Summary: All the classic Mario old school games! The graphics are a little more up to date and not all boxy like they use to be but it's the same exact games I use to play as a kid. Hours upon hours of fun!
Summary: I grew up playing the original Mario games so when I saw this I had to have it. This is exactly like the Mario All Stars that came out for the Super Nintendo minus Super Mario World, which is too bad. The game comes with a soundtrack CD with title songs from most of the Mario games which is so cool, and even better are the sound effects from the original Super Mario Bros...like "game over" and "coin" - which are perfect for ringers on my cell phone.
Summary: Love this game as much now as when I was a kid. Turn the WII remote on its side and it feels like the original Nintendo controller. It's perfect for all us 30-somethings out there who want to get back a piece of our childhood. There's a couple of minor tweaks to background graphics and music, but the games are all still in original form. The "save & quit" feature is one very welcome addition - no more 5 hour game sessions just to save the princess!
Summary: Although this is little more than a re-release of the super nintendo game (Personally, I wished they had added an updated Super Mario World too), the game plays well, and is what I expected out of it. I haven't listened to the bonus CD yet, but I enjoy playing the game almost daily. The updated backgrounds and having all of the games on one disc, as well as being able to 'save' checkpoints on the game was the reason I bought this. Overall, a good game for a Mario fan.
Summary: I was so excited to have seen this special Super Mario All Stars for the Wii in an electronic store. I am not much of a modern gamer, though I do enjoy many Wii games. Old school Mario is my favorite and I just had to buy this right away. So, we bought it and I played it and the graphics look exactly the same as they would on the Super Nintendo or Game Boy system. I was tickled. This also came with a CD with the Mario songs, noises and what-not for the devoted Mario fan.
Summary: To celebrate the 25th Aniversary of Super Mario Bros. for the NES, Nintendo has re-released the SNES remake of the original series of Mario games for the NES. If you remember All Stars for the Super Nintendo, this is the same game for Wii with no changes, similar to games for the virtual console. I remember playing this game a lot as a kid, including countless hours of Mario 3 Battle mode with my brother (the enhanced All Stars version, not the original in-game battles).
Summary: I am so glad i pre-ordered this game on the second release (March 13th) ! I logged in today to notice it was no longer available for purchase through Amazon. This game is excellent! i have tons of fun with my family and friends! I highly recommend this game, if you havent purchased this game yet, do so before its completely gone forever!
A great deal if you're not the type to gripe about little things.

Summary: I feel that this game is a strong value, no matter what the detractors may say. It's 3 of the most legendary games of all time on 1 disk, PLUS the lost levels... for the current Nintendo gaming system. No virtual console, no bull. Period. For 30 bucks. I bought the original SNES cart for this when it first came out (16 years ago now, I think?) I believe it was $49.99 back then and played the hell out of it.
Summary: ...but do you people complain that the virtual console titles don't have improved graphics? You're getting 4 games for $30 which is what it would cost if you bought each one separately via VC... plus you get the book and the soundtrack. Seems like a good deal to me.
