Ocarina of Time still number one
It seems the plumber's latest adventure can do no wrong, scoring top marks at many well-respected publications around the world. In fact, it's got so many high scores that reviews aggregator Metacritic places it at second spot in the list of the highest-rated games of all time with a score if 98, level with Grand Theft Auto IV, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 and Soul Calibur II, which starred Link in its GameCube edition.
N64 masterpiece Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time still leads the table with a staggering Metascore of 99, but with more Super Mario Galaxy 2 reviews due in before the game's launch in Europe on June 11th there's a possibility it might sneak up to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Miyamoto's time-travelling epic.
