Here are my genuine opinions on every Mario game I've played, organized by console. I give it a rating on a scale and explain why. This is not an insult towards anyone who may have other opinions on these games.
Ah, the NES. It wasn't any good, it was just first.
|The game is enjoyable to play in short bursts. There's not much else to say about it.||Good|
|While I do enjoy this game, it's a lot more difficult than its predecessor. I don't like it as much, but it's still fun.||Good|
|This game is fine. It's really hard, though.||Decent|
|Have you ever wanted to play a video game solely about doing math? Neither have I, but clearly Nintendo thought somebody did. When I play Donkey Kong Jr., I want to be pushing keys and knocking down fruit, not doing math. Still, this game isn't that bad. It's good for a quick laugh.||Decent|
|When you put it into perspective, it's a good game for its time, but now it's just decent. Not bad at all, but just kind of underwhelming.||Decent|
|Maybe it's just me, but I consider this to be the best of the original NES trilogy. It's just so unique, and it's a lot of fun to play.||Good|
|I do not like this game. The level design is horrid and unfair. It makes me feel like I'm playing the Super Expert 100 Mario Challenge! There is no way to save, go back to previous worlds, or replay levels. However, I can give this game credit for introducing some fan-favorite characters, like Dry Bones, Thwomps, Boos, Chain Chomps, and the Koopalings.||Bad|
|I don't really get this game. What am I supposed to be doing?||Bad|
|This game is mediocre. It's a little boring. While I don't mind it, it's not something I'd go out of my way to play.||Decent|
SNES graphics continue to amaze me to this day.
The console known for being shades of green. Even though it really isn't.
|This game is short and easy, but I still enjoyed it for the hour it took me to beat it.||Good|
|This game is really underrated! It's super creative and I love the soundtrack. The reason it doesn't get a "great" rating is because I found it too short.||Good|
|I didn't even know what Picross was until I played Mario's Picross. I got it so I could take a screenshot for the Game Over page, but then I played more of it. And you know what? It's actually fun. If you can excuse some of the bizarre puzzle descriptions, like "GRAND GOOMBAS," "tinkle," and "mud."||Good|
|Compared to the original, this one is kind of "eh." The music is worse, the graphics are worse, it's pretty much a downgrade.||Decent|
Rare case of a Mario game on PC.
|Like Mario Paint, I thought this game would be stupid at first, but I actually ended up enjoying it. There's something wonderful about playing Go Fish with Mario. Please give me your Big Boos.||Good|
NES-style pixel art is overdone. How about some cruddy N64-like models again?
Game Boy Color
Imagine if "having color" was a selling point in this decade.
Game Boy Advance
One of my personal preferred consoles.
|Eh, I don't think I like this one as much as II and 3. Still not a bad game, though.||Decent|
|I only got this game because the Wii U eShop didn't have the original SNES version. And boy, did I not like this. I never completed the first world. Everything in this game is just inferior, from the uglier palettes to the obnoxious sound effects.||Bad|
|It's the first WarioWare game, but it's one of the weaker ones. It suffers from quite a bit of trial-and-error gameplay. Sometimes, like in Mix & Match and Slick Wheelie, I have no idea what I'm supposed to do. However, there are only a few bad microgames in the over 200. The bonuses are pretty fun. Orbulon's stage is probably my favorite in this game.||Good|
|What do you get when you take the SNES version, downgrade the graphics and music, and add a bunch of quality-of-life improvements?||Good|
|I really like this game. It's a great start to the Mario & Luigi series. It's the most creative, there are lots of unique enemies, the bosses are fantastic, and the entire game is really fun. There are some flaws, like a few annoying characters (I'm looking at you, Starshade Bros.), too many tutorials, and the entire Oho Ocean Seabed segment, but it's still a great game. If you want to play a Mario & Luigi game, you can't go wrong with this one.||Great|
|I think this is better than the SNES version. It makes 100% completion a lot more manageable by including a checklist of what you do and don't have.||Great|
|This game is pretty great. I like Kiddy Kong and don't find him annoying, the Animal Buddies are fun to play as, there are lots of secrets, and the new overworld map is fun to explore. While I don't think it's as good as DKC2, it's pretty close.||Great|
|What even is this game? Why does it exist? The wonky controls were kind of fun at first, but then I realized, "Wait, I have to play the entire game like this!" I quit after the first world, and I don't plan to come back to it anytime soon. On the plus side, I do like the sprites and art style.||Decent|
Never personally owned a GameCube, and man, is its game quality all over the place.
I kept losing my DS stylus.
|Not a big fan of this one. Obviously, there's the bad controls, but the constant character-switching didn't do much for me. The new content is questionable at best (why are half of the new stars obtained by catching rabbits, and what are the Silver Stars besides easier Red Coins?).||Decent|
|This game is good. Not my favorite WarioWare game, but it's still good. Some fun stylus-based activities here.||Good|
|The better Mario & Luigi game on the DS. Still not the best of the entire series, however. I'd rank it between Dream Team and Paper Jam. Still, I do really like this one. While I do prefer Bros. Points, the Bros. Items were a nice change of pace. The game's soundtrack is good, and the areas are creative. Difficulty didn't bother me too much.||Great|
|This game is pretty mediocre. I played it once, got all the Star Coins, and can't really remember anything else about it.||Decent|
|My opinion on this game switches every time I play it. Sometimes I like it and other times I don't. When I first played the game, I remember feeling really disappointed because it was weird and just not fun. I played more and I liked it, but when I replayed it, I found it tedious and boring. I think the cause of this is because there are really good parts of the game, like the Bowser segments at the start from Cavi Cape to Bowser's Castle, to the atrocity known as the Energy Hold.||Bad|
|The game-making section of this game doesn't feel very developed. It's overly complicated and not much fun to use. I don't really care for the records or comics, either. The microgames are incredibly basic, even by WarioWare standards. Still, it's a good game. I like the Job Center missions, the actually entertaining tutorials, and Body Rock.||Good|
The era of motion controls is beginning, with more broken controls than you can desperately shake a Wiimote at, trying to get them to respond for long enough to let you win.
