      Mario time and time again has managed to revitalize the platforming genre. Galaxy is no exception, as it takes players out into space and gives them an entirely new perspective on how inventive games can be.

      Though Mario games have never served up much in the way of story, this game decides to continue the trend. At a festival in the mushroom kingdom celebrating the stars, Mario comes to visit just as Bowser shows up, and yes, once again kidnaps the princess. The mushroom kingdom is ripped into space where Mario meets a new princess �Rosalina,� whom decides to help him on his quest. The game features some absolutely beautiful cinematics, with incredible direction.

      Presentation is one

      of the most important aspects of Galaxy, and it comes off nearly flawless. It is without a doubt the most beautiful Wii game out to date. It shows what this system is really capable of, which in some aspects is saddening to see every developer under using its power. You�ll be traveling to planets, both big and small, all with incredibly diverse surroundings. A few great examples are worlds such as one that is a free floating waterway where you surf on top of a sting ray, or a world that is both half ice, half molten lava. It almost seems as if the developer used these galaxies to their advantage by using whatever popped into their ...

      • head and sticking it into space.

        Sound is just as polished as presentation. Surprisingly, Mario has some impressive voice acting. While his voice acting manly consists of sounds he makes as he jumps and hops around, it does convey emotions better than in any previous Mario game. The entire game has a beautifully orchestrated score that plays where ever you go. Players will find themselves humming along with each song in the sound track.

        Gameplay is the most important factor in �Super Mario Galaxy.� Traveling to these vast galaxies sends you into hundreds of different situations. In one moment you can be sitting on a giant planet made of water, the next moment you�ll be rocketed to

        a cube made of panels that disappear as you walk on them. Gravity is used to abuse the physics engine. On a small spherical object one could jump and rocket themselves off, only to be caught by the gravity and sent spinning around the world. Granted, when players first play Galaxy they will notice slight disorientation, but the learning curve is slim to none.

        Few games are as well polished in every area as Super Mario Galaxy. If I had to point out any flaws it would be that the game finishes far too quickly, and is far to easy. Other than the difficulty, the game is near perfect and is a must buy for any Wii owner.
