Games Thirst Review: Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)

Ultimately, Super Mario Galaxy 2 is the better game when pitted against its already excellent original brethren. We wondered how Nintendo could possibly outdo themselves with Super Mario Galaxy, yet somehow they managed to do it. No hyperbole, no exaggerations, Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a masterpiece in game design and most importantly fun. The challenge that was absent in the original Galaxy is here, the level design constantly throws new things at the player, and the presentation is just astounding. If you own a Wii and have any interest in seeing gaming perfection, pick up Super Mario Galaxy 2. Even if you don’t, the original and its superior sequel should be more than enough of a reason to pick one up. This is why we play video games.

The guys who developed this game must be masters at what they do. It's just plain awesome!

A great game for sure. Good score too, it deserves it. It's amazing how people give Nintendo so much heat when they've been the most successful company this generation.

On another level altogether.

Nintendo is doing great true, but they sacrificed the hardcore. Then again, one could argue they never really had the hardcore.

Depends what you define by hardcore I suppose, seems to be a word thrown around without any real meaning. I've played games since the early eighties and have owned pretty much every console there is, I love Nintendo games and play on the wii as much as my ps3 and pc.

So if I fall into this 'hardcore' bracket, then they haven't abandoned me because I still enjoy playing their games, and I have plenty of them.

Like I said, depends what you define by hardcore.

I've been playing this game for the last 3 days and I can tell you that this is one that the hardcore gamer would really enjoy. Take my advice, take off the goggles. This game is one that everyone should play.

they've done like 7 casual titles and over 20 something core titles.

It's sad that you read a random hate blog and go around quoting it as fact when the truth is Core Wii gamers couldnt be happier.

To Nintendo gamers hardcore games are those that require skill to beat.

To Sony gamers they think hardcore means blood and foul language.

True true. I wish they had more hardcore games though : (
