Review - Super Mario 3D All-Stars (Switch) | WayTooManyGames

WTMG's Leo Faria: "Don’t get me wrong, I love the fact this collection exists. I love that I can play these classic Mario games on-the-go. They are still ridiculously fun. But I can’t help but feel annoyed with the lack of effort put into this collection. It just feels lazy. We are paying sixty dollars for emulated ROMs, available for a limited time only, with little to no quality of life improvements. This sets a very bad precedent for the future. If this was being sold for maybe thirty or forty bucks, without the stupid limited availability, this would have been a complete must-have, a stroke of genius. As it stands, however, Super Mario 3D All-Stars just feels like an act of greed and hubris from a company that once knew better."

I get it but at the end of the day Nintendo put years of effort into these games first time round sure they could get a bluepoint style team to do all the remasters or do it themselves but then they not spending all or most of their time and effort pushing things forward. I’ll take it not played mario 64 in years and really enjoying it. Looking forward to galaxy most but will smash through sunshine again first as well these are great games and to get all 3 for one even at full price for a current game is brilliant value it’s no rare replay but 3 of the best mario games ever made for less than £15 each. I got my physical copy for £43 ( and a digital copy for less than £40 (2 Game vouchers for £84 paid £79 for the eshop credit so kerching) it’s a bargain even at full price. They could have not bothered at all or they could have split them all up. Galaxy 1/2 for £50 mario 64 remake £50 sunshine port £50 someone would have had a field day either way it’s the cool thing to do. Edgy 😑🥴😂

We can all agree that the games themselves are classics but nintendo completely messed up with this collection. They should have upped the graphics alot more than what they did and while they are all still fun fun to play, i cant help but want more. Everything about this collection is bare bones even the menu and music player. Nintendo always gets a pass and as long as we the fans give them passes they will keep milking us in the worst way.
