5.0 out of 5 stars The Bros. First Adventure is Back! June 16 2004
Way back in 1985, Super Mario Bros. was a revolutionary game that defined the ever-popular 2D sidescrolling adventure. Age certainly hasn't slowed Super Mario Brothers down one bit. In fact, since this is part of the classic NES it means its a direct port of the original Mario game. This means it was before Saving was thought of.
The graphics may not hold up a candle to what the GBA is capable of but that's because this is the "classic" NES series. This isn't meant to showcase what the GBA can do. This is meant for nostalgia and it is perfectly captured on the GBA this way.
As I said, it's a direct port straight from the NES to your GBA. But it does have one downside. For one, it seems that because of the GBA's screen some things had to be squashed just to be in proportion. This is very noticeable when you rescue the many toads in the castles.
This shouldn't stop you from picking up the game but that's exactly where the other problem lies. Like other classics in the Classic NES series, Super Mario Bros. has already been released several times! If you have a copy of Super Mario Brothers Deluxe that'll do just fine.
I'd easily say this is worth it to put down 20 bucks if you want the original classic. But if you have Super Mario Brothers Deluxe or an E-Reader you may want to grab Zelda instead.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Very near perfect port of the original game. A must have for retro enthusiasts. I have never beaten this game, despite countless attempts. Those original NES games were not at all forgiving and very hard to beat. I pull this one out every couple of days and do my best to conquer this timeless classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars The quintessential classic June 23 2005
Second only to The Legend of Zelda as the "greatest Nintendo game ever" this game is a perfect rendition of the original NES classic, in the palm of your hand. Great for on the bus, showing off to people, and inciting spontanteous goomba-stomping matches with all your buddies that remember the game from long ago. Seriously, unless you still have your old NES out and it still works, this game is a great add to your gameboy library. Sure, the graphics and sound effects are from 1985, but that's part of the point. If you've never beaten this classic, here's your chance.
You can take it anywhere, play 2 players with a pal, link to another gameboy advance for 2P, and other couple of tidbits they don't tell you in the manual: After linking to another unit, you can choose to end the game and the entire game will stay loaded in the memory of the "client" GBA until you turn it off. Also, it works with the GBA wireless adapters if you've got them. Finally, it looks fantastic on the GBA's screen, especially on the "classic" GBA (not the SP) provided you can get the lighting conditions right.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS GAME ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! July 3 2004
By A Customer
(...) writing this from my vacation spot on lopez island. I thought I'd check out the first mario vs bowser game, and I found that IT WAS THE BEST MARIO GAME I EVER PLAYED!!!!!!!!!!! I can see why this game lifted mario to the top of the video game tower of success. this game has goombas on almost every level(goombas are the funnest to kill in my opinion), the famous doo dee doo doo da da tune, and in every castle you fight bowser. the graphics aren't great, but it makes no difference because of the awesome gameplay. In fact, once I started playing, I couldn't stop. rent this game first if you're not sure, I guarrentee you'll be hooked.

Yeah yeah yeah retro gamers will rejoice and blah blah blah but Super Mario Bros Deluxe was way better because it was a game I could beat cause I could save.Hell I think the Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt cartridge was better because on that you could at least continue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like old times...
I played the NES since I was 2 or 3(1994). My favorite game was always SMB 3. But I had SMB 1 also. I can't play my NES because a newer TV. This game is a real die-hard classic. Read more
