Summary: The series of 3D games that spawned from Super Mario 64 where great for many reasons, though the biggest thing that set them apart was the lack of linear play. In both Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, you were dumped in a course and free to choose your own path in trying to find out what the heck you were supposed to do. Enter Super Mario Galaxy.
Summary: i bought this for my 6 year old,he found it very difficult to play,even my 9 year old found it hard.they have many other games for older age groups which cause no problems. Iwould only recommend this game fpr older children.
Summary: Arrived quickly in perfect condition but my fault I had not realised this was largely a 1 player game so my 3 kids (expecting something like the Super Mario Bros game) were disappointed. Levels seem a bit basic and controlling with nunchuck seems awkward. Maybe this will improve with more play??
Maybe good for experienced gamers, not so good for younger kids

Much different than what I was used to, jumping for the coins Mario is known for. Being upside down and shot to other worlds ...
Excerpt: Fra i vari giochi che mi han prestato c'è super mario galaxy, adoravo il primo videogioco di mario e non ho fatto passare un attimo per provarlo. Abituato al primo videogioco sono rimasto un pò perplesso dalla tridimensionalità e ho fatto un pò fatica ...
