    Super Mario Galaxy

    I picked up Super Mario Galaxy today for my Wii as it has been gathering dust since I downloaded Warhawk. First impressions are good, not sure if it deserves the glowing 10/10 review on gamecentral this week but I will persevere and give updates (but not spoilers) if anyone is interested.

    Hello,

    Do try Metroid Prime 3 Corruption as well if you have the chance.
    A pretty good game too.
    Earth is like a 24 hour, Seven days a week Stupidity contest which has been running for centuries.
    And every time they are ready to pronounce a winner, a new contender appears on the scene.

    I got this yesterday and have played about 2 hours (around 12 stars in) and.......




    It's ****ing ace! Big smile on my face. It's got so many nice touches and feels like a very, very solid game. Everything just works, it all makes sense, looks brilliant and the sound is great too (lots of nods to music from the old games). So far there have been a couple of levels that weren't an instant breeze but required just a bit of extra trying, so it may well have a decent level of challenge but without being ridiculous.

    I am massively impressed. I never consider a 10/10 mark to be a perfect game (as of course there is no such thing) but more of an indication that if you have a Wii this is one of the absolute must-haves - and I couldn't agree with that more. It really is a joy to play.

    However, if you are dead-set that you don't like the mario games, this may not be enough to convince you, other than a few "that was neat" moments.

    The Mario games have always delivered near perfect enjoyment and great gameplay. I've enjoyed them all to date. I will eventually need to buy a Wii so I can play this one.

    Many people slagged off the last one, Mario Sunshine, but I had great fun with that too and played it for hours at a time, and it always feels in Mario games that when you don't get something right (like a jump, timing of something etc) that it was your fault and not a limitation of the game, which is great as it makes you keep playing and attempting it until you get it right.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Have seen the adverts for the game, looks stunning .. BUT ... the giant toads tool made me feel a bit 'uncomfortable'
    This is not a signature

    I saw the advert for this. Sounds good.

    You might be amazed to hear this, but this Wii console sounds quite interesting. I might get one next year if I can afford it (although a PPC is still higher on the list).

    I have liked the Super Mario games that I have played. I managed to get quite far in Super Mario Land on the GameBoy recently. I have played Super Mario on an NES as well, but that was a very long time ago and I still havn't got an NES.

    Steve, being a fan of all things retro I recon you would love a Wii (he he). reliving old nes and megadrive games is fantastic. And so is Super Mario Galaxy on that point. I played it a bit longer and it is really enjoyable, plus my daughter loves it and i dont feel guilty about playing it in front of her unlike Resistance or Warhawk which is basically you just killing / being killed the whole time you play. Ill save those for after her bedtime!

    An excellent game, and really quite hard too. Beating this game was really quite something for me. Do check out Mario land 2 (Six Golden coins) which has some great levels. Mario land 3 (Warioland) is even more fun still - a rare game I 100%d, and without a guide.

    I already have Mario land 2 and Warioland and have had them for quite a long time. Both good games.
