Super Mario Galaxy is the latest installment of the Mario platformer series and designed specifically for the Nintendo Wii. In this adventure, Princess Peach is kidnapped and Mario must once again rescue her, but this time the pursuit takes Mario out of Mushroom Kingdom and into space.

In this area of space, miniature planetoids form vast chains that Mario can jump to and fro. These planetoids may be spherical or flat and the unique gameplay element in Galaxy is that Mario can now run around these surfaces and planetoids without falling.

Mario is controlled using the stick on the Nunchuk. The A button jumps and can be timed to do a triple-jump like in previous Mario games. Shaking the Wii-mote will make Mario spin, which can be used as an attack, a way to pull items up form the ground, and a way to launch Mario into space. The B button brings forth a star-shaped cursor for interacting with objects.

The title has sold:
December 2007: 1,123,070 units (US) (Source)
November 2007: 1,123,070 units (US) (Source)

Eurogamer Review: 10/10

Eurogamer - November 5, 2007


Submitted by rikitikitik (35) at 5:30PM PST on November 4, 2007


"Super Mario Galaxy is an embarrassment. It's an embarrassment for platform games. It's an embarrassment for adventure games. It's an embarrassment for Nintendo and an embarrassment for the Wii. What have we all been playing at in the ten years since Super Mario 64 came out? This is what gaming ought to be like."

1UP Review 9.5/10

1UP - November 2, 2007


Submitted by Joe80 (4) at 3:48PM PST on November 2, 2007


"demonstrates the difference between a good game & a great game: attention to detail and reliable, consistent game rules. The worlds challenge the assumptions of a platformer, but the new rules always operate consistently. There are no cheap sections of memorization. Intuition, logic, and reactions win the day. Excellent reactions, mind you Galaxy is unforgiving at times, like the best classic Mario games. Anyone can beat Galaxy, but mastery demands genuine skill."
