Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)

 

It may be easy to take one look at Super Mario Galaxy 2, see the same gravity-altering traps and spherical worlds from its predecessor, and dismiss this as a by-the-numbers sequel to the superb original. But by assuming you know what to expect from...

Here is the game that Wii owners have been pining for, a game that has tons of appeal for both the less experienced player and the longtime gamer. A game that deftly combines accessibility and challenge, all wrapped up in a package that's both deep and...

Three years ago, Mario hit the Wii with a remarkable 3D entry that brought a ton of innovation to the series through its spherical level designs that fit the galaxy moniker well. It also introduced new items like star bits that acted as both currency...

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a tremendous game and definitely the best one on the Wii. It's one of the best Mario games of all time, and my favorite 3D entry in the series to date. The gameplay, controls, graphics, and music are all incredible and its...

Even after all these years Mario has still got it. Mario. His name is synonymous with gaming. From five year olds to fifty year olds, if you mention Super Mario...

These little stars of mine, I'm gonna let them shine.

Platforming formula is still gold; Excellent Wii visuals; Entrancing soundtrack; A whole lotta stars to collect; Yoshi

Doesn't do anything new; Bland bosses

is surprisingly fun and endearing

Princess Peach has been kidnapped by Bowser, the giant turtle-monster busy trying to conquer the galaxy. So what makes this game different from every other Mario game? Well... most of the levels are set on tiny planetoids, each with their own...

In just a scant two years from the release of the original Super Mario Galaxy, Nintendo uncharacteristically cranked out a sequel to the madly popular original. While fans are typically only treated to one Mario game per life cycle of their recent...

Super Mario Galaxy 2 may utterly lack the original game's originality, but it's just as much a joy to play. Mind the cow.

Funny, but a console generation ago Nintendo was mocking its competitors, pointing to the typical game publisher's proclivity for releasing a single "Big Game" and following it up with several derivative sequels, the predictable "cash cow" modus...

There's just a ton of content that has been packed into SMG2, and almost every single minute of it feels fun, fresh, and true to its roots. Another check in the "win" column for Nintendo.

Imaginative, fun, and really, really hard

Fantastic, creative level design, great new power-ups, Yoshi and Luigi are playable, just as well crafted and expansive as the first Galaxy

Gets far too difficult, far too quickly, linear progression system is inferior to the open-ended map of the first game

Galaxy 2 is every ounce as good of a game as the first, albeit with a difficulty level that requires almost Megaman 9 levels of platforming precision. Longtime Mario fans will gobble this up and love every nanosecond, while casual folks may find...
