I'm in the mid 700s right now but I'm pretty sure I'm not going to stick with it much further. The koopa chases and some of the dark side moons do not seem fun. The Darker Side does actually seem like a fun challenge though.
How many moons did you stop at?
I got just over 500 so I could experience the endgame challenge that it unlocks. I didn’t get much further than that though, I wasn’t up for that kind of intense challenge, and I also have no desire to go back for any more moons. Something about collecting moons in each open environment wasn’t as enjoyable to me as playing through each handcrafted level in the Mario Galaxy games, especially when it comes to the little activities that are repeated across multiple kingdoms.
I think it was around 640 or something. The game was fine; maybe I need to play it more to see what's truly great about it, but it was fine. Okay, I say 'fine' but I do think it was good, just not amazing to me. I think the best last Mario game is still the first Galaxy. I played up to the end of Darker Side of the Moon and quit. I had totally forgotten that you don't have a checkpoint in it, and died and went all the way back to the start of the stage. I said 'nope, I'm done.' I haven't played it since.
