From the amazing diversity of galaxies to the incredible control scheme offered through the Wii Remote, Super Mario Galaxy takes the Mario action you know and love and transports it into a world of gravity-defying levels set amid the stars.
Whether you’re a Mario master or playing one of his adventures for the first time, you’ll actively jump from planet to planet with the motion-sensing and pointing capabilities of the controller. Mario’s newest move – the spin move – is performed by giving the Wii Remote a quick shake. It’s the most versatile move in the game and can aide Mario in his many discoveries. Additionally, the Wii Remote’s pointer is used to collect Star Bits, which can be thrown at enemies to stun them.
Another innovation involving the pointer is the new Co-Star Mode. In Co-Star Mode, a second player can manipulate the environment, helping the player who is controlling Mario by holding enemies in place and shooting Star Bits. The Co-Star can also help Mario perform special high jumps in coordination with the playing partner.
On top of all this you’ll find stellar graphics and spot-on camera controls. The camera faithfully moves with Mario, keeping you in perfect position to help him face each galaxy’s challenge. The depth of field created by each galaxy’s unique surroundings makes for a visually stunning, atmospheric experience. This is the must-have Mario game, for fans and the uninitiated alike.
