Just beat Super Mario World 100%! Oh, what a classic.
This is absolutely one of the best Mario games ever. To this day I can't pick between this or 3, lol. The graphics are so colorful and detailed for a launch title! The music is top notch. I found myself humming a long to so many level's tunes. The level design was also amazing. When ever I died I felt like it was genuinely my fault. The levels are so fun and the secret exits are a blast to find. The only cheap level,imo, was Special-Outragous. That level sucked and was cheep, but it's only 1 cheap level out of what? 90? lol
I must admit though...I only got 93% on my own...I got stuck here and assumed the remaining levels were in ghost houses. I was right. I have trouble finding the normal exits to ghost houses! No way I was going to go through each one and hopefully find a secret exit! So I looked up which ones had the exist, but found the exist in that ghost house on my own! (except for Valley ghost house ^^;) I don't feel bad about looking up the answer online like I normally do though. Instead of basically making it a chore by looking for the exits myself I found them fast online. Keeping the fun going. It was still very satisfying to see that star on the main menu! I'm still going to stick to my normal 'don't look up the answer to the game online unless I've been at it for months and it's not fun anymore' moto. Don't think I'm going soft! :P
9.5/10 for me. Absolutely fantastic game! Even after playing it for hours today I can still see myself coming back to this game later on. This, ladies and gentlemen, is why the SNES is the greatest gaming console known to man!
DISCLAIMER: This was not meant to be a review. I had no idea my little story of beating the game would turn out so big.

Wario Land II! B-)

Wario Land 2 which is a great game, 'i feel' just isn't quite as good the original. Why? Well for starters the graphics/Art direction doesn't seem quite up to snuff, appealing, or as charming in comparison. Plus the controls while still great don't feel quite as tight and refined...Then again, they're just different which they should be just to make the experience feel fresh. Yet the lack of a SMB3-ish world map which has been replaced with story book chapters is a bit of a downer on top of it all and the ending just doesn't pack that awesome Mullet rockin' punch(at all) in comparison to the original either. Nintendo always seems to make every '2'/first sequal in their franchises an entirely different beast from the first, so when it comes time for the 3rd they knock it out of the park and go back to the roots of the original because it's what the fans have been waiting for. The first sequal is there to freshin things up and to create a brand new experience rather than expanding and retreating on old ground...SMB2, Zelda II, Castlvania II are just a few examples.

Anyways! what i love about Wario land 2 are Wario's new abilities, as in turning into a lumbering hand waggeling zombie, running like a mad man on fire, A floaty misquito/bee bitten blimp, A squashed air swooping bat ect ect. While the Boss battles are also a total blast to go up against, and there are tons of goolay' goodies and treasures for you to find throughout the game if you're a completionist. B-) The experience i found felt like it was 4x longer than the original, so for gamers who like their meaty of the meatiest plaformers look no further. ;) I personally don't give a funk'. :p

Overall...Funky Fun is the game, Wario Land II is the name! A solid Sequal which i feel surpasses the original in ways by offering more variety, a bizzare-er experience and 'color'...if You've got the GBC version that is. I do and it's broken(thanks mysterious eBay seller man! lol) But it's also inferior in ways based on the reasons i previously mentioned.

OVERALL : 8/10 Sunny Sardine Wario Sundays. B-)

I've beaten all 3. And Hah, lets see you take on these 4 NES beasties > Adventure Island, Ninja Gaiden III, Ghosts n Goblins and even Castlevania III. ;)
Those 4 make the ones you listed feel almost like a joyus walk in the MCNugget Land ParkOla...Sort of. :p Double D was mighty challenging, especially the final stage and Zelda II takes some major dedication while 'Ninja Gaiden's' last 3 stages 'and' the final 2 bosses will have you ripping your retro gnarly mullet out of your Surftastic Spiccoli skull! B-)

Still I'd say Adventure Island had the most insanely evil and challenging platforming i've ever experienced in the Land of NIntendo. :o I'd love to see some of you guys take that one and report back to the wavemyster with your puney ammeturish progress muhahahaa B-) Simon Belmont won't even beable to save you this time!

