The premise of the game is that Marios tropical holiday is ruined when hes stitched up by an evil look-alike for daubing graffiti all over the island. Rather conveniently, theres a water pump waiting for him to use, which not only washes away the mess but also doubles as a handy jet pack. The jet pack aspect means that whenever you fall off something you have the chance to immediately recover. This built-in safety net means the game can afford to be far more ambitious in its level design than ever before, with massive levels filled with trampolines, tightropes, water-powered windmills, huge coral reefs, and mountains and mountains of platforms.
The whole thing looks amazing, too, with the most realistic water ever seen in a video game, and a near-infinite draw distance. On top of all this are rideable, fruit-juice-spewing Yoshis, extra water nozzles, super-hardcore platform levels where Shadow Mario nicks your jet pack, and goop-generating bosses who seem to live to make Princess Peachs laundry a nightmare.
After the sweet but rather short pleasures of Luigis Mansion and Pikmin, you need have no fear that Mario Sunshine is of a similarly brief nature. There are a total of 120 shines to collect--the same number of stars as in Super Mario 64--and the game world is at least as large and far more interactive. This is without question the best game on the GameCube yet. That may be no more than you'd expect from a Mario game, but it's certainly more than most of us mere mortals deserve. --David Jenkins

Story- What's this? The princess being saved ISN'T the main part of the story? Well, she does get kidnapped a few times(I guess it was unavoidable...) but the game offers a fresh plot. Mario tries to have a relaxing vacation, but before he even arrives, Shadow Mario, his archenemy, as been wreaking havoc on Isle Delfino, where Mario plans to relax. Unfortunately, the town artist's drawing of Shadow Mario is in black and white, so all the people think Mario is guilty. His punishment is to clean up the town, and with that, his good name.
Graphics- While not the best on the GameCube, these are very nice graphics that remind me of the days of Super Mario 64 on the N64. There are some nice touches, too, that add to the gameplay, such as enemies exploding or Piantas(residents of the island) celebrating when you free them from Shadow Mario's paint. Very few, if any, graphical flaws make this one beautiful game to look at. 9/10
Control- The controls are very easy to learn and very hard to forget. Once you get down jumping much of the controls are already learned, and the rest of them are really simple, too. The one bad part is the camera, which you have to manually control, making it difficult in some areas, but that's not too much of a problem in most cases. 9/10
Gameplay- Finding all 120 Shine Sprites or those few coins, whatever your task may be, Super Mario Sunshine is a blast to play. You could be surfing on Bloopers or hanging from fences, even riding a roller coaster while destroying a mechanical Bowser(did it come back from Paper Mario?Read more ›
I recieved this game for my birthday on September 15, 2002. Let me tell you this is one of the best Mario Games I have ever had the pleasure of playing. Nice job nintendo. The game begins in an airplane. Mario and Peach are flying to the beautiful Isle Delfino for a much needed vacation. Unfortunately, things aren't so beautiful. A shady character has been vandalizing the Island and he looks similar to Mario. Mario is blamed for the mess and is forced to make things right again. No dont worry, this isn't another rescue Peach from Bowser ordeal. Mario meets up with FLUDD, a similar machine to the vacume cleaner in Luigi's Mansion, except it squirts water. Together, your goal is to catch the imposter and clear your good name. There are 6 worlds with 11 episodes(levels) each. Instead of stars, you try to gather Shine Sprites. The Shine Sprites will bring the beauty bacj to Isle Delfino. I believe there are over 100 Sprites you can gather. In Mario Sunshine you can do brand new things never thought possible in the previos series. With FLUDD you can use him as a hovercraft, turbo jet, and jetpack. Yoshi is also available for action. You can also do many other moves with Mario like those from Super Smash Bros. Melee (also a great game) like the triple kick. This game has some of the best graphics I've ever seen. If I could, I'd give this game way more than 5 stars. The only down I can think of is the camera. It's not as bad as people say, but it's not perfect. Otherwise this game if flawless. Here's how I rate it.
Controls 5/5 (Difficult to Master)
I hope this review helped you out. In my opinion, this is a must buy. Great for all ages!
