Feels like it's lost the magic; the rhythm of the game is all wrong, and compared to the previous 3D Mario encounter, Sunshine is extremely restrictive on the player's actions in favor of telling a coherent plot

  • something Mario games have never, ever needed. The game holds your


hand far too much, forcing you to complete events in a preset order rather than allowing you to go anywhere and do anything as the level design suggests.

Controlling Mario is amazing, though. The portly plumber stops on a dime - it's too bad most of the levels never really put his skills to the test. The game is full of boss encounters that look tough but aren't, and vice versa - bosses that you'd think to be easy are often times the hardest ones in the game.

Overall - fairly unpolished, a Mario game that fires on all the wrong cylinders. It's not BAD, per-say, but falls way below the standard we've come to expect from Nintendo.
