Now Playing: Super Mario Galaxy 2
A new game that I'm really enjoying is Super Mario Galaxy 2 for the Nintendo Wii. I've always been a huge fan of Mario, right from when I got my first NES and played Super Mario Bros. 1 at age 6. For fans of the franchise, Super Mario Galaxy 2 will definitely not disappoint.
If you liked the first Super Mario Galaxy game that was released back in 2007, you will love Super Mario Galaxy 2! It includes all of the planet-hopping fun from the first game and adds even more great game play. In this game, Mario gets to team up with his friend, Yoshi, which definitely adds a great element to the game. I've always loved Yoshi!
The various galaxies and planets that you encounter are vast and beautiful. The actual controls of the game are very fluid and intuitive. The perspective shifts in the game are quite interesting and they keep you on your toes. This game retains enough of the favorite classic elements that are found in the last Mario Galaxy game (collecting stars, coins, and completing each galaxy) as well as some new elements, such as collecting hidden Comet Metals, as well as new power-ups such as the drill and the cloud.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 seems to have an incredible amount of game play, which will allow you to keep playing and completing challenges for hours and hours. I'm finding this game to be challenging enough without becoming too frustrating. For fans of the series and even those who are relatively new to Mario games, I would highly recommend this game to anyone! Not just fun for kids, but fun for anyone who loves playing video games!
