This week, Nintendo announced a 99-player version of F-Zero that you can download right now. That’s cool, but you know what they did not announce? That’s right, this is another week with no new classic Nintendo Switch Online games. Thankfully, we still have a lot of 8- and 16-bit games to cover in the review crew, including the three games we’re to talk about today – Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3. There’s no question that these three games are genuine hits, but are they worth playing? To answer that question, I decided to flip through the pages of Electronic Gaming Monthly, The Games Machine, Computer & Video Games and more classic magazines to see what the critics said back when these games first came out. So, go and make sure you’re stocked up on mushrooms and have that tanooki suit ready, because this is another high-flying episode of Nintendo Switch Online Review Crew!
