This is one of the all time greats in the Mario genre and is still one of the best games out there. I have many memories with this game. In my early years I was actually afraid of the first castle with it’s lava monsters and never went beyond it. Then in my middle school years that I conquered my fears and at last beat it. It wasn’t however my first as I had beaten Mario 64 years earlier. Like DKC2 I have learnt and can play some of the songs in the game; the Underground being my absolute favorite.
Now I will playing it again after all these years; reliving the childlike adventures as I help baby Mario find his brother Luigi.
