Summary: This is a wonderful game that brought back so many special childhood memories. It is easy for all ages and levels to play. My family, ages 39 to 7, all enjoy playing the game together as a team. The adults enjoy reminiscing while the children enjoy experiencing the classic graphics for the first time. My only criticism is to make sure you fully read the directions prior to playing. It is not self explanatory or instinctual.
Summary: Just download the original games on the eShop or the Wii Shop Channel. It's much easier, faster, and it will save you about $10+ dollars. Also, you can purchase the CD for a low price on Amazon. Overall, the prices are too high just because it's "limited edition". By the way, the updated graphics and the controls to me don't feel right. Don't waste your money. This item is not worth it.
Summary: Nothing, but nothing can top the experience of playing the first three installments of "Super Mario Bros.," plus the "Lost Levels" thrown in for good measure. This 25th anniversary edition for the Wii is a direct, 100% unchanged copy of the "All Stars" game made for Super Nintendo a quarter-century ago. It was a great game then, and it holds up well despite the lack of even a single change, addition, or extra feature.
Advertised as Utlimate Bundle but that is NOT what you get for the price!

Summary: Buyer beware...I thought I was getting the NES Ultimate Bundle but if you read the fine print, it's the Basic Bundle you are receiving. Very misleading and very disappointing. The package never arrived as scheduled. I had to inquire about it and was told it was probably lost but they did ship out another package right away. Read every little detail in the description since what you are buying may not be what you are getting. Buyer beware!
A rerelease of a classic remastering of Mario's four platforming adventures from the Nintendo Entertainment System.
17 May 2014
Summary: Timeless games that require no introduction, this 1993 release for the 16 bit Super Nintendo collected remastered versions of all four side scrolling Mario platformers that had originally appeared on the NES. These 1980's classics were faithfully ported over with graphical and audio enhancements that made them feel right at home on Nintendo's 16 bit machine.
Pros: Retail release, faithful emulation of a timeless classic, and a widescreen mode that automatically adds pillarboxing (unlike the Virtual Console).
Cons: Poor bonus material that doesn't help justify the asking price for what amounts to a single Virtual Console SuperNes title on a disc.
Summary: Love all of the old games but there is a latency issue. I died more on the first level than I have died in all my years of playing Mario from the early 80's into the 90's. You have to hit the jump button twice to get the characters to respond. Overall, I would have wanted to spend 1/2 of what I paid for the game.
