Summary: Anyone who knows a fair amount about gaming, hacking, PCs, & CDs, would laugh at this "thing" Nintendo pushed out. For starters, they only put on four games, FOUR, & didn't even take the time to do it right. I've got rom versions of these that play better. Four 16-bit games & charge an arm & a leg. People bought into the scam because of the flashy case & booklet inside, which is sad. The content on this game disc amounts to 18MB.
Summary: Mario 1 - classic Mario 2 - horrid controls, stupid game copied from a jap game with Mario characters tossed in. Mario 3 - best of the series, best power ups and controls. Mario Lost Levels ( Real Mario 2) - unplayable garbage. Mario 1 with 3 times the pitfalls, 3 times the enemies and some of the worst controls in video game history. Should have stayed lost.
Summary: Let me start off by prefacing that I have NOT played this game on the Wii but have played it extensively on the SNES. And to that end the SNES version is excellent. When I played Super Smash Bros. Brawl and played the side-scrolling Super Mario Bros. level re-rendered with the desert-looking background I thought that they should remake at least the original SMB with that quality graphics. Nintendo has the opportunity to do just that here and really dropped the ball.
THE PEOPLE WHO GAVE THIS GAME 5 STARS EITHER WORKS FOR NINTENDO OR IS ON DRUGS!

Summary: I know I will get a lot of hate comments from no life, insecure trolls who practically live in the virtual world searching for 1 star reviews to pick fights with people over the net, but I won't read them anyways so have fun with y'all stupidity LOL. I always thought Nintendo was better than Sega because they were, but at least Sega made a decent collection of Sonic on PS2 and PS3 even with gamegear games. This is absolutely a waste of money to buy.
Summary: Honestly, when I saw this game, I thought it had something to do with being a revision of the Super Mario All-Stars for SNES. Although, I was disappointed to see that it was the EXACT SAME THING! Only thing extra was everything else besides the game. I just consider this a ROM dump on a DVD, which can easily be achieved today in a matter of minutes, FOR FREE on top of that.
Summary: I pirated this game. Say or think whatever you will, but the truth is that even though I got this game for free, I had to write a review to discourage anyone who is considering buying this game. Don't. So.. Its the 25th anniversary of mario. How does nintendo "celebrate?" By charging you 30 dollars for essentially an snes ROM copied on a wii disc, and a nice little booklet and some soundtracks and sound effects.
Ultimately, for a 25th Anniversary of Mario, this collection is poor

Summary: I'll keep this review short and sweet. This collection is more for the fans of the original Nintendo Mario games who want to pay homage and nothing else. The booklet is very thin and doesn't add much value to what is supposedly Nintendo's biggest mascot and the soundtrack CD is literally less than 40min of short sound effects and one track from each Mario game.
Summary: I'm not really one for reviewing stuff, but every so often something makes me come on and post a review of something, and the 25th Anniversary Collection is the first thing in a while to make me do that. First off, I *love* the Mario 2D platformers, New Super Mario Bros Wii is the reason that I bought a Wii, I have played through Super Mario Bros 3 on the NES when it was new, SNES when Super Mario All Stars came out, and Game Boy Advance, and each time I thought it was...
Summary: I see everyone saying that this is just Super Mario All-Stars running on a Super NES emulator. If that is indeed the case, you should know before paying some inflated price that the SMAS versions of both Super Mario Bros. and SMB: Lost Levels are inferior to the NES originals. Well, the graphics are better, that is true. But the physics are incorrect.
