Super Mario All-Stars: Limited Edition
Thanks Nintendo! :D
This game brings back the old games because of the games I have played of Mario when I was little.And I want to thank nintendo for making the 25th anniversary of Mario. Thanks nintendo :)
This is the Tickle Me Elmo of 2010
I remember playing Super Mario Brothers on my old NES and SNES. I was shocked when Nintendo released Super Mario Galaxy first. I bought Super Mario Galaxy, but hardly ever play it. I am very happy that Nintendo is now releasing the original games on a disc for the Wii. I requested this for Xmas. I bet most people will be buying at least 2 copies of this, like the Hess trucks. One to play and one to save. This is history in the making. On December 12th, the whole Nintendo Holiday Season will turn red. Everyone will want a copy of this. I predict this will be Nintendo's Tickle Me Elmo of the holiday season and beyond.
Super Mario All*Stars on Wii plain and simple
Super Mario All*Stars for the Wii was released for Mario's 25th anniversary celebration and includes a book on Mario's history, previous music from past games up to today's games, and the game that was originally released on the Super Nintendo, but is now ported to the Wii on the game disc itself. First i'll talk about the game itself. The game Super Mario All*Stars is like I said before a direct port of the Super Nintendo title and has no enhancements whatsoever to it. You can play these Mario titles on the Wii with the Wii remote, the classic controller, or the GameCube controller. Personally I like the Wii remote. If you don't have a Super Nintendo and the game this is a great way to be able to play these magnificent games. If you already have the game for the Super Nintendo and the system itself then there is no real reason to get this version, except if you are a die hard collector like me, then there are the extras that are included, which are the soundtrack of Mario's games and the Mario's history booklet. The soundtrack includes sound effects from different Mario titles and more noticeable music from the different Mario titles. I played this in my Sega Saturn, being the retro nerd I am, and the music overall was pretty good, but nothing special. Now the history book included some artwork and pictures I've never seen before and details about Mario and his creator that I never knew about. This book is interesting to look through once or twice to see cool things, but once again like the soundtrack disc does not have that lasting appeal that was intended for it to have. I gave it a 9 because it delivered on the promise to bring back the Mario 1-3 and The Lost Levels titles that were so popular back in the day. It doesn't get a 10 because of the fact that there could have been more added to the package to make the buyer get the sense that this is actually Mario's 25th anniversary and that Nintendo cares about it's most recognizable icon. If you are a die hard collector or someone who has never gotten to play the original Marios then this is your perfect opportunity to do so, but if you have the Super Nintendo version of the game then I'd be cautious of getting it. Otherwise great game with decent extra's. Check out my other review of MAG on Gamestop's site. Peace Out!
Great game to collect.
for you gamers out there and collectors, a game like this is a most have. the graphics and sound is so improved its mouth dropping when u play through the FIRST mario looking so good then before. If they did this for mario then i cant wait for the legend of zelda 25th annivarsry.
I can remember when the first Mario came out, that game was awesome, now that they have all the games in one makes it even better. The graphics do not mean anything to me because this just shows how far Nintendo has come since the first one. I am glad they gave another opportunity to those that was not able to get the game the first time a second chance at getting it again. Nintendo has always been my favorite since Mario came out. Thanks again guys for your hard work towards keeping your fan base happy. :)
the greates mario tiles in one!
I really like how the old mario are brought back in one disk this is a great title and for all mario fans this is a must this game rocks if you don't have tihs get it today!
A Classic Gamers Choice
Like I said in the summary of this game, if you are a classic gamer like myself you will probably like this game . I have the SNES version, but it seems to be identical to the Wii version of the game. I think that if you play this game when you're having people over, for instance at a party, you'll have more fun playing the game. But if you play it alone, in my opinion it seems to lack something. But all around it's a good game to add to your videogame collection. (I wish they had bonus features and extra mini games on Super Mario All Stars.):8-bitnoid--> Check out my other Reviews !
Then to now
I must admit i own/still play the original for the SNES. As a matter of fact
I consider it to be my favorite game/council of all time period (don't hate NES fans I was just raised on the SNES), because 4 Mario games in one who could resist! I have been waiting for this game to be redone since the WII came out. My only complaint is that they didn't also add Super Mario World like in my SNES version that is my favorite game on that game, but i guess its ok i already bought it on the VC. In conclusion they are redoing this game I cant wait and it is completely worth the price and I can't wait until 12/12/10!
Doesn't seem too impressive since they had a game with all of thees and super Mario world for the snes that i got for 5 dollars a couple of years ago. Considering they don't sell them anymore Nintendo probably made this just to make extra money.
I had to post this comment
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. Like another commenter here said, this is just a ROM rip dumped on a DVD. I would not recommend this title and send the message to Nintendo that we expect more.
