IGN's review.. Damn, this and the Super Mario Wii (looks fantastic as well) are really making me want to buy a Wii again. Damn you Nintendo. I know my bank account will be doomed when I see the next Zelda game

10 Presentation
Big and bold, with a progression that's been tightened up and streamlined. This is Mario at its core, and one of the best, if not the best, Nintendo has to offer.

10 Graphics
A testament to the amazing game engine from 2007: it still looks fantastic and beautiful.

10 Sound
A much stronger saturation of "big band" tunes here, and that's just awesome.

10 Gameplay
This is the absolute pinnacle of Mario gameplay: everything that makes a Mario game so incredibly fun is represented here. Both in 2D and 3D.

10 Lasting Appeal
If you just want to get to Bowser you'll be done in a few hours. But if you want to strut your gaming skills you'll be playing this one for weeks.

10
OVERALL Masterful
(out of 10)

I'm super-pumped for this, especially after that IGN review.

Gametrailers gave it 9.7/10 which is a massive score for them to give. Damn i now have to get this, Red Dead Redemption and Alan Wake.

I genuinely don't even understand IGN's review.

10 Overall/Presentation/Gameplay/Lasting Appeal, no problem.

10 in Graphics and sound? Uhh...what?

I understand enthusiasm for a game, but if you have separate categories you need to get someone who can actually separate the categories in their own head to do the review, otherwise don't have separate categories, just one overall score.

Mario galaxy 2 can have a 10 in sound/graphics....for one...most mario games have music that everyone remembers..and little sounds that make it easy to stand out...so i can see the sound getting a 10.....as for graphics...in this day and age...i would be concerned since the wii is 480p at best...but maybe they didnt judge on it being HD...maybe they judged on how it actually looked with the colors..and art...if you played the first mario galaxy you would know it looked very close to a xbox 360 game far as graphics went.....All the news of mario galaxy 2 really being mario galaxy 1.5 made me skeptical about the 10 score...But its a very highly anticipated game this year...alot of people loved the first...and there is a challenge / fun factor about it...even tho it is the wii and people write it off too quick...I'm glad the wii got a 10 out of 10...and there was a 9.7 out of 10 on another review...

Reviews are amazing as expected. My only hope is that they made this game more challenging than the first Mario Galaxy.

What's your complaint with the graphics and sound of SMG2? If the game gets the most out of the Wii's A/V capabilities, it should get a 10/10 there.

I borrowed Mario Galaxy 1 from a friend to finally try it out and I am not sure its for me... Its fun, looks good and I haven't put too much time into it but the controls are taking some getting use to, and I am not sure how much I like that the levels are spheres. I find its difficult to make small movements and find myself getting turned around all the time, I'm not sure if its that the round levels are disorienting or what.... Again I only played maybe 2 hours so far but those are my initial impressions.

Just picked up Galaxy 2 yesterday, haven't had much of a chance to play it yet.

I'll let you all know in a few days how I like it, so far it seems like the first one, which is awesome.
