Mario Galaxy...

Recommended Posts

How is there no thread yet for Mario Galaxy? The game is brilliant in every way. So far I've gotten 20 stars, and the game is not only staying fresh, but using they seem to be outdoing themselves with every new world. In a world of desaturated brown and gray shooters, this game stands alone on it's own pedestal, with beautiful colors and clean visuals, blending old school looks with next generation techniques. The game does such a good job at teaching the player how to use new mechanics, and then putting them to use, and often time expanding on a certain technique. All of the uses of the Wiimote seem very natural and within the realms of what can be asked from any given player. What a random jumble of praise, but what can I say, the game is great. More feedback as I continue to play...

Out of 32 reviews, Mario Galaxy still owning it with a 98%

The most impressive thing is its simplicity, I think. They've managed to pull back from some of the complexities of of Mario Sunshine and still make the game feel like something more.

46/120 Stars and counting :-D

Very busy playing this and Assassins Creed :)

I actually bought a component cable just to play Mario, and it really does look beautiful. And yeah, all the Wii functionality is really well used, and theres so much variation in it. Got about 25 stars so far, loving it so far~

I finished it and I have 81 stars...

Did that in three sittings, but they were LONG sittings.

It's the best game I've played in probably a decade. ONWARD to 120!

Yes, this game is amazing. It is basically just owning me with awesomeness time after time, and has really recaptured the childhood magic that I remember Mario 64 delivering. :-D

My favourite part is how deeply embedded into past Mario memories it is. Everywhere you turn there's classic music, classic characters (Magikoopas!), and classic gameplay. Yet this is all alongside the most innovative platforming action since Mario 64.

I wrote more on my superb blog, of course.

I've played it a year ago in a trade show in Paris, and even then it just felt astonishingly good. As in, this really is the game the Wii was made for, not the other way around.

I can only imagine how even more polished it can be....

I'm kinda putting this off until I've got more time on my hands - Assassin's Creed, K&L and Mass Effect are first up. I'm far from being a big Mario/Nintendo fan, but I did enjoy Mario 64 back in the day, so here's hoping I'm not gonna be disappointed.
