Quote: This was the only game I played for a year and a half to the virtual exclusion of all others. For someone who has gamed consistently since the Atari days, that says a lot about the strength of this game, it’s staying power and the amount of fun I had with my high school friends playing it—particularly in Battle Mode. So many memories I’m not sure where to start, but there was just enough “Question mark” luck, strategy, diversity, taunting and “kingmaker” gameplay in it in battle mode to keep every match fresh even for the limited map selection. Nothing like taking out all three balloons and the bomb with one Star use. Simplicity at its finest. And finally, I reserve Princess Peach as my character if you wish to challenge me.
