Summary: There is a noticeable lag with the Wiimote which makes the games virtually unplayable. It is impossible to move and jump precisely so lots of times, you fall into "holes" and die even though you thought you jumped. Extremely frustrating. If you do a google search, this issue will pop up. Supposedly, there is no lag if you use Gamecube controllers (which can plug into the top of the wii). Looking to test this out.
Great Games (obviously), but Mario deserves better than this!

Summary: Great Games (obviously), but Mario deserves better than this! Twenty five years is a long time in the entertainment industry. Although at the time of this compilation's release (2010), Mario had actually been around thirty years, this was the twenty fifth anniversary of the debut of the SUPER MARIO series.
Summary: ...When I realized this was a direct - DIRECT - port of the SNES's Super Mario All-Stars. I mean, they called it Limited Edition, so I thought it'd be something special. I might as well have been playing a SNES emulator! I was so incredibly disappointed!! Of course, if you've never played All-Stars before, this might be a nice place to catch up on the more classic half of the series - and the stuff that comes with it is pretty sweet, too.
Summary: I also have Mario Allstars for my worn out Super Nintendo and I know these games well. The new release for Wii has one very disconcerting error/omission. In Mario 3, you can't save progress. Press (+) button which brings up the pause screen which offers three options: continue, save and continue, save and quit. The last two save options to not work....they perform no function at all.
It is just a ROM of the SNES version of Mario All Stars.

Summary: Wish i was making hat up, but even in the control options menu it shows a picture of an SNES controller. The really sad thing is that it doesn't come with super mario world. Honestly feel kinda ripped off, and i really hope they release a better version for the 30th anniversary.
Summary: First off, the games that it includes are amazing. That isn't the problem (though some people might prefer the original NES visuals). My main issue is that this is essentially just the SNES Mario All Stars game in disc format. SNES games sell for $8 on Virtual Console, but this one is more expensive. Buying the four included games on Virtual Console totals less than the cost of this game.
Summary: I was pretty excited for this title when it was first announced and preordered almost immediately. When I actually got it I was pretty disappointed. Thats not to say that these aren't great games because they are, but way that they were packaged was almost an insult. First the game itself is just ripped straight from the SNES rom. They didn't even bother to update the control scheme in the options. You still see the SNES controller instead of the Wii remote.
Summary: How can they not include, at least, Super Mario World in this set?! The controls don't work right on these games. They "feel," different than with the original console, naturally, but they should have updated the game to fit the controller better. I HATE that when Mario hits the blocks to break them he just keeps going. Because of this you can't run fast and hit several blocks at once. So they completely trashed that fun aspect of the original game.
Summary: Normally, I love most any Nintendo product. But save your money on this one. Kudos for Nintendo and Mario for having a profound effect on popular culture and video games in general - I certainly respect most everything that Shigeru Miyamoto and his team have accomplished in the last 25 years. But this version of All-Stars is nothing but a rehash and an exact replica of the 1994 version of All-Stars from the Super Nintendo.
buy the originals on WII channell to really enjoy these games

Summary: I bought this new game to experience the classic super mario all stars on the wii I spent 29.99. I already had this game for the super nintendo. As other reviewers mentioned, the controls are really bad. I have the original versions of super mario downloaded from the wii shopping chanell. I was able to flip from the Wii version to the Virtual console version. There was definitely a great deal of lag time between the two versions.
