Review Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
Simply out of this galaxy
Ah, Mario. It's been a while... believe it or not it's been five years since Mario's last personal outing; Super Mario Sunshine on the Gamecube. Our hero has returned for his first Wii outing, in the form of Super Mario Galaxy. Let's get something clear from the start: Galaxy is definitely not a straight forward successor...

Wahoo, it's Mario Day! Sorry, MAR10 Day! Or, if you're in Europe, 10MAR Day!... Hmm, 'Iomar' doesn't work at all. Look, it's March 10th and Nintendo is celebrating all things Mario. There are movie trailers, Switch game sales,
Guide Every 3D Super Mario Game Ranked
As rated by you
The release of Super Mario 3D All-Stars had us debating at Nintendo Life Towers which of the Mario adventures in the third dimension is the absolute best. Team Nintendo Life has its own ideas about the best Super Mario games (including the 2D entries), but we recently asked for your opinions regarding the 3D entries specifically...
About The Game
The ultimate Nintendo hero is taking the ultimate step … out into space. Join Mario as he ushers in a new era of video games, defying gravity across all the planets in the galaxy.
- Shake, tilt and point! Mario takes advantage of all the unique aspects of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controller, unleashing new moves as players shake the controller and even point at and drag items with the pointer.
- Mario essentially defined the 3-D platforming genre with Super Mario® 64, and this game proves once again that he is king. Players perform mind-bending, low-gravity jumps across wild alien terrain as they experience platforming for a new generation.
Game Storyline - When some creature escapes into space with Princess Peach, Mario gives chase, exploring bizarre planets all across the galaxy.
Characters - Mario, Peach and enemies new and old.
How to Progress Through the Game - Players run, jump and battle enemies as they explore all the planets in the galaxy. Since this game makes full use of all the features of the Wii Remote, players have to do all kinds of things to succeed: pressing buttons, swinging the Wii Remote and the Nunchuk, and even pointing at and dragging things with the pointer.
Special Powers/Weapons/Moves/Features - Since he's in space, Mario can perform mind-bending jumps unlike anything he's done before. He'll also have a wealth of new moves that are all based around tilting, pointing and shaking the Wii Remote.
This game is an absolute MUST have for those that enjoyed Super Mario 64 and Sunshine!
The Best Game for a Game
i think it wasent that good
Super Mario Galexy has to be one of my favorite Wii games. I feel sorry for you Goldmidget.
Super Mario Galaxy WAS the best Wii game.
You meant Galaxy?
Liked this game but I found it too linear and too short compared to the other games. But still a good buy for your Wii
This game definitely gets a gold medal, in my book.
Cannot wait for Super Mario Galaxy 2!
OK, so this game has co-op, where only one person (P1) can control Mario/Luigi, and the other which only uses a Wii Remote (P2). And now in Galaxy 2, where the second player can not only use the star pointer (if I am right), but can also control a red Luma. So I guess maybe Galaxy 2 can use up to 4 players, maybe?
But still the best Wii game. I just hope this will be replaced as first for Galaxy 2 on the ONM.
7:10 i cant be boverd to complete it by the way my opinion number 2 is way better
Galaxy is OVERATED it isn't half as good as Super Mario 64.
The queen bee mission is a bit disturbing. But otherwise this is a great game. 8/10
The best super mario EVER!!! ... but why can't mario punch anymore... did parents file a complaint???
One of the best games out there.
@ChaosTheChao I totally agree.
Why are people complaining??? 7/10, 8/10, overated?!? Are you kidding me?!? Out of all the reviews on Metacritic, no score was below 90 (9 if you will)! It was better than what nintendonerd147, MarioFoy, and what ChaosTheChao said. It is certainly a 10 and I regret ever selling it. It is one of the best Wii games ever!
@MarioFoy IMO Super Mario 64 is WAAAAAAY overrated. As someone who didn't play it 'till it hit the VC, I think it's not half as good as people say it is.
@SuperMarioFan1995 isn't it an orange Luma?
This is seriously the best game ever made, hands down. Nothing tops this.
I like Sunshine better
this has a higher rating than Smash Bros 4 People try it out!
COUGH COUGH SUPER SAMSH COUGH COUGH
he Spins to destroy/dizzy his opponents than if they are dizzied he can KICK them
If Super Mario Galaxy 3 ever get released i would cry really much
Fun fact: Due to a mixup with GameStop, the automated message from that store falsely-claimed that Mario Galaxy was rated M but in reality, it was rated E, it seems like the rating was taken from Call of Duty 4 (which came out around the same time as Mario Galaxy.
@Goldmidget How dare you say that.
one of the best wii games if not the best.
I know this game is like, an S Tier Mario game, but, I'm not a big fan of 3D Mario games. Because of the difficulty and such. The perspective on every 3D Mario or Sonic game or whatever gets hard to judge at times. And there's a lot more inevitability to rage-quit. And that's caused by a lot of trial-and-error gameplay with these games. I played this when I was little. Got a good way through it. I think to when I got the Flying Mario ability. I don't know why I played this even though I didn't like it. Maybe it was because I was a big Mario fan when I was little. And since it was Mario, by god, I was gonna play it. Or maybe because of the challenge, or just coming back to kick another boss' butt after trying a lot of times. And the water levels. Oh, the water levels. I think that the water levels in 3D Mario games are toe-to-toe in the worst type of level with early 90s Sonic The Hedgehog titles. The controls for water levels are quite hard for me to figure out/get used to. And, 3D Mario Vs. 2D Early 90s Sonic = THEY ARE BOTH SO SLOW. They take a tremendous amount of spamming a button to go the same speed you would go on land.
A Good Game but difficult and rage-inducing at times.
