Super Mario Galaxy 1.5
10 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After completing Super Mario Galaxy 2 which was actually a chore because for some reason I was never invested in the game at all. I was hoping for something original to a Mario game. You think by now Nintendo would switch things up rather than "Bowser captures the Princess" but that's the extent of the plot.

If there was one thing I was excited about more than anything else, that would be the music in this game. The first Super Mario Galaxy, which is one of my all time favorite games, had a full orchestra to accompany the score and it's probably the best video game, heck better than most movie scores I have ever listened to. It's a real marvel and Super Mario Galaxy 2 is no exception. I still think the first one had the upper hand cause it had the Good Egg Galaxy theme. If you don't know what it is, look it up on youtube or something.

But the core of the Mario games has always been about gameplay and although Mario's gameplay is fun, it doesn't really deviate too much from the original. You still waggle the controller for Mario's spin attack and the butt stomps and flying across to different planets. Nothing much as changed there. The only real addition is the use of Yoshi which adds an extra layer to the gameplay. Mario finds an egg, hatch it and ride Yoshi and uses his tongue to eat things and swing across. Sometimes you get these hot peppers and Yoshi runs real fast. These areas are quite fun.

One thing that always bothered me about Mario games is that for a game for kids, Mario sure picks on enemies a lot. He reminds me of a bully in school wanting your lunch money. In this case, Mario would bully a sleeping monster or a baby still in its egg and he would pick a fight with it just to kill it and steal that star he's been looking for. As I'm fighting this enemy that I just woke up from its sleep, I felt it was no wonder this thing wanted to kill me. If I was woken by someone landing on me or simply hitting me, I might try to fight you too.

It's still a Mario game and there are surprises in store like the Throwback Galaxy which I had a lot of fun in. Not a lot of the worlds you go in really impressed me this time. In fact, I wanted them over with quickly, which thank God it does. However, Mario is Mario and I'm hoping for a third installment in the series that will take a little more chances with this franchise.

I wonder what the next new Mario game after Galaxy is going to be. Super Mario Other Dimension?
