Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was shocked to see this had no review at all! Mario 3 on the NES was the single greatest platformer of all time. If people haven't discovered how awesome it is then...you hate video games.

The reason I loved this one so much was because it was colorful, it was enormous in levels. Every stage was challenge and there were enough goodies in the game to keep any player amused. Don't get me wrong along with being the best it is also a very challenging game, Expect a few headaches. Every stage was creative and original. The 2 player mode allowed players to team up in an afternoon project to conquer the game. What can I say if you love mario enough get this game and cherish its existence because the remakes never live up the retro classic :)

Long live Mario 3

About the Virtual Console Release of Super Mario Bros. 3:

Before we get to the review proper, fortunately with the advent of the Wii's Virtual Console, for a mere five bucks you can have this piece of gaming history. No hunting around for an old Nintendo, or going with a portable release (which isn't the 8-bit original). Another great thing about the VC release is that if any time you are done with the game, you can simply go back to the Wii menu and suspend the game at whatever point you left it, and return at any time. Don't have time to beat World 4 but you don't want to lose your progress? Just return to the Wii menu and it will automatically suspend! For all the old NES games that's a great feature but especially for SMB3, whose only possible flaw is there is no save system.

So, why be inconvienced when you want your SMB3 fix? Instead, simply get 500 Wii points, download to a Wii Channel, and wa-la, SMB3 in all its origianl 8-bit Glory! What are you waiting for? Buy it!

It's easily one of the best purchases available on the Virtual Console, and the younger generations will have a chance to play this title as well since the old hardware (NES and physical cartridges) are long gone from the market as new items available for purchase. If you have a Wii and want some old school gaming, this is a no brainer purchase.

While you're at it, you may as well pick up the other three NES Super Mario titles (including the previously unreleased 8-bit version of THE LOST LEVELS!). Now if Nintendo would get with Hudson and remake the true lost levels, SUPER MARIO BROS: SPECIAL and maybe even release VS. SUPER MARIO BROS (the arcade version, which has numerous differences from the original SUPER MARIO BROS.
