Gametrailers has a video that compares Super Mario Galaxy with Mario Sunshine. Before you watch it, I want you to look at a few key areas.

1) Level Design (they are quite similar)
2) Control Scheme / Camera (they are quite similar)
3) Character Models (practically identical)
4) Art sty1e(indistinguishable)
5) Voice acting (LOLers!!)

http://www.gametrailers.com/game/2660.html

So much for all of this supposed innovation. I wonder why Sunshine flopped hard, yet a derivative rehash several years later which looks nearly identical is some kind of genre defining blockbuster.

Yeah, every single professional video game reviewer must have lost their minds while playing it. Including gametrailers which gave it a 9.8.

lol all I get are people saying bu bu teh reviews! Look at the video. Its even in high def so you can't blame the compression. The games are practically identical. Half the time you can't even tell them apart. Sheep are laughable. And I thought PS3 fanboys were blind.MrEpyx

no they arent. Play the game first. (you are lieing your ass off if you say that you have)

1) Level Design (they are quite similar) Can you go upside down in sunshine?

2) Control Scheme / Camera (they are quite similar) No water jet in Galaxy, No wiimote in sunshine. Camera in Galaxy is automatic most of the time, not in sunshine.
3) Character Models (practically identical) Yeah, Not much diference.

4) Art sty1e(indistinguishable) Sunshine has a cel-shaded look to it. Galaxy looks sharper, cuz of the textures.
5) Voice acting (LOLers!!) There's barely no voice action in Galaxy, if there's any.:| Beside the woohoo's of course lolMrEpyx

You're trying too hard.

This thread is just sad.

If you're going to make fun of a game, at least try to find one that hasn't scored 9.5+ on almost every site.

Not to feed the troll here but just to add to what everyone else is saying.... The music in Galaxy is absolutly amazing. It's been a long time since I found myself whistling along withvirtually everysong from a game. Fully orchestrated music is a huge plus.

1)level designs are completely different, spacew/ planets =/= island

2-4) then why is halo 3 a hit?

5)-no good voice acting = bad game? riiiight

"I wonder why Sunshine flopped hard, yet a derivative rehash several years later which looks nearly identical is some kind of genre defining blockbuster."

When I started playing Galaxy, I was confused at first because I was used to having the water pack to give me an extra boost when I couldn't reach a high ledge- it took some getting used to even though I've 100%ed Mario 64. That kinda proved to me that the Jetpack was a pretty good idea.

1) Perhaps you haven't played SMG, because it's level design is what makes it entirely different from SMS.
2) Control scheme is the same just like Halo 1 and 2 were the same. It's still a Mario game and still a platformer. And the camera is more accurate than in SMS, and easier to fix if you don't like the angle.
3) Same characters, except they look better.
4) Again, except much better.
5) It's Mario, heavy voice acting would ruin it.

I can pick out smiliarities between Doom and Halo and claim Halo is just a doom rehash. In fact yiou can do that with any shooter.

They missed out all the difefrences between them.

Ratceht and Clank TOD is more of a dull rehash of the PS2 games. There's no point comparing Galaxy to Sunshine because it is totally different to it in mostly everyway.

1. Notice how they did not include every level of every game. They're not very similar.
2. Duh, both are based on Super Mario 64.
3. No crap, same characters!
4. No, no, Galaxy looks better.

Um the real difference was in game play and they definetly don't have similar control schemes because of Flud and only a few of the 40+ levels were throwbacks.

You are wrong about pretty much everything there.

Level designs are completely different, camera is usually out of your control in SMG, where in SMS you controled the camera. Art sty1e indistinguishable? I hope you know your wrong and your just trying to get attention.
