Game Review (written by Rjamisonf) Added on: 11/28/2006
Mario Brothers 2 is a decent game. This particular game does not follow the same gameplay, as Super Mario Brothers or Super Mario Brothers 3. 2 Was never intended to a part of the Mario series. At the last minute it was changed. Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Toad replaced the original playable characters. This was because Nintendo realized that the current game would flop. Mario was added to save the game and promote sales.
In this game you still run and jump.
But you are unable to come into contact with any enemy. You can't jump on them either. You must pick up and throw vegetables to defeat the enemies; such as radishes. There are also potions that have effects on you. The graphics are decent. They are good for a NES system. They are colorful and quite cheerful. Back to the gameplay. It is fairly simple. You can run and jump. You can also pick up and throw objects.
This game actually requires a but more thinking than most Mario games. There is a bit more strategy required. For example: at the end of one level there is a giant bird. Since you cannot jump on him like Mario or Mario 3 you have to figure

out another way to defeat this boss. If memory serves, you have trick the boss into hitting itself. Something like getting his fire to deflect back at himself. I can't remember. The point is, while this game is similar to the rest if the Mario series there are distinct differences.
1. You cannot jump on enemies.
2. There are vegetables and potions instead of mushrooms.
3. You do not break open blocks to get items; they are found freely on the map.
4. There are doors that you may enter instead of going in pipes.
So, to summarize: this is a one of a kind game within the Mario series. It has decent and colorful graphics. It's gameplay is similar to that of the rest of the series. I have found the game to be a bit more thinking based than other Mario games.
As far as a game: it is not that bad. It is fairly entertaining. But keep in mind: this is not the gameplay you are used to from the Mario series. Still a good game. Keeps you entertained and having fun. Mario Brothers 2 is a unquie member of the Mario series. Download today!
