Super Mario RPG

Super Mario RPG for the SNES “contains token similarities to many other Square role-playing games such as Chrono Trigger and the Final Fantasy series with a story and action-based gameplay based on the Super Mario Bros. series.” ScrewAttack takes a look back at this title after the break.

Mario’s enemies are visible in the field; a battle ensues only if he comes in contact with one. This allows the player to evade unnecessary battles, though some fights are necessary to advance the plot.
