As a fan of the Super Mario series, I was exited to learn that the new Super Mario All-Stars game was going to be the next game arriving in the mail. That excitement quickly subsided once I loaded the game up.

Years ago, a game with the same title was released for the Super Nintendo platform. Both versions include the same set of four games (the original Super Mario, Super Mario Lost Levels, Super Mario 2, and Super Mario 3). The version for the Super Nintendo updated some of the graphics from the original (most notably in the original Super Mario game). It appears that nothing (and I mean nothing) was changed when the game was ported to the Wii platform. The opening sequence and the graphics appear to be the same. In fact, when starting a new game, the graphic showing the controls is that of a Super Nintendo controller. Needless to say, I was quite disappointed. I think Nintendo could have done a much better job.

I had considered purchasing this game as I no longer have all of the original games on any platform. I am glad that I decided not to (especially since this game is selling for about $75 on Amazon, although I think it is some sort of collector's edition). I probably would have given the game a lower rating had it not encompased a set of classic games.
