To be perfectly honest, Nintendo completely botched Mario's 25th Anniversary... Super Mario Bros. deserved better. Arguably the most influential game of all time, it deserved to have the vaults opened wide for fans to have access to every bit of content related to the original title. After consuming the disc, we should've been left utterly full, yet definitively satiated. But that's not the route Nintendo decided to take -- instead, we got a disc with a rom of Super Mario All-Stars for the SNES, a flimsy book sprinkled with pull quotes, and a CD containing a shamefully bare selection of tracks. In essence, Nintendo celebrated the 25th anniversary of their iconic mascot by making a quick buck. And while this left us undeniably disappointed, hope remains.
