FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4.

What do these ratings mean?

Few games in the history of plumbing have annoyed me as this has. Why? You may ask. The reason is simple: This is super mario bros. It's not new. It's the same game with just a few new gimmicks, which are completely unneccesary. Take for example, the giant mushroom. This turns mario into a behemoth that can crush anything in his path. The problem is, this is absoloutely useless. Firstly: it only works properly on certain levels. Secondly: By destroying everything in your path, you may wreck a block that contains a valuable power-up.

For a while, I actually liked this game. It was chance to bring part of my childhood with me in my pocket. Now however, I can see through the cracks and find myself playing only the (brilliant) mini-games and completely leaving the main game alone.

I can't help but feel that putting in the original game with it's original graphics and sound, would have been a much better choice. It certainly would have made me a lot happier. And would have given the game an  A.
