Mario Galaxy:the true Mario64 sequel!

Nintendo has answerd the prayers of many gamers who didn’t quite get the feel for mario’s last adventure Mario sunshine. Although sunshine was a good platformer, it lacked a certain umph that made mario 64 hot. Well it seems that “umph” is back in mario galaxy! The water spraying jet pack is gone and we have good ol’ mario in his running and gomba stomping form. But he’s back with a twist, the levels in galaxy are now set up as if they’re little planets orbiting in space. And for those that worry all the levels will be tiny sized pieces, that won’t be the case. There will be full sized levels to run thru plus some new powers that enable mario to be transformed into a bee or a boo didley just to name a few. And for a first, a second player will be able to join the game in sort of a semi co-op mode. The way that works is who ever has control of the second wii remote, they’ll be able to attack enemies (by shooting stars at them), grab and hold mario (for instance if your mario and you jump to a moving platform but see your about to miss it, the second player can grab mario while he’s in the air and hold him until the platform moves back into a reachable position). Also at first glance it may seem disorientating but several hands on impressions have said that it feels fluid and fun. Mario Galaxy is gonna hit us this fall and it can’t get here soon enough! Peep some vids below of what is sure to become another mario classic!
Unit out…
