CNET Editors' review

Hearkening back to the heyday of Nintendo, this game faithfully reproduces the classic Super Mario Bros. Although Mario Forever's graphics and sound aren't identical to those of the original, they're so close most users familiar with the game won't be able to differentiate.

The basic platformer action hasn't changed either. As the feisty little plumber Mario, you traverse different worlds to collect coins while dodging enemies such as malevolent mushrooms and ill-tempered turtles. You won't find an extensive feature set, but you can at least change the keyboard controls or disable the music and sound effects.

However, we do think Mario Forever consumes a bit too much processor time, especially considering its outdated design. But if you were a fan of the 1980s classic Super Mario Bros., then we doubt this freebie will disappoint you.

    "What a waste of time!"

    March 17, 2013  |   By Gameloverforever

    Version: New Super Mario Forever 2012 1.0

    Pros

    At least it didn't crash my pc. It looked so cool.

    Cons

    Downloaded but when you go to open it, it went to a screen that said try again, abort, or quit. I ended up uninstalling it. Very disappointing when you see a cool looking game and wait to download it and then it won't work.

    "Very bad Cannot believe positive comments"

    March 14, 2013  |   By Zanderzzzz

    Version: New Super Mario Forever 2012 1.0

    Pros

    The pros are that you get to waste time installing and uninstalling this abysmal product.

    Cons

    This game is terrible, Its controls like garbage its worthless and absolutely ad infested! I cannot believe the comments it got considering how much it sucked the "one person' who made it should stick to his day job because screwing around with others copyrighted material and absolutely diminishing it's integrity with this garbage of garbage ware. The coder or whatever should be highly ashamed of how terrible this creation is that he let open to the public. Garbage!
