1UP Yours – Pseudo review of Super Mario Galaxy


In this weeks episode of the 1UP Yours show, Shane Bettenhausen(EGMs reviews editor), having finished the game, shares why he thinks this is the best game on the Wii. Here are some of the points he makes at around the 18:00 mark :

Warning : Shane does go into a spoiler or two on some of the surprise levels that he saw

Pros :
– Hated the game for making him love his Wii
– Says he hasn’t felt this way about a platformer
since Mario 64, it takes everything that that game did and evolves it in new crazy ways
– An instant must buy, must play
– Mario kicks the shit out of Ratchet and Clank
– Overall package is stunning and shocking
– More open ended and takes more ques from western game design

Cons :
– Graphics aren’t that great
– Some controls are inconsistent. He points out the motion controls for shooting fireballs

One of the final comments he made on the podcast was that the 1 year delay on Super Mario Galaxy, resulting in it being “Immaculately polished”, makes him feel even more optimistic for MGS4 despite its delay.
