Edge Gives A Perfect 10/10 To Super Mario Galaxy

Super Mario Galaxy is impossible. Don't get the wrong idea – it's not a particularly difficult game, although it does have its moments. What Edge means is, it obeys no rules, contradicts everything gamers know, and has no right to exist.

Mario Galaxy turns 3D into 2D, and 2D into 3D. It takes complex spatial ideas and makes them simple and instinctive; it takes the most basic, most familiar acts in gaming and makes them strange, finger-twisting and fresh. It resurrects the pure platform game in a universe where it's hard to fall off things. It rewrites its own rules in almost every level, sometimes more than once. Super Mario Galaxy rejoices in turning the world upside down. (Super Mario Galaxy, Wii)

@ Meastro...
I posted this just for you. I saw it in the tips section, and I know that you are a Super Mario Galaxy enthusiast, as I am. Keep up the good PR on Nintendo's newest Mario gem.

And to others, what is with all the hate??? Super Mario Galaxy is a great game. It has the highest rating on Metacritic ever.

so because it's the highest rated game on metacritic makes it GREAT...it's funny this game gets a get out of jail free card for it's easiness because it's MARIO but they dog R&C..for the same thing...

I've played it's a good game..but it's doesn't deserve all the 10/10.nd even an 11/10...

SMG is easy? Maybe half of it is easy, but it's a rare person it seems that doesn't appreciate the gradual increase in difficulty. I decided when I bought this game that I would go the purist route and get all 119 stars before I beat it because I had a similar concern. After 80 or so I said screw that idea and went ahead and beat it. A week later I am somewhat stuck at 111 stars. The blue and red comet levels have many among them that are downright nasty, the green star levels are crazy, and the purple comet levels are pretty much evil. Did you play the whole game or did you just beat it real quick and cast it aside? I don't think there is such a thing as a gamer that won't be greatly challenged on at least 10-15 levels on that game.

F1 CE PS3 rumble and force feedback now active :->
Hi there i know its off topic but this amazing patch has totally transformed the best f1 game to ever come out on a console, now the game is so much better you can feel every bump and the force feedback has to be the best i have ever experianced.

I live in the UK and dont know if this patch is worldwide or not. Note this has nothing to do with the mirror patch and i can see no options to connect the psp as a wing mirror.

Just load the game up and it will tell you version 1.10 is ready to download, click on yes and enjoy the game, good time to buy a logitech wheel for your ps3. I have a driving force EX wheel and its perfect.

I don't believe you. I believe you when you infer that you don't particularly care for this game. But I don't believe you that you played it from start to finish and found it easy, unless you just called it quits after 60 stars. If the latter is the case, then you are missing out my friend. You should revisit the game and have some more enjoyment. :)

Edge lost all credibility when they gave Halo 3 10/10.
Maestro  +   2836d ago
But they recovered the credibility when they gave a perfect score to a perfect game (Super Mario Galaxy). Lol all those haters, keep pressing the disagree button!! LOL.

You sir
Need more bubbles.
Haters cannot deal with the reality you talk about, therefore they try to keep you quiet...
Danja  +   2836d ago
why don't you check his comments and you will see why had 2 bubbles..he's a troll...that spews negativity about the PS3...

Do you deserve the same number of bubbles as him?

Or does he deserve the same number of bubbles as you?

LOL - Editorial reviews now have as much value as used toilet paper.
Might as well start handing out 20/10s, hell, lets go with 100/10 and let's get thing rolling.

The state of editorial reviews is pathetic this gen. PR groups run the gaming media now, it's all just gone down the crapper and editorial reviews now have no meaningful value to the greater gaming community anymore. Sad really.
Big Jim  +   2836d ago
I agree completely. Video game reviews have been inflated for a long time, but now its gotten totally out of control. Reviewers, magazines, web-sites, all of them are just prostitutes.
DethWish  +   2835d ago
Yep, better to look at much smaller magazines for just scores.
IQUITN4G  +   2836d ago
Finally a game that deserves the tag next gen.Apart from slightly prettier graphics this time round from 360 and PS3, gameplay has remained exactly the freaking same.I love my graphics but what's the point when nothing ever changes past what is was.So much power going to waste on essentially exactly the same stuff and that just doesn't cut it.

Wii is underpowered and 480 is fairly dire on HD tv but while all of this is certainly disapointing, i'll be choosing this over the gorgeous seen and done it R+C.

The games industry needs to grow up fast if it's to remain an interesting enough hobby for some of us.

Thank god for games like Galaxy

videogame critics suck more than film critics

The year of overrating.

Halo 3 and Super Mario part 3884 as great examples.
texism  +   2836d ago
It's like for every writer that decides to do the "oooh I'll downrate Mario to get hits for my POS website" there's another 10/10 for Mario right around the corner.
Alcohog  +   2836d ago
Edge is such a joke!
Big Jim  +   2836d ago
I think every game magazine out there these days is a joke. A 10 is completely meaningless now. I lost all faith in all game magazine reviews when nearly every critic gave the utterly average Halo 3 a 10.
BubyDudy  +   2835d ago
The same discussion again and again and again and again and again...

Just IGNORE them. I mean, half of comments are like "I hate EDGE". Yes, you do hate Edge, but by commenting here you are doing what Edge needs to stay alive. If you hate news about games being rated 11/10, 1000/100, 101%, or something else, just don't read these news. And, fod god's shake, if you read them, don't comment!
Skynetone  +   2835d ago
Wow a lot of haters here 10/10 from edge is a amazing score from the best mag on the planet
id pick it up in a second if it came out for the ps3 but im not going to buy a wii just for one game
