Super Mario Galaxy 2

 

Super Mario Galaxy 2 alleviates many of the original Super Mario Galaxy's niggles (somewhat confusing navigation and level design), while taking players on an enchanting journey that provides hours of joyous entertainment. The original Super Mario...

Fun and inventive gameplay. Excellent graphics and music

Occasional camera issues

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a more streamlined take on its predecessor, but its added simplicity makes it a more casual-gamer friendly title.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and while it may be on a person to person basis, I believe there is an exception. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is that exception, for any given soul that knows how to play a video game. It's simply very well crafted and is...

Super Mario Galaxy was one of the best Mario games in years, and the sequel — the first direct sequel for a Mario game in years — had a lot to live up to. And it does. Not only does it surpass the original game, it manages to become the best Mario game...

According to many, space is the final frontier. Our vast universe was thought to be the final area of exploration for Mario and company in 2007. The critically acclaimed platformer for the Wii, Super Mario Galaxy, evolved the franchise to a new...

Super Mario Galaxy was the game that saved the Wii for me. Amidst a sea of multiplayer party games and fitness debacles, the stout plumber's beautiful, original, engaging and fun inter-galactic adventure seem to come out at just the right time - when I...

That's how most of the cheats work in Super Mario Galaxy 2, you get a certain amount of stars and you unlock things like whole new worlds, time trial ghosts and even alternate endings. Now how's about a cheat to spawn Yoshi at anytime?

Controls

Fantastic level design, superb graphics and audio, unique and interesting power ups, accessible to all, but challenging for returning players

Starts a little slow, some of the power ups aren't used enough

There were two problems with Super Mario Galaxy: the confusing hub world and the camera. Thankfully the hub world has been all but removed in Galaxy 2. You start on a space ship shaped like Mario's head, where you can talk to support characters, find...

Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games

 

It finally happened. After over twenty years of failed schemes, Bowser had a revelation: he was thinking too small. Kidnapping a princess and taking over a kingdom? Child's play. He's a supervillain; why should he be satisfied with conquering one...

Spoiler: Mario defeats Bowser, rescues Peach, possibly eats some cake before the next kidnapping.

Another amazing Mario game that builds on its immediate predecessor

It gets a little too hard sometimes
