What a waste of an opportunity...and show of greed

If Nintendo wanted to squeeze more money from the turnip that is old-school Mario, then they should at least give gamers something to look forward to! Why oh why would I waste my money on this waste of time when I can just plug in the old SNES and get all these great games PLUS SUPER MARIO WORLD?!?!?!
"Limited Edition" bonuses should be included in every single copy, if only to make up for the glaring omission of Super Mario World. No new music, no new graphics....um, why pay all that money to go back to the nineties? Nothing new added to this package makes it a complete waste of time.
If you own the classics, plus the remakes on gameboy, plus the snes all-stars, then this is a drink coaster. If not, then just grab the one with Super Mario World and let this title die a well-deserved death. Shame on you Nintendo. This should be a fifteen dollar download on the Wii Shop Channel. Shame on you...
Perhaps it's just me, but I expect more from a game on disc, particularly one that is for the Wii. If it's on the Wii, it should use the functionality it was designed to handle, be more social and add new fun twists to an old favorite. This should be just a download because it's exactly the same as it was before. Nintendo... seriously, if you want more market share, quit riding Mario into the ground.
