Super Mario Galaxy gets 9.75/10 from Game Informer

Super Mario Galaxy takes players on a journey unlike any other, but there are parts of it that should have been lost in time. A good portion of the story is pushed off to the side and is completely optional. While it's nice that you rarely have to fuss with the camera, there are times where walls will obstruct your view, or you won't be able to rotate the perspective to see where you are supposed to jump next. And worst of all, for a game that puts such an emphasis on going out of your way to get an extra life, all of your lives are reset when you turn the Wii off.

Wow, they gave a higher score to COD4 (10/10). But really both games rock beyond measure.

seriously, this game is awesome, i have a feeling my halo 3 is gonna start to gather up dust...i just cant seem to put the game down, its so damn addicting

Yeah MK, I think this review is right on though. It has just enough flaws to knock it from a 10 but not enough to really even deserve 9.5 I have played about three hours in and this game is great, In terms of Wii games this and Zelda:TP are really the only games worth a damn when it comes to proper controls. and both deserve the high marks. But still hard to compare against a game like COD4 which is a great game and a graphics powerhouse.

I have yet to check out Zack and Wiki but I heard that is good also.

MK_Red4052d ago

You've got to play Zack & Wiki. It's the classic point & click adventure reborn!
As for Wii games, I also loved Metroid Prime 3's control a lot.

I'm sad no one is buying Zack & wiki, I'm buying it and I really don't have to buy games anymore.

MK_Red4052d ago

True. I hate Wii and games like Wii Play/Sports but Zack & Wiki alone is enough to make me buy the Wii and make me like the console a bit.

BrotherNick4052d ago

I hope this doesn't turn into an Okami :| gonna buy that when it comes out for the wii.
