This game is a masterpiece, a stroke of genius, a Mariogasmic concoction of epic proportions. This isn't coming from some new-age fanboy, either. I was playing The Smurfs on Colecovision, Mario Bros on the Atari 2600, and zapping Ducks on the NES before many of you were out of diapers, or even old enough to play a video game.
Remember that feeling you got in the pit of your stomach when you played Mario 64 for the first time? It was better than having your first bike, or that cool new toy, or even better than the time you got Super Mario 3.
Well, when Sunshine didn't deliver that classic Nintendo feeling, it was disappointing to say the least. Sure, the game had its moments, but it just didn't evoke those feelings of joy previous titles had. The franchise had produced a dud for the first time ever.
Thankfully, with SMG, Mario is back -- and he's better than ever. Trailers cannot possibly do this game justice -- it has to be experienced to truly be appreciated and judged.
From graphical enhancements that maximize the Wii's capabilities to the full-scale orchestra used to create the games music, Galaxy has it all.
Bravo, Nintendo. Bravo.
