Sooner or later, it had to come to this. Super Mario Galaxy is out now, and has been for quite a while... and there have been no blog posts about it. ~E~ doesn't have it, and I'm not sure about EG but I do. Oh dear, it seems the blame is on me. Lazy me.
Seriously, this game is awesome. You don't realise it when you first get it, but it really is genius. I mean, the graphics are good, the gameplay is great, and the music is nice, but there is some underlying feel here... it won't work if you are the only one in a house or something, or the game is somewhere secluded, but when I had the TV in the lounge, I felt it's repercussions. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a /main/ part of the game, it's not featured in other reviews as a main point...
...but the 2 player mode is awesome. Player 2 doesn't really do much, collecting star bits and helping Mario with his jumps, freezing enemies - but it's pick up and play. Many a time my brother or sister has walked into the room and just picked up a wiimote. It just feels... right. Not to mention the fact that freezing Chomp Heads or Boulders so that they smash into each other gives you a load of starbits...
OK, so I may have gone a bit over the top on the two-player aspect of the game - but it's still an awesome game.
More to come.
And ~EG~ - Don't create one-time tags please, tags are for ease. If you do I have to delete the tags and it takes me ages.
