Summary: The game is plenty of fun, but the abundance of loading screens ruins it. Every time you beat a level, play stops, it counts your stars/points, you click ok several times, find the next level, click in to play it, wait for the load, wait for the level intro, and finally once again you can play.
Summary: Im 24yrs old and have played almost all Mario games. And I have to say that I get tired of repeats. While this was a fun game, it was too close to the first Mario Galaxy. You even fight bosses very identical to the first. The thing I actually HATED about this game though, the lack of story. In the first you help rescue Peach and in the process, help Rosalina to repair the star ship and learn her back story.
Summary: Why isn't there 2 player coop with Luigi? Seems like they could have worked on that during development. I suppose the Wii couldn't handle the physics processing necessary to have 2 player controlled characters. I suppose the most obvious complaint against the title is that there's more Super Mario Galaxy, but it's never better, more clever, more beautiful, more fun... just more. It could have really used a change in setting....
Summary: Disappointing for a follow up to Super Mario Galaxy. The first one had such HEART and you cared about everything. This one is honestly just a cash-in, to milk off of the first one's success. It has none of the same plot that immerses you into caring for everyone and saving everyone(and I don't know about you guys, but I totally got teared up hearing about the story in the first one, I mean the STORY that gets read to you). This one has none of that care.
Well...sequels are never as good as the real deal.

Summary: I bought this game with my brother expecting a wonderful roleplay with quirky charachters and a good storyline, just like the original. I couldn't have been more wrong. I'm not saying it's bad or anything; it's not too challenging but not too easy, and the stars are fun, but I sorta felt I was collecting these stars with no purpose.
Summary: Honestly, I really fail to understand the big deal with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and how it's supposed to be a big improvement over the first one. With the exception of Yoshi being a playable character in a huge 3D environment, it's basically the same game with only minor additions. Now I'm not necessarily saying it's a BAD game or anything- it's most certainly not.
