This game is one of the best I've played for the Wii so far. I have always liked the mario games, but have been slightly disappointed with the last few I had played. This one reminded me why I like the series so much.
Overall: Very innovative game. Super fun. Defiantly a must for any Mario fan. My only complaint with this game is that the camera is a bit annoying sometimes. It is often locked off or displays Mario upside down when on smaller islands in space. Needless to say, I got use to it and still loved the game.

Best Mario Game on the Wii!

Wow this game is awesome, when I first saw the whole Mario-space thing I was like "eh..." but then I actually played this game and realized how much fun it is! they keep parts retro by having the 2-D side scrolling levels in some parts of the game and the old music as well from all mario series! The graphics for this game are exceptional for being on the Wii and everything looks crystal clear..(if only the Wii could input true HD..). There are a couple things about this game I wasn't too happy about to be honest though. Sometimes the camera could be screwy depending on where you are and where you are trying to go, and this occurs more often when you're underwater. There was one part of the game containing lava and I knew where the secret was to get around a corner but I couldn't turn the camera so I basically had to guess jump around the corner and risk being burned once or twice by lava to get to the secret. If you're a veteran mario player like myself, then don't expect too much difficulty early into this game, I mean for me I'd never say the game actually gets really hard, and the most I've probably died trying to complete on specific star would be about 10 times. But all in all, anyone who has or is a mario fan should play this game. You won't be disappointed, it's definitely a must buy game for anyone who has a wii.

super mario galaxy is a GREAT game and it takes me all the way back to super mario 64. the boss battles are really cool. the controls are perfect. they really utilize the wii's control system and the graphics are really really good. I think this is one of... scratch that. THE best super mario game I have ever played. the only thing I didn't like is that you can only take 3 hits unless you get a life shroom which bumps you up to 6 life points. anyway if you are a mario fan then you will love this game no matter WHAT! RENT THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
