    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.

    Super Mario 3D All-Stars is an amazing retrospective that shows us the first few steps that the series took going into three-demensional space. Even in this original form the trilogy easily stands tall among most modern games with it's timeless game design. All we can do now is just appreciate this masterpieces and celebrate Mario's anniversary together.

    A collection of 3 marvelous, timeless titles, that could be improved upon a bit further, but still stand strong, defying the test of time. While the price should ironically be more like 35 instead of 60 and the availability should not suffer a six months long deadline, these are still one of the best Super Mario games of all time and nothing can change that. If you can get it - get it.

    It is undeniable that Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy are 3 titles that border on excellence. However, as a compilation, Super Mario 3D All-Stars is far from perfect.

    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.

    Super Mario 3D All-Stars is three masterpiece games in a lacklustre package thanks to poor upgrades, contrived control choices and barely any extra content. [Issue #2, p. 72]

    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.

    Compré este juego el dia de lanzamiento en formato físico y en cuestion de gráficos se ve hermoso tanto en handheld cómo en TV, pero a Mario64Compré este juego el dia de lanzamiento en formato físico y en cuestion de gráficos se ve hermoso tanto en handheld cómo en TV, pero a Mario64 le faltó un ajuste panorámico a la pantalla, fuera de ahí todo lo demás me gustó, en especial los controles que se sienten tan naturales como jugar con el control de la n64.
    Jugué muy poco sunshine pero me encantó que en esta colección adaptaran el stick derecho para girar la cámara y galaxy se ve increíble, no lo jugué en la wii asi que no oiedo hacer la comparacion. Faltó el galaxy 2 para considerar completa esta colección. Tanto el menú como la galería para la música/soundtrack de los 3 juegos es de facil acceso y visualmente es genial. Sobresaliente a mi parecer

    I made an account to give the score I think it deserves, and hopefully warn people before they buy it that I think its mostly half baked. IfI made an account to give the score I think it deserves, and hopefully warn people before they buy it that I think its mostly half baked. If it wasn't for mario 64 before competent with its texture upscale and being as fun as it was all those years ago it would be average. That doesn't excuse the low effort the put into this. These games don't feel like they are running natively because they use so much power for their age. Why does my switch get hot when I play sunshine...? 64 I wish at least fixed the camera and some controls, it should have higher resolution and run at 60 fps, and why the heck are the additions from 64 DS not here? Are we supposed to forget about that, I know nintendo doesn't expect us to forget about galaxy 2. It needed that game to make it feel worth the asking price. Temporary digital window is seriously scummy, but I can understand the value of the physical copy might not exist if they didn't but these games exist as ports on other systems anyway so it doesn't make sense.
    Sunshine is frustrating as hell, even though its good and I was able to see it through, making a lot of sprites mandatory made it way less appealing though. Sunshine even has a bug that existed in 64 where mario gets stuck on an edge. Galaxy also has a bug where he runs in a circle until you stop moving. Its not about preserving them how they are, these are flaws that should be fixed. Make them run natively and 60fps full screen pls Nintendo and include galaxy 2 as a free download, I won't pay extra for it. I also refunded 1 game from you and the customer service is atrocious to me so that's why in light of this release Nintendo really need to pull their heads in and make it up to consumers.
