Nothing Bad to Say

Good Points:   

  • Fantastic level design
  • Great music
  • Streamlined overworld 
  • Lots of variety in the gameplay
  • Player 2 can now help player 1, instead of just griefing
  • Beautiful, colorful, bright, cheerful, etc!
  • Just plain fun!
Bad Points:
  • Hmmmmm...
  • I don't know...
  • It's not really a 2-player game...but you could just hand off the controller and take turns if you really want to make it 2-player.
  • Some of it is a little too hard for my 5-year-old...I guess that's bad, right? (No, not really bad, I guess)
  • ...I give up! I can't think of any real complaints.

Seriously, I can't think of any real complaints for this game. It just plain fun. It's the best 3D Mario game. Period. I like the new mushrooms. I like Yoshi. I like the flying levels; they're much better than the manta-ray levels from Galaxy 1, which are missing from Galaxy 2 (thank you, Nintendo). In fact, all the gripes I had with Galaxy 1 seem to have been taken care of with Galaxy 2.  
I love it.

It's as if they're purposefully ignoring us and what we want out of a game, despite the fact there are literally <i>dozens</i> of us out there. I'm of course talking about people who don't like having fun.  "10/10 because it's so much fun!!!", "omg best game I've ever played!", "a non-stop bash set into overdrive!" bah! What about me, the consum...

    Yo, I hear Mario Galaxy 2 is an alright game... 0

    Nintendo’s darling franchise is back, and this time in intergalactic fashion—again. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is essentially a leaner and meaner iteration of its predecessor. Nintendo took every part of the original Mario Galaxy that may have felt like it was slowing the player down, and streamlined it. On top of that, all new gameplay mechanics are thrown into a scary number of ambitiously designed “galaxies”. Collecting power stars has never been this much fun.   Mario and Yoshi are blasting off A...
