Everyone is raving about the SNES Mini. That's why we're choosing the best SNES games of all time. You just have to have played these!
Good old Super Nintendo is experiencing a small rebirth with the SNES Classic Mini and gives all Nintendo fans the opportunity to rediscover the best SNES games of all time. A golden age of video games dawned with Nintendo's Super Nintendo and the games can still delight young and old at the same time.
That's why we're introducing you to the best SNES games of all time and sharing memories we made with Nintendo's gray console masterpiece. After this story you will simply have to pull out the SNES classics again and want to play all of the titles again. Grab your friends and go on a nostalgia trip. In any case, we wish you a lot of fun!
The first and one of the best SNES games was Super Mario World. The Jump & Run set a high standard for all subsequent platformer with its 96 unique levels, hidden secrets and abbreviations. The colorful and large sprites showed us what the SNES console was really capable of. And so we spent hours discovering and exploring the mysterious Star Road. The first appearance of the dinosaur Yoshi should also bring us many more games with the Nintendo mascot. Thank you, Super Mario World, for all the great memories with the SNES!
Street Fighter II Turbo is represented at the SNES Mini and offers fast-paced thrashing action. But with its direct successor, Super Street Fighter II, Capcom was able to serve up the best Street Fighter II title for the SNES and the best fighting game at all at the time. With four new fighters we pounded our way through new game modes until the controllers glowed and kept pressing the wrong button when selecting characters. The pink costume again ?!
Donkey Kong Country: Diddy's Kong Quest
When Donkey Kong Country first appeared, the graphics took our socks off. The 3D models digitized on 2D sprites were not the only qualities of the rare title. As a platformer, Donkey Kong Country had its own rhythm and a certain energy that made the game on the SNES unique.
Until Diddy's Kong Quest came out a year later. The game put the crown on it all again. The graphics were a bit better, the levels were more sophisticated, the bosses were more interesting, and there was more to collect. Unfortunately, Diddy's Kong Quest is not represented on the SNES Classic Mini, so you have to chase the original SNES cartridge or play the title on the virtual console of various Nintendo consoles.
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
While 3D graphics were already making great strides towards the gaming community, Nintendo concentrated on beautiful hand-drawn 2D sprites with Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. The game sometimes had the best graphics on the SNES and the specially built-in Super FX chip made our mouths open wide. Even if the whining Mario baby was annoying not just once, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island should be on every list of Super Nintendo games that a SNES fan must have played through.
In addition to the big action role-playing games like Secret of Evermore or Illusion of Gaia, there was also the great Terranigma. It came out as one of the last big titles for the SNES while the Nintendo 64 was already in the wings. US players still envy us Europeans for this gem, because Terranigma never appeared in the US. Together with Soul-Blazer and Illusion of Gaia, it formed an unofficial trilogy.
But what made Terranigma so great was the fabulous graphics and the deep and almost philosophical story about the creation of heaven and earth (according to the translation of the original title). And what didn’t we have a big lump in our throats during the quiet and thoughtful end credits! That was a truly Hollywood-style soundtrack.
With Secret of Mana we were able to make ourselves comfortable on the couch with two friends and the three of us explored the world of action role-playing games together. Secret of Mana was Square's version of an action adventure like Zelda and was able to cast its spell immediately with its colorful graphics, wonderful soundtrack and tactical real-time combat system. The fabulous German translation, which is unfortunately not available on the SNES Classic Mini, did the rest and made us and our friends smile more than once.
Of course, when it comes to a story about the best SNES games of all time, Super Mario Kart is a must. The Nintendo speeder was the epitome of multiplayer co-op and made our thumbs glow. A variety of items such as turtle shells, bananas and mushrooms made Super Mario Kart a wild roller coaster ride. We spent countless hours in the battle mode and measured ourselves against our friends in it. Fortunately, you can now relive the wild head-to-head races on the couch at home with the SNES Classic Mini.
We in Europe never officially enjoyed Chrono Trigger. But with the SNES Classic Mini it is included in the package. Three of Japan's greatest makers worked on Chrono Trigger: Hironobu Sakaguchi from Final Fantasy, Yuji Hori from Dragon Quest and Akira Toriyama from Dragon Ball. The result was Square's best role-playing game for Super Nintendo.
In the time travel role-playing game we follow the story of a young hero and other amiable characters, which extends over several time levels. At the end there were a total of 13 different endings to marvel at. With its ingenious gameplay, inspiring soundtrack and wonderfully told story, Chrono Trigger has withstood the test of time very well.
Super Metroid is a legend. It showed us that even a SNES game can have a grown-up and dense atmosphere and convey the queasy feeling of isolation. But it also gave us enough resources and so we were able to find our way around this large game world step by step and master it. The screen-filling boss opponents were a feast for the eyes and the gameplay offered crisp action and a wealth of secrets. No Super Metroid review can end without mentioning the sci-fi soundtrack. These spherical sounds were a milestone on the SNES, which can now also be admired on the SNES Classic Mini.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Our first big adventure on the SNES began with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. We were woken up by Zelda's voice on a rainy night and set out armed only with a lamp to rescue her from her dungeon. We heard about the fabulous master sword, solved countless puzzles and defeated the dark magician Agahnim - only to discover that the game was far from over! A whole shadowy world was still waiting to be explored by us!
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past offers with its intricate but fair puzzles and dungeons, its memorable boss opponents, the crisp action combat system and the glorious soundtrack an all-round perfect adventure package that simply remains unbeaten on the SNES.
