A GREAT Mario sequel!9/17/2011
It's rare to get a sequel to a Mario game with the same gameplay mechanics but this one has improved on everything the first Mario Galaxy had. I love that they included Yoshi as a playable character for instance. There are a lot more power-ups Mario can acquire along his adventure too. I'd say the difficulty is a little less than the first Mario Galaxy because of the extra help you can get. Another player can use a second wii remote to freeze enemies and gather items to help the main player. This is great if a younger kid is playing and needs help. If you've played and enjoyed any of the Mario games I'd recommend you get this one!
Another Must-Play Wii game, with Effective 2-Playe6/7/2011
I really can't understand why more people don't talk about the two player mode in this game. In the first Galaxy game, two player was a needless afterthought. In this game, it's a fun tactical enhancement. The second player can provide several services to Mario: * Collecting star bits (like the first Galaxy game) * Stomping low-level enemies * Freezing larger enemies, bowling balls, etc. * Collecting coins, even hard to reach ones * Generally helping Mario with the tougher challenges This is great fun. Finally Dad can help the kids through tough levels! We also like New Super Mario Bros. Wii for its full two-player mode. In that game, up to four people play equal, independent characters (Mario, Luigi, Toad...) But frankly, my daughter is a lot better at games than I am, and in Galaxy 2, I get to play her assistant. It's a great concept. In general, this is a solid upgrade from the first Galaxy game. The rough edges have been evened out, making it less frustrating and more fun overall. There are lots of hidden Galaxies, and periodically a character will invite you to a challenge as well. Five stars for another winning Mario title.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 is really really fun. The new levels are challenging and exciting, and using yoshi is a fun feature. I will say sometimes, basically until you get used to it, the camera angles can be a bit disorienting and even frustrating. But overall wonderful buy.
Bought it for my 12 yr. old Grandson. He found it to be fun and exciting.
I BOUHGT THIS GAME FOR MY DAUGHTER SHE ABSOLUTELY LOVES IT GRAPHICS ARE AWESOME
