Is it really out of this world?
An amazing game! Jaw-dropping gameplay, top-notch level design, great art-style and awesome soundtrack!
I played a few hours of it but I'd say SMG1 was better. Everything felt so same-y except it lost its almost Disney-like storybook quality. And it felt forced since no mention of the last game were present. Like when Mario meets the toads for the first time in 2. Feels so disconnected. And the level selection screen felt too lifeless after playing 1. Maybe it's cause I really* played 1 for all it was worth before 2 came out (got every star) that 2 felt almost tired to me by the time I played it. Gotta retry it soon. edit: Oh and I hated that purple thing!
Yep, best platformer this gen!
Agreed. Closely followed by Super Mario Galaxy 1 and Donkey Kong Country Returns. Nintendo has really delivered great platformers this generation, as always.
New Super Mario Bros Wii is up there as well. The 4 player mayhem and fun really changed the approach. And the fact that I can also enjoy it in single player is great as well. Looking forward to New Super Mario Bros Mii next year on Wii U.
Great looking, great gameplay mechanics, and it has replay value to boot!
Both mario galaxies are ones of the best platformers I've ever played :) timeless games..
Galaxy 2 is some of the most fun i've ever had with a game.