|The gameplay is incredibly fun, there are lots of hidden secrets, there's a post-game, the bosses are great, and I love the soundtrack. SPM works for what it is, although there are better games out there.||Great|
|I replayed this game to refresh my opinion on it, and I still didn't like it. I just rushed through so I could beat Bowser and then I stopped playing. The graphics are sub-par, the soundtrack is horrendously bland and boring, and some galaxies aren't very fun (I especially wasn't a fan of Gold Leaf, which is just a copy-paste of Honeyhive).||Bad|
|I used to like this game before I realized how much better Melee was. This game is too slow-paced and floaty for my tastes. Even when I was a super big fan of Brawl, I still despised the Subspace Emissary. I found it incredibly boring and not fun at all.||Bad|
|This was the first Wii game — and also the first Mario game — I've ever played. Did I have fun with it? Yeah, I guess.||Good|
|Technically, this is WiiWare, but I think it's close enough to fit in my Wii section. So how is this successor to D.I.Y.? Well, for one, it removes the main thing about D.I.Y.; the actual D.I.Y. portion. But the word "showcase" in the title already implies that. This game is made up of two good stages and two mediocre stages. I personally think the pre-made comics in this one are better than the ones in D.I.Y., too. Eh, the game is fine enough, but if you want to try WarioWare, don't start with this game.||Decent|
|I don't dislike this game as much as Galaxy 1. Don't get me wrong, it's still a bad game, but at least there are brief bits of enjoyment in it. Let me count: the Mario Squared Galaxy was creative, and I liked the Sea Slide Galaxy, and... yeah, that's really it. The bad galaxies greatly outnumber the good ones.||Bad|
|This was the first Mario Party game I've ever played. I just assumed that every game took place in a singular vehicle. But you know what? I actually like it. I'm actually compelled to care about other players' turns to think about how it will impact me later. It feels like everybody's working together as a team, but they're also trying to sabotage each other at the same time, which makes for some interesting gameplay.||Good|
Best handheld console, period.
|A little bland, but still good. Is this better than 3D World? I'm not entirely sure. If you want Mario on the 3DS, this game isn't a bad choice.||Good|
|I'm gonna say it: this is the best Paper Mario game in the series. Every time I play it, it just gets even better. It's amazing because it has no ten hour-long cutscenes of annoying characters, unlike TTYD. I spent every second of the game battling, exploring, or solving puzzles. The game looks visually great, the music is wonderful, the stickers feel unique and are all fun to use, and the fact that most Thing puzzles have multiple solutions helps them a lot. The battles are fast-paced and don't rely on cheap RNG-based mechanics. Yeah, there aren't many unique characters, but who plays Mario for the story? Playing Sticker Star for the first time, I had a moment where I realized that a video game was making me genuinely happy, and I'll never forget that.||Great (but maybe that's an understatement)|
|I don't get the hate for this game. People always say, "oh, there are too many tutorials!" Bowser's Inside Story has way more tutorials than Dream Team. The dream world is a much more interesting and actually fun version of Bowser's body. Overall, this game is pretty great.||Great|
|I don't get the hate for this game, either. The lack of original characters didn't bother me very much, and all the paper additions were fun. The Papercraft Battles were about as much fun as eating a cactus, but at least they're over fast. I consider this weaker than Dream Team, but I still really like it.||Great|
|The voice acting is a lot of fun to listen to, the minigames and records are great rewards, the microgames are still awesome, the challenge modes are creative, and it's overall an incredibly fun experience. It's so easy to pick up and play for a little bit. All the controls, even the microphone and the gyroscope, work perfectly and never feel unresponsive. If you want to play WarioWare, and even if you don't, please try out this one.
This game, along with Super Paper Mario, is the reason I joined this wiki in the first place. While reading the Underwhere Road and Overthere Stair articles, I noticed some typos and thought, "huh, somebody should fix those." Then, when I got WarioWare Gold, I noticed a navbox missing from Rhythm Tweezers. I added it, went back to the Super Paper Mario pages to fix the typos, and here I am today.
I was one of the few people to buy a Wii U. Nowadays it sits as my personal dust collector machine.
|Uh, it's fine, I guess. It's a mix of good and bad minigames. The good outweighs the bad, but it's still not something you should spend 60 dollars on.||Decent|
|This game is good until World Mushroom. It kind of feels like they ran out of ideas at that point. None of the
|No real opinion on this game. At first, I thought it was actual NES games and levels, but turns out it's just tiny segments. I was disappointed at first, but then I learned to appreciate it for what it was.||Decent|
|Forgettable and mediocre newcomers. There are few reasons to play this over Ultimate.||Decent|
|Lunar Magic is better.||Good|
Name a more overrated console, I'll wait.
