From review "Very unique compared to other Mario games"

Because it wasn't supposed to be a Mario game (as the review mentions). Nintendo was trying to cash in on the success of SMB, but thought SMB2 (Japan) was too difficult for us Westerners. This game was my least favorite of all the core SMB games.

i actually enjoyed SMB2 a lot more than Mario Sunshine. yeah, i know, i'm one of those rare weird guys who doesn't much care for Mario Sunshine.


though i understand that this game wasnt even really a mario title to begin with, its still one of my favorite games of all time.
