I have only recently returned to consoles, tempted by my wife's Wii this Christmas. In the past NINTENDO has made a number of bad decisions yet the company always manages to land on its feet for nothing else but for a single reason: it never forgets that gamers want first to have fun. And SUPER MARIO GALAXY II is an excellent example.

The Wii console may have been made such a huge success story by applications such as Wii-FIT, but it will be remembered for the fun it offers with games such as this one. SUPER MARIO GALAXY II makes the Wii shine at its best.

Princess Peach cannot seem to stay ...un-kidnapped more than a week, so her faithful plumber has to move heaven and earth to save her - yet again...But do we really need an excuse to dive in this galaxy of magic mushrooms, star-bits and coins, secret levels and surprising solutions to, apparently, insurmountable obstacles?

The levels blend beautifully 2D and 3D environments and the controls work superbly. I hadn't touched a console since my University years and had to get used to the controls of ZELDA: TWILIGHT PRINCESS - yet found the controls of SUPER MARIO GALAXY II to fit like a glove from the very first moment.

This installment is not one you can breeze through, there are challenging moments. If you get stuck in a level you can ask for a mini-tutorial - but keep in mind that there is no free lunch in this galaxy: your need for assistance will be marked. Then again, retrying a level was never more fun.

There is invincible Rainbow-Mario, Rock-Mario, Spring-Mario and Cloud-Mario. And then there are Lumas and Yoshi. Every world has been imaginatively designed and gorgeously drawn. It is like a supernova of creativity exploding again and again. I believe this to be the best looking game on the Wii.

If you played the original Super Mario Galaxy, then you likely won't need any convincing in trying this sequel. If you haven't, don't worry about missing out on some sort of background story--it's a Mario game, the story is one sentence long--Bowser kidnapped the princess, and it's Mario to the rescue (sorry for the spoiler). But boy is the game-play fun; my first play session with this game was 1 hour and 24 minutes long; it felt like a breeze, and I only stopped because I had to. The controls are as spot on as ever; if you haven't played the original, it might take you some time to get used to them; but if you put in the time you will be rewarded with the best platforming game, bar none; and if you did play the first Mario Galaxy, within minutes you will feel as comfortable with the controls as you've ever been. The levels are completely original, not recycled material, the galaxy map is streamlined, easier to navigate than the world-hub in the original. I've just finished the first world (sort of, there's some secret stuff I'm missing); I'll update this review as I proceed; I didn't quit on the original until I got 120 stars with both Mario and Luigi. I'll do the same with this. Whether you are a youngster or an adult gamer, you should try and play this excellent game (BTW, it's metacritic average review score is 98%, making it the second best reviewed game after Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (available as a downloadable game on the Wii, and bettering the now third place spot for the original Super Mario Galaxy). Thank you Nintendo!

As a Mario game: 5/5, but just not the BEST videogame. I really like it. It has many cool features, including:

POWERUPS: I really like the diversity of the Powerups, though I wish they had put more of them in each level. My personal favourite is the Bee Mushroom, wich makes you super light, gives you the power to climb on, yes, Honey, and even lets you fly!

GALAXIES: Instead of just plain old singular levels, this game groups them into Galaxies. Each Galaxy has 2 or 3 levels each, in wich your mission is to collect a golden Power Star.

LUMAS: A Luma is basicaly an alien shaped like a star. They are VERY cute, and they will give you often useful tips.

YOSHI!: For the first time in Super Mario Galaxy history, Yoshi, the green, hungry friend of Mario's, joins you on the hunt for Power Stars! Using his toung, you can: gobble up enemies, engage exclusive Yoshi Powerups, reach new hights, and more!

BOSSES: This game has some of the most fun and funNY bosses ever! One of my personal favourites is a GIANT snowball that rolls around his battle arena, where you have to hit him on the nose every time that he comes close to you; but my favourite boss is good ( well, tecnically, BAD) old bowser, who has some of the best

MUSIC: in the game. His final battle music is just: WOW. I. LOVE. IT. I can't POSSIBLY tell you what it's like, but I know for a fact that you'll love it to.

All in all, an AWESOME game.

Les graphiques sont superbes. Le niveau de difficulté du jeux est assez élevé pour apporter un certain challenge sans être trop difficile pour nous décourager. Le jeux est en 2 volets (la collecte des étoiles dorées et des étoiles vertes) ce qui rallonge le temps de jeux de façon considérable (nous en avons pour notre argent). Ceux qui ont aimé Super Mario Galaxy 1, seront agréablement surpris par le deuxième jeux.

It was enjoyed by all 7 of my nieces and nephews. It is an added bonus of 2 players at once.

Awesome game. Just like the first galaxy with a few interesting and new perks. I think this game is an excellent introduction to the power of wii and plays a huge role in spatial recognition. Thanks again for the quick delivery and the totally worth while price.

What else can I say but: Classic Mario Fun. Nothing shy of a brilliant game with hours of game play. Wouldn't have expected any less from this sequel.
