Beim ersten Begutachten von „Super Mario All-Stars“, dem „Nintendo“-Modul, das im Grund genommen nur als 'alten' Spielen besteht, hängt den schon leicht ergrauten Herren der Videospielergarde meist der Unterkiefer vor nicht endend wollender Verzückung knapp über dem Bauchnabel. Schließlich befinden sich auf dieser Cartridge ein paar der weithin anerkannt besten Jump&Runs, die jemals programmiert wurden. Erster Eindruck: Ein Traum ist in Erfüllung gegangen! Wer dieses Modul besitzt, braucht seinen Lebtag kein anderes mehr zu kaufen!
Overall, Super Mario All-Stars is an excellent update to the classic games. While Nintendo updated the graphics and sound, they left the controls and level layouts alone. It was absolute blast playing through the games that got me into this hobby in the first place. The graphics are excellent, the sound is superb, and the game play is as fresh today as it was in the 80’s. The fact that you get 4 games on one cartridge, complete with saving feature, makes this a no brainer. Easily the greatest compilation ever made. A must own.
The Video Game Critic
The graphics and sounds in all these games have been enhanced slightly, and four save slots are available for each game! This package is first-class all the way.

Who could ask for more? This is the ultimate collector's cart - hundreds of hours of plumbing game play! It's a Mario lover's dream come true!

Der kan næsten ikke siges noget dårligt om Super Mario All Stars.
Player One
Nous ne pouvons être que comblés de cette compilation, célébrant, je vous le signale, la 100 millionième cartouche de Mario vendue dans la monde (record toutes catégories, et loin devant, pour un jeu video!). Nous retrouvons intacts (les bonus et astuces sont exactement au même endroit) ces jeux mythiques qui avaient fait notre bonheur sur NES. Les 256 couleurs affichables de la Super Nintendo en plus!

Fling all of your platform game prejudices from a large block of flats. Set fire to the legs of all those cutesy game apprehensions. Violently thrust needles into the shoulders of all those "Mario's a bit old hat, really" feelings. This is completely essential and, with this, Streetfighter 2 - Turbo and Starwing, the SNES has never been more rosy-cheeked or more desirable.
Nintendo Magazine System UK
Combining and updating all the Mario games for the super NES is an excellent idea, and the revamped versions feature all aspects of the NES originals which earned them their classic status. Graphically and sonically, Mario All-Stars is excellent, with loads of detail added to the backdrops and equal care given to the updating of the music. Having said that, though, there is such a thing as overkill. Even so, I wholeheartedly recommend this Mario family album as there's still no character who can touch him.
Nintendo Land
This is truly one heck of a great package and one of the best SNES games ever! If you haven't tried any of these games before then this is a must buy. Even if you have played or own some of these titles it is still worth buying at least for the Lost Levels.
Power Play
Ihr bekommt einiges geboten: Zwei der wirklich besten Spiele aller Zeiten (Super Mario Bros. 1 und 3, ein gutes Geschicklichkeitsspiel (Teil 2 US/Europa) und der verschollene Perle für alle Mario-Maniacs: Super Mario Bros. 2 Japan. Wer ansonsten alle NES-Ausflüge von Super Mario besitzt, für den sollte dieser schwer verdauliche Delikatesse allein den Kauf rechtfertigen. Ansonsten gilt nach wie vor: Mario 3 ist der beste Mario aller Zeiten (Zeitlos genial: die vierte, vergrößerte Welt) – Dank Batteriespeicher wurde den Kritikern auch das letzte Haar aus der Pilzsuppe genommen.

Om du tycker om den här typen av spel och dessutom är en riktig snålvarg så är det här naturligtvis ett givet köp.
In all, though, a great cartridge, worth buying just for the two classic Mario games. There is one bad thing about it: if the best cart around is a compilation of old eight-bit games, it does not say much for the standard of new games, does it?
