Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Zombie Mario In 1985, Nintendo stunned America as it proved with Super Mario Bros. that there is a market for video games. America sat back and whispered that the Japanese company will fall hard on its back just like Atari, who had shattered years before like glass falling from a skyscraper. Nintendo kept rolling, though, with classics like Pac-Man, Paperboy, Metroid, SMB3, Legend of Zelda,and Duck Hunt.America woke up, and realized the dawn of a new era was upon them.When Nintendo was really famous,they thought about combining two games into one. Thus, Mario Bros./Duck Hunt surfaced. This game is one of the oldest Nintendo games ever.

Graphics: A+

As one of the first Nintendo video games, Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt revolutionized graphics for the NES. Super Mario Bros., being the first video game, is now the building blocks for today's games. Duck Hunt has superb graphics. I am amazed that two games with such fine done graphics can be fit into a singe cartridge.

Music and Sound: B+

The SMB soundtrack is great, but it is missing variety. There is only three tunes in the game. Despite that, SMB has lots of great sound effects. Duck Hunt has only a few sound effects and one tune,but otherwise it fits the game.

Game Challenge: A

Many gamers will find the earlier levels easy and the later levels hard in SMB. The later levels are like the earlier levels only they have more enemies and tough jumps.The castles from 4-4 to 6-4 are exact copies of castles 1-4 to 3-4 only adding more rotating fireballs. In 7-4 and 8-4 you have to take an exact route to Bowser, making these the most annoying levels. Duck Hunt is easy in game A, where you shoot one duck. Game B and game C are harder because you shoot at two targets instead of one.

Replayability: A-

SMB is repayable because it is a challenge to beat every level from 1-1 to 8-4 in one sitting. It is also a challenge to find the three warp zones and -1-1. Duck Hunt is not always hard unless you play game B or C. Game A is relatively easy even when the duck starts to fly fast.

Game Value: A

This game is definitely worth the $$$$ because it's 2-in-1. The only game that could be worth more $$$$ is Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt/Track because it's a 3-in-1. A game doesn't need to be a 3-in-1 to be great. Mario Bros./Duck Hunt proves that.

Overall: 9.5 out of 10

Overall,this game is one of best classics (along with Zelda, Metroid, and SMB3) to date. The game has superb graphics, music, and challenge. The game also has a chockful of goodies to find. This is a must have game for NES owners.
