    The first manta ray surfing level was cake. The second one was pure evil though.

    Anyway, I'm just looking forward to a 3D Yoshi that doesn't just spit and dissolve anytime he touches water. Yes, I'm talking about you, Super Mario Sunshine.

    Awesome, SMG was the reason I got a Wii in the first place. All I ask is for the purple coins challenges to be removed (or at least have them not as painful as Battle Rock). Bad memories.

    Loved SMG. More of the same would be just swell.

    I do not however see the point of reusing old levels, even if they have new objectives. If it's going to only be 10 percent, would it really be that hard to create new levels for that extra 10 percent as well? It just seems pretty lazy, and it would be worth it to put forth the extra effort to make it 100 percent new.

    But that's just me. Still, I am happy, just not jazzed.

    They're old content, but remixed.

    The idea is that they could not do things with the old levels they wanted to. Maybe because of limitations, or experience, or time, but there are some things in certain levels that they wanted to expand. Maybe stuff like Matter Splatter that was extremely inventive, but not a full level.

    I think, for all intents and purposes, it's better to let them make the game they want to make. EAD Tokyo thrives on enjoying the game they're creating and if they want to bring in the 10% of stuff they regret not doing in the first game, then god bless 'em, I'll play it with a smile.

    In an interview with IGN, Reggie said this game is suppose to be designed more for the more experienced Mario fan. I hope he is telling the truth. Some of the harder stars in Galaxy were fantastic.

    I hope this game has no comets. Since they are reusing so many assets, it would be nice if every star was unique.

    Most of them weren't bad, but having to restart the on-rails one after missing one coin? Or the one with the vanishing tiles? Those levels can die in a ditch.

    one thing that really struck me as odd in SMG was how the flying item was integrated only into one single level.

    and the only thing i dont want to come back AT ALL is throwing bombs at freaking switches...

    Aw man. The vanishing tiles levels succkkkeed. But it did provide a challenge, which a lot of games don't bother to do anymore. So I'll welcome more this time around too.

    I had trouble with that for the longest time until I realized that you just had to throw them onto the coin markers.

    And Luigi's Purple Coins was also one of my favorite levels.

    I agree, the linearity and the way they cut levels when your getting a specific star turned me off from the game.

    Mario 64 IMO is leagues ahead of Galaxy, there's no exploration, which is one of the reasons I love Mario 64.

    Super mario galaxy is THE reason to own a Wii. Its truly a wonderful game, from the artwork to the story to the gameplay. Its up there with super metroid on the snes and some of the all time best games ever made. I still enjoy the soundtrack.

    Mario 64 IMO is leagues ahead of Galaxy, there's no exploration, which is one of the reasons I love Mario 64.

    This is actually why I loved Galaxy so much. Every star felt different and new instead of "I did this before, except this time I SHALL TURN LEFT". While I did appreciate Mario 64's open worlds and freedom, the much more detailed level design and incredible variation in Super Mario Galaxy more than made up for that loss.

    The thing I REALLY liked about Mario Galaxy is how seamless the gameplay changes were from level to level while still being immensely varied. Mario 64 and Mario Sunshine were both good, but Mario 64 focused mostly on regular 3D platforming and Mario Sunshine had the FLUDD. While Mario 64 was great when it came out, there are a few levels going back that are either very sparse, boring, frustrating, or a combination of the above.

    Super Mario Galaxy had a bunch of stuff in each level and no gameplay concept was ever really done more than twice. Nearly every stage was different from the one before it, and only two stages were really clones of previous ones (there were two Honeybee galaxies and two space fortress type galaxies). The controls were nearly flawless (there were some problems with positioning the camera on spherical planets, but thankfully this was only a problem in getting three out of the 120 stars), the uses of the Wii remote were clever, the levels were incredibly colorful and amazing to look at, and the music was beautiful. I haven't had that much fun with a video game since Super Mario Bros 3, and that was the first video game I ever played. To me, saying "would you like Super Mario Galaxy 2?" is like saying "would you like more nectar of the gods?".

    I consider 64 and Galaxy to be different beasts. One is not superior nor inferior to the other. Nostalgia makes me prefer 64, but that's because 3D platforming was alien to me and I was enthralled by the newness.

    I got both of those on my first try. Throw them at the little yellow things. I don't know how people had so much trouble with it. You don't even need to notice the yellow things if you just put bombs where their blast will hit as many things at once as possible. Do the people having trouble throw a bomb per piece of trash, or something?

    Generally, 64 has you finding the new in well-tread zones whereas Galaxy is constantly sending you off to the unfamiliar. Galaxy is more linear, but I think linearity gets treated unfairly as some evil of game design.

    The disadvantage of that is the fact that entire games could be built out of concepts that Galaxy briefly skimmed over. I kept running into awesome things, beating them in less than 5 minutes, and then never seeing them again.
