    coyoteman_1's Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)

    [January 25, 2008 08:01:38 PM]
    After my second gaming session, I feel like I must retract something I said earlier. The upside-down, twisting style of gameplay does get a little uncomfortable. Sometimes I thought that I would be going in a certain direction by moving the control stick a certain way, but I would move in the opposite direction. Other than that I have no major complaints.
    The great fun and excitement that comes with playing this game get more intense as it goes on. The boss battles with the big lava squid, King Calamari, Bowser Jr., and that big wizard Koopa thing are not very challenging, but I like that. I would have to say that the best boss battle is the one with Bowser Jr.'s big robot. It is great fun climbing up a massive robot and battling it from the top. It's fun.

    Well, as always the wiimote gives another element to the game. The game looks great, the gameworlds are interesting, it's always cool to float through space and the creatures are interesting. The controls are relatively simple, other than being upside-down sometimes, it's easy to maneuver around. It is obvious that the designers really had a clear idea of what they wanted and worked hard to get the desired effects. It's really just a good game.

    Goodness gracious! Mario is back! This time Bowser has stolen Princess Peach's castle and taken it to OUTER SPACE! It is up to Mario to travel through different galaxies to try and save her. This time the Wii Remote gives extra movement based powers. Plus you can collect and shoot "starbits" (which are little pieces of stars that give you an extra life when you collect fifty) with the greatest of ease. The most notable aspect of Super Mario Galaxy is the game worlds. There are several different planets each with its own gravitational center, so you can run and jump to the other side with great ease.

    Super Mario Galaxy is a very interesting game. The seeming expanse of this three-dimensional universe makes the player feel like they have total control in the game. The controls are very easy to learn, and as always the Wiimote adds fun to the mix by allowing the player to swing around. All the cute, silly stars, toads and other creatures make for a humorous good time.

    In addition to the great gameplay, the game has a great look and feel to it. Each world is beautifully made with great accuracy and although you can get turned upside-down and in all different directions, oddly enough, it is not very disorienting. The little details really come out, like the shiny glimmer of the stars and the grains on the wood planks. Playing this game really made me wish I had a better TV.

    All of these things combined make for an excellent gameplay experience. Everything is fun, the challenges are just challenging enough and sometimes a little easy (for me, this is a positive thing) and the universe is absolutely beautiful. It is definitely the best game for Wii that I have played.
