    I always loved this game and one of the first games i got for my 7th birthday 23 years ago when i got my NES along with Mario 1. This game kicked all kinds of ass and still holds up today especially in it's updated Super Mario All Stars remake.

    I didn't realize at the time that the US version of SMB 2 wasn't the real SMB 2 when the real one was in Japan that was much the same as the original but more difficult and the US SMB 2 was really a mario enhanced version of Doki Doki Panic until i was 17 when i did research on the internet.

    Still this game was a fresh and unique idea for it's time until SMB 3 blew it away

    I Love it too!!! :D 
    I really couldn't care less that it wasn't originally a "Mario" game
    it's an awesome game that is still entertaining to this day!!!
    to me this game will forever be Super Mario Bros. 2 while "Lost Levels" is SMB 1.2)

    It's not a real Mario game, lul!

    Not to say the game wasn't fun. Had a blast playing it.

    I love SMB2 (especially since you can pull up items), but IMHO SMB3 is my all time favorite Mario game. (Tanooki suit FTW!)

    All-time favorite for me was Super Mario World, but I did love Super Mario Bros 2. I didn't know it wasn't the real Mario, but I am glad they did what they did. I probably would have begged my parents for any Mario 2, and if Nintendo brought out the Mario 2 we got under another name with no mario, I may never have had the enjoyment of playing it. I still want to see the return of Wart.
