Excerpt: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is one of the biggest releases for the video game industry. Families that enjoyed Super Mario Galaxy will naturally take an interest in Super Mario Galaxy 2. Let me start off by telling all ya’ll that this sequel is more difficult than the first. Nintendo put a lot more Mario content into this game, and much of it is harder than the original. Yoshi headlines the additions to this Wii game. There are some different new power ups.
Excerpt: The most obvious aspect of Galaxy 2 is that it is built completely off of the original Galaxy 's engine. Thus, instead of reinventing the wheel for their newest title, the development team was able to focus completely on making improvements and crafting the best game possible. Now, the level design is more focused, interesting, and varied than ever before — the best aspects of Galaxy have been amplified, the lesser portions revamped or tossed aside, and new gameplay...
Excerpt: Can a direct sequel to one of the best platformers of all time have the same impact as the original? Super Mario Galaxy was so different, so unique, so exquisitely made that it's without a doubt the best game on the Wii. So good, in fact, that the 9/10 I gave it back in November 2007 seems more than a little harsh. What can I say? I must have been suffering from game fatigue.
Excerpt: 3-2-1, blastoff! It’s time to explore one really wacky universe in Super Mario Galaxy 2 with your old pal Mario. Is this sequel new and cool enough for you to take another interplanetary ride with the plumber who’s always dedicated to saving Princess Peach? I want to make it clear that Nintendo hasn’t redesigned the wheel here. It’s very similar to the last game.
Conclusion: Super Mario Galaxy 2 nous convainc totalement. Ce deuxième volet a su s'inspirer du précédent pour aller encore plus loin dans les challenges, les mises en scène des plateformes, les costumes de Mario. On se plaît à parcourir encore une fois les galaxies à la recherches des étoiles, on se plaît toujours à découvrir de quoi sera fait le prochain monde traversé. Les challenges de ce Mario Galaxy sont toujours présents, parfois un peu plus poussés.
Pros: Des challenges très présents, Diversité des mises en scène, Rythme du jeu, Nouveautés (Yoshi, costumes...)
Brilliant platformer a surefire hit for virtually all ages.

Summary: Parents need to know that Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a nearly all-ages platformer with only mild cartoon violence. Mario is the quintessential video game protagonist, an unquestionably good soul journeying to save his princess from an evil monster named Bowser. He fights enemies, but only those of the cartoonish, non-human variety and using whimsical attacks, such as ground pounds, spins, and special abilities that let him turn into a rolling boulder or use a dinosaur’s...
Summary: For me, when Nintendo released Super Mario 64 , it showed me that 3D platforming was the future. But, because of the camera and other control issues that had yet to be polished, I wasn't very excited for the future of 3D platforming from Nintendo. Mario's outing on the GameCube didn't do much to win me over, either.
