Mario congratulates Julio Sarmiento at Nintendo World

Launched on Monday in the US and tomorrow in Europe, Super Mario Galaxy has earnt a average score of 98% on critic collection site, MetaCritic. The site has 28 recorded reviews from various big name sources, with the game's lowest rating of 9/10.

Galaxy proves that Mario matters just as much today as he did 25 years ago, and that makes him one of a kind in this medium. But don't play Galaxy simply because Mario is the timeless godfather of gaming. No, play Galaxy because it's fantastic.

One of the greatest platformers I have ever played, Wii's best game, and an absolute must-own experience. And to me, this odd trek through space really does feel like the true sequel to "Mario 64."

The stellar presentation and fantastic level designs combine to make Super Mario Galaxy the Wii's game to beat and one of Mario's greatest adventures yet.

If you thought you were unsure about this game, the above should be enough to convince anyone to buy the game, we can only echo the above comments, you really have to go and grab this game! Miyamoto can bask in glory once again, Mario is truly back and Sunshine is finally behind us.
