Summary: I was excited about this game just like everyone else with a gamecube and immediately ran out, stuffed my £40 over the counter, took it home and shoved it into my gamecube with high expectations of another Mario 64. Boy was I wrong. It started off ok, nice intro sequence of Mario and his pals, however as soon as the game really starts your left thinking, is this really a Mario game??
Summary: The grahics are brilliant but the gameplay is just the same as Mario64. Secondly Fluud IS the only difference between these games. And thridly do ot buy this game if you are expecting something different, yes its fun like all Mario games but its so boring and believe me you wont get all 120 shines. Extremly disapointing.
Excerpt: "...Almost like the intro from Super Smash Brothers Melee. I was presented with poor FMV and voice acting worse than a Dragon Ball Z episode. I began the game. My first job, to find the wonderfull backup that squrts water. This would enable me to clean the run-way where the aeroplane carrying mario just landed. How wonderful. Seriously. Then, for no reason other than the island Mario had just landed was made dirty by someone who "looked" like Mario ...
Pros: It's Mario .
Cons: It's really, hard . It is not fun . It smells .
Average platforming action, made worse by stupid mistakes

Summary: Well Mario is back. But unfortunately, the game just doesn't live up to expectations. Mind you, I guess it never could. The main problem with this game is that it just feels rushed, and as if the makers have slapped together the last half of the game because they needed a quick release. The game starts off really well, offering fun and enjoyment. The idea is that there is a mysterious figure posing as Mario while spreading graffiti about the place.
Excerpt: Efter att ha spelat "Mario 64" som kom till Nintendo 64 som är en av mina favoritspel så såg jag verkligen fram emot det här spelet. Snyggare grafikn och ljud var ju garanterad, så vad kunde bli fel? Mycket tyvärr. Det här spelet förlitar sig på evig repetition som gjorde mig trött på att spela det. Vad handlar Super Mario Sunshine om?
Excerpt: Ma dai...la nintendo si è proprio sprecata! E io che sono un loro fan fino dal primo mario bros mi aspettavo molto di più da questo capitolo della saga! Come giocabilità va bene ma...è uguale a mario64!! Lo stesso identico sistema di gioco! Entra nel Livello, prendi la stellina(o shine, in questo caso), e prendine una settantina per andare a sfidare Bowser...dai ragazzi! Un po' di serietà! Nonostante tutto c'è qualcosa di buono però..tipo gli YOSHI! ...
