Who else finds this game underrated? i do! it's been called the black sheep of the Mario games (either that or Super Mario Land). I loved this game since i got it for my NES when i was 7 when it came out including Zelda II (Another game series black sheep) since i loved the first one when i got my NES for my 6th birthday and i thought this was better than the first. However i did research later in my teens when i used the net and found out that America's SMB 2 was NOT the actual SMB 2 but rather a Mario enhanced version of a Japanese game called Doki Doki Panic when the original was more like the original but only difficult, but that was a clever move.
