Hyper Short Review: Super Mario Galaxy 2

Posted by Earnest "Nex" Cavalli on Sat, May 22, 2010 at 6:00 AM

Sometimes I play games that are really rad. Instead of taking time away from playing them to tell you all why you should go out and buy them, I just decide not to. This is one of those times. Read this part, then hit the jump and then ... actually I don't care. By the time you read this, I've already gone back to playing Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Even the Starman is more awesome in Super Mario Galaxy 2!

What? You want an explanation? Fine assbutt.

I give you, Throwback Galaxy! Watch this video:

Did you get that? Though it only shows off the Whomp's Fortress section of Throwback Galaxy, hopefully you grasped my point. That point being that the game includes a galaxy which is made up entirely of recreated levels from older Super Mario Bros. games.

Question: How awesome is that?
Answer: Very, very much awesome.

Also, unlike the first Galaxy, this one includes a certain friendly dinosaur.

No, not that one...
