Super Mario Galaxy 2 Review
"For the first time since NES (unless you count Yoshi's Island which had the subtitle Super Mario World 2), There is a sequel to a Mario game on the same generation console. With a predecessor like Super Mario Galaxy, which was a smash hit, is it possible for Nintendo to make a better game?
To be completely honest, Its a yes and no affair. I loved Super Mario Galaxy and I love Super Mario Galaxy 2. The game is at the same time harder and easier than its predecessor. Galaxy 2 introduces several new concepts and puzzles that change the difficulty of the game by a good amount. One level in particular reminded me of the board game "Mousetrap" or more appropriately the marble game "labyrinth". However, the addition of the "kind code", or whatever Nintendo is calling it nowadays, renders these difficulty increases irrelevant and makes the game somewhat simpler than the original. The good thing about this system is you have to fail quite spectacularly to gain access to it..." - Aaron Caldwell
