I feel like all the sequels - 2, 3, and World - succeed at feeling like "a big adventure", but 3 and World both do so on a macro level, with the map screen and short one-note levels, whereas 2 is more "episodic", where each level is an adventure in miniature.
Big SMW pet peeve from childhoodean days: You can use the Star Road to advance to later worlds' entrances, but you can't get off and explore that world! The only destination you can exit at is Bowser's Castle! It's like if the Warp Zones only took you to 8-4. Yeesh!
