It will take you ten to twenty hours to finish Galaxy 2‘s story (70 Stars), which nets you a completely new unlockable world. After you conquer that, you can go back and get all 120 stars, and unlock yet another bonus. Without ruining too much, the game manages to give you yet another set of 120 stars to find throughout the pre-existing levels in a very unique way. Also, if you’re a Luigi fan, you’re in luck: Luigi is unlocked pretty much at the start of the game as an optional character.
In a new era jaded by DLC, flashy HD visuals, and big budget voice acting contracts, Mario Galaxy 2still manages to remind us why we got into gaming in the first place.
