Super Mario is back and out of this WORLD!
Review written by
Super Mario is back and better than ever in the Nintendo Wii exclusive Super Mario Galaxy. Super Mario Galaxy with its b-e-a-youtiful graphics and wonderful sound has been claimed as a system seller.
The Wii remote isn't really used too much in the game besides getting star bits and doing your spinning attack. The controls could not have been any better than what they are now. The sound and music is the best you have ever heard in a Mario game...period! The music is all orchestrated and sounds very Zelda-esque. My favorite song has got to be the Good Egg Galaxy, the theme should be in SSBB, it fits its personality. Classic tunes and sounds are also back like the underground music and the Mushroom Kingdom theme, if you are a Mario fan you should know the themes I am talking about.
Classic enemies have made a return too, like goombas and koopas and Bowser Junior, you haven't seen him since the lowly acclaimed Super Mario Sunshine. Speaking of Sunshine, surfing on rays have also returned, it is a racing stage which is a little hard to control. I am warning people you might die five to ten times because I know I did. Another stage is the Haunted Mansion stage, this is the stage you have to get the BOO Mushroom to turn into the Boo ghost. I found the whole Haunted Mansion stage and the Boo Mushroom to be the most annoying thing in the game so far.
I bought this game on Wednesday November 14 and have played for about 20+ hours so far and I am only still in the beginning of the game and unlocked two other galaxies. This game is pretty darn long. The boss battles make this game even longer, you will die a few times on a few bosses, not to mention names but the Bowser boss battle which is in the beginning is the hardest battle I have done by far in Galaxy. That stage's gravity is all messed up. So be careful where you step.
The graphics with the water effects and shiny igneous rocks are spectacular. The Wii really shows off its power and graphics for this game. Speaking of water, the swimming stage is cool but gets annoying with the controls but still is fun. There is so much more to do, but I want to keep everything a secret for the people who have not bought this game yet, I am not a spoiler person.
A lot of returning people, music features etc for the people to enjoy. Please for the people who have not got this game, do all Nintendo fans a favor and go pick this up.
PS: There is a multiplayer feature that would be fun with you and your girlfriend or mom etc who don't play games. The multiplayer is you control Mario and whoever is playing with you picks up star bits, so you are interacting with someone.
