Product Description

The ultimate Nintendo hero is taking the ultimate step into space! Become Mario as he traverses a galaxy of gravities! Travel in and out of gravitational fields by blasting from planet to planet and experience dizzying perspective shifts as you run upside-down through wild alien worlds that need to be seen to be believed. Shake it! Controlling Mario is as simple as can be with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. Move Mario with the Control Stick and shake the Wii Remote to perform a spin move or cue Ring Stars that launch you to and from planetary objects. You can even point at bits of stardust to collect them or latch onto Beam 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 you by pointing at and collecting bits of stardust, then launching them at enemies. Your friend can even sweep aside projectiles or stall enemies to help make Mario's adventure easier!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lunar Mario August 28, 2011
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
With all the hype Nintendo is generating with the upcoming Wii U and the 3DS, it is hard to believe that maybe in 2013 they will stop making games for the Nintendo Wii. Yet, with the influence of motion gaming from Nintendo, it really influenced the way we played games with the motion of the wrist. Yet, there are so many games that have been so definitive to showcase with the Wii. The biggest one in my book for adventure is Super Mario Galaxy. With the joy of seeing Mario in space, it really changed the perspective on how we play adventure games. But unlike Sony & Microsoft with platformers, Mario will always be king, not just in gameplay, but also control, and that now with a new lower price for Super Mario Galaxy, it definitely is a great time to battle Bowser in space once again.

Super Mario Galaxy, as a part of the Nintendo selects series, is definitely a great game from start to finish, as you are thrusted into space to rescue Princess Toadstool a.k.a. Princess Peach from the clutches of Bowser, as you not only brace yourself in space to save Peach, but also try and help Rosalina save her spaceship from the ruined damage. As you thrust yourself in space, you have so many dynamic enemies to master from a giant-sized spider spitting galactic venom, to Bouldergeist, a villainous enemy that is a deadly ghost that packs a punch when he protects himself with rock armor, and then grows vulgar arms. Graphically, the games looks amazing start to finish, while the music of the game brings celestial moods all the way to classic Mario themes from past games, to a epic orchestral Bowser showdown. The control of the game is very simple and easy to control Mario through the challenges from emptying trash to get a star, to trying to defeat foes without suffering damage to get stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A main Mario game on Wii? It's so much more than that... September 3, 2011
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You've probably seen how revolutionary Super Mario 64 was on the Nintendo 64. Well, imagine if the game was separated into mini planets, and you see Mario soaring through the air as he was launched into the air. That, my friends, is Mario Galaxy.

The game starts out with Mario roaming through a gorgeously detailed Mushroom Kingdom as he runs to Peach's Castle...for cake. But then, guess what? Not only does Bowser kidnap Peach again. He kidnaps Peach in a very epic cutscene! Unfortunately for Mario, a Magikoopa sends him flying into the galaxy, knocking him out.

Now, the main game is playing through very big and graphical 3D worlds bouncing on Goombas, collecting coins, and all kinds of other stuff. But, like Super Mario 64, you must collect Stars. Collect enough Stars to be able to play in another world, or maybe have Mario tussle with Bowser. If you were to play the game, you'll notice that everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is much, much deeper and more fun than I am describing it.

The music is nothing like I've ever heard in a Mario game. I mean, seriously. Once I played the game until after I beat the first Bowser boss, I was thinking "Oh, my god. These tracks are from a MARIO game??". The music also breathes air into the spacey atmosphere in the game.

The one major complaint I have with this game is that the 2-Player mode is stupid. There's almost nothing the second player can do to help the first player play through the game. Sure, he/she can collect Star Bits, launch them at enemies, and fling those...rubber..trees at enemies. But that's pretty much it. The second player doesn't even have his/her own character (Thanks, Mario Galaxy 2).

But other than the 2-Player mode, the game is amazing. It is one of the best Wii games you can buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Mario Game March 24, 2012
A Kid's Review
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Nintendo has made another great game of Mario.The graphics are fantastic, and the moves are awesome.The suits are numerous ,here are some that I have not seen in many games, Bee Mario,Spring Mario, and Boo Mario.The only disappointment I had was that I had was that you don't get to play with Yoshi,but you can play can play with him on Super Mario Galaxy 2.Here are two warnings if you get motion sick easily this would probably not be a good game for you, and it is two players but the second player can only collect star bits, that means he is not a character. Overall I think it is a good game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Mario 64 to the tenth power December 26, 2011
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played Super Mario since I got my first SNES for my ninth birthday and he's been, more or less, a major part of my experiences playing video games. Whether it was Super Mario World, or Super Mario All-stars or even Super Mario RPG (I am an RPG fanatic), Super Mario was and still is the SNES for me.

But I must confess, I never grew up with the N64 or the GameCube so perhaps my credendtials aren't as good as anyone who has played the Mario games I haven't on the GBA or the GameCube. I only ever got to play Super Mario 64 with my reletives. I downloaded Super Mario 64 on Virtual Console and, while it's still fun, it just doesn't hold my attention for long. I doubt I'll ever beat it.

All that aside, I hope you would still trust my judgement when I say this is the funnest and greatest 3D platformer I've ever played and it held my attention until I got all 120 stars, unlocked Luigi, and got 100 more as him.

This game is beautiful and plays like a dream. I honestly couldn't have imagined having so much fun shaking and pointing the Wii Remote but this game incorperates it in such a way that pointing and shaking go beyond mere novelty and actually make the game even stronger. Collecting star bits with the star cursor and then aiming at enemies while controlling Mario with the Nunchuck is a minor task in multi-tasking that is rewarding and stimulating. Mario himself plays spectacularly with all his classic Super Mario 64 acrobatic moves intact. His punch-punch-kick combo has been replaced with a simple spin-punch attack that feels less redundant and far more suited to attacking in multiple directions. Occasionally, Mario will have to pull off some tricky wall-jumping moves that feel reminiscent of wall-jumping in Mega Man X.
