    Default Mario Galaxy impressions

    I'm impressed, honestly. After Twilight Princess and Metroid Prime 3 didn't live up to the hype, I have to say, Galaxy is great after getting about 20 stars. Nice explanation on where the signature Mario star comes from(short & simple) and some great platforming.

    The one part I have to ding it on so far is the camera, half the time it feels like I'm fighting the camera more than I'm fighting Goombas(or any other enemies for that matter).

    Very true that there is not many enemies and the camera can be quite annoying.

    It does get quite difficult eventually. I'm now at a part where at 40 stars things are a little bit harder.

    The ice level is pretty cool. Especially when Mario gets to ice skate around the level.

    I'm not that far yet, but I'm liking it so far, it feels strange to enjoy a game nowadays...

    Yeah there are parts that are very enjoyable and the way Mario sets up the game is very easy to play.

    The biggest pain in the ass so far for me has been the Bouldergeist.

    Awesome game so far! I'm about 25 stars or so in. The first few levels are very easy, but the extra challenges are a bit more challenging. Excellent game. 9.5/10

    Too easy or just too quick to finish for good players (which can be done @ 60 stars apparently)?

    Some of the Comet-affected levels get tough. And although I don't have all the Green Stars yet, that whole thing sounds like it will be really tough.

    Only problem I have so far with the game is with the swimming levels camera, but I just haven't done enough of them enough to say that's it's broken or whatever.

    this is a great great game. It is a little easy for me right now but when my gf plays or someone else they seem to have a harder time with it. So maybe its because im use to the Wii? I dont know. But its a great game and the camera doesnt bother me at all. Usually if i get a position where i cant see u can press the C button and it kinda helps. I give this game a 10/10 Love it.

    Got the swimming down now, so that's been going good. One of the underwater fish bosses is pretty epic later-on... basically a shell fight in a fish bowl.

    As for too easy... two words: Daredevil Bouldergeist. With a "Daredevil" level one hit and you're toast. It took me over 30 minutes and many lives to finally beat him.

    What I love about the game is that it's constantly challenging in different ways. It's almost like solving puzzles while using your dexterity so it makes for a very entertaining game. There need to be more games like this than First person shooters...
