Super Mario Galaxy is a must-have title for any Wii owner, as it is both visually and technically stunning.
From a Plot standpoint, it's Mario, people. We know the drill: Bowser is raisingall kinds of hell, and our favorite Italian Stallion has to stop him. It's time for this plumber to kick some koopa tail.
Visually, Mario Galaxy is among the best on the Wii. Even without HD or the graphical capability of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, Mario Galaxy is beautiful to behold. The spacial theme combined with artistic levels makes this game truly pretty.
Gameplay, while very easy, is quite fun, as it uses physics to simulate a space experience. You'll be running upside down on asteroids and such as if you had suction cups on your feet. It's a fun way to run around, and it's done flawlessly. From a technical standpoint, Mario Galaxy get's an A+. I would challenge anyone to find a substantial flaw.
There are also cool features in the game. On levels, there's a spin to collecting all the stars. Sometimes, comets will be in orbit of certain levels that allow you to complete tasks on them under certain conditions, such as without dying or racing. You also have to help your brother, Luigi, from time to time.
Overall, the only reason this game gets a 9.5 instead of a 10 is because it is very easy. The game shouldn't stump you on more than one or two occasions, as the tasks are easier than in previous games. But, that doesn't detract from the brilliance of Mario Galaxy. This game is a must-play.
