Absolutely spectacular!

Where do you begin when talking about the Super Mario franchise and what it's brought to video gaming over the years? The series has single-handedly defined Nintendo and its consoles over the past 25 years and is showing no signs of slowing down at this...

Nintendo totally P'wn3D @ E3 - Pure Awesomeness - BTW, I absolutely loved playing as yoshi in Super Mario Sunshine - Yoshi was the one thing I missed in Galaxy ;)



PiribroH said:

I can't wait for this game to be released in Europe. It looks so damn beautiful and colorful. And, the most important, it has Yoshi.



Yellowkoopa said:

Wow I'm getting this game with new super mario bros wii and wii sports resort and mario and luigi bowsers inside story.



Pastry said:

I bet Nintendo will release Yoshi's Island on the VC as a promotion for this.

horray another mario galaxy! next to 64, this was the best 3D mario. I WANT!!!!!!




kay well its a must buy im just hoping its not all revolved around yoshi like in every level but anyway must buy still



kirgy said:

pretty awesome:D ,and with new power ups and yoshi, new bosses and yoshi, and new stages and yoshi this must be the best games of 2010:D (hence that i said AND YOSHI three times :D)



Masticore said:

It's probably gonna be a good game, but I wont waste my money for another Galaxy game when I already got the first one. Why not just play through the 1st Galaxy one more time in a couple of years when u cant remember anything? And instead spending the money for a new nice title. It's a cheap way from nintendo to try to earn more money on an already developed gaming idea, they could have instead developed something totally new in the mario series instead of just making a sequel with pretty much just new stages to go through.



she_gamer said:

I think there's going to be more to it than just new stages... at least that's what I'm hoping



SuperMarioFan1995 said:

Can't wait for 2010! Going to be really good! Same with the first Galaxy game! :)

I'm also hoping there will be more features as well.



TKOWL said:

What issues they should address:
Make the game Longer and Harder
Less Linear
Even if they don't fix these troubles it is still a must buy :)



SuperMarioFan1995 said:

Still no cover and new trailer yet. But hopefully it will be out in Spring.

I don't want to listen to those stupid people on YouTube who dislikes this game. This game will be as good as the first. Yoshi will be helpful. Replay value must be highest. Make the game longer and harder. Features as well.

And also make the gameplay much better.



SuperMarioFan1995 said:

I'm a really big Super Mario Galaxy fan. The first game was just pure fun. Collecting the Star Bits and the yellow Coins never felt so bad. I was going through the first and ALL of the 121 Power Stars collected for both Mario and Luigi.



SuperMarioFan1995 said:

Mario never gets boring. I still play his games. I do like Sonic, but his games are not as good as Mario's games in my opinion. Personally, the Sonic games in 3D always gets very glitchy and camera gets in the way. Well, the only good 3D Sonic games were Sonic Adventure 1 and 2. And Unleashed, that's not a bad game.

The Dreamcast versions of Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 are superior in every single way. The GameCube ports were kinda good, but not as good as the Dreamcast ones, in my opinion. I have both Dreamcast and GameCube versions of Sonic Adventure 1 and 2. :)



SuperMarioFan1995 said:

Super Mario Galaxy is definitely the number 1 Wii game. So hopefully this one will be as good as the original. Yoshi will be no exception.

at the one of screenshots Mario seems to be very tired... maybe he is done with all that running and jumping for 19 years already. Such thoughts come to my mind while looking at this game where Mario actually looks like he is a living person.
From the other side 19 is just fine for such activities. Viva il Mario!



StarDust4Ever said:

March 23rd, yay! ;) I love you, Nintendo! :*
Super Mario Galaxy 2, Hoo-Ray! :D
Geeze, I'm giddier than a school-girl right now :P

I wonder what kind of epic climatic finish they'll give this one, or whats the Bowser Battles will look like...



videoqueen1000 said:

you know what would be cool? if they could give Mario more of those awesome upgrades like in #1. that would be SWEEEEEEEEEEEEET!



SuperMarioFan1995 said:

I still prefer Mario games over Sonic games most of the time. Mario games are perfect all the way, while Sonic games aren't that perfect. Mario games are by far the best in the series, with no flaws and perfect 2D platformers.

That is why Nintendo OWNS!!!



TKOWL said:

No matter what any person or any reviewer says about this game, I will buy it and I will LOVE IT.



lex0plex said:

SMSunshine or SMGalaxy? I had more fun with sunshine. maybe cause it was one of the first games i played through til i got EVERYTHING

edit: also like the openness of the game play



Marvelousmoo said:

Oh. I notice how it says one player instead of two. I kind of liked the assistant player thing.



SuperMarioFan1995 said:

Nintendo should really add a level editor and/or online play. That would give us alot of replayability. Come on Miyamoto, add those two to this game! :)



Marvelousmoo said:

Hooray! Playing with somebody is way more fun than playing alone, even if it is as simple as picking up stars with the wiimote. It sounds as though their will be even more 2-player involvement though. Yay!



lex0plex said:


OMG Yesss!

So wait, is there absolutely no main world? It's just a menu like NSMB to choose the level... that sucks!



talkingmr_muffin said:

On the sunshine or galaxy thing, all I know is that I love both games. Sunshine was one of the first games I played, so I didn't know what had come out besides that. Galaxy, however, was amazing and brought nintendo even more alive with me because of the other things that had been coming out lately. So that's why galaxy rocked my world.

RallyFTW said:

My friend pre-ordered this game and he said I come over and play it with him, saying that I'm better at those types of games than him.

Lol, tomorrow.



SuperMarioFan1995 said:

Must...get this game...NOW!!!!!

Do want! I am a big fan of the awesome Mario games, and this one is an absolute must have for me. I really must get it!!!



Nintonic said:

When I got this game for some reason i think it has less effort than smg 1.
The story is terrible bowser gets huge. Mario saves the day. No Rosalina at all. Final Boss was too easy.



sohail said:

When you past a level out of bowlder bowl galaxy or hightall falls galaxy you can feed a hungry luma with 300 star bits if you did he TRANSFORMS into honeybloom galaxy which has BEE MARIO!!!

I play this game every now and again, and it reminds me I am not very good at video games.
