Call me crazy, but I thought the NES one was actually kinda okay! I'd never actually pay money for it, but I thought it was mildly entertaining!
The SNES one sucked though. That stupid book thing where you had to know (or in my case guess) all that historical crap and then you had to do that jet ski crap just to get that time machine crap to work.
A word of advice, don't play Mario is Missing.
Yeah it was strictly a matter of guessing the answers without even traveling to the time period. That whole surfing part was just the devs way of attempting to make the game 'hip' or something. What was worse is that the ROM I have of it didn't seem to display the mushrooms or spikey balls until they were a few inches in front of you, so if I didn't remember from back in the day you actually had to collect the shrooms, it would just look like a pointless open ocean of whirlpools to endlessly surf in.
Played Mario is Missing a long time ago too. I can see the point in all those educational Mario games Nintendo spit out, but man what a way to rape the characters. They could have at least given Mario a nerdy third brother or something to play as in them so as not to make Mario himself completely lame.
That annoying surf music is still
stuck in my head.