I plan on marking Amagon & Battletoads on my next to 'Destro Destroy' list...And I will, you'll see. ;)

Hmmm, you know...I think I'm going to have to give WL2 the razor sharp Leonardo edge(With Shake it taking the number 1 spot, followed by WL1) on this later entray' in the diabolicly greedy Wario Land-ish' franchise. Sure WL3 has a funky map, a map that also gets completely altered whenever you combine found treasures, it's in Color, plus it shakes things up a bit by changing the story line instead of once again stealing treasure from Captain Syrup and her evil devilish Pirate goober headed gang and doing something entirely different altogether.

That said, I didn't find it quite as fun or as compelling. WL3 is a major time consuming collectathon. it's pretty meaty. Maybe 2x as meaty as WL2...Yet it doesn't stray too far at all from WL2 in the graphical style and controls department! While pretty solid and one of the better Portable plafformers out there overall, i feel that it's the weakest in the WL franchise(Not including WL4 as i haven't had the chance in playing it's totaly gnarlyness yet!) Oh and wait until you see the final Boss! ;) Wicked Plot Twist! hehe.

OVERALL: 7/10 Groovy Wario Waffles! B-)

Just beat this yesterday, for Kirby's 20th birthday :p
Great game! I really liked the last few levels.

Edit : Does it still count if I played this on Wii Virtual Console? I feel unworthy.

Of course it counts. It's the same game, no? :P

I recently went through Super Mario World for the 50 millionth time. It never gets old. Took me 2 hours for 100% completion. I'm also going through Metroid Zero Mission and Super Mario Bros. 2 on the GBA. I have to say I've been Retro'ing it up as of lately.

I'm going through Kirby Dream Land 3, too. It's so amazing... :D

Just for you.

Best damn contra there is! ;)
Hope you experienced this Bill Rizer bad boy on your wonky Malfunctioning Frankenstien of a Tube TV. B-)
Anyways! Are you going to check out Contra II: Super C for the NES? Be warned though it's not up to snuff as the original(just my opnion, and millions of others. lol)....One thing is for sure the soundtrack is extremely dissapointing and forgettable in comparison and the boss battles were pretty generic(At least in the beginning) and unmemorable for the most part and completely paled in comparison to the ones in the original. even the stage design was kind of boring from an artistic standpoint. Plus i felt the 3rd person base areas(Which were just so special & unique for the time) in the original were totaly superior to the top down stuff in II as well. I may sound like I'm harping on Super C, but i still slightly enjoyed it even more so than the balls out 'arcadey' styled contra l III and ReBirh(Yuck!)! :p I see Contra as a 10, while Super C being a 7.5.

Ha ha I'm gonna take this thread back, way back to a time you retro noobs forgot :)

Fired up the old Atari 2600 and finished me some 'Double Dragon' in all its stick figure glory, lol what a cool version.
Then tackled the amazing 'Bump n Jump' ha ha no sign of HD around here baby.
I then proceeded to unpack my boxed up AMIGA 500 with the 500 meg HDD expansion :) and managed to conquer 'Moonstone a hard days knight' and 'Indiana Jones and the last crusade' and the great 'Hostages' awesome stuff. I have started the 'Quest for Glory II' and 'Turrican' retroactive campaigns ;)

All of the sudden i feel so young. :p
I gamed on the Commodre 64 back in the dayzy' with titles such as G.I.J.O.E, Kid Clown, Ghostbusters 2, SCAT and many many more, but sadly i didn't get to play much Atari 2600 other than Pit Fall which was absolutely killer! The Atari 2600 is the only console left i want to add to my collection. Dieing to score halloween!....In time for, Halloween. :P

Ya, forget HD....Give me an Atari, a wooden 27" Tube TV, pitch darkness, crickets and frogs chirping and croakin in the background and all of the bleeps and bloops i can handle. :D

Getting 100 on all levels may lead to insanity though. :o
I've 100%'d it before, but doing so again on the 3DS version is proving difficult >.<

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

Count me as one of the rare few then who prefer Super C to Contra. Those "3D" levels are weaker than Louis Tully's social skills. I much prefer the alternative overhead view of Super C and Contra III. Contra III is the best Contra game in my opinion though I have not played any game beyond with Super C in second. Anyway Retro_on_theGo_in_a_Dojo_with_a_yo-yo, nice find their for $3.00! Despite my distaste for some certain levels, Contra is still a must-have NES classic!
