Super Mario 3D All-Stars represents the pinnacle of platforming goodness and with perfect ports, as well as top notch optimisation for the console, it's a must-buy. For newcomers, they are getting the chance to experience the timeline of how Nintendo first experimented and mastered the 3D platformer, all the way up to it improving on the formula with each iteration. For stalwarts, it's a great excuse to dive back in and revisit a childhood hero in all his hat-wearing, moustache-twirling glory. Each inclusion has perfect character and level designs, as well as an ever-increasing level of innovation that simply cannot be matched by any other gaming company in the platforming genre. To sum up Super Mario 3D All-Stars in one word? Unmissable.
It goes without saying that these classic Mario titles hold up extremely well. Each one is still fantastic and even Mario 64 manages to remain fun without feeling outdated aside from its slightly wonky camera. Neither Sunshine or Galaxy have seen official re-releases since their debut in most countries and Super Mario 64 only had a mediocre virtual console port that was generally hated due to severe input lag. It’s fantastic to have all three of these now available on Switch and they absolutely hold up. It’s a huge disappointment that at the time of this review Nintendo has said that this collection will only be available until the end of March 2021 but hopefully they see some other form of release so it can be enjoyed for the entirety of the Switch’s lifetime. Anyone looking to play through the games again or try them out for the first time shouldn’t miss out on Super Mario 3D All-Stars.
It's a collection of the first three 3-D Super Mario's all in one. It's useful to access all three of the games on the go or at home. There's not much to say except the lack of button mapping and the fact that the Shindou Version was included which has the BLJ patched out and there were only text changes re-mapped buttons to fit the console it released on. The biggest thing is people are upset about this as it's not a remaster and while they could have done WAY more than they did, they didn't promise they were going to remaster it. It is sad that there are no remasters but it's a great collection for people who don't have easy access to these amazing games. It even includes the soundtracks to the games on the title menu! All this said, it's really for people who lost their old stuff or never had the stuff to begin with or maybe who're just too lazy to switch between consoles. It is disappointing that there are no significant changes though but as a collection, it's great! ....Just remember you can't Backwards Long Jump
The three games it encompasses are fantastic, so Mario 3D All Stars is still worth buying. However, Nintendo is, ultimately, coasting off of the back of some amazing work it did more than a decade ago to sell what is ultimately a disappointingly barebones, facile celebration of gaming’s most important icon who truly deserves better.
The Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection could stand a few more extras. Customizable controls would be great, as would sound options, design documents, or artwork. When you think about everything the original All-Stars offered—three graphically upgraded Mario games, plus a "lost" game—3D All-Stars is a bit lacking. That said, the games in Super Mario 3D All-Stars still hold up today. I'm surprised how fun Super Mario 64 still is, and Super Mario Galaxy remains one of the heroic plumber's best outings. As for Super Mario Sunshine, well, that's still up to personal taste.
A collection that includes three all-time classics, but not in the way we would have loved to see and play. For their suggested retail price and their limited availability, we would have loved to see a project equal to Super Mario All-Stars on the SNES, rather than a mostly upscaled increase in resolution and all the necessary conversion edits. Being a limited release, it should address only those who haven’t had the chance to play the games in their original release time. The rest could just unearth their old consoles and give these games a go as intended.
The standalone games themselves of course deserve higher scores, but the way this bundle is published seems very frugal, especially considering the 60 euro price tag that comes with it. In that manner, Nintendo could learn from the honorable and generous ways in which companies like Activision re-release their classics.
I played super Mario 64 I'll beat super Mario 64 on the Nintendo 64 and I have super Mario 64 on the DS when I was little and super Mario sunshine which I didn't beat on gamecube super Mario galaxy I didn't beat that one on the wii I just been super Mario sunshine on the NiIntendo switch and I just beat super Mario galaxy on the NiIntendo switch and now I need to beat super Mario 64 on the NiIntendo switch
This combo is amazing, some of my favorite Mario games ever, but the lack of creativity is terrible. Nintendo basically did nothing new. Cameras are the same, no new hidden stuff, they even removed some of the awesome glitches in Mario 64 that Nintendo knew we all liked. Also, why is this game limited edition? There was no reason to do this. They just want people to rampage over on EBay. I just don’t get it.
Super Mario 3D All-Star reune tres clásicos de Mario en tres dimensiones. Yo que no había podido jugar al 64 ni al Sunshine, he disfrutado mucho de estos juegos, aunque la remasterización podría ser bastante mejor. Algunos angulos y la cámara en según que situaciones no ayuda, por lo que en algunos momentos se le ven las costuras. A nivel personal, me parece que ha sido una oportunidad perdida el no incluir el Galaxy 2. En general, si no has podido jugar a las versiones originales, merece la pena.
I have to say, I was quite disappointed with Super Mario 3D All-Stars. While it was great to have three classic Mario games in one package, the overall experience just didn't live up to my expectations. The graphics were improved, but not by much, and the controls felt clunky and unresponsive at times. It also felt like there wasn't enough new content to justify the price. Overall, I would give this game a 4 out of 10. If you're a die-hard Mario fan, you might still enjoy it, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.
Ok, this is NOT based on the games in the collection, this is based on how the main game does when it comes to making these 3 amazing titles **** holy **** they didn't do any of that. Now before I want to say the bad, I wanted to say the good. The $60 price tag isn't all that bad, mainly because these games go for high prices on sites like eBay. So the pricing is sort of forgiving, everything else isn't. You get 3 games and some music. All of these can be done by using an emulator or going on Youtube for the music. If you take something like Crash, he had 3 of his games, but they were remastered. Now I understand that Nintendo can't remaster the games, and that's ok, but Crash was only $40, but $60. I will say the smaller updates to the games are so dumb, Mario 64 got sightly better graphics, Sunshine got a wider screen, which makes no sense, and can't the others do the same, and I forgot about Galaxy. Overall this game isn't garbage, but other games truly do the classic games they were trying to be back justice, like Crash.
