Review: GamePro Loves Super Mario Galaxy

Mario reaches for the stars in his new intergalactic adventure, Super Mario Galaxy. Strap on your space boots and come along for the ride as Gamerhelp Editor Patrick Shaw tours the cosmos and explains why Galaxy is the best Mario game since the timeless classic, Mario 64. (Super Mario Galaxy, Wii) 5/5

They gave it an overall 5/5 but they gave all 3 aspect of Graphics, Control and Sound 4.75/5 in their review. Wasn't Mario Galaxy supposed to be the best looking Wii game as well as the most technically advanced?

Whatever, its Mario! I want a Wii now...

Don't you get it by now? It isn't about having the best graphics or being the most technically advanced. Its about how much fun it is to play. If smg really is on the level with mario 64 and sm3 I may be tempted to pick up a wii myself this holiday (if I can find one that is).

Sorry Mario you suck
Played it at Game Stop for about a minute and the game looks so ugly I gave the paddle to a 5yr standing next to me. He loved it. GO GAME PRO. Trust me this game look almost as good as Mario Sun Shine.

Hmmm....
I'm glad to see you looked at the game objectively. /Sarcasm

I don't get the 4.75 for graphics. It is probably the best you can do with the Wii hardware, it should've gotten a 5.
power091999  +   2732d ago
That's a good question....
Is the graphics review based on what the Wii can do, or based on what all three consoles can do.
MK_Red  +   2732d ago
Good question and points. In it's based on what Wii can do, it should get 5/5 in that category and if it's based on what all 3 can do, it deserves 2/5 or something compared to PS3 and 360 games.
Brainiac 8  +   2732d ago
Excellent querry as far as reviews go. Should they, knowing that a game on the Wii can't match the 360/PS3, review comparably or by itself?

I don't really think it's fair to judge it comparing it to the other two in the graphics dept, since it'll be an automatic lose for the game. Super Mario Galaxy is the closest the Wii has come to matching the others. As much as I love the graphical prowess of my PS3, it still does not ruin my experience or opinion of the Wii or it's games.

But to each his own.

If Gamepro gave Metroid's graphics a 4.5, and this a 4.75, maybe Brawl will finally give the Wii a 5.0. Hopefully.

Game of the year here, folks.

that whole week is going to be shot for me. SMG and AC....busy busy!
okcomputer  +   2732d ago
I know what you mean. On nov. 20 w/uncharted and mass effect I may be tempted to use a few of those sick days from work i've got saved. This winter is the best holiday season for games that i can remember.
solar  +   2732d ago
holy crap....
thats right i got Uncharted a week after those two. i guess that whore of a girlfriend i had dumping me paid off. i can afford my video games and my sanity :D

Mario Galaxy
is about the fun and it sounds like this game has it in spades. A great reason to own a Wii along with several others.
