Super Mario Galaxy 2

Super Mario Galaxy 2 will appeal to boys and girls ages 8 & up.

“Super Mario Galaxy 2 is an action platformer for Wii that continues the space-based fun begun by the 2007 runaway hit Super Mario Galaxy. Featuring out-of-this-world platforming across a wide array of unique planets and space environments, players can go it alone as Mario or team up with his old buddy Yoshi as they platform and puzzle-solve to their hearts content.

Additional key features include new and returning power-ups, special power-up abilities when teamed with Yoshi and the new drill mechanic that allows Mario burrow into and through planets.”

What you need to know:

* It costs around $45

* CNET gave the game it highest rating of 5 out of 5 stars.

What people are saying:

“This is not only the new standard against which every 3D platformer must now be judged, but it also seamlessly integrates so many elements from Mario’s 2D roots that it stands toe-to-toe with even its genre-defining progenitors.” CNET

“A new surprising gameplay twist every few minutes, great nostalgic moments, deep challenges if you want them.” Wired.com

Pros:

* Easy to set up

Cons:

* Takes a while to learn the game but once you learn it, then it is really fun.

Key Game Features

 Mario collects stars as he travels from galaxy to galaxy. Every level is new, but the game retains the charm, sense of wonder and beauty in line with Mario’s history. Mario works his way through the various levels, sometimes upside-down, sometimes floating from place to place.

On some stages, Mario can find an egg, smash it open and hop onto the back of Yoshi. Yoshi can use his tongue to grab items and shoot them back at enemies, or to snag attach points and swing across chasms.
Yoshi has an interesting diet. When he eats a Dash Pepper, he gets so hot and frenzied he can run up steep inclines and vertical walls. When he eats a Blimp Fruit, he inflates like a balloon and floats to new heights.
New power-ups include a drill that Mario uses to tunnel through the planet’s surface all the way to the other side of a planet.
Skilled players will want to collect new Comet Metals, which will unlock harder levels with even more challenges.

Final thoughts

I would buy it as a gift for a friend

The best thing about the game to me is all of the new characters and power-ups introduced to the Super Mario Galaxy series.

    I love video games too. They are a great way to experience how someone else would create a world (the designers). You can run through their mazes or collect prizes along the way. Video games are a great way for kids to play. I am also a big fan of the traditional way for kids to play by using their imaginations with good old fashioned toys they can hold in their hand. We have some of the best toys in the world offered if anyone is interested. Our toy shop is called The Imaginative Child and you can find us at http://www.imaginativechild.com . We have some of the best imaginative play toys available.
