I really enjoyed the first Mario Galaxy and I knew that this one would not disappoint. Perhaps it is too similar to the first one for a lot of people, but I left the first one wishing I had more levels to play. There are a lot of galaxies to explore, and there are even more stars to find (some easy, and some difficult). This game rewards you for continuing through the game more than any other Mario game.
Graphics - 8/10 - It's a Mario game. That said, the graphics don't need to be overly detailed in this game. They are really good for what they need to be.
Gameplay - 9/10 - It runs pretty smooth and Mario seems to do everything my fingers tell him to do. One drawback is the camera which usually follows you and rotates accordingly. There were rare instances where I got crammed or turned out of view, but this is not a gamebreaker by any means.
Replay - 8/10 - I will definitely keep playing this game way past the point of "beating" it...hopefully until I get the rediculous amount of stars; so in that way it keeps me motivated to continue.
Overall - 8.3/10 - I am an avid gamer and I enjoy the most violent and the most childish of adventures. This is a really good game, and although Mario continues down the spiral of cartoonish appeal and decreasing difficulty, I would recommend renting this game to about anyone.
(I give it a 10 because of some jaded fool who gave it a "1")
i was amazed by the first galaxy game and my heart started to pump when i herd a sequel was coming out. i just got the game and it has proven to be an incredible challenge for beginners and experts. all 120 stars require a puzzle or some unique way to get it. this game requires thinking and brain smarts for all the puzzles in this game. this is my 2nd favorite game i have out of 10 but super smash bros brawl still proves its self to be my favorite title for the wii system.
I loved the new super mario bros for wil, i beat it and enjoyed it..
but after playing this 3 times in a row for a bout 3 hours trying to like it, i learned that this game is REALLY bad, even mario 64 beat it let alone..
I LOVE SPACE and i love mario, why wont this work? To me its just to slow and its the same stuff i always do in mario game, i feel like im just doing things i did 10 years ago but now i can fall off stuff 10x more witch makes me hate it even more..
this is BETTER then the first one but at less i made it haft way few the first one.. rent it.. dont waste ur money on it.
