    Yeah, they didn't put that much effort into making a great Limited Edition Anniversary Collection that everyone, old and young, would want to buy.

    I mean if you look at this from the view of someone who doesn't pirate then it's not bad.

    My friend doesn't pirate or really use emulators but she really likes the Mario games. She got the collection for Christmas and loves it. She brings it to parties and it usually sees some popular rotation. Seeing as the collection is like $30 and buying all the games on the VC is $23 ($5 a piece for SMB, SMB2, and SMB3, $8 for SMB: TLL) and you get some extras in this (nothing significant but goodies are goodies) and the portability of just being able to bring it on a disc, I don't see it as being a rip off.

    Seeing as we're pretty much all pirates and use emulators and stuff then we won't see much use of it. But for someone whose not, it's probably a pretty nice game for your collection.

    There was kinda a similar reception by people here when the Sonic Classic Collection came out. You can go find my review if you really want and I basically went more in-depth on why the game was actually pretty good.

    I didn't pirate it either but they definitely could have put a lot more into it than they did.

    Yet those games are better than most crap that is out now.

    Most likely, they should've at least added Super Mario World or better goodies, but it's still not a bad package to get. It's still 3 great games (SMB2... Not so much) in a convenient package.

    I still have my original SNES cart of SMB Allstars (with no World, but I have that separate), along with my jimmy-rigged SNES with a small ball of foil in the power port with the power cable strapped onto it with tape to keep it system working.

    it would be nice if they would care and do something new, such as two players on one screen like sonic, and updated version of super mario land 2, and maybe full 3d graphics.

    NO BUY

    I consider this to be something of a rip-off. Like some people have said, the CD is sub par and the booklet has information you could find online easily. If they'd included anything substantial at all (People have mentioned Sega, the masters of compilations, check out any compilation they've done apart from the latest, they've all been pretty amazing). Interviews, old trailers for each game, I would've bought this. But I see zero incentive to buy this when all the games are on VC.

    I am not missing my chance this time! If I see someone holding the game well I am there and I didn't get it, I will kick them in the teeth!

    This game is piece of junk since they didnt upgrade any graphic or anything at all. No thanks! I will save my cash!

    I got a limited iso on my HDD.. (ofc I own the real one too)

    tbh. It's WAY too expensive if it included SM Sunshine it would've been worth it!

    I think it's funny how people are like "they didn't even update it!!!!" Seriously, you play a game for graphics? lol.

    It would be fine if they didn't update the graphics and add a level or two. Or if they included Super Mario World. Or put in any effort at all into the game, other than their marketing department.

    They just slapped Super Mario All-Stars (the version sans World) onto a disc and asked for money.

    my guess is they will re-release this with a new "bonus version" that just has the super mario allstars + world rom burnt on to it.

    Sounds like an electrical fire just waiting to happen.

    Anyway, on topic, if they sold just the book alone for a decent price, I'd probably get it, but I have no interest in a few roms on a disc with nothing else special going on.

    Nice for people who doesn't have had a Super Nintendo.

    Damn, that SNES looks fine, as do the carts. My kidhood SNES was the big and bulky one. I guess it's either a SNES 2, a european model or both, seeing the shape of those carts.

    I had SMAS too as a kid, in fact it was my first game (along with Yogi Bear)

    But ya, we're going to see an article like this pop up again a few more times until fans/collectors/suckers really start complaining.
