Summary: The games are fine but the price is simply too high. Especially since you can purchase these games for $5 each from the Wii's built in internet shop and download them directly on your Wii where they can be played without putting a disc in/ Nintendo Wii literally offers the same product with better features for less elswhere.
Summary: I ordered this game for my children and was very happy to hear that the SNES title had come to the WII. Upon playing this game, I was very disapointed. It is clear this is a copy and paste game for cash..... The picture for the controls is still a picture of the SNES controller. For the price I paid, I expect them to at least fix this. The game itself is solid, same as all snes and nes versions, nothing new. The music CD it comes with was another bomb...
Perfect for those who do not have the original SNES cartridge this is based on

Summary: In 1993, Nintendo decided to re-release the original NES Super Mario Bros games PLUS the version of Super Mario Bros 2 that was only released in Japan all on one SNES cartridge and call it Super Mario All Stars. Then they took it up several notches by updating the graphics and sounds of each individual game as if they were played as 16-bit SNES titles.
Summary: This is a good buy/gift for a Mario collector, and/or someone who wants to be able to (legally) play a port of the SNES Super Mario All-Stars on the Wii, and (legally) listen to some old and new Mario tunes on a CD. I bought it because I'm a fan with a scholarly interest in the history of technology in general and video games in particular. This is what you'll get if you make the purchase.
Some of the best games ever, in a rushed mess of a port.

Summary: First, something needs to be made very clear- this is an EXACT port of the standard Super Mario All-Stars as it was on the SNES. When I say exact, I mean just that. There are no improvements made to anything, no enhancements, no widescreen option, no extra games to unlock, nothing. Heck, even the SNES controller appears when you're selecting files on the main menu, showing what button does what. Shouldn't -that- at least have been changed?
Summary: Was real excited when they announced this game. 25 years of super mario brothers. Figured they would go all out for this. I was wrong. First the wii game. It holds SMB 1, 2 and 3 along with lost levels. These are the SNES versions. A great game collection and all play real well and are still as fun as they always were, but nothing was redone. And I mean nothing. When you start the game it gives you the button layout instruction using the SNES buttons.
Summary: Super Mario All-Stars - 25th Anniversary Edition (Wii) I was really excited about getting this game and reviving all the fun I had when I used to play it on my snes, but I was rather disappointed. It is exactly the same format as before, which is great, but I expected it to have been adjusted a little, to accomodate the Wii remote.
