Famitsu Gives Super Mario Galaxy 38/40

Near perfect scores from the imfamous Japanese magazine, could this be a Mario 64 beater we're all hoping for?

Famitsu, the biggest video game magazine in Japan, are the first to review "the second coming", Super Mario Galaxy for the Nintendo Wii, and they have given it a score of 38/40. 2 reviewers gave it a 9, and the other 2 a perfect 10. For comparison, Famitsu gave Super Mario 64 a score of 39/40 and Super Mario Sunshine a score of 37/40. Of course they also gave Nintendogs a perfect score, so I don't blame you if you don't have complete faith in their scores.

Impressive news, Galaxy certainly looks special, but we're still alittle nervous as to how its going to play. Only a few more weeks to wait.
