Since Mario started his 3D platforming adventures, he tried to stick to a “one 3D platformer per system” type of format. However, after the success of Super Mario Galaxy, it’s no surprise that Nintendo tried to get a sequel in the works, bringing a 2nd Galaxy game into the mix on the Wii console. Bowser is at his tricks again in his takeover of the universe, and it’s up to Mario and lumas to stop him!

After how successful the Galaxy 1 playthrough was, I was looking forward to getting to Galaxy 2. Although I prefer the original installment, there were still plenty of things I liked about this game too, and after not playing it in years, I was very much looking forward to returning to this title.

With every Nintendo platform having a very early Mario title, it’s no surprise that within one year of the Wii’s release, Super Mario Galaxy graced our presences with a game that was….quite literally…out of this world! Taking a 3D Mario platformer like Super Mario 64 or Super Mario Sunshine and turning it into a spherical 3D platformer seemed kinda odd at first, but it turns out it was a very smooth transition considering. Now we have one of the greatest Mario games of all time, if not just one of the greatest games of all time.

I think it’s no secret I love Super Mario Galaxy, considering I love many Mario games in general, and truth be told, I was heavily considering this game for a very long time. But as usual, the timing never really felt right, especially considering at the time I hadn’t done Super Mario 64 or Sunshine yet. However, I wanted to make sure Galaxy was done this year in 2016. And sure enough, I was able to make it work.
