Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

Every hundred years a comet passes over the Mushroom Kingdom and rains down stars and stardust, and as Princess Peach and the citizens of the kingdom are celebrating the centennial event, Bowser and his legions attack by launching asteroids at the Mushroom Kingdom and crystalizing the Toads! Knowing that Bowser is after Princess Peach, Mario runs to save her. Things go awry as Bowser summons a massive spaceship, abducts Peach's entire castle and hits Mario with a massive magical attack. The next thing he knows, he finds himself on a mysterious moon high above the Mushroom Kingdom!

The ultimate Nintendo hero is taking the ultimate step ... into space.

  • Navigate Mario through a bevy of exciting new worlds and the depths of space, with all new enemies, power-ups and attack skills, as he collects the Stars needed to save Princess Peach!

  • Become Mario™ as he traverses gravity-bending galaxies, traveling in and out of gravitational fields by blasting from planet to planet. Players experience dizzying perspective shifts as they run upside down through wild alien worlds that need to be seen to be believed. Whether you're surfing on a ray across an ocean in the clouds, rolling on a ball through a treacherous garden, or floating in a bubble over a poisonous swamp, there's no limit to the cosmic challenges you'll encounter!

  • Controlling Mario is simple with the Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™. Players move Mario with the Control Stick and shake the Wii Remote to perform a spin move or cue stars that launch him to and from planetary objects. Players can even point at Star Bits to collect them or latch on to stars to blaze a magnetic trail through the heavens.

  • Don't want to head into space alone? With a second Wii Remote, another player can play alongside by pointing at and collecting Star Bits, then launching them at enemies. The second player can even sweep aside projectiles or stall enemies to help make Mario's adventure easier.

  • Search the depths of space for all-new transformations! As Boo Mario, you can hover over the ground and even slip through walls! Or, transform into Bee Mario and buzz through the sky!

Two player functionality ESRB Rated RP for Rating Pending

Product Description

As always with any Nintendo game console, the first Super Mario game is one of the defining experiences on the system. Join Mario as he ushers in a new era of video games, defying gravity across all the planets in the galaxy. When some creature escapes into space with Princess Peach, Mario gives chase, exploring bizarre planets all across the galaxy. Since he's in space, Mario can perform mind-bending jumps unlike anything he's done before. He'll also have a wealth of new moves that are all based around tilting, pointing and shaking the Wii Remote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Callous-Inducing Fun Dec 26 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As I type this review, I have little feeling in my left thumb because of the callous I have developed from the nunchuk as a result of playing this game so much.

I love this game because it is visually stunning, funny, easy to figure out, and fun to play.

This is a beautiful game. The developers have figured out how to make a game enjoyable to look at by giving it a lush, colourful, landscape and lots of shiny, shimmering, furry, and bright characters and backgrounds. Even when I'm not playing I enjoy watching the screen.

The characters are ridiculously cute. Seriously. They make funny noises and even the things that kill you are adorable. I feel guilty killing such lovable creatures, but then I'm rewarded with coins and star bits so I get over it...

I've heard that Nintendo likes the games they develop to be easy enough to figure out that anyone can navigate their way through the game, but also filled with opportunities to take different, more challenging routes for more experienced gamers.

I find this to be the case with Super Mario Galaxy. I am able to quickly go through the levels if I don't want to explore and just want to stay alive or move on to the next level. When I have more time to dedicate or more back up lives to spare, I can go to different places in the game that are harder to get to and rack up extra points. I like this about the game. I can choose whether or not to kill the enemies, but either way I can still advance. This is nice if more than one person in a house will be playing the game. There are many ways to play it and all are valid. My friend will have a completely different experience playing it than I will because we choose to explore different parts of the game.

I have silly fun playing this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Top Wii games ever! Aug. 14 2008

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game not to long ago, and had extremely high expectations for it, since everyone seems to be going on about how amazing it was. I was nervous it wouldn't be as good as I was hoping it would, but I was so happy to find out it is. I have a hand cramp from playing it so much. It uses all the features of the Wii remote flawlessly, and it is so much fun to play. It is fairly easy to get the hang of, but still presents a challenge as a game. I would recommend this to everyone that they buy it. It is by far one of the best games out there for the Wii

5.0 out of 5 stars The best game in the Mario series yet. Nov. 27 2007
By D9230
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you haven't already purchased this game, do it now. Super Mario Galaxy is hands-down the best Wii game ever released to date. It's the best game Mario game I've ever played too - even better than the original epic NES ones.

The 3D atmosphere is breathtaking. The graphics are outstanding and while the game can be a little easy at times, it's so much fun and it's so charming. It's perfect for all ages - from the 8 year old casual gamer to the 20 year old hardcore gamer to the 99 old non-gamer.

The Wii has a bad reputation for millions of microgames targeted to a casual audience. It's time to end that reputation and enjoy Super Mario Galaxy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GALAXY OF INNOVATIVE IDEAS AND FUN! Oct. 13 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When it comes to Mario games, the last one I owned was Super Mario Land 2 for the GameBoy. Boy was I in for a surprise!

SUPER MARIO GALAXY is a phenomenal game, one that took the franchise into a whole new direction, added another dimension and opened up an entire, well, galaxy, of jumping, running, flying, spiraling, swimming, star-gathering, planet-hoping and princess-saving.

The graphics fit the Wii perfectly and as stunning as they may be it is the sounds and music that will make this masterpiece of a game unforgettable.

SMG can be played with either the Wiimote (Nunchuk required) or with a Classic Controller. Both are easy to pick up and quick to master.

A game all my family greatly enjoyed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game - if you don't have vertigo Dec 26 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I never played Super Mario 64, the game that most platform fans breathlessly compare to Super Mario Galaxy. I understand that SM64 was revolutionary in its 3D approach and was true to the Super Mario formula. However, beyond a shadow of a doubt, Super Mario Galaxy does live up to the reputation of its predecessors.

The game's intro is a nice bit of animation, something that I've not seen in a Mario game before. Before long, you're running, jumping, and transversing entire worlds in a few leaps and bounds. The game neatly uses the Wii control scheme to its advantage: shake your controller up and down, and you'll swing around a vine. Shake it side to side, and Mario will spin, knocking around your enemies. Once you pick up a turtle shell, you "throw" your remote overhand, similar to pitching in Wii Sport's baseball game.

Each of the galaxies (consisting of one to five levels) has a different them: one is a spacious garden, one is underwater, another is a haunted house, and so on. There are also unique powerups that work slightly differently from past Mario games: you can get fireballs, turn into Ice Mario (and skate over water rather than swim in it), turn into a Bee (and fly!), for example. Some of these powerups, like Ice and Fire Mario, are time limited: think of the Star invulnerability power-up in Super Mario 1, 3, and World. It's somewhat frustrating for the fireball powerup to only last for fifteen seconds, *and* you can only get these powerups in certain galaxies (you can't get the bee powerup outside of a specific bee galaxy, for example).

Those are my biggest complaints with the game, and honestly, they're not much. The game is colourful, vibrant, and packed with interesting characters and locations.
