Edge's Super Mario Galaxy 2 review - 10/10

Edge: "Marvel at the pieces, but appreciate the whole. This isn’t a game that redefines the genre: this is one that rolls it up and locks it away. We’ve come so far, from stepping on mushrooms to drop-kicking meteors into the heart of the sun; Galaxy 2 offers a new understanding of where we’ve been, a new sense of wonder at where we’ll go next."

Woah Woah Woah i was only browsing i had no plan on clicking this until i saw EDGE and a 10/10 are my eyes deceiving me?
is this a sign that the end is near?

Not your eyes that are deceiving you its Edge. Honestly I'm sure this is a good game but not a 10 come on. Just look at the videos for it looks like the same Mario since 64. IDK I just hate milking and love me some innovation.

pangitkqb3027d ago

Honestly, I loved it. It was so fun and such visual stunner for little white system that could. The sequel looks even better. Still, Edge is usually as tight fisted with a perfect score as they come.

Good to see.

The best mario game is Super Mario Sunshine XD It had a better setting and story going on than any other mario game and was just sooooo much fun!! This will be a great game too though I'm sure :D

Marceles3026d ago (Edited 3026d ago )

Sunshine was ok but it was probably the most forgettable Mario game that's come out since Mario 64, it was easier too. All of the shortcuts in Mario 64 were there, but they were even easier to do because of the water pump. Everything was a side-backflip + wall jump + water pump away.

Mario Galaxy's level design was brilliant since you couldn't do that and made your mind think of different perspectives on how to play. Not many games force you to play upside down with gravity while going the opposite way. I can't wait for 2.

lociefer3027d ago

it-a-mario, he always gets an easy pass

Danteh3026d ago

well Miyamoto is god, and it shouldn't be a surprise this got a 10, it's f!cking Mario! :D

I have very very high hopes for Zelda Wii... I think with the 1:1 motion controls it can be a genre-redefining game, like Ocarina of Time was in its time. Twilight Princess was such a disappointment :(

Homicide3026d ago

Edge gave NSMB Wii a 7, so no, Mario doesn't always get a free pass.

OT: Great review. Doesn't surprise me as Mario Galaxy 1 is one, if not, the best game this gen.


f Edge gave it a 10 then everyone must play this game!

Bodyboarder_VGamer3027d ago (Edited 3027d ago )

edge gave a 10 to bayonetta and that game wasn't that incredible. more like an 8 to me... graphics were horrible and particulary glitchy on PS3 so a 7 is more like it.

i'm not doubting miyamoto (or whoever made this game), just edge...

Arnon3027d ago

Cant wait for this. Reserved it yesterday.

SuperStrokey11233027d ago

I reserved mine a couple days ago as well. cant wait for it.

Perjoss3027d ago

edge have always added a couple of points onto the nintendo franchise reviews, you call them nintendo fanboys, in a nice way of course.

StanLee3027d ago

Looks like another Game of the Year for Mario if reviews are consistent. Never doubted it would get a great score but a 10 from Edge is impressive.

Time Lord3027d ago

So no surprises here imo

badz1493027d ago

eventhough it plays just like the games before it, none will mention about no innovation, same like before of something like that!

vhero3027d ago (Edited 3027d ago )

Mario? Check! okay give it a 10! Done! Gotta love these rating systems eh? First game didn't deserve the acclaim it got and the second game isn't half the game the first one is..

Fierce Musashi3026d ago (Edited 3026d ago )

Hey, pal. EDGE gave NSMBWii a 7 out of ten. So that right there kicks that argument's a**.... Moving on.

"First game didn't deserve the acclaim it got >>>>>>> and the second game isn't half the game the first one is <<<<<<< .."

How is it you know this for certain when the game isn't even out yet? Did you get it early? Highly don't believe it. Hell, do you even own Galaxy 1?

badz1493026d ago

to be fair, NSMBWii is just a remake of the DS version plus 3 more players! do you expect everyone to give it a 10? if a rehashed games + some extra features starts to spark 10 all over the place, you can say goodbye to good new games, and welcome to Marios and CoDs!

Fierce Musashi3026d ago (Edited 3026d ago )

Acutally, there are new and different power-up and levels to add too that. Not much of a remake, if you ask me.

seinfan3027d ago

If it was any other character and the game mechanics and graphics were still the same, it'd probably get a 7 or 8.

eagle213027d ago

Can't wait to play this game. Luigi will also play a huge role this time from the new trailer Nintendo just released. Just awesome!!! :)

smash-brother-103027d ago

@ the people that say it only gets a high score because its mario, well maybe the game is actually rather good, and none of you have actually played it yet, just a thought

seinfan3026d ago

How about Mario games have sucked since the Gamecube?

ReservoirDog3163027d ago

Well the proof isn't in the score, it's in the review. And one of the most brutally scoring reviewer throws around comments like "a game that refuses to bore you"? The best minds at nintendo are thrown at mario so it really isn't surprising to hear it's really good.

I originally only preordered this from amazon cause it was such a good deal but it looks like it'll be worth far more than I expected.

Sarcasm3026d ago (Edited 3026d ago )

Seeing as edge is a huge nintendo fan, i dont get the surprised reaction

Mo0eY3026d ago

It's a 10 out of 10 because of Yoshi, fools. Yoshi is the baddest mother around.

AEtherbane3026d ago

If Edge gives a non-360 game a 10/10, it must a GOTY contender

Noctis Aftermath3026d ago

Is this the first review for this game?

Metacritic is only showing edges review, to me the first review being a 10/10 is totally suspect.

Just my 2¢.

Wow, this a surprise to be honest. Although they gave the first one 10 didn't they.

Loving the new N4G look as well!

n4f3027d ago

akashifire3027d ago

I can't wait to play it.

PS360WII3027d ago
