The world isn't big enough for Mario anymore!

User Rating: 9.5 | Super Mario Galaxy WII
Story --- The game begins with Mario being invited to the Star Festival at Princess Peach's Castle. Just as Mario approaches the castle, Bowser and a fleet of air ship invade the kingdom. One of Bowser's minions summon a Large space ship that pulls the castle from the ground, and the space ship take the castle to outer space. Mario tries to stop Bowser but instead he is shot across space, and land on a small planet. Soon after Mario meet up with Rosalina and the Lumas. Rosalina is the watcher of the star who lives on a mobile observatory. In order to get to Princess Peach, Mario must jump galaxy to galaxy to collect stars that powers the mobile observatory. After enough stars have been collected Rosalina can travel to the center of the galaxy, so Mario can go and rescue Princess Peach.

Graphics --- Plain amazing! Nintendo takes their time with the Mario series and the graphics shows. When you climbing on the queen bee with Bee Mario, you can actually see her hair move as if the wind was blowing across it. Each of Mario's powers up look fantastic, the best looking would have to be Spring Mario whose bottom half actually looks like metal. The cut scenes were beautiful!!!

Sound --- This game has an awesome soundtrack, and it has to be one of the best soundtrack in all of the Mario series. The one thing that was disappointing was the lack of a voice acting. With all many and long cut scenes this game could have used a voice acting.

Controls --- Mario Galaxy used very little motion controls, and this was a little surprising. The motion controls consisted of a pointer on the screen that's used to collect the star bits, and to do a spin attack you simply shake the Wii Mote. Even with the lack of motion, the controls was are target!

Game Play --- This has to be the best 3D Mario game. Mario Galaxy will test any good platform gamer with is complex level design. Mario Galaxy also offers "co-op" play. The second play only controls the pointer and they just collect the star bits.

Overall --- It's kinda disappointing how the Fire Mario is timed. The cut scenes were long and there is no way to skip them. There's just not much to complain about, this game is just plain fun.
