      Having recently purchased a Wii, it makes sense that we should also be getting a bunch of new games. One of the games which we have acquired is Super Mario Galaxy, in which Mario has to save the princess by collecting power stars throughout different galaxies.

      There are lots of clever details to this game. Some of the music comes from the original Mario games on NES, which is funny because, of course, the kids we know have never played the


      original Nintendo. But for those of us who have, it’s a smile.

      It does seem rather easy at the beginning of the game to get lives. A lot of them. You can even go back to worlds you’ve already conquered, do them again, and build up more lives. Or if you are very patient on some worlds you can just run around in circles and collect up star bits until you have gained another life.

      Many of the enemies are familiar ...


      • - ie, from past Mario games, but it’s a different skill to defeat them because you’re using the Wii remote. Also, because the game is in 3 dimensions, sometimes you’re upside down. This can make it difficult to figure out when to jump, etc.

        The 3 dimensionality adds a nice twist to the game. Especially on one of the worlds where the gravity goes in different directions.

        The only major flaw in this game is that the second player doesn’t

        get to be Luigi, but rather just shoots. It’s convenient for the first player, because the second player can hold enemies - even making the rocks roll right into each other - but after awhile, as the second player, you really want to be able to do things. Although you can make Mario jump and you can shoot the enemies.

        It’s a fun game, and while I don’t play for hours on end, it can be entertaining for a while.
