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: 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.
Summary: So after seeing this for sale for $110 in my city, I found it ALOT cheaper on Amazon so bought it. I mean how cool would it be to play this on a newer system?!? Welll NOT COOL AT ALL.. impossible to play with the origional WII controller, so I bought the 'old style' flat sideways one instead. The timing is off when you try to run fast & jump, I didnt even get past the first level before I turned it off & stored the game away on the shelf.
Great Games (obviously), but Mario deserves better than this!

Summary: 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. The real problem with this release is as far as actual game content goes it only covers the first three years of Mario's career (1985-1988, which is the time period when the four NES Mario games were made.
Summary: The saying 'Don't meet your childhood heros' rings true. I have happy memories playing the Mario franchise. Yet now I meet him again I see how poor the game is compared to modern ones. It is tedious and boring. I wish I had not bought this game.
Summary: This game is exactly what you'd expect. A direct port of the original Super Nintendo game, Super Mario All-Stars. Unfortunately, this is better suited to the virtual console than a Wii disc priced at £20, even when you factor in the audio soundtrack thrown in. To add insult to misery, this isn't even the updated version, giving you the boring green-hatted Mario clone in place of the unique Luigi character added in the later release of All-Stars for the SNES.
Summary: Well, Nintendo really have got the nerve of the devil, this is a crude port from the ghost of Christmas's long past. If Nintendo wonder why people install emulators on their consoles, this is a classic reason why they do. Much is made of piracy, and quite rightly so, but this is an example of just how software producers sometimes rip off the public, and have done for many years.
Summary: I believe that this game is an absolute rip off. Although the games are still playable, it has cost Nintendo very little to release 4 NES games updated to SNES quality on a Wii disk. This game is just another way for Nintendo to make money by ripping off their fans. At the very least, this disc should have included Super Mario World, Yoshi's Island, Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine.
Summary: If you have played Super Mario All Stars before on the Super Nintendo, don't expect anything new, it's exactly the same, just on the Wii, no bonus content and not even Super Mario World. If you want it, and don't know about emulators, it's probably worth getting.
