Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)
Advantages: great story, 3d graphichs which is different for a mario game
Disadvantages: some levels can be a bit difficult!
Here is a bit about the plot in this game:
This game starts off where the first game ends off, Mario and Princess Peach are eating cake celebrating at the Star Festival, meanwhile Bowser plots his next attack and eats the Grand Stars to gain more power so he can take over the galaxy and kidnap the Princess again and finish off his evil master plan. Bowser grows up to a massive size and comes back to attack the Princesses castle and takes her hostage and returns to outer space, to the centre of the universe. Mario then jumps into his own spaceship and follows Bowser to stop him and his evil plan. He sets out on his journey where he comes across more Lumas (like from the first game) and needs to collect more Powerstars (also similar to the first game).
I really enjoyed the story throughout this game, as I had already the first played Mario Galaxy game it was nice that it continued on so thoroughly from the 1st game,, it was good as it stayed true to the usual Mario story line, though it has been modernised and changed to make it more interesting, every Mario fan enjoys saving the Princess from Bowser and being the hero and this game provides just that.
The controls on this game are quite easy to master, the interface is also not to hard to understand or navigate through. This game is 3d play, this means that Mario is free to move anywhere on the screen (not just from left to right), this was quite confusing for me when I first played this game but it is easy to get used to.
You meet a lot of Mario's old enemies in this game and there are also a few new ones introduced. Also there are (like many of the Mario Platforming games) Power ups such as the old mushrooms and fire flowers, there is also a new Spin Digging suit that allows Mario to dig into the ground and jump out the other side of a planet, a Rock Suit that allows Mario to break through hard objects like rocks and boulders and the Cloud suit that allows Mario to create temporary clouds to jump on so then he can reach far away or hard to reach platforms.
You can play this game multiplayer up to 2 players, Mario and Luigi play co-operatively and move through levels together, this is a good feature as it means players won't have to wait for their turn and you can play with another person together at the same time. This is great as me and my fiancé normally turn into big children and fight over who will play first when we are playing games.
The graphics on this game are what you would expect from the Nintendo Wii, they are bright colourful and cartoon styled, they could be described as quite child-like compared to games available on the Xbox or Playstation, but I think that this is what attracts Nintendo fans as games are light hearted and fun to play/look at.
The music on this game is motivating and gets you pumped up to participate in the races. It is upbeat and has a fast tempo and is not out of place compared to what you would normally find in a Nintendo game.
You should be able to pick up this game in any Game, HMV or Gamestop locally, or if you can also purchase it on the internet. I bought this game for around £35 in HMV as this was the best deal at the time, however I bought this about 2 months ago so it probably hasn't decreased much in price. I can see this game for as cheap as £20 on the internet so if you don't mind having to wait on it, you may save some money buying it online. I got a lot of play time out of this game and think it was a great buy.
Overall I think this is a great Mario game and just as good as the first Mario Galaxy game, there is a really entertaining storyline that fans will enjoy and it is nice that the story carries on from the 1st game, however a new player shouldn't find it hard to pick this game up and enjoy it as well, I really enjoyed playing through this game and saving the Princess. I think that this game was well worth the money, though once you have completed it, it gets kind of boring. Apart from this I would recommend this game to any Mario fan or to anyone who enjoys platform style games. I give this game 4 out of 5 and really enjoy playing it with my fiancé and the family.

Summary: overal great buy, mario galaxy is definitelty a good game to get into!
