Super Mario Galaxy
this is one of the best wii games ever made.
this is truly one of mario's best adventures, even when you start the first level there is an amazing opening cutscene. but when you actually get into the galaxies, that's when the game realy starts to shine. there are over 40 galaxies, and there are 3 levels in each galaxy, and there are about 5 galaxies in each chapter of the game. and the levels are like super mario sunshine. it feels like a sequel to super mario 64 and super mario sunshine. each galaxy is very differant in it's own way. when I first got the game I thought that every level of the game is just runing around planets, but I was wrong, the game is mostly 3D but sometimes the camera will shift to a 2D angle, one that makes you remember the classic mario games. and you use the wii remote to point at the screen and collect these small colorful stars to fill up the star count. if you have enough small stars you can use them to feed the living stars and they will "transform with snacky happieness" and make a route to a new galaxy. but that's not all you use the wii remote for. you use it to spin enemies defeat them. Also in some galaxies you use the wii remote to play the level for example, in one level you turn the wii remote like a key to controll a fish, and in another level you ride on top of a glass ball and you tilt the wii remote to control it, and in another level you use the wii remote to blow air into a bubble and try to keep it steady by turning the wii remote to the other sides of the bubble if you blow it too far, you could run into a spiked ball and pop the bubble. this game is amazing because like I said before, each galaxy is very diffrent, for example, there is a galaxy called "honeyhive galaxy", in this galaxy all bees are rulled by a queen and there enamies are the "mantibugs". and in another galaxy called "ghostly galaxy, everything is almost exactly like lugi's mansion, exept this time it's the other way around, you play as mario and have to find luigi in a haunted mansion in space. the boss fights are also very amazing and challanging. espesily the ones where you fight bowser. and the point is this wii game is so amazing you won't beleive your eyes. probably the best wii game ever. I highly recomend it.
Good for any mario player.
First of this is not a game i would play all the time. This is a game that you want to pick up and play for an hour a time. Playing through this ganme is fun and challenging and can be a great time. But like any game, there are pros and cons.
Great and challenging gameplay.
Lots of secrets to find.
Unique and colorful graphics
Gets old and repetetive after a couple weeks
Not many new things to ofter.
If you are a mario player, pick up this game. But if you have never played any of the mario games, this isn't a good a game for you.
One of the Best Wii Games
Super Mario Galaxy is a mind blowingly awesome game. If you have a Wii and don't have this game, shame on you. This game goes right up there with the best Mario games ever. It is a completely new take on a Mario game and is a reason to buy a Wii.
this is an alright game. the problem is that player 2 is a star, and the star can't do anything. yup!
This is a great Mario game there are tons of very cool levels and lots of different Galaxy's I think there is at least seven. Some new suits for Mario that come in the form of mushrooms and flowers like all other Mario games. The Mushrooms are the Spring mushroom where Mario has a spring around him allowing him to bounce around and jump very high. Another is the Bumblebee mushroom which gives Mario a Bumblebee suit and allows him to fly for a limited time but if you go into water with this suit you will lose the suit. Next is the Rainbow Mushroom that works like a star in other Mario games and makes him invincible for a short time. There is also the Fire Flower which lets him shoot fireballs. The Ice Flower lets Mario create hexagonal tiles of ice to cover any liquid surface he walks on and allows him to skate across water and lava. The Boo Suit allows him to float through the air, as well as become transparent and move through certain obstacles. The Red Star, which is an optional power-up only accessible after completing a certain mission, allows him to fly for 1 minute. Mario's health consists of a three-piece power meter, which is depleted by contact with enemies and hazards. When swimming underwater, Mario has an air supply meter, which quickly depletes his main power meter if it runs out. Mario's health can be restored by collecting coins and his air supply by touching bubbles or coins. When the power meter becomes empty, the player loses a life and must go back to a predetermined checkpoint. The power meter can be temporarily expanded to six units through the use of a Life Mushroom, with the maximum health returning to three units if the overall health falls to three units from enemy or hazard contact or if Mario suffers instant death
Fresh and EPIC!
This game gives the Mario franchise a new feeling to it. Space, gravity, galaxies!. The game is really good, the only bad thing is you go from planet to planet, you don't have a big planet where you can run or go back like in Super Mario 64 or Sunshine where the levels were big and fun... it's still an EPIC game, tho...
Worst Game EVER
I bought this for my little brother for his birthday. Me and him were playing it yesterday, and it was SO boring!! Even HE said it sucked, and he's a hardcore gamer. I would NOT recommend this game!
A Mario experience that has yet to be beaten!
This is an interesting take on the Mario universe, since, as the title showcases, it mainly takes place in space. I haven't played this fun of a Nintendo game since Super Mario Sunshine, and it has a very high replay value. The greatest part is that there are so many galaxys it puts Super Mario 64 to shame. Though some powerups are a little annoying to control (mainly the Spring Shroom) but some are really creative and fun (the Bee Suit and the Boo Suit). It also has a lot of creative bosses, like a Petey Pirahna/Dinosaur mix. Well, my ending score is a 9 because of some control problems I had. High Replay Ability.
When I first picked up the copy, I thought this was gonna be a normal Mario game ( Great, Good, Awesome ect...). I've played many Mario games. And this one was simply.... AMAZING. The graphics, the story line and everything was perfect. This has been one of the best Mario games I've ever played. If you see it, I suggest you get it :)
Perfectly Developed Finished Game I LOVE IT
This game, it's a very nice game i loved the fact that you can use the special 'Galaxy powers" my favorite is the ice and the bee powers. this game is very good but lacks some replay value. although i am aware you can play as luigi. and u can roam around the Galaxies freely i feel they could have added some online play to it maybe. but then again unexpected by nintendo. The graphics are very Colorful and magnifacant and i just love looking at them. the music is amazing that i loved about it. very good. the physics well. THEY ARE AMAZING the Gravity mechanics are very very very well detailed and finished by nintendo although the gravity physics brought back some memories from a game that was amazing with one tediouse level... COUGH COUGH SONIC ADVENTURE 2 "MAD SPACE". And this game gave me that feeling of hard work and fully developed game and every standard is great much like the feeling of a long packed adventure like the sub space "emmisarry" in super smash brothers brawl by nintendo. no glitches like in Super mario sunshine and it was just a great game this is a very very nice game. I loved it. maybe if i could i wuld rate it a 100 but, lets be logical so lets say maybe... a 12 Out of 12. Go buy it its worth the money to buy it new because you always want a new game its worth to spend your money on the fully new no scratched game on such a fun feeling. also if you liked this game go buy a sonic game SONIC COUOURS or COLORS... i'm a hard core sonic fan not mario but this was great. sonic coloros has the same color power up idea but not stolen because its also for wii although sonic colors does not provide zero gravity. lets just say its a fixed unleashed. OVER ALL THIS GAME IS AMAZING AND SONIC COLORS IS A 9 FOR ITS LACK OF REPLAY VALUE AND UNORIGINALTY AND LACK OF HUB WORLDS WHICH I LOVE :) BUT BOTH ARE AMAZING GO BUY BOTH NEW VERSIONS FOR A GREAT PRICE OF 2 AMAZING GAMES AT GAMESTOP FOR UP TO JUST AROUND 65 DOLLARS BUT STILL BUY IT. BECAUSE COLORS IS A FINISHED IMPROVED UNLEASHED AND GALAXY IS AN IMPROVED FINISHED SUNSHINE. HOP ON TO THE SONIC COLORS PAGE FOR MY FULL REVIEW of the game and make sure to thumbs up my review if you liked it. Thank you and remember to treat yourself and ask your parents to buy it or just buy it.
