Title: Super Mario Bros. 3's only flaw
Posted: October 07, 2007 (04:59 PM)
I've been playing Super Mario Bros. 3 for years, and I used to think it was a perfect game. Today, though, I realized it does have one flaw: world 4 is easier than world 3.

The difference isn't huge, admittedly, but I still say world 3 is a lot rougher. It's bigger and some of the levels are definitely more vicious, requiring more attempts to clear than anything in world 4 really does. The battleship at the end of world 3 is tougher, as well.

Through and through, world 4 is simpler. So the order is backwards of what it should have been, perhaps even backwards of what it was going to be when the levels were originally designed. It's not a big dent in the game's armor or anything, obviously, but it is there. So yeah, Super Mario Bros. 3 isn't perfect (just insanely close).

Is world 3 the one where Mario can go into the clouds, or is that the water one with the boats?

World 3 is the water one and World 4 is the one where things are really huge in some places. The sky one is World 5.

I like to think of World 4 as a "breather" before you get to the really tough parts of the game.

Now that you mention it, world 4, while it has a funny gimmick, is not difficult at all. World 3 is at times - it even has one of the tougher world bosses.
