Hardest Mario Games
The Top Ten
So hard haven't beat it after like 30 years
The original Super 2, this was not originally released in America because it was deemed to difficult for Americans.
This is literally the worst design decisions Nintendo has ever made to be honest. It's somehow still fun for me to play, but half the level mechanics are like Mario Maker.
What about mario and luigi: paper jam?V 10 Comments
This game is EZ I beat it when I was 4 and even then it took 4 hours to beat Bowser and his hot tub. (Including getting there)
This game is easily one of the best, also very challenging!
Just beat this game recently some levels are easy but others seem like they are impossible
This is so hard! The first world in the game is harder than The Perfect Run in Super Mario Galaxy 2! - darthvadernV 8 Comments
Best Mario game ever I played
Each of the first 7 worlds provides unique challenges, but world 8 combines all of your prior experiences and skills. Without an acute knowledge of all of the games mechanics, world 8 would be nearly impossible. I have only beaten it after hours of grueling farming for secrets and Easter eggs to help me along my way.
Hard for me as well, I got to world 2 tower and its painful for me, recommend two players.
Gosh The fortress and the sky ship levels were most challengingV 4 Comments
Grandmaster Galaxy: The Perfect Run. I have only beaten that level twice in my 5 years of playing the game. SMG2 is one of the greatest games of all time however.
The motion control levels are frustratingly hard.
The perfect run...dare I say more
Not as hard as the first one. - Money1208V 2 Comments
This game is easy! Miyamoto even said he wanted to make this game simple for newcomers.
I can't get masked koopas in my game on Wii u very hard the last Star world level the secret exit is hard and I don't know how to fly up there because I'm on The flipping Wii u
I downloaded it on my Wii U and today I made it to Vanilla Dome and I accidently pressed Erase Data!
Very challenging, especially the star world levels.V 3 Comments
Hardest 3D Mario only due to the fact the camera angles are awful... also the flip isn't as responsive as the newer games
All the stupid stars!
What makes this game hard? CONTROLS!
That damned Bowser finale is beyond hard - DubstepLoverV 1 Comment
This is super easy! Beat fairly quick.
This is the hardest Mario Game I've played in my life! I'm still stuck on the first World! New Super Mario bros. U is the second hardest! Super Mario 64 is a piece of cake and Super Mario World isn't too hard either. Super Mario Sunshine isn't even as hard as New Super Luigi U! I don't know if it's just because I'm an excellent gamer, but I've litterally had Super Mario Galaxy for less than a month and I've already beat the final Bowser battle and I only have 50 stars left to collect! You don't know a truly hard game until you've played NSMBU or NSLU! What makes New Super Luigi U so much harder than NSMBU is that you only have 100 seconds to complete each level! It's impossibly hard!
I beat it in a week when I was nine
I couldn't beat the 1st world and I'm 28
Way too easy I beat when I was 8 years old
No way, it's easy!V 2 Comments
This game is not hard until the special worlds. This should not be hear.
It is easy at first but when you beat Bowser in world 8 you goto the special world's and they are hard.
This shouldn't even be on the list, it is too easy. - Extractinator04
The regular worlds are super easy and the early specials are easy, but the later worlds such as Special 6, and Special 7 are so difficult.
Easy at first, quickly gets difficult later in game. Turtles are effectively bombs.
This is Number 1 material for sure. - Extractinator04
The hammer-throwing dude on level 5-2 kills me EVERY SINGLE TIME
It’s too hard for me!
One level is simply long as heck!
The Enemy placement is stupidly difficult!
It's hard! I'm stuck. - Money1208
Gave me a splitting headache. multiple ones.
where did u learn to fly dat ship, toad?!
This game is fun, but it can be challenging, especially the champions road on world crown because there are no power ups, and I died like 70 times so far without making it through the whole level.
Champions road can die
I have trouble even purchasing this game. lol
It's the hardest one to sit through - B1ueNew
Really? - Extractinator04
This game was relatively easy but getting the star coins were challenging.
It iss hardest
Getting the star coins is extremely difficult
World 9-7 is difficult on its own, but trying to get the star coins is like herding cats: you can get 1st and even the second one fairly easily but the 3rd one is insanely difficult. Why this game is below sonic and mario at the olympic games (at the time of writing this) is beyond me.
(I mean the Expert/Super Expert mode, not the game in general.)
Trolls, enemy spam, YES! A level which kills Hammer Bros! - computerfan0
Play it and you will know - DylanheBuilder
No way this was super easy! SMO's Darker Side is easier than SMS's Bianco Hills! - darthvadern
999 korok se I mean moons are hidden in it. Some are extremely hard like herding sheep above the fog. I like Super Mario Odyssey, but it is hard.
Personally, I think that this game has the best story line out of all the other Mario games and it’s challenging at times
EVERYTHING! - spicycheese
The game is fairly easy. Press C and H while starting a level.
How is this not number one
I hit a koopa on the head and he suddenly started to spin all over the place and killed me.
Boom boom - level 3
THE BOSSES ARE SO LONG
This game is easy
Best official Nintendo super Mario registered game I have ever seen
Why is not on list
So unfair! )3
WAIT! They made ANOTHER one? - Money1208
My friend has this and it's really hard. - Connor360
I have the game it really hard
Why did Nintendo make world 7 harder than world 8? Main reason it is hard
World 5 too because of ice, and also world 6 because of variety.
Too easy. I can't beat LEGO Star Wars again and I still think this is overly easy. - Extractinator04
Too many hazards and a trolling pipe in peach beach.
150cc is brutally unfair
It has to be number 1
Damnit! 9.999.999 coins?
ARE YOU SERIOUSLY?! It's very insanity!
This game is as easy as hell
It not that hard! - Money1208
It just takes forever
and is almost impossible to 100% without a walk through!
I beat it when I was 6! - Extractinator04
You'll be hardpressed to find a challenge more frustrating than the 150cc Special Cup
This game is really super easy even 150cc
Also this game is home to the best Rainbow Road of all time
