Summary

It's the greatest game which I have ever played!

The Good

Well, graphics are colourful, and controls are reliable. Musics is the best part in this game, nicely done music with orchestrated soundtrack, which adds atmosphere in the game.

Good thing is bubble blowing, where you get stuck in the bubble, and then you use star pointer to blow bubble around.

Rolling the ball is also one of the good things, which I discovered. You jump to the ball, and then you must tilt Wii Remote to the specific direction where you want to roll the ball.

The Bad

Controlling Mario or Luigi in Spring suit is kind of frustrating.

And even amongst other thing is, that there is one "grisly" death animation, where Mario or Luigi is Drowning, or possibly getting killed in Poisonous Swamp, which I founded too offensive for younger players.

The Bottom Line

It is actually same as Super Mario 64. You collect stars to gain access to more and more of the galaxies. Some of the galaxies can only accessed, like feeding Hungry Lumas, and even amongst other things. If you love 3D platformers, then you may love this game, because this game is AWESOME!!
