Hello? Why not? What if I wanted to review Donkey Kong Country and Nostalgia Criticalready did it and then he said I couldn't?
Anyway, I said I was going to review Donkey Kong. Unfortunatly, I just can't see why I need to review games in that generation. Instead, I'm going to review the game that brought gaming back forever. A fun 2D sidescroller, an epic quest, OK, is rescuing a princess from a giant reptilian king called Bowser whereas in the TV shows he's called King Koopa? Well, while Mario games may be weak plotwise, you know your going to get a kick out of a Mario game because it's goddamn MARIO!!!!
Anyways, Super Mario Bros on NES was fantastic! This isn't a game where your in a sewer or fighting a giant hairy ape based on King Kong. No. This is a classic adventure. Now, I played this game on VirtualNES so I'm going to explain the how the controls worked there. You move left or right by using the left and right arrow keys (duh!). To jump, you press X and to speed up you press Z. To all casual gamers, holding down Z is a good thing! Enemies come in all flavors. You've got Goombas, Koopa Troopas, Parakoopas, Piranha Plants, Buzzy Beetles, Lakitu's and of course False Bowsers. Occasionally (and by that I mean flipping twice), you'll come across the water levels. And, well, there OK, but I prefer the normal worlds to be honest. Anyway, not much else to talk about really. There is one more thing! After defeating the real Bowser, you save Princess Toadstool and volia, you completed Super Mario Bros... unless you play the new quest. To be honest, there isn't much changed other than the enemies move faster and Koopas are replaced with Buzzy Beetles.
