And for only 8 bucks! There is obviously no point in me reviewing the game itself, since it has been done many many times and by much smarter and more articulate people than me. And most already know how good it is anyway. So I’ll comment on the whole process and ease of purchasing this and playing on your Wii. Purchasing was quick and easy. Instantly after getting payment approved I received my code. It was all numbers, so you don’t have to spend too long typing it on the Wii. I put it in, and it took me to the download page. Download was very very quick and this game does not take up a lot of room. Within minutes of purchasing, I was ridding Yoshi and spitting out fireballs converted from Red Koopas. And the best part is, when you exit the game, you can come back to that exact point next time. So you could be smack dab in the middle of a level, press pause and then the Wii home button and turn off the game. When you turn it back on and select the game to play it, you will return to the Wii Home menu. Select Clear, and it will take you to the paused game! Oh, and since the classic controller plugs into the Wii remote, it is essentially wireless. So in many ways, this is better than actually playing it on the SNES.

I’m jumping into the way-back machine and setting the time for Fall 1991. Hold on tight because it’s going to be bumpy……….
Fall 1991. It was a great time to be a video gamer. For the past 5 years, the NES was on top of the world and home to so many memorable games. While the Sega Master System was its rival, it enjoyed more of a cult following as the majority of video games were released for the NES. But like all good things, they come to an end as Sega ushered in a brand new console. The Sega Genesis, released in 1989, featured new technology and more horsepower to display flashier games and brought a new video games icon to rival Mario and Nintendo. Nintendo responded by releasing the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and a brand new Mario game (Super Mario World.) This was the game packed in with the console and was responsible for maintaining the large fan base the original NES had built up for years. To say this made an impact to gamers would be an understatement.
Hot off the heels of the excellent Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World was the sequel that showcased the SNES’s graphical prowess and ability to display new effects. 8 new worlds to explore (plus the hidden star portals) and 99 levels lie in wait for gamers to explore. It introduced new enemy characters as well as the lovable dinosaur Yoshi. And above all, it was extremely fun to play. From the graphics to the music and the easy to get into controls, this game continued the proud tradition of the revered Mario games and set standards for all future platform games to come.
While there are many ways to track down this title (the original SNES cartridge, the Game Boy Advance title and through Nintendo’s Virtual Console service for those who have a Wii that is online), any true gamer has played this many, many times and can tell you that it was one of the finest games to ever come out from Nintendo.
