decent considering that the game was made in 1985, they're certainly better than a lot of other NES games. Duck Hunt's graphics are excellent, the ducks fly rather smoothly, and the clays slice through the air like a hot knife through butter. And then there's the dog, he's awesome! From the wagging of the tail when he first enters the screen, to the snickering when you miss a duck. Mario's graphics are ok, not quite as good as Duck Hunt's, but they're pretty good. The fireworks aren't bad, and Bowser is pretty cool.

Music and Sound 6.5 out of 10

The music wasn't bad either, it is definitely the corner stone for the other Mario games. Duck Hunt doesn't play much music, only at the end of a round, but most of the time it's rather catchy, unless of course you miss too many ducks in which case your game is over, and then the music isn't meant to be catchy. I think the best Music in Mario Bros. is played while you're in the dungeon, and it kind of sounds like Zelda. It's a mysterious kind of music until you get to Bowser, then it get's more exciting.

Game Challenge 8.5 out of 10

Duck Hunt gets extremely challenging as you progress, in the beginning the ducks fly rather slowly, and your allowed to miss 4 ducks, and still go on. But once you reach level 20, oh boy, those ducks fly really fast, and zig zag all over the place, and your not allowed to miss any, but it sure is thrilling! Mario is difficult compared to the Super Nintendo version, it's harder to jump, and that is critical, if you can't jump you're gonna die. It just takes a lot of getting used to, eventually it gets easier.

Game Play-Fun 9.9 out of 10

Although the graphics aren't the best, and the buttons don't always do what you'd like them to, the games are still great. And I wouldn't recommend giving up too easily, it takes time to complete both games, but it's definitely worth it.

Replayability 5 out of 10

You may end up playing the last level several times, it you don't do it just right, and if you warp, watch out. Chances are you won't finish the game.

Overall 7.5 out of 10
