Summary: It was a gift and it did not play well. He said it was scratched too. I bought an up to date game. he was crying to make it play and I bought a new game to play and he still cried because he wanted to play this game. I am still on the look out for the new game.
Summary: I don't like this game because it says it's a two player game but what it really means is your second player can only play sometimes. I don't understand that what two kids aren't going to fight over the game because only one person can play all the way through. In the instructions it goes on to say this is meant for a one player game but you can invite your friend to play in co-star mode where you have limited access to the main character and you get to shoot and...
Wii fan - but not so much for more than one player

Summary: My 6 and 7 year old boys love the Wii. But, although this one looked great, and sounded great on some of the reviews... It really is only a 1 person game. The other person can "help" - but my boys also LOVE to play games with their cousins. so we often play with 3-4 players. So it was very disappointing from a multiplayer standpoint, especially considering how much they love super mario brothers and Mario Kart. So have to say a little disappointed..
Summary: I found the controls extremely frustrating. Just trying to walk straight, you go all over the place. I don't know if it's the nunchuk or the programming, but it's really annoying. And when you are trying to walk straight, and then the camera angle moves, you don't keep walking straight anymore. You have to keep pointing in a different direction to keeep going straight, but then he just ends up wandering all over.
Summary: I thought it was pretty fun except for the part where it wanted you to steal a golden shell to get a power star. The game even said that it's stealing. However, you can bet Browser with out that power star. I wouldn't had bought it if I would had known about the stealing part.
Summary: My husband and i bought Super Mario brothers and loved it so i thought i'd give the galaxy ones a try. It says that they are two player but what it doesn't tell you is that the 2nd player isn't really an active player, your a star and can only click on items for the first player, you don't actually get to be a person and play along side the first player.
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 thought that it would be fun for my family to play together. They like playing other Mario games together. But I was sad to learn that this is mostly a one-player game. Two can play, but the other one is just helping out the major player. One person played it long enough to find that out. Then we sold it. Don't have anyone here that likes to play for hours by themselves.
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??
