It’s a me! Mario!

This game takes massive inspiration from the previous games like Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario 64 with a 3D Semi-open world style. Super Mario Galaxy takes you to a Galaxy unexplored by Mario, the actual Galaxy.

It truly is out of this world!

The story of Super Mario Galaxy has a similar formula to all Mario games, save Princess Peach from Bowser which is the core story. It always seems to add that little difference within it. The difference in this game was that every 100 years a star festival will be held, cursing stars to fall onto planets, but all-stars have been stolen by bowser so the ship carrying the stars can’t be powered. So, your job is to get the stars to power the ship which will get you through the galaxy and save Princess Peach. A simple story but it’s still a very good one every time.

Mario looks good in every version.

The graphics are great and at the time in 2007, it was the best Mario has been shown graphically with cartoon 3D which we’ve all come to love. If you’re a Mario fan that is, but you must be right. The game cut scenes and play through all the game looks brilliant colourful and enjoyable with no two worlds looking the same. There were truly some dedicated animators behind every part of this game.

It will make you star-eyed.

The Gameplay of Super Mario Galaxy is a classic Mario game in classic Mario style, you’ve got the classic jump, the classic spin, you’ve got all the classic move sets, what Mario has become known and loved for. There’s more to this though as there are small worlds to have to navigate through which are detailed and have their puzzles to complete where you have to use these classic moves and some new ones too, to traverses to completely different areas at every new stage of the game. Meaning that you’re always on your toes and always surprised and waiting for what new thing pops up in the next stage of the game. It also adds a curser to the game, it was on the Wii, you could point with the curser to collect coin and to solve certain puzzles in the game. As well as this, it also changes up, as you finish the game with every possible collectable you unlock a new mode where you can play as Mario brother Luigi and with that different details and different speeds to his moves and jump height. There are subtle changes to the characters, but it does give a whole different feel playing as Luigi.

It’s a star and a half.

Super Mario Galaxy is an arming game that has every perfect it didn’t change too much to a beloved character like Mario and it changes just the right amount to give you the best experience which feels fresh and different from other Mario games.

Game Reviews

Nintendo's mascot sure has gotten the shaft during the company's last two console launches (his bro stole the GameCube spotlight in Luigi's Mansion, and then some mute elf took the Wii center stage in Twilight Princess). But when you're about to go intergalactic like the plumber intends to here, maybe some extra prep time isn't a bad thing.

Thanks to the Wii's funky new control scheme, this Super Mario takes the hop-and-bop platformer formula and wonderfully rewrites it. You'll use the Wii-mote to interact with these high-in-the-sky backdrops in all sorts of crazy ways, such as waggling it to hurl yourself from planet to planet and using the onscreen cursor to snatch items far out in the Milky Way. The dev team is even tinkering around with how using this joypad in tandem can enhance multiplayer (they've mentioned how one person could move Mario with the Nunchuk, while another provides aid with the Wii Remote).
