Will you be going 242?

To be fair getting 120 stars in this game is pretty easy but I've started 'round two' and can already see that it's a bit crap.  I can imagine people doing it with a game guide but I've never done that in my life.  Maybe I'd try it every week or so, but not for long.

Already finished that a week ago. The very last galaxy is no cakewalk (unlike the one from the first game).  
I found the green stars to be a better "second quest" than just doing the exact same stars again as Luigi. There's no real progression in difficulty with them, as its kinda all over the place (the green stars in a galaxy are the same amount as the regular power stars). Plus its not that hard to find where the stars are (there's that tinkling sound they make, so you can listen to where they are). Trying to get them is the real challenge.
 
On the OCD side of things, it's worth it to see every galaxy completed with a gold crown.

Just vote when You've got an idea of what you'll do.  I played it every day until I got the 120 but then started the green stars and it's just not as compelling for me, maybe because I've got a big pile of games to get on with.
 
I felt like there's a longer time between when you can do a shakey-spin attacks than the first game but don't know if that's crap as I leant out my first game and haven't had it back.  (Haven't even get 120 in the first one and really want to get it back now.)

Question: Is 'Luigi's purple coins' style level back? 
 
If not, then sure. If yes, then Fuck No, the last time drove me mad.

There are purple coin levels but they're just prankster comets in the main campaign and they're pretty easy.  Easier than the one Chimp Challenge jumping on octos.

I won't give up on a Mario game unless it's simply too hard, like in Mario Sunshine.

That Chimp Challenge was pretty easy, unless you mean a different one from the one I played.

I already did.  I'm never doing that again.

I did not get all Luigi stars in SMG1, but we'll see about this one.

How many points did you have to get?  10,000?  the 600 I think it was, that was eeeaasy.  The 10k one with the swing is just a bit annoying and it took me a few times to work out where to focus my time.
 
I've done a few more green stars today but I can already seeing it lacking the fun of the main game and having to slog in a Mario game is not really what I want.

I love Mario but man, I've never wanted to 100% any of the 3D Mario games, that's just too much Mario for me.
