Super Mario Galaxy was released a few days ago in the US, and it's really been setting the critics on fire (not literally). So far it's the most acclaimed game of the year, according to Metacritics.
Metacritics is a site that aggregates review scores from well known sources online as well as print magazines. Galaxy currently has a whopping Metascore of 98, beating down the likes of The Orange Box (96), Bioshock (96) and Halo 3 (94). This definitely puts it in contention for "Game of the Year", possibly even "Best game Ev4r".
